Just a quick note to let you all know that while I like Chrome as a browser, my pictures here do not always show up. It seems to be a browser issue because in firefox they show just fine.
I had leftover carrots, so today they are paired with a bologna sandwich with some cheese on the side. The bread: slices of cork, the bologna: slices of pink pencil erasers and the cheese: slices of yellow erasers. The same yellow erasers I used for the yellow egg yolk in egg salad. The mustard is yellow ochre paint.
I save lots of little things I think I might be able to use. Corks are one of those things. I've already used an artificial cork to make chicken salad, and as I was cutting up the cork the slices looked like sliced turkey breast, but I really wanted to have a vegetable with the turkey.
It just came to me...toothpicks! I cut some pieces of toothpick and use cadmium orange paint, and I had carrots. The gravy is brown paint mixed with white glue. Nest I want to make a turkey plate with peas. But I'm still working on it.
This is not my idea...but I thought it was just too cute. For those who do exteriors of their dollhouses this would be perfect for the yard.

Welcome to my Blog.
My name is Carol Graham and I've been making 1/12" miniatures since I was a kid, long before I had any free cash to spend. I started this blog to dispel fears that this hobby needs to be expensive. It doesn't and I'll try to demonstrate that through my tutorials.
