|My Museum in Miniature|
This was such an easy way of making the museum. The bookcase was already divided into the 'boxes', it had a back wall, and the shelves were adjustable so I could select the height I wanted for the rooms (galleries).
The hardest part was finding a home for all the books and photo albums that were displaced in favour of my mini treasures! Some ended up in the antique Chinese chest we use as a coffee table; others were lugged out by the armful to the studio and into a big cupboard I have out there.
One of these days I may change one of the museum galleries. I have in mind a display with a 'childhood toys' theme. In fact I've made a start. I painted a miniature rocking horse and ripped off its fake hair. Last Sunday, at our grand-daughter's show jumping competition, I cut some real horse hair from Rebecca's horse, Digger's tail! That will be perfect for the mini horse's mane and tail. Thanks, Rebecca, and Digger!
