Quarter Scale One Room Schoolhouse 2006
Several years ago while shopping at a flea market, I came across this adorable school shaped tin. I bought it thinking it could have a school room scene in it. Recently, the Quarter Scale Connection had School Days Roundtables and I bought the student and teachers desk kits, and the blackboard kit to complete a one room schoolhouse inside of this adorable school shaped tin.

I added the flag & pot belly stove.

While most of the children and teacher are outside during recess, Gerry & Dan are being punished inside having to write 100 times, "I will not talk in class."

New and improved!

Outdoor Chair Scene
A friend brought these chairs to our little club and challenged us to make scenes in them. The pictures didn't turn out real well but this is the best I could do because of the colors. Looks much better in person!

Grace's Christmas Tree
For several years, Grace hasn't had a real life Christmas tree as there is no more room for one because of all the minis. This year, Grace decided to make an eight inch tree that will now adorn her table every year! Guess all gifts will have to be mini!

M&M Scrubby Holder 2008
Grace hosts a small mini club in her home, Maryland Misfits (M&M).  This December, 2007, Barbara Morgan gave Grace an M&M Scrubby Holder. Here is the little scene Grace put inside. It's not very good because there's not much room in there! Everything looked small enough before I put it inside! Still... I love it. I made the Santa doll and the M&M's. Barbara also gave us the rug kit.
