No matter where my friend Susan of Susan's Mini Houses goes miniatures find her. She is just one of those people.
At Urban Ore in Berkeley, California she found squeezed into the very back corner of a junky old display cabinet a complete box of Black Flagg dolls. I had been there a million times, nuthin'!
I tuned my back on her for one minute in Paris on a deserted side street near Sacre Coeur and she had been invited into the studio of an expat from Arizona who did elaborate Southwest scenes! Honestly!

Well I think it was Jazzi's idea. The idea was to make a scene like one in a magazine. See her blog here
http://jazziminis.blogspot.com/ it was several posts ago.
So when I saw this CB2 add I thought of my sharp Minimodernista
couch. I don't know how to write on the picture like Jazzi and Dragon Dee do but I think it is really cool to make mock magazine covers.
UPDATE: challenge is from Mad for Mod. xoxo C

Dying Easter eggs in the Louis Rich Tudor house. "I want the pink" said Dot to her brother."Don't spill" said Mother hastily. Strombecker furniture. Vintage dolls, does anyone know what they are or who the manufacturer is, bendy???
Renwal plastic children's toys
"Did I remember the shredded coconut?" Alberta wondered in her kitchen... "I want a p-nut butter sandwich" said brother.
Speaking of the 1950's... I was reading a Dick and Jane book to my Little Assistant who is in Kindergarten, "Look, look, look. See Dick look", I read. And she said, "Nana, I like the pictures... but why do they talk so funny?".
