Scrambled Eggs or a Turkey & Swiss Sandwich?

Hooray! My order of mini plates arrived from Thailand. I love them! And I had some dollhouse foods ready to plate up. 

First, I present to you a hot breakfast with scrambled eggs, toast and a half of an orange. The eggs are okay; I've been thinking of better ways to create them. Or maybe next time I'll just go for an omelet. 

If you're still hungry when lunch rolls around, have a fresh turkey submarine sandwich with swiss cheese, onions, lettuce and tomato. I've added some chips and dill pickle spears. Everything was made from polymer clay with the exception of the chips - they are dried bell pepper seeds.

Hope you have a fantastic weekend. Today I celebrate my 55th birthday but I'm still a kid at heart!  My husband and I will celebrate tonight at our favorite Indian restaurant (he turned 58 last Friday).
Toodles for now!

Special Commission Piece Arrived Safely At Its New Home

This is the special commission piece I did for a wonderful lady in SC.
Her dollhouse bathtub is slightly larger than 1" scale; I worked from a photo of her tub, her measurements and her color request.  Everything is clay with the exception of the posts holding the faucet pieces togethers. (They are made from common straight pins.)
I am pleased with the results though for a time I wondered if I would actually get it done. The faucets themselves were a challenge. But if we don't challenge ourselves once in a while, we'll never accomplish all we can.
