Wacky Packages Minis - Unboxing

 I came across these by accident searching for another brand of Miniatures and I had to check them out. When I was a kid Wacky Packages were a favourite bubblegum card fad. I was already into hockey cards and Mad magazines so these were right up my alley. Fun Fact.  I have a scar on my knee from Wacky Packages from when I was about 7 or 8 years old. I had kneeled on the floor to stick up a wacky sticker on my bedroom floor and my knee landed on a piece of glass. I have vivid memories of my grandfather holding me upside down so my Dad could remove the glass easier? lol  I have long forgotten what the sticker was  These ones came in individual little blind bags. I didn't notice you could buy different revealed sets but the blind bags are much more fun. I'm loving all these other brands of minis too. Do you have a favourite? Mini Brands from Zuru are the ones Ive been collecting for a few years now.  They are 1:6 approx. They have both toys and brands but I think  I like the toy

Vintage Kodachrome Slides - Dogs

Photographers have been drawn to animal subjects since the invention of cameras with dogs being number one in my opinion. Searching through estate lots of amateur slides, I find just as many dog photos as I do ones of babies. These photos are all from the 1960s. Photographers unknown.

Cigar Box Bed Miniature 1:12 scale

I was cleaning the garage last week and came across an old cigar box that had fallen behind a shelf. Perfect size for a dollhouse bookshelf but then I remembered I really needed beds for my newest house.  If you are a miniaturist you probably look at every piece of household scrap as a potential mini.  This box is 7 inches in length ( makes a 7 foot bed) and wood.  I believe cigar boxes are made from a type of cedar?  Its very thin and cuts easily but it is strong.  I used to have a full box of cigar boxes that I picked up from a smoke shop. I've used them over the years for all sorts of projects. They are great for storing small items and stack very well. Visit your local cigar/smoke shop if you can find one and I'm sure they would gladly give you a few boxes to play with.    I gave it a good scrubbing and removed the paper labels. I glued the flat pieces together (The top and bottom of the box).  The inside of the lid holds the mattress and the inside of the box is the unders
