Last Minute Christmas Shopping


Busy corner filled with last minute shoppers on Christmas Eve.  Merry Christmas, Everyone!

Miss Mamie Stepping Lively


Miss Mamie is one of the group of physically challenged Woodland Scenics figures. Mamie was an ugly white lady with a knee length plaid skirt and sweater. I thought she needed a little more dignity, with a nice blue jacket and black skirt. I’m still struggling with the best method to lengthen a skirt. Currently, I am using multiple coats of Elmer’s Glue. It can’t be anything with texture, because texture in this scale would not be visible to the naked eye. If anyone has a better idea, let me know!
