Miss Mamie Stepping Lively

miss_mamie

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!


Mr. Schueler the Accordion Player

It’s always fun when Mr. Schueler entertains the diners at the outdoor cafe! Thank goodness for the unseasonably mild weather!

I love an occasional rainy day in Oak Valley, with the wet pavers.

The Sandwich Board

I love finding little people and elements to make scenes more interesting.  Mr. Miller’s seasonal job.

Holiday Street Fair

The street fair has been fun, with residents coming in from around town. I love finding a place for unexpected characters, like Dr. Davis doctoring dolls and teddy bears.

Grandma and Buddy

I love Preiser’s detail and quality, but am always open new activities that I can introduce to Oak Valley. The first physically challenged citizens are made by Woodland Scenics, and are already in the town. Meet Grandma and Buddy.
