I have been drooling over a premade Victorian kitchen for months, but even with 40% off I could not bring myself to spend that kind of money. Instead, for under $25.00 I purchase 5 1970s House of Miniature kits and plan on building my own. Please wish me luck.

The seller was up front about the condition and a joy to work with. After unwrapping each treasure, I was amazed at how many items I was left with!
It is difficult to see, but the top case is FILLED with wonderful glass items; bottles, glasses, canisters, jars...oh my. These plastic bead cases are great for storing minis. (Some of the items shown are ones that I already had.)
With so much to work with, I could not help myself and started to put a few things in the kitchen shell. Even without wallpaper, windows or trim, an unwanted guest already came to stay!
I can't wait to start making "meat" pies for the bar in my little kitchen and creeping things up a bit.

While I am saving for the East Side Townhouse that will be home to my new project, The Judge and Gibbet, I plan on making enough food to fill the bar and the kitchen. As I mentioned before, I am very rusty, but hopefully with practice, I will get better. Following is the layout for the pub: Bottom floor, main bar and bar kitchen, second floor, more bar seating with fireplace, (including roasting pig on a spit). Also on the second floor, a room for the "seamstress". Hers will be double room, extending in the back of the structure so that she can have a salle de bain of her own. The third floor will hold private bar seating and a tattoo parlor. On top, the most important area, the home to the pub owner. This is where he sleeps in his coffin and "takes care of", unsavory customers before they can bring harm to the small town he has come to love. I am still in the planning stages, so if anyone has any ideas, please feel free to share them.

I am not terribly happy with the coconut, but intend on practicing a lot more!

spam musubi. I had some trouble getting everything tightened up, but it was a fun attempt. The tiny plate is sitting on an egg for size reference.
