Taking a Gamble

I haven't been working  on the actual bar in the Judge & Gibbet because I am having so much fun in the morgue/workroom.   The walls are bare and things thrown in there willy-nilly.  But I did want to share with you a great find.  

While looking at miniatures on eBay, I found a small bone box marked "Mexico".  It cost almost nothing and the description said it was filled with small dominoes.  I had no idea what scale they were, but took a gamble due to the super low cost.

When my package arrived, I think I screamed out loud when I emptied the contents of the small souvenir box. Inside were the most perfect 1/12 scale dominoes I have ever seen. We set up a game on one of my favorite used tables.  (Note the mismatched chairs as well.)  I could not be more pleased with the final outcome.  Maybe some day, I will get to work on this room!  The size of this new house is simply daunting.


  1. Hello Gayle,
    I am happy the gamble paid off. they look fantastic and perfectly to scale.
    Big hug,

  2. Ooooh they are gorgeous. What a lucky find. I do love eBay for all the wonderful things you can see and buy.

    Your scene is great, as they always are.
