Trish: Hi, Teresa. WE have your Fall garden needs, lots of pumpkins, squash and produce here, more brought in everyday. And, we also brought some of our spooky decor from our farm out in Kane County.

Teresa: How has this been received here in the neighborhood?

Trish: Oh, we've been busy everyday. With people walking more, the produce corner has been strong all summer. It's winding down,  but we will continue to bring in hardy produce for sale.

The greenhouse still has plants and fresh flowers. And we will keep flowers until Thanksgiving.

Teresa: The eyeballs are great lawn decor, so much fun.

    1. Aw, thanks. We have such programs on Channel 7 here in Chicago. Which is by the way a great city, very diverse and in some neighborhoods it all works. I'm so pleased you are enjoying it! We have the Art Institute here with a fabulous fashion design/merchandising program. Their student shows are always amazing, which we catch on TV.

    2. We had such a program too, on a local channel here in Antwerp in Belgium, where I live. I loved watching it. I live in a very diverse city too, like yours, but mine is much smaller. :) The diversity is what's the best of living in a city I think.

  2. Wow, Sandi, I'm so impressed with all the details in the garden center. I could stand there for hours looking at every little embellishment. Cute storyline too!

    1. Hi, Marie, thanks...the Grand loved it as her Dad won't take her to a pumpkin farm this year, so she picked out things for her own dolls. Working with minis is really fun, and takes less room, lol. hugs, Sandi

  3. Again, your attention to details is most impressive. I too, have always loved miniatures. (I still think about that miniature silver tea service I saw in an antique store that I couldn't afford.) I've never had a dollhouse because I don't have space. Speaking of which....where is all of this set up? Do you have a doll room, or the basement? Now, this is just your Halloween decorations. I anxiously await your Christmas set up!!! How and where do you store all of these tiny objects? Or maybe I've just given you an idea for a future post!! :-D

    1. Hi, April...Thanks so much for your encouragement. I do have a pretty good sized craft room, that shares my stashes for my Etsy shop and all the doll/hobby stuff. I do sew on the kitchen table which is why I'm not sewing all the time. I have a couple of posts below that show the craft/doll room as it started. Like all work spaces it morphs depending on what I'm doing. I do intend to start selling, and this winter I will be working on vintage pieces and reworking items I have found at thrift stores. The dioramas, many are portable, and can be taken down. My goal this week is to move forward on the Colette story and then take down the Hotel, it needs to be rewired as the battery lights are just too costly, so I'm going to 'hard' wire it, I hope with strip lighting. You will see what is set up permanently and also some of the temporary setups. I try to be organized, and that is still an on-going QUEST, lol. I shop post-seasons, and put things away in seasonal boxes. I always have a tote of finds, that needs to be sorted, though.

      The last one, might work for things you might want to do, as mostly its, foam board that can be hinged with tape and folded up. I recommend thick foam board for floors, you can cover each side differently. I do use a lot of dull silver poster board for floors, it reflects a bit of light for photos, and looks like concrete, or gray floor. As you know with your camera eye, it doesn't take too many props to make a photo. Any of my DIY Diorama posts, I show how I do things, so you can just search on those. I'm going to do Christmas pretty big, I hope this year, as well, I will have nothing else to do...LOL, as I think we will be in full-shut down again as the pandemic ticks up! Sigh!

    3. Anytime you want to get lost, just search DIY in my posts and lots will come up, and Thank you---I've been working on this blog, and it is a real TREAT for me to get any feedback. And, yes, I think we would be in deep trouble if we were neighbors. Thanks, Sandi
