It's so hard to resist!

Isn't this camper the cutest thing? Many of you probably recognize it as the $25 kit from Greenleaf. Our local Miniaturists' Club Show and Sale is coming up  on September 16th and I'm sure they'll be selling it there. But I have to buy strategically at the show and sale!
I've decided to spend my money mostly on accessories, ones that are hard to find, like those tiny glass jars you use to make itsy bitsy jars of jam.
I think my miniature coke and seven up bottles would look great in front of this Camper.


  1. That would be a fun project. Your bottles would be perfect outside :)

  2. I'd love to do this someday. It would be fairly quick and my family did a lot of camping growing up.

  3. Another good thing to spend money on is supplies, that has always been where I seem to spend my money. I love coming home from a show with a ton of ideas of what I want to make and a few supplies like the jars you mention. That camper really looks like fun too.

  4. Yes, I'd love to buy some tacky wax and a mini drill, but this is my first show and sale. My mini club friends tell me you never know from year to year what will be there. I also want to have at least two scenes ready to sell at next years show and sale. I was planning on keeping that a secret, but I guess I'm not good at keeping I will be on the lookout for things for the two particular scenes I know for sure I am going to focus on making (I won't tell which!)
    Have you ever been to the Miniatures store Ross' Miniature Treasure House in North Van Jean? This is their website: but the website does not begin to show the amount of stock they have. I was in their briefly this past July and picked up a few items for my Nursery Scene. They sell the Camper kit there.

  5. I too look out for accessories for my projects at the mini fair in Sydney (the only one I have access to) each year. Or for supplies that I can't get over the internet for some reason (or that shipping costs make too expensive). But I do also love those items that you just fall in love with and can't resist! And it's great to see other people's work and come away with lots of inspiration. Sandie (Snippets from my Studio)

  6. It's worth taking a look on Etsy for miniature accessories, Sandie! The shipping costs are quite low. Often when you're ordering from a particular shop they will lower shiping if you buy more than one item from them. Happy shopping!
    Mini Hugs,
