I got some very wonderful Christmas presents this year. To start, my parents gave me this beautiful Bespaq Baby House. It's modeled after the old-school Dutch cabinet houses from way back when, which I love.
It even has wee staircases that come out:
It's a true work of art, and I love it. I'm going to fill it up one day with a tiny creation:
As a late gift to myself, I bought this Eames chair for the Heritage Room of the Beacon Hill. My parents had a matching set of these chairs that they got as a wedding present from Ma's mother, so it will make a perfect addition to the room:
I got this little chest for myself to put in the Wizard of Oz rooms of the Beacon Hill. I have doodads for the middle and will put all of the books in the sides:
My sister gave me a gift certificate for minis (AWESOME GIFT), so I took advantage of the after-Christmas sales with it. I got these displays for the Space Room of the Beacon Hill:
I plan on putting NASA goodies in here:
I've been wanting this cow and rooster cookie jar forEVER, and now I have it! I also got a typewriter:
The Golden Gate View is currently making its way across the United States to Farmsville, and this little beauty will be ready when it gets here:
I've also been eyeballing this witch/monkey snow globe for quite some time for the Wizard of Oz rooms. It even has real water in that ball:
This glass vase is GORGEOUS. So delicate and beautiful. It will be for the Golden Gate View:
I got some liquor and wine for the Beacon Hill Bar & Library:
I also got a bottle of Ammonia and a crow bar for the Crime Museum (I didn't take these out of the packages because Gretchen was hovering):
I also got this cute candy dish and a paper weight. These will go in the Golden Gate View:
This last one is confusing me. I bought it with the intention to put it in the B&L, but now it seems like it would be a good match for the Golden Gate View. We'll see:
My sister also gave me a RIDICULOUS chicken birdhouse that I LOVE, but I can't show you until Pa helps me nail it into the tree outside. It needs a proper unveiling.
Overall, my Christmas mini haul was very successful. Now I just need to get back to construction!
Happy New Year! Here's to hoping that 2014 isn't quite the clusterf*ck that 2013 was.
