I got back to my craft room and discovered I had left my water glass in the office and that I never posted a Stash post on Wednesday. The camera happened to be on my worktable so I snapped some pictures and came back for my water glass. :-)
These gorgeous foods were made by Barb Lewis. I could not resist the watermelon. It's her specialty but the picture does not do it justice!
A friend of mine who had never met FH walked right up to him at a show and informed him that he needed to give me $20 for celery.
He did. Without batting an eye he pulled out his wallet and handed me a $2o bill. I laughed... then I went and bought the celery. The picture doesn't show it well, but Barb made the veins. It's a fantastic piece.
Here's an aerial view that includes part of Barb's business card. I try to keep a piece of card or contact information with each item. If I use it in a scene I store the card in a folder with other things like preliminary sketches, wiring diagrams, etc.
The second portion of my Stash today is from another Barb, Barb H. from my St. Louis mini group. This Barb loves miniature food. Loves it! I have no clue how much of it she's got stashed away. Not only does she love buying it, she loves giving it too. This piece was a birthday gift a year or so ago.
I think this platter is too cool! I love the onion rings! The plating is perfect, right down to the garnish of celery and ranch to go with the spicy hot chicken wings.
Here's the best gift though.
Barb found the cookie jars as a Christmas ornament and made the cookies to go with.
Aren't they adorable? I love them to pieces! I'm either going to use them in a Christmas setting in the near future or use them as seasonal decoration in my "big dollhouse" when I get it finished. I haven't quite decided. Of course the Christmas setting in question hasn't even been started and the big dollhouse hasn't been worked on in ages. I really need to do that. Maybe once the Greenleaf is finished...
