Jelly Containers, Airbrushes, and Playmobil

This is a post about some fabulous finds of inspiration for me.
The first are these tin jelly containers I picked up during breakfast at Cracker Barrel Restaurant. You could leave them as is or paint them white with glossy spray paint to look ceramic.

The second item is an airbrush, which was a Christmas gift. I used to own one many years ago but I never though about using one to paint miniatures. DUH!!! You do need an air compressor and you can use thinned acrylic paints. 

The third is all about my new love-Playmobil! I wanted a "dollhouse like" building that was gender neutral and kid friendly for our smaller guests to play. I bought a school and playground set, which could be used in a miniature scene. 

I later found this ferris wheel, that I  love so much that I bought the swing and spaceship rides too. They all light up and I bought the electric motor so they could run without me having to turn the crank.


  1. Okay lady, did you buy the Playmobil sets for the kids or yourself? You're having way too much play with that Ferris wheel! I love your work, the details are truly amazing!

    1. LOL!!! That's what my husband asked me too! All I can say is I had them in mind when I saw them, now after I put them together??? Ok...they can play with them at the appropriate age of responsibility:)

  2. Hello Jocelyn,
    It looks wonderful. Great use of elements. Exactly what is wrong with buying the Ferris wheel for yourself?
    Big hug,
