Amazing Things Arrive!!

A very much anticipated HO scale Mid Century Modern House arrives! Along with other things! Yippee!

This amazing HO scale Modern Bungalow I won thru ebay Germany! The seller was kind enough to let me bid and ship to me! I fell in love with its unique design and all the tiny little details inside of it!! I've never seen one quite like it!!?
What caught my eye!? Top, right above, a little Mid Century white lamp, in the living room or is it an library?
 Very true to the Mid Century Modern styling of the 1960's! Inside, you can see an office space at the top right in the photo above and below! Sadly, the desk came loose and its just behind the back chair! Whew!
 The room below with the white lamp has chairs missing. Sadly, those pieces are not located some where in the house or then again, they might be?!
 A close shot of the lamp below. There is a book shelf and long table inside...
 The bottom floor is the living space. You can see a TV, a table, a loose sofa and chair in this room.
  A closeup below, of the office. Now, if only I could get it open to fix all the loose pieces! So teeny tiny, its wonderful to buy a miniature house with all these gorgeous extras!!

Then, I also received my back order of the Rement "Little Twin Stars -Yumemiru Otome Room" set.
So many cute things you can use for Pure Neemo or Lil' Fairies!
 I will definitely be using this set in some scenes soon!

I also received this lovely case from Yahoo Japan! Amazing Masako Watanabe Margaret cardboard case!
 I used to own a very similar case as a little girl! But mine was of the manga "Rose of Versailles". It showcased Lady Oscar and Marie Antoinette. Still, it is amazing to find one that is from the 1960s and in really good condition...
 Because this case is made of a very thick cardboard, with some metal parts, like the push button lock on the front and all the rivets you see for the handles and case itself.
 Amazing! Even the edges of the front cover of the purse case has metal at the corners to keep the case from usual wear and tear.(Shown in the first photo of the case.) Below, gorgeous artwork by Masako W. on front of purse case.

Okay, time for a key lime coconut pattie break! From my Dollar Tree spree! Nom nom! Delish!

Okay, I was also able to get myself an iphone 5c in pink. I really wanted blue, none of course! But to get it cheaper, pre-owned is the only way and for it to be unlocked to use my carrier service! Thru ebay, I received it in the mail! Nice condition, and not as bad as a yellow one, I saw at Gamestop in WA! I'm a happy camper!
 I even got myself a 'Milky' case for it in red and white!! LOL

Lastly, I forgot to show this, cute McDonald's Happy Meal toy called, "Sweethearts" released for Valentine's. I got this the night I came back home from the airport. We stopped by at McD's and I got a kids meal, inside was this cute plushy! There are other designs...

  1. Everything is so cute! I have had my eye on that rement set and really wanted to see the full picture and sewing machine, so thanks for posting :).

    My grandpa has a whole room in his basement for HO scale stuff (trains, buildings, etc) and that house is amazing! I will have to start looking for some cool ones on Ebay :).

    1. HI Rebecca,

      Thank you dear! I found out about the rement only after it had already sold out. But Hobby Search was kind enough to tell me when they did a back order!! So awesome! I just had to get myself a set dear! I hope you get one too! Its definitely a keeper! many hugs, gg

    2. PS Yes, HO scale has so many cool Modern Houses! I fall in love every time I find one I haven't seen!!

  2. Love this post! You realise that the Sweethearts toy is based n a type of British confectionery?
