Tiny Tea Party on the ceiling

I've always had a small fascination with doll house furniture and various other bits necessary to make a house. How do they make food so tiny? Can you actually open up and read the books? Where's their closet overflowing with plastic skeletons (that would be the model of my house)?

 About the only part I never cared about were the dolls and the house part. (I'm complicated like that).

Putting together my husbands new found clay making skills along with my "I'll paint anything at lest once" we threw our hat into the making tiny fake food ring.

We've made breakfast:
Chicken and a meatball sub
Some tasty desserts in the form of cherry pie, cherry crumble and strawberry shortcake.
A classic hamburger, hotdog and french fry lunch
Spaghetti and meatballs and lasagna for some italian fair
A cupcake, cup of coffee and muffin for the lighter lunches.
Pepperoni pizza
A steak dinner complete with green beans and baked potato
Finally a Taco Salad.
They're all around the size of a pinkie nail to about a quarter for the pizza. And if I am ever smart I'd take picture before I paint them but I am horrible at before pics.

We have a plan that has nothing to do with dollhouses but well we got distracted by shiny riffs and haven't moved much past the making the food step of our three part plan.

I will say one thing, it is incredibly depressing to have cupcakes dancing through your head as you paint one only to realize that you don't have anything in your house.

I love the steak dinner- and of course the breakfast meal!
