A.G. Minis were part of the American Girl company. From what I have read, there were discontinued shortly after release due to small parts and children placing them in their mouths. They are beautiful examples of a more modern styled miniature, and come in a few various sets of " rooms". Each one fits into the cube style housing that lights up. They are hard to find, but eBay seems to be where you can find them these days. I just LOVE them!

Here is yet another cage or habitat to create with! I found these on Ebay, they are a part of the Re-ment collection. Re-ment is considered a play-scale miniature. basically what that means is this size is geared more towards the fashion doll scale rather then the standard one inch scale used in dollhouses. But I sure enjoy their detail and modern styling.

During Halloween I tried my hand at decorating items with skulls. mainly for the " day of the dead"which is like Halloween but with a much deeper meaning. The Day of the dead is celebrated in Mexico as well in the U.S. it's a time to remember all those loved ones no longer with us. We set up a shrine so to speak, and place pictures of family and loved ones to honor their memory. And of course there are celebrations and great food in the end. This has always included skulls... lot's of them. And here are a few day of the dead stuff made out of polymer clay...
