Military Village Minis

I may not have mentioned the fact that I'm a military spouse. There is a little tradition that we have as wives. A lot of times you're able to purchase these little buildings to set up the community of places you've been stationed.
There is a lady here in town that allows you to come in and make and customize your own buildings.
I spent the day yesterday, doing just that. So here are a few photos of the journey.

The building (blocks) are pre cut. This is how they look with the base paint

This is the mess I was making when I got in the Zone. LOL!
My friend was working on her set as well.
We bumped into an old acquaintance while there. She came in to work on a piece for her home.
Airborne proud!

These are the buildings after I've added my Doors, windows and tent openings...
The tags that I've painted white are going to be attached and used as labels for each building.


So here they are, sanded, stained and labeled

Here's a close up of the Village, this doesn't have to be the set up. This won't be my set up. this is only for Photo sake.
I love the BDU building.
I hate my writing  w/o lines!
Oh well...
Just guess who those represent, that's right...
My three pickles!

some of these have tent openings-ish to represent deployments

This was the perfect way to spend such an ugly grey day here in Tn. If you'd like to know how to contact Laura Mercier at Horse Feathers, let me know. She is by appt. only. Thank you so much for a great time and project, Laura.
