Horse Theme Cont'd....Ridin' in the Loft

Just because Daddy bought a big loft and your bedroom is huge, does not mean you need to ride a horse in it for goodness sake! But, then again, you might as well if nothing else than to impress the heck out of your girl.

He's got everything a guy could want...a TV, cool posters

a gorilla,

tools, a traffic cone,

pudding for afters,

a cozy bed with fake fur,

a beanbag chair, and, well, stuff.

Later, his friend watches TV and he's left with the can of pudding.
Bare bulb industrial lighting...that's cool.

I bought the Walking Dead Carl Grimes action figure as it was finally on sale. He is really detailed as I have found out the McFarlane action figures are. Also, I think he looks pretty normal...not all the Walking Dead figures do. I like action figures as they usually look better than dolls, but sometimes action figures have strange clothes or they are zombies like some of the Walking Dead ones. I did realize when I got home that the scale is smaller than 1:12 so I had to use a lot of my smaller things...lots of Playmobil from my son's childhood. The beanbag is his hacky sack which he put with my miniature things awhile ago. I found the Deadman comic poster in a Taschen catalog and could not resist the irony of that in the bedroom of a guy from the Walking Dead TV show.

Pre-teens and Horses

I decided to use an item I had not used before in a scene. It's the desk. Also, two of my work colleagues have a daughter who is into horses and my sister-in-law is an accomplished horsewoman. So here's to them.

Granma sent the letter writing poster...blatant hint.

I guess dogs are cool, too.

And koalas.

Mmmm...comfy bed.

I had not used the desk as it is probably not my favorite, but it's fun to use something you don't particularly like to see what you can make of it.

My New Workplace

Okay, I have not posted in ages, thought I'd lost the mini-moxie. I quit a job, had to look for a new one; minis fell by the wayside. Got to talking about it with my husband and son and we are. And, as you can see by the time posted, I couldn't sleep.

I have a wonderful new job and had the idea to well...sort of recreate my setting. Of course, I don't have the right colors of anything, but you will get the jist of it.

I work for a biopharmaceutical company so there are my glasses to wear in the lab (not a scientist...just walking through). I have a monitor connected to my laptop...big spreadsheet to work on. There is my lunchbox always under the desk.
