Dad’s latest miniature!

Yes, my dad does miniatures! He’s done several over the past year or two. Click here for my previous post if you’d like to see them.

It is quite amazing that at 82 years young he has the dexterity and patience to create these fasinating pieces of art.

I hope you enjoy the photos of this tiny “doll house”. Good news, he’s working on a new one!

Aging can be fun if you lay back and enjoy it.

And I’m a really happy person, I enjoy life. I think you see that on people. I think there’s nothing more aging than misery.

    1. Thank you, Jeff! They are little kits, but oh my goodness, I would not have the patience! And he has good eyes, because you have to assemble every single tiny piece!

        You’re welcome, Lisa! I do not have the patience at all, plus you have to be super talented to assemble all of it. Amazing!

    1. Thank you! (Ok, he thanks you 😊) Right now they are just sitting on his mantel. Eventually I’m guessing he’ll give them away. I have the beach house he did as his first one!

    Also / the Pfeiffer quote is so true about how misery can age
