Breakfast food items, new listings on Ebay & Etsy stores

I have some new food items I just finished, which are listed on Ebay in my Ebay store 
Pumpkin Hill Studios & my Etsy store. Click on the Etsy box above on the picture of the item to take you there.
First up are the items on Ebay: 2 plates of pancakes, sausage, and eggs with butter, syrup and blueberries. One plate has fried eggs, the other scrambled. These are large plates 2 inches across. They were alot of fun to make, as my husband loves to eat a big breakfast, so this is just the kind of breakfast for your Hommes, GI Joes, Ken, or your action figures. 
Each plate took alot of time to create- $12.99 each and both have free shipping.

I have shown my foods here also with Barbie, Poppy Parker, GI Joe, as well as my Blythe doll Alice. I am really pleased with these two items as I achieved the realism I desired - I always try to improve with each new dish I create. 
Next up is the cake with slice cut out of it and it has 5 candles- just blown out!

This one is on Etsy for $15.99 free shipping in the USA only

It is GI Joe's 50th anniversary birthday this year, so this is a perfect cake for him! It has 5 candles on top (they do not light) and one slice cut out of it. 
I am working on more miniature food! Please shop my Etsy store links as well as my Ebay store links for these items!

More Food- 1:6 scale Hot Dogs and Fries

I did some backtracking today and played with the clay! It was fun, and my GI Joe collector's club Man of Asia arrived. Well, seems he isn't too fond of Sushi, so I took a break from the Japanese diorama and made him some real 'man' food- hot dogs and fries!

The hot dogs all measure about 1 inch long. I have two listings in my Ebay store- click HERE and go to Lisa's artisan items or Doll food . The plate of plain dogs is $9.99 with free shipping and the plates of hot dog with mustard, fries, and ridged sandwich pickle are $6.00 each- all my miniature foods come with free shipping if you are in the USA. I will also do commissions- Contact Me  with your ideas and I can give you a price. Plenty of examples of my commission work in my Flicker album if you are interested.

I have more pics of the Japanese diorama, and will be posting them here later. Happy Sunday!

Japanese room in 1:6 scale

I finished the back wall with the wall hangings and the niche today and set up the Re-ment Hina set. It looks great. I just need to finish the other side wall with another faux Shoji door, and this room will be complete in time for Hinamatsuri on March 3rd.

The table is made of scraps of wood. The four panels on the wall are copied from the internet and printed, then put onto scraps of foamcore with the edges painted gold. I think they were called the Four Seasons. Hinamatsuri set is made by Re-ment and is one of my most treasured miniature pieces..I have extras which I will scatter about the room. 
I currently have a Mini American Girl doll Ivy who I purchased online from Walmart for $15 to be the little girl in this scene, and a Man of Asia GI Joe will also be on the way soon, I hope. My Kyori and him will be a couple with Ivy as their little girl. Miss Happiness (Hanoko) is my Barbie Basics asian doll shown above, and my IT Summer will be Sachiko or Miss Flower- I have not yet dressed her in a kimono for this scene.
The unusual wooden dinner set with carp goldfish painted on it was a set purchased in Chinatown when I was a child in New York, when my father took us on a trip up there. I still remember that little shop in Chinatown, I was about thirteen at the time. I am hoping to use this room for the main room also when I create the Shogun Japanese restuarant later. So for the month of March and possibly April I will be immersing myself in Japanese culture for these dioramas, which I have enjoyed building and researching.
