Goodness! It's been almost exactly a year since my last post. The posting and playing have really suffered at the hands of my difficult working schedule (did I mention that I commute 25 hours a week?), but today I ventured out into the heat to reacquaint myself with the
Toy Soldiers Forever! studio out in my backyard.
Despite the heat, the pansies are holding up pretty well.
The studio is for storage of odds and ends and some photography; most of the serious stuff happens in the set-up I have in my basement. Still the little building is a very charming place to visit from time to time.
Some of the photography for this blog occurs at this counter, most notably the Fort Revenge saga - which can be revisited here.
This little industrial building started out as a BMC Meade's headquarters and was featured in this post.
One shelf contains some of my vintage McLoughin paper Franco-Prussian soldiers.
These are some of the free downloadable soldiers from Walkerloo. You can view the assembly adventure here.
The Third Michigan project now resides in a cabinet downstairs but his hand-painted placard remains behind in the studio. The "Old Third" can be seen here.
The view out the door brings a splash of colorful zinnias.
I keep promising myself to get back into the toy soldier groove. Maybe this Autumn.
