There's a fun "pop!" to this scene, in anticipation of the new year and the many corks that will be popping all over the world.

I love yellow, and this cute new Pop! mini figure from Kid Robot really helped to inspire the rest of the furnishings. Certainly reminds me of Jeff Koons' Balloon Dog.

My ever-resourceful daughter found the Pac-Man game, which is actually a candy dispenser! It works great in this scale. And it holds some serious nostalgia for me...Pac-Man was definitely my game of choice as a tween, and I spent many hours after school playing it in one of the food joints near my house. I got pretty good, too!

Happy 2013, all! 

Many good wishes for the new year, and I look forward to another year of blogging and celebrating modern minis with you!
