So, I totally stole the title of this post from an inspirational piece of seating. Back in July, I posted a photo on the Call of the Small Facebook page
of a phenomenal ergonomic and eco-conscious rocker, then on sale at Fab

Known as the Pant Rocker
, it was crafted by Shiner International
, and I loved the lines and warmth of the wood...this chair definitely stayed on my mind. Enter the amazing Pepper of MitchyMoo Miniatures
and poof! Magic! I now have my very own Pant rocker, in 1:12!!
Isn't it a wonder?? I'm sure it caused her much pain and agony. I imagine it was a pesky build. Don't worry, I have thanked Miss Pepper with a swap box full of many things...she is still awaiting her package, but I hope she likes everything!
The lovely laser cut lantern in this scene is also courtesy of Pepper.
She wired it with a mini LED and I managed to blow it on the first try with the battery. Typical of me to screw up the loveliness! Sorry again, Pepper! I also received incredible kitchen pieces and a brutalist wall sculpture, but I need to do a proper setup for those, which I will do as soon as I can.
I've been a very lucky duck as of late, because not only did I receive Pepper's goods, but two surprise packages, one from Lene of Modern Minis by Dragondee
and the other from Cyd of My Mini Mod Pod
Lene, who specializes in 1:6, offered me some lovely pieces she created in 1:12 for the defunct I'm A Giant Challenge, which was launched by Emily Henderson
almost a year ago and sadly fizzled without a word (Megan did a phenomenal roundup of all the folks who actually did complete the challenge
). So, the cool desk and storage unit, along with some lovely accessories, came from Lene and went right into this scene in the Villa Sibi.
Wouldn't you like an office setup like this?? I also added a vintage German low credenza and put the cushions from my Reac Barcelona chair as a topper. Looks less bare!
Cyd was very sweet and sent a hip and cool credenza as a generous thank you after I provided measurements from my Artply Highland
(Cyd got a kit with missing pieces). She did a great job on it, don't you think???
I wish I could have highlighted every bit and piece I received from all three here in this scene, but rest assured they will make appearances in the future! THANK YOU
to all, and you each amaze me with your talent and artistry!
