This weekend's weather in Baltimore, Maryland can only be described as summerlike!  The heat, and the energy of the world makes me want to get in shape and enjoy the world.  This inspired me to show off my two Hot Toys' action figures in a yoga garden.  These guys have super posability and yoga is the perfect way to show that off.  Visit my Flickr photostream for more pictures.  Enjoy.

Easter Parade

I call this entry "Easter Parade" for no other reason than I like the way it sounds.  How unfortunate it's the title of a Judy Garland, Fred Astaire movie, nothing against the movie, I just hate being associated with JG.  Enjoy!

Isha attends Good Friday services

Momoko at the Easter Sunrise services

The Fashion Royalty ladies in 80s Barbie or Heart Family dresses.

Kayla and Kelley in their Easter dresses.

Misaki and Francisco taking a smoke break.  Go to Flickr to see Francisco in his bunny costume!

In case you were interested:  
The stained glass window is from a calendar of stained glass windows.
The stone wall in the garden pictures was part of Mattel's "International High School" from their "Generation Girl" line.
The lawn for the photo shoot was made from an IKEA door mat called "Trampa."  It was spray painted with 2 different shades of green and one shade of yellow.
The flowers all came from the craft or dollar store.
The bunny birdbath was something I had squirrelled away many moons ago.
Francisco's bunny costume is a dollar store rabbit, unstuffed.

One of my good friends from college sent me a bunch of her findings for miniatures.  Turns out she has a collection that she can't enjoy just yet and thought I could use some of it.  I put together this store store using some of the awesome beads she sent me.  Click here for my FlickR photostream for more details.  Enjoy.

P.S.  thanks AMR
