FYI, anyone who's curious, my scene is a miniature. The cup and saucer are most of what remains of an old (really old :mrgreen: ) toy tea set. Then a small souvenir spoon. Metal dish is two pieces stacked, a tart pan on a tiny upside-down container. The "food" is cubes of raw potato with decorative sugar crystals on top, which dissolved and left color. The roses are real but small. Napkin and tablecloth are fabric/lace scraps. For "tea," ginger ale happened to be handy.

You fooled me. Great setup.

Thank you. Actually, I wanted the scene to look miniature. I don't know where it went wrong.

Well done, OhLook, Trumper and Mark!

I knew my heavy crop of the long-distance shot of the jetboard guy didn't stand a chance but couldn't resist since it just happened to fit the title. The operator's support boat (not in the photo) had "YOU CAN FLY for just $89.95" in big letters on the side!

Congratulations. M_Six, Trumper, OhLook
A wonderful place for fairies, a colorful Ka and a really nice miniature. I only realized the size of the scene after reading the description.

Thank you for hosting, Maureen and thanks for a nice theme and the comment.

Yes my Hook is my grandson, six years ago.
teekay's post and title song reminded me of that picture, deeply buried in my archives although displayed in an old web gallery (external link).
It was in new year eve 2009, when his uncle Rafa portrayed the Snow White's Wicked Witch (external link) (sort of). He smiled to the uncle's voice, but it took several minutes before my Hook was able to open his eyes :)

Teekay, I went back & forth between your photo & OhLook's so it was a contender regardless of the cropping.

Thanks, Trumper. I wouldn't say brilliant, but it does take a surprising long time to set up a scene like that. Having odd stuff around the house helps.

Your snake is pretty. 16 years? I didn't know they lived that long!

I think they can live about 20 years in captivity.They have no predators,diseases, starvation issues in captivity so it is probably artificially higher and to be honest they don't move alot LOL :)
