My secret passion

I love puppet stages. I've made a few. I don't know why I have this fetish but I do know when it started. In high school I went to a movie with a friend. I don't remember the movie we intended to see, but after seeing the poster for Nicholas Nickleby we changed our minds and decided to see it instead. I had very mixed reactions to the movie itself, but what caught my attention was the very beginning title scene. It was a puppet stage. An all out puppet stage. It had everything. I was enthralled. Since then I've wanted to make one just like it. The closest I've gotten is the big one my father actually made for me for my birthday. (Yes I still get toys for my birthday). He only constructed it, it is still in his garage awaiting to be painted and completed. So now, this is my only stage I actually have with me. It stands maybe 4 1/2 inches tall. My dream is to make stages for my shop.

Very cute!! Have you seen the Olivia book series? there's a book from the series that my book making teacher showed us that opened up into a stage, it was pretty cool.
