For the last 2 days I've been sorting through my miniatures that I've collected over the years from thrift stores. I shamefully admit that I've been a mini hoarder, just throwing everything into shoe boxes, not really paying attention to what I've bought. Minis thrown on top of minis. It's been a nightmare looking for things that I've needed along the way. And finally I had enough, I rolled up my sleeves and with little plastic baggies in hand I began the great mini sort. I should have taken a before and after photo but at the time I wasn't thinking about blogging the end result and I wondered if I'd ever see the end! But after 3 hours I had this box done. And now 2 days later I have 5 of these sorted boxes. The 4 others are mostly furniture. I stuck to it, yay me!

And the mini Gods rewarded me for changing my hoarding ways! I found teeny, tiny people amongst the rubble! They were inside a tiny
bag ,inside another bigger bag of odds and ends.
They are SO tiny I gave them my walnut house to hang out in. But they had troubles getting in. The front door was locked!
But it wasn't long before 2 of them cracked open the walnut with just a couple of tiny pushes.
A helping hand for a fellow tiny human..
Once inside they opened up the window and the front door to let the fresh air in. One of them found a comfy chair to sit in. They made themselves right at home!
Wow! I never, ever thought I'd look inside that tiny window one day and actually see a person looking back out at me!
And there's more hoarding finds I want to show you but for now I'm going to call it a night. I'm tired after this big mini sort. Thanks for stopping by, see you soon :)
Update: After a night's rest I posted what else was in that bag right here
