The Miniature Garden Archives

When I was forced to renovate this blog in the winter of 2021/22, I had about 578 blogs to wade through from 2006. Ugh. I think I would have preferred cleaning my entire house from top to bottom. Lol!

Some of the blogs were deleted immediately, they were either outdated, or I was complaining about the industry not recognize this hobby, (which they still don’t, mind you, they called it a trend that is now over.)

Some of the blogs have been shelved, to either update later or were seasonal so I could buy myself some time… it was quite tedious going through so many blogs!

And most of the blogs were updated and made through to this brand new website that you’re enjoying right now.

But the posts that I couldn’t delete, shelve or categorize, are here in the archives. They are either a bit of creative writing that I didn’t want to bury, or an event or milestone that were meaningful in some way.
