I am adding a section to the Artist menu above, in the Home Made Section, I will share pictues and hopefully some tutorials produced by my readers --  Go Here to see these! (Coming Soon)


Living Free in America

is the name I go by at Etsy and at eBay.  These two places are where we're selling items to help pay for my dream to eventually travel America.  The first section below is a sampling of what is in the store on Etsy!  It lists everything from Sussan Russo Miniatures Brasses to  Vintage Art work and a lot more.  Below that window is a small sampling of what I have for offer on eBay - more items I'm offering for sale can be found in the For Sale section of this web site --

Zooplies Miniature Haven is where I share what I know about miniatures.  Use the tabs at the top of the page to navigate the site.  Visit often - Use the comments to ask questions - give advise. But most of all - Just have fun!  If you want something - just ask!

Living Free In America is another personal site where I am currently sharing my motor home restoration progress, as well as a place where I'll share my photos and vent on occasion. Once the motor home is fully restored, I plan to live and travel across America, sharing my adventures with my readers. This will be a working retirement - and I hope it works out as I'm tired of working so much, that I don't have time to enjoy life - and to me - that is wrong.  I still have hopes of doing this, but only time will tell, in the mean time, I'll do my best to keep adding to this site.

Jim Byrnes Model Machines

Are by far the best equipment you can buy, if precision and durability are important when building your miniatures.  I've owned a lot of equipment over the 30+ years I've played with miniatures and nothing I've found, compares to the equipment Jim makes. Make sure you visit the reviews in the Tool Box section above.
