Week 16: How To Start An Indoor Miniature Garden On A Budget

Have you caught the miniature garden bug yet?
I have!  I had it long before it became popular.  I have always been fasinated with miniature figurines.
Here is what I started with. I searched through my house and collected all of my miniature figurines that I had purchased over the years.
 It is a collection of all the things I enjoy doing in my life.
Birdhouse, butterfly, camping, flowers, nature, gardening, needlework, tea and a little tractor to keep the grass mowed.

Where To Start?
1.  Search your own collection room by room
2.  Ask friends and family if they have any miniatures they want to give away and do a swap
3.  Go to garage sales or thrift stores
4.  Ask in online forums and groups and do a swap
5.  Save up a $1 a week for your miniature collection

Most of these cute miniatures were under $5 each.  Some were gifted to me and some I bought at garage sales and thrift stores.
Others, I made myself from a kit.
