Tiny Town a funtastic place for UFO group members to live.

Tiny Town  is our safe haven when life gets crazy. We are all healthy and happy here, because we know our neighbours and friends living here are quilters too. To buy a small house in Tiny Town, you must perform one random act of kindness , and to buy a larger home ( 2 chimnies), you'll be performing 2 random acts of kindness. All houses have large sewing rooms, and have been built to last.Large homes have storage for more stash, but smaller homes have bigger yards.  Here you can have housemates from your past, alive or otherwise, your present spouce ( only if you wish,lol) as well as pets from past or present. I know you will be responsible pet owers and thoughtfull neighbours, because this is just that kind of place.  Only houses on the back are for sale.

Ask the mayor! But if everything else is perfect...don't gain weight, have all our former pets, no illness, etc...we should have perfect weather too, don't you think?

Is Tiny Town climate controlled?

Comment by Linda Koller on August 9, 2020 at 12:18pm

Great idea, Gail. Thank you hubby for volunteering! Can't believe I'll be well enough to walk 4 dogs...WOO HOO!!!! To have my furbabies with me again! 

Comment by Gail Brown on August 9, 2020 at 12:10pm

Maybe we can have some Doggie Stations like we have here at the apartments where I live that have poop bags and disposal containers.  My hubby says he would attend to those several times a day as needed.  Well, actually I told him he could and he agreed since this is all virtual and not reality as e says.  I do think because of all the work Riana is doing to keep this town up and running she should have the title of Mayor of Tiny Town as well as the Founder.  Maybe we can make it official at our first community tea party.

ROFLOL!!!! We will need an area for exercise with all the tea parties I'm going to have! LOL Hope there is a pool so I can do my water aerobics.

Comment by Mary Moore on August 9, 2020 at 11:48am

We need a vacant lot just off the quilt where all the animals will go to umm.... go. 

Paul wants one of the bigger houses to teach contra and square dancing.  We could also use it for yoga, exercise, large family gatherings, etc.

Dee, a sew-in at each other's houses! Love the idea! Will be happy to host a kennel quilt workshop at my house!! Or we can have quilt retreats! Gosh, with all us quilters, the Dry Goods store might have to enlarge their fabric department...LOL

Comment by Deanna Davis on August 9, 2020 at 10:15am

Riana ~ Can you please tell me what is available? I am sure I can ride my bike to anyone's house for tea, working on a quilt .. we can have a round robin sew-in at each other's houses !! 

Comment by Riana Noyes on August 8, 2020 at 10:10pm

Linda, you're right...unfortunately we don't have the" 15 min. to edit" on any of the ufo pages. I will be redoing list after a few more houses "sell"... Melanie wants one , but must rechoose, as she liked an already occupied house. And I'm waiting for Kris to name the house next door to mine. You'll need doggie bunk beds, Linda,lol.

Mary, the nice thing about living in Tiny Town is that we don't seem to have need for an " animal control" offcer, as all pets are well behaved, and owners are diligent pet lovers. My sweetie, Jumble, part collie gone these last 35 yr is at Stonehenge now. I picked her out as a puppy after a customer at work told me her Heinz 57 dog had pups, and they were looking for homes. Jumble T Bumble we named her, and she loved riding in the carrier of my bike until she got too big,lol. I also have Sheiba back, our huge tabby. She's reunited now with our other 2, Snowball and Jake.Snowball's very happy ( he always thought she was his mom...his own little fantasy, as his real mom was feral, and looked just like him). Jake just wants to play,lol.

All my dogs that crossed the Rainbow Bridge will be living with me, Mary...and Indy will be back home from his new home. So there will be Indy (Havanese), Shadow (Keeshond), Pansy (Beagle), and Blackie (Cocker)....quite a collection! They will be my kennel quilt inspectors as I continue to make kennel quilts for shelters. They will love any and all extra attention at the tea parties. There will be doggie tea biscuits for them.

Riana, you didn't add your cottage on the list.

I was sharing our Tiny Town with a friend and showed her my cottage. Her comments were we are having too much fun and have wonderful imaginations!!

I love to eat bakery! Does that count? LOL I hope we don't gain weight in Tiny Town!!!!!!! I love afternoon tea with whatever bakery is available. Everyone is invited to stop by at 3:00 pm for tea time. My grandmothers (who were best friends) always had tea time at 3:00. I even had a job once where the tea kettle was put on and tea was announced on the loud speaker!

Oh yum, apple crisp. Barbara, will you bake your yummy apple pie? I remember Woolworths well. In the town I grew up in we had a 5 and Dime...very similar to Woolworths. It too had a lunch counter that had a window to outside where you could get ice cream cones in the summer months.

Comment by Riana Noyes on August 8, 2020 at 4:29pm

The Tiny Town Market has decided to expand by adding a bakery section, and is looking for someone who loves to bake. Any takers for the 2 parttime jobs?

Comment by Riana Noyes on August 8, 2020 at 4:24pm

Melanie, l'm sorry...but house # 31 is already owned by Barbara, and named " Honeymoon cottage".May l interest you in house # 21 or #5?...same size and also similar in colour. The 2 acts of random kindness are for real life, and we are on the honour system...you can mention them or not as suits you. I hope the housewarming party will still be on after you chose an unoccupied house. :-)) 

I remember those Kresge's lunch counters...l loved having coffee and a tea buiscuit on my afternoon breaks from the shoestore l worked in.  25 cents for both with free refills of coffee and choice of butter or jam for buiscuit !

Comment by Barbara Hughes on August 8, 2020 at 4:07pm

Gail and Melanie, I worked at Woolworths when I was 16. I worked behind the food counter. It had a pretty good menu for a dime store. And yes I remember nickel candy bars. And penny candy. I remember that sweet rolls and donuts went on sale at the end of the day, if I'm not mistaken, $1.00 a dozen. I'm supposing our stores in Tiny Town will give a roll back on prices. I hope I hope!! Do we have a Thrift Store in town? 

Comment by Gail Brown on August 8, 2020 at 12:23pm

Melanie, I grew up with Woolworths and Kresge's.  When I talk about a "five and ten" my grandkids look at me like what is she talking about.  When i tell them that they just paid a dollar for a nickel candy bar they really know that I am nuts.   I hope it's like way back then in Tiny Town because it looks like it is.

Linda, I will be making my Apple Crisp.

Comment by Melanie Keith on August 8, 2020 at 10:27am

What a great idea!  How do we "buy" our house - report our acts or just do something kind - does the act have to be for someone in tiny town or just anyone?  I just love #31 and would name it Lilac Grange.  I'll have a housewarming party and invite the whole town - bring your favorite treat to share. I'll bake my Grandma's Bug Cookies - a soft, chewy vanilla cookie with puffed seeded Muscat raisins and walnuts.  Or maybe Alice Raymond's Raisin Cake - layers of velvety vanilla cake with a boiled raisin frosting.  Of course, hubby will be busy with the flower and vegetable gardens and walking two energetic dogs.  I'll have my faithful dog Cinder and cats (Tigger, Baggs, Nomad and Yogi) inside with me.  

Can't wait to visit the dry goods shop - kind of like the SS Kresge's where I grew up (before they were Kmart).

Comment by Riana Noyes on August 8, 2020 at 7:53am

Thanks, Linda...l'll bring some blueberry tarts :-)) Wilma, l love coffee and capachino,, so l'll see you often at Ms.Reddy.

My home is made from heavy  stone covered with stucco, and cobbledstone chimnies, anf the roof is slate. My home, named .Stonehenge,  will stand for ages. I've got clematis growing on one wall.
