How come I wasn't forewarned?! Oh my, this is totally addictive! Nope, I'm not talking about blogging, iphones, knitting, or jogging either. Hmm, although, jogging would be better for my health :) but this is the best thing for my spirit! So I'm good with it.... no wait , I'm great with it!! I love it, can you tell? :) Making miniatures is honestly so much fun. I had played with it all years ago and always collected miniatures too. But after 15 years of Designing big girl homes, I am so ready for this fascinating change! Ok enough about me, this is about YOU! Thank you for encouraging me to keep creative! I love you all! and yes, we have a winner to announce too! But first a few mini's I made this week :) .... everything below is handmade by me except the china tea pot and plate.
I loved doing this french bread board ( below ) and all the breads too!
I spent some time cleaning up the house too, oops I mean dollhouse :).....and below is the "before"...I took out all my cleaning stuff out and went to it! Ripping out wallpaper, painting furniture and distressing it, packing up shelves, scrubbing walls, and after all that, I even had time to bake 10 loaves of bread, and make 3 pieces of french pottery!! WOW. I'm so productive in this little world! I'm kinda liking that I can do so much to a house in one day :)
And even though I am no where near finished with the kitchen, here's what I was able to put back before I collapsed from exhaustion :) note: this is the same hutch as above, just some paint and a little wax and some distressing and it was done.
I'm loving this little world !!!
In the next few weeks I'll be opening an Etsy for all my designs and I hope you'll stop in now and then!! Thank you every one for all your wonderful friendship and Thank you to anyone new here too! I am so happy to meet you! Welcome to my home away from home :)
And yes, one more very important thing :) The winner of my give-away is.........Susan at Ash tree Cottage !.......Congratulations Susan!! Please email me your address so I can get your Royal Albert tea cup and saucer out to you :) I wish I could have sent you all one, Thank you so much for being a follower and for such sweet and encouraging comments too!
Wishing you all a beautiful fall week ahead! I'm off to make more minis :)
Much Love, Cynthia xo
