Very Busy Day

So today was really busy! Up showered, cleaned kitchen and bathroom, washed floors, and made a batch of turkey soup for dinner. The best part however, is me finishing my miniature scrolls!
Ever since I and my dh binge watch Game of Thrones I am obsessed with, I know kinda dumb, but that's me!
I will be posting them on Etsy tonight I hope you like them! Hope everyone had a great and productive mini daY!

Preview: the witch's broom

So I am so excited to be posting this little number! It was quite a challenge to have a self standing broom, and at one point I had to walk away and had  too take some time off from it but I did it!!!! And I absolutely love saying that!
I would also like to thank my new followers ..I hope you enjoy your visits here.
Tonight I will be posting this little upscale witch's broom in my Etsy store along with a few other little things I have been working on. I really was looking for something different than just the plain miniature brooms we see so many of. If you have a minute please let me know what you think.

Back from Kansas??????

First I would like to say is thank you to my new followers, I hope everyone is having a wonderful summer!
  Yes you heard me right back from Kansas, took a very long train ride to visit my son and 3 grandchildren, David, Madison and Stirling (twin 10 year old identical twins). David is 8 and of course the apple of grandmas eye! while I was there the girls only got grandma confused once..with the "I'm not Madison I'm Stirling" thing and we did find out David was accepted in the gifted program in his school! Grandma and Dad were so proud! Now though I am a little insecure about it...hope he does well...because it would bother him terrible!
  My son really did out do himself this year,,,we were really on the go, movies to see the new 3D monster inc. movie, Science City, a water park, chunky much fun to do all that with them..but all good things come to an last week I boarded my train for the very long ride home.
  Now though I find I am really having a hard time getting back into my routine. I did reopen my Etsy store, and I hope writing this will help ease me back into things.
  The really good news though, is when I was away I took too my old love of crocheting...of all things...I started crocheting baby things...made like 3 blankets, little hats, I am really giving thought to opening a second Etsy store with Crochet baby items.
  Well we will see...maybe if I post some pics here some of you could give me your thoughts on what you think on my things...?
  Do have to run...have a blessed and great day!

But....when I went to their forums this am I found another 2013 contest! has one! So as I looked at the little starter you begin with my mind almost came undone thinking of ALL the wonderful possibilities!

Meanwhile here is what I did this weekend! Hope you enjoy!

Simple but Sweet

This little tray and pitcher was such a joy to make, simple but sweet! These trays I purchased on Ebay a while ago, I bought a "lot" of them unfinished. Seeing these pitchers on line in all sorts of colors and finishes, I searched and searched for "where to buy miniature dollhouse water pitchers" to no avail. So then I came upon how to make dollhouse miniature flower containers and bingo! I found them! I make them with card stock, then either  paint or paper them my chosen color! I think they just are so pretty with the trays! So the pattern comes in three different scales! Very easy...hope you enjoy!

This Week

What a week, sitting in front of the news for the whole week, wanting to work on minis...but just having to watch. Staying up all night on Thursday..just to see.Feeling everything from anger to sadness, trying to believe the unbelievable. From Boston to Texas...this is America. An America that has endured so much this past week.

I heard one of Krystle Campbell's family members say he was glad suspect 2 was captured.."but it won't bring her back". Now as a step mom of a son killed in Afghanistan, I feel I can relate. It doesn't matter, not who did the bombing, not how, not just doesn't. What matters is that your loved one is gone. No one, now where, no how, can bring that person back.

So America will move on...we will be forever keep this week tucked away in out collective we do 9/11. We will forever remember the firefighters that died in Texas, the police in Boston...all of them..all the heroes.The families left behind will go on, never the same, ever wondering what would be, if this didn't happen....the rest of us we will pray for them, always keeping them close to our hearts.

America..will be fuzzed together again for the week of tragedy..forever...

This little bakers rack was awesome to make. I was feeling in the country mood. Kinda wanted to take a break from the country chic look and wanted something a little more traditional country. I just love the red gingham fabric I found in Jo Ann fabrics! Love that store!

So I made this little sweet board this week, and it took me forever to make the little sign! Now I know there are a lot of techies out there that would be laughing at me now....but this took alot of time and remakes, to figure out how to do it. I use the program snagit to edit my pictures and that's where I made it. Hope you enjoy looking :)

I am just so happy today, finally in the Northeast the sun is out and my windows are open!!!! After such a long winter this is a good anted to thing!
So today I wanted to share this little pantry that I sold on Etsy. It is one of my favorite pieces I've made. I sold it to a sweet, sweet person from Tx.
 Growing up, I had a wonderful aunt...she had a pantry like this, and it was the highlight of my day to run next door to my Aunt's house and open the pantry doors to see what was hidden. Now that I am all grown and I have to watch the waistline and try to eat's hard to believe all those goodies were not good for me. Ahh that's ok though..the memories beat the bad effects of the sweet goodies!!!

 The little cookbook has actual printing and pictures on the pages..I fell so in love with it!!

Hello everyone as  always I am thinking of warmer days! Hope everyone had a good winter, and depending on where you live maybe enjoying some spring time weather! This little counter was such a joy to make. Sometime, I feel like making minis takes such a toll on my patience but then most of the time I love the way you have to "keep calm and carry on!" I just have to tell myself to concentrate and just go slowly :) In doing that I find my mind stays clear of everything...all troubles and worry just disappear ...gone! Them when something  is finish there is a great feeling of accomplishment! So I hope yo u enjoy this little bakery was a true joy and  labor of love!!

Tuesday, January 29, 2013 was a day for wanting summer to be here. Thinking about the pool the garden, going to Kansas to visit my son and grand babies :). Sooo I have created this little summer set. Thinking of farmers markets, and fairs..this is what I came up with. The Lemonade was a little hard, I used liquid nails colored with food coloring, then I put pieces of lemons in there, then i blew bubbles in with a baby medicine suringe!

So after a very long winter so far, I am finally back to work on my minis. It all started back around Dec. Dec. 12 my dear husband was in the hospital having surgery. Open heart surgery no less. Now I know they do by pass surgery everyday..but NOT on my husband they don't. So to say the least..we didn't have much of a holiday this year....but at least he is still here with us. He was VERY sick and even the Doctors said if he didn't go in when he did..he may not be here today. So I'm very grateful for the gift I did get :) He is still very sore still, but doing well at this point. My sister in laws were a blessing...everyone was very good to us during this trying I would like to thank everyone. You know even when your only the leaves you feeling very vulnerable. So I have been fighting alot of different feelings lately, but tonight I put together this little Valentine Cookie Set which brought back some normalised emotion..hope you enjoy!
