There seems to be a run of giveaways going on at the moment. Some great bloggers are offering up some pretty amazing things so be sure to stop by their blogs and leave comments.
A Miniature Life. She is celebrating her birthday with a giveaway of a great and very realistic looking apple pie prep board. To enter you need to be a follower and leave a comment on her birthday post. Easy peasy.
Obsidian Hall. She is having an Autumn giveaway of some really beautiful mini things. There is a wonderful knit sweater, some yarn, some birdhouses and lots more. Her picture makes me think of crackling fires, tea and a good book. The rules are also easy. You need to be a follower and leave a comment.
Miniatyrmama is celebrating all of her followers, she is over 400 now! She has put together a great set of miniatures as a prize. I love her rustic signs and the bird pillows are so pretty. Be sure to check out her blog, follow it and leave a comment if you want to be included. Check out the pictures of her newest project while you are there. She has made some really cute things for a miniature modern shop.
Carolyn's Little Kitchen is also having a contest to celebrate her followers. She is offering up a sweet prize of some really adorable plates she has made as well as a table and some books, a chocolate pot and a cake stand. I really like her girly, shabby chic style. I would totally have that table and accessories in my house for real!
Miniature Dreams will be picking a lucky winner soon for a surprise miniature gift as well. Her draw to thank all of her followers will be held September 7th so head over to her blog and leave her a comment. The winner will get a gift in either princess shabby, green garden, or a french antique theme. Hmm... hard to choose.
Chances are I am missing someone's giveaway so if I am, please let me know! Good luck everyone,

Since I have been getting lots of good stuff out of my garden lately I have been on something of a baking kick. That got me thinking of bake ware and serving ware and dishes and Corelle. You know those super resilient dishes, well it turns out they have a bunch of other great things like tea kettles!
I'm loving this one!
and pretty bake ware!

Hello all, I just wanted to share a few photos of some mini projects I've been doing.
I tried my hand at some faux shabby signs.
I think this one turned out the best. I am still getting used to this aging technique.
Some things for the kitchen
A couple of velvet and floral pillows
This beautiful set I didn't make. This was a gift from JemJoop who has a shop in Etsy. I bought a couple of things for the dollhouse from her and she sent me this! It is beautiful painted pottery.
Have a great night everyone.

One of my recent trips to the local thrift store found me coming home with a bag full of little, round plastic beads. As soon as I saw them I thought 'minni picture frames'! A little paper and spray paint and I have myself a bunch of table top picture frames. To make them them sit on the table properly I simply folded a tiny piece of card stock and glued it on to the back of the pictures.

the plastic beads were a bronze kind of colour originally so I spray painted them cream
the finished pictures
What do you think?
