Welcome New Followers and printables

To my newest followers I just wanted to say hello and welcome to my little spot on the blog! 

 As a wee welcome I scanned two things that can be printed out and used in for your dollhouses.  Of course you can also enlarge the envelope to use in real life.  Just print the template in whatever size you need on a pretty piece of patterned paper and your good to go!

You can add any logo you want to the mini box.

beautiful bracelet giveaway

Oh, I found the cutest little blog today.  Jody from Home and Heart is a crafty mom who makes the prettiest jewelry.  Her blog is worth a visit all on its own but to make things even sweeter she is holding two giveaways for some wonderful jewelry.  One is just for followers and one is open to everyone.  In her Hands of Friendship giveaway she offers up two great necklaces to anyone who leaves a comment.  The black and white design is so elegant, don't you think? 

Go check out her blog here and get your name in for one of these great designs! She will draw names on November first so don't delay.

My first miniatures show visit

Hello everyone,

Today I did something I have never done before, I attended the MET Show.  That would be the Miniature Enthusiasts of Toronto Show.  This is the first show I have ever been to so I was so excited I got up early.  On a Sunday!  Yeah, like I said, I was excited.  So, I left the boys at home and headed in to Toronto with dreams of 'mini' tea pots and flowers in my head.  It was great, although it was a little smaller than what I had dreamed up.  Over all though it was wonderful to wander at my leisure while browsing all the little things on offer and displayed for a jury.  I did buy a tea pot and a holly plant too!  I also picked  up a mailbox, a basket, some jars,  and some mice for my kitchen!

New 1:12 furniture from CSN Stores

Good afternoon everyone.  You know what's great about the Internet?  It brings people together.  Really!  First it has connected me to all of you who read this blog.  I have met some pretty great people that I count as friends through blogging, and I treasure each and every one of you who visit me here.  Second, thanks to web and most especially Pay Pal, I have really gotten to know my local mail delivery guy!  He's a nice guy too by the way.  He is always happy and polite.  I shudder to think what I would do with out him.  Why, only yesterday he brought me the most wonderful package.  It took me hours of pouring over the CSN Stores site and debating back and forth with myself about just how much I just had to have but I finally made my decision and lo and behold it's here. 

As you can see, I decided on some dollhouse furniture for the living room.  I love it!  Love it, love it, love it!  I set it up just to give you all, and me, an idea of what it will look like.  Ignore the piece of paper where the door will one day be.  When you see my Halloween set up on the front porch you will understand why it is there.  That, I will show you another time but for now, check out a book I did for the scene. 

They are not the best pictures but you get the idea.  The skull picture is from The Graphics Fairy.  I just shrunk it to mini size and put it onto a book I covered in black fabric.  The red bit you can sort of see in the picture is a book mark. 

Have a great night,

Happy Canadian Thanksgiving

It's Thanksgiving weekend here in Canada and we are having our turkey dinner here tonight.  The place is smelling pretty great right now!  We have also started to do some holiday decorating.  I found some white little pumpkins at the local grocery store and made up a 'spooky' sign.  What do you think? 

The second job of the day was to attempt to make carmel apples with my son.  It was the first time I have ever made them and we haven't tasted them yet, but they look good!  Have a great weekend everyone,

opinions needed.. wish lists wanted

Hello everyone,  today I come to you begging for feedback.  My step dad, you remember the handy guy that fixes and builds stuff for me, is looking to build some miniatures for all of you too!  Before he gets started though he would like to get an idea of what miniature enthusiasts such as us would love to see being made and sold.  This is our chance to dream big so please, please comment and let us know what dream project or dollhouse item would you love to see being made.  Would it be a unique type of dollhouse?  A specific type or style of furniture?  How about a hard to find accessory.  Tell us your ideas and remember, no wish is too big to dream!
