Dolls House World Showcase

 Good Day to all my fellow Bloggers.

I was recently contacted by Maria Fitzgerald who wished to have my vintage shabby chic shelving display in there Miniature Showcase section. I was very honored and of course said yes. The August issue is Dolls House World's 300th issue. Wow so happy to see minis still going strong! Its a great magazine with lots of tutorials featuring in this special issue.

I was also happy to find out that my Friend Rebecca of Tiny Dwelling was also featured in the issue. How wonderful. Love her items, she is such a kind and generous soul. Her shop features lots of amazing items and she is now the exclusive US dealer for Jacominis. She has a promotion on right now.  For every Jacominis order placed in August, YOU will receive a FREE GIFT, maybe TWO! 

Check out her WordPress site and her Etsy Store.



Thanks again to Maria for including me in the magazine. I hope you all have a wonderful mini filled day.

As for me, my days have been busy lately. I am working on lots of new minis, trying to  work and still take time off to enjoy the summer.

Dolls House & Miniature Scene magazine



Dolls House & Miniature Scene Magazine

I hope everyone in blog land is having a wonderful summer, I have been so busy I am quite late in making many posts, so for the next few days I will be trying to catch up. I had the honor of having my work showcased in Dolls House & Miniature Scene magazine. Below is the article that my new 18th Century letters were featured in.  Antique mail fascinates me, I love the writing and amazing stamps that accompany these vintage pieces of art. I hope you enjoy the article. This was from the June Issue, my apologies for my late posting.



Here is a link if you wish to find out more about this amazing Magazine.
Thank you Sadie for sending me these wonderful pictures from the article.

Below are some more pictures of the vintage 18th Century Mail.


I love the look of folded letters, there is nothing that brings life to a scene more than adding some letters.

Cabinets de curiosités

So my long overdue picture of my Chicago Submission for The Miniature Show.
I made up several cabinets for the show this is the one that I entered. I have such a blast putting it together, it has a butterfly theme. I had a fantastic time in Chicago and would love to go again. I will post more pictures in the next few days of other cabinets I made and my show table. Hope you enjoy. This cabinet took me approx 2-3 plus days to create, but I love the organic process that happens when I make them.
Enjoy!




Love all things messy and stacked!

New Half Scale Items Coming to my Etsy Shop.

I have just started to carry more 1/2 scale (1/24) items in my Etsy Shop. There is lots more still to come. All my books are made with great care and attention to detail.
I fill all my books with real pages (Not Foam) which gives them a very realistic look from any angle.
