Dollhouse Miniature Favorite; Peach Pit Basket

Isn't this just the cutest thing!

This is one of my most favorite miniatures in my collection.

It's a basket that was carved out of a peach pit by my grandfather. I guess he had made it for my mother when she was a little girl, it's probaby seventy some years old by now.

Have you ever heard of people carving things out of peach pits?

I never really thought about it before, so I did a quick search and found there is a lot of information out there.

These two links stood out.

Pretty cool, huh? :)

I like the tiny little woven basket next to it as well. I can't remember where I got that, but you can see that in relationship to the peach pit, it's pretty tiny. It's the smallest basket in my collection.

Between pillows and baskets, you can never have too many. This is true in real life and in the miniature world. Though, my husband may beg to differ. ;)


  1. It's really awesome!
    I own something my great grand mother did when seh was young. I'm not sure how old it is.
    It's a black crocheted cape, and it's beautiful and still modern. Something that will never go out of fashion. I'm ver proud of owning it, and I guess you must be very proud to own that basket :)

    And the two sites show amazing artists as well!


  2. How sweet Stephanie, I'm taking that it's full scale and not mini? We do get sentimental about some things, don't we?

    I thought the carved heads were pretty wild! :)


I love to hear what you have to say! Thank you so much for taking the time to comment. :)
