Merry Christmas!!!

Wishing all of you out there in blog land a most wonderful and joyous Christmas! :)

Sorry I haven't been around to post much, I've just been really busy this month, as I'm sure we all have been. :)

I've only been able to pop in now and again sporadically to comment on blogs, I tried to send out as many Merry Christmas's as I could.

So here's one Grand Merry Christmas to you all. :)

May the day be filled with warmth and love and you spend it with your friends, family and loved ones.
Wishing you all the bounty of the season. :)

Featured Artist: Yuki of Amatheria

Here are some miniatures I got from Yuki, recently. :)

These darling Ikea inspired end tables, aren't they cute?

This beautiful triptych in my favorite colors.
Too funny, he had them labeled on the back; left, center, right.
I thought oh, I can figure that out, lol. ;)
This is the second picture I had to take, cause the first one was out of order and one was upside down. ;)

Isn't it just beautiful, though? That's all hand painted. :)

I cut off a word here, it says, "Origami Samurai Helmet Inside"

I definitely needed one, as I didn't have one! :)

And, here it is! How cute is this? It's like less than a half of an inch, all folded up so precisely, what a treat! :)

To round it out, for my love of pink and kitties, a bunch of tiny pink kitty cut outs in two shades.
How thoughtful of him. :)

Thanks, Yuki! :)

If you haven't been by his shop, you do have to check it out. He specialises in quite a number of things and he does a lot of research and study before he creates to make accurate as possible, a true representation in miniature.

That is pretty cool!

In his shop, you will find Ikea inspired furniture, Japanese handpainted screens, miniature origami, Miniature Antique Japanese books and books on horoscopes and mythology.

His interests wear me out. ;)
To see his shop, click on the title of this post and it should take you right there. Be sure to let him know that dale sent you. ;)

I have two new followers to welcome and they are; dollmum you can find her blog here, where she shares her love of dolls and  LĂșcia Soares, I don't see a blog for her. Lucia and dollmum, Welcome! :)
Lucia, if you have a blog, leave me a comment with your website. Thanks for following, ladies. :)

I've been very busy making miniatures. I must have spent twenty hours last Saturday and Sunday creating. Fun, but, a little tiring. ;)  I've been trying to expand on what is in my etsy shop and include some new and different types of things. Check out my etsy shop here and let me know what you think about the new arrivals. I'm interested in any suggestions, advice or opinions. Thanks!

Today has been a busy and long day, I'm hoping to have a nice quite evening and catch up on my blog reading. It's so easy to get behind, as new posts are always being created!

Don't worry, I have that compulsive urge to look up all of the older posts to make sure I don't miss anything. Of course, if I commented on every post, y'all would probably kick me out of blogland for seeing my name too often. ;)

Here's hoping that everyone's holiday preparations are going smoothly and that you are enjoying all of the festivities and social engagements that come along with this time of year. :)

ps, just a cautionary note to my fellow bloggers, do use google translator before posting messages in another language. I had the most surprising comment today, and that's all I'll say as, I like to keep this rated G, for good. ;)

I'm in a Treasury!

At etsy. :)

It was made by Joyce of mostlyart, she makes the most fabulous, hand sculpted pottery in 1/12th scale (not thrown!). I'm the proud owner of a couple of her pieces, soon to be more, I am sure. :)

Last weekend, I made a treasury and I forgot to promote it. Well, that with the fact that I got it around 3am, don't ask, I won't tell, LOL! ;)

You can find it on beep beep's blog and you must check out her etsy shop here, she makes the most darling 1/12th scale miniature hand knitted cardigans, they are to die for. I know I must get one soon. :)

Sorry, no picture to go along with this post. I'm just popping in via hubby's puter amidst my wild dashing about of the day. Just had to promote some of my girls, lol  ;)

Oh, and if you want to see the treasury, just click on the title of the entry and it will take you right there. :)

dashes back out ;)

Dollhouse Miniature Monogram Pillows

They're all here in my etsy shop.

So, if you've been patiently waiting for a specific letter of the alphabet, it's all there from A-Z plus four coordinating patterned pillows.

These pillows are fun, I've enjoyed making them and sending them all around the world.

Use them for your own initials, or even to spell words.  They have an art nouveau style to them.  Backed with a black and white gingham, the end result reminds me of Mackenzie-Childs or Mary Englebreit.  I guess we share our love of the black and white checks.

Full details and description can be found in each listing, these are 1/12th scale dollhouse miniature pillows.

They also make a great gift for a little something, something for any miniaturist. Quantities are limited, so don't wait to make your purchase or you might lose out. :(

Looks like quite a few new followers have joined my blog spot. Now, I understand why people welcome more to the party, it is starting to have a party atmosphere here. ;)

So, let me welcome you all warmly. :)

From where we last left off, we have glimpse of my world, I don't know too much about her, yet.

Susan from Between Naps on the Porch, yeah, she just has a couple of followers, LOL! I've been following her blog for a while now and it's filled with lots of eye candy and decorating/table scape ideas.

Begonia, she's a relatively new miniaturist.

callsmall has really sharp images of her minis, often modern and often quite colorful. :)

sabiha and she blogs about her mini projects.

Birgitta is Swedish, and I don't know too much more about her, she's a photographer.

And finally, Ose who is not in any way least. ;) She seems like a really nice lady with a good sense of humor. I've been enjoying her blog Room by Room for quite a while and she has a second blog as well, here, it's a mini barbershop.

Whew! That was a lot!
Just click on any of the colored words for links and say hello if you have the chance. :)

Welcome everyone, and thank you for following my blog. :)

Until next time... ;)
