Sharing Sundays! :)

This is a new thing I am starting for Sundays.
 
I want to document my collection of miniatures so I can get them out of the packaging and get to enjoy them.

 I was just going through a bunch of stuff and I had no idea what I had bought.

That's no fun, right?

So, I'm going to document them all here and where they are from and who knows, you might find a new place to get something, or find something that you have been looking for. :)


Deb made this custom for me in pink, after I caught eye of one she made in chocolate.

Isn't it cool? 

It's a large cake, it's for a very festive party, with lots of guests! :)

You can find her etsy shop here.


Chairs I bought from MothersMiniTreasures on etsy.

I want to redo the upholstery on these. 


A beautiful black acrylic hat stand by the wonderful Tom Saunders.

You can find his shop here.

Which reminds me, I really want to make some hats.

I made a pillbox hat for an Easter swap last year? or was that the year before?


I should make some more, it was fun to do.

See! Already getting distracted and side tracked.

Where were we?


Two pink glass vases, almost iridescent, from Cookie's Bits & Pieces.

I got these one year at Philadelphia Miniaturia, which, lucky for me is virtually down the street.


I also bought this lovely handwoven basket there, by Julia Sudol.

I think women have a thing for baskets. Do you? I know I do, in real life and in miniature.

Maybe, it's because we are gatherers. :)


and the last share of the day...

Wine glasses from The Little Dollhouse Company.

Prior to this purchase, the occupants of the house had to swig directly from the only bottle of wine.

So, glasses were very important! And, they are surprisingly really sturdy little things. 

Thanks for sharing your Sunday with me.
I hope you enjoyed what I had to share.
dale :)

ps. I'm going to try to make my other postings on Thursdays, we'll see how that goes. ;)

  13. You have beautiful things - thanks for sharing. My 1:12th scale minis have been packed away for over 2 years and it will be fun to re-discover them when I am able to unpack them too. It's like Christmas again, isn't it?Sandie
