Inspiration - where OH Where does it come from.

I recently started subscribing (again) to Coastal Living and while glancing thru it, I found this lovely cabinet in a room they featured.


It's a lovely cabinet and I would love to have one just like it in my house.


I had this little hutch with doors.   Took the doors off and added things.   Everythig, except the lighthouses, was in my stash of minis.   Has a few books, boats, candles, seagulls and lighthouses.   One of the things I used is the little cork stoppered jar with tiny fishing bobbers in it.  Love them and have been looking for a place for them for several years now.  One little red and white bobber is glued to the shelf.

April OMB Main Street Civic Center

Last month I built this building.  I was thinking how very happy my mini people would be to go to a doll and dollhouse show.  Where to hold the show.  A civic center would be perfect.










This was so much fun!

Birthday swap - mini things

As you know, I belong to several on-line miniature groups.    Swap Shop is one of them and they do a birthday swap every year.    You get a chance to list your 1st, 2nd, and 3rd choices of themes you'd like to receive,   They are sent to the coordinator who sorts them and mails them out throughout the following year.   Mine came Early, but I did have enough will power not to immediately open them up. 

What a jackpot!!!

This didn't have a name tag on it; but by the process of elimination, it had to be Karen.
