Moving…... The journey continues!

My Favorite new old hutch

Time for a change on the table. Still has flowers just not the roses. 

Farm fresh eggs!

Gift from my daughter. Love this special cookbook.

Painted old window. So fun!

I love to have my favorites all over my house. It makes me happy!

All my rolling pins are now displayed in a metal basket.

I've used this sign many times in miniature of course it's in my real home too!

My old kitchen was a warm yellow. The white is new too me but I love the change.

There is a place for everything!

The roses have a new home

A closer peek at the hutch
Setting up my new miniature room. Bigger than my old one with more storage! Yay!

Everything has a place. My favorite is my cabinet with glass doors. Holds my room boxes perfectly!

Love this room
Dollhouse moving is a big job
Time to put everything back in place

Craft room in my dollhouse

I spy "Its a miniature life" on the wall

Setting up the kitchen too!

So where to begin. I have been away for awhile. We moved at Christmas. It was a crazy time. But life is starting to get back to normal. I thought you might enjoy some pictures of our new place and my new miniature life :) Thanks to everyone who checked on me. It's nice to be missed and cared about. Hope you had a Happy New Year! I will be back to making minis again soon. xoxo

Could it be another post? Yes, I feel a new post coming on and it didn't take me months to do it!

Apple pie

Don't want pie? we can have cake :)

I love creating baked goods with polymer clay

Makes me ready for the holidays!

Apple pie is my favorite!

But I really like pumpkin cake too!

Rustic hutch filled with todays baking. Cooling pies and more!

Just thought I would share with you what I did today! The weather is changing It is getting cold. The leaves are looking more and more beautiful here. I'm ready for the change. I'm ready for sweaters and boots. I've started working on some things for Winter Miniologie. How does a shabby chic cabin sound?  Stay tuned. I hope this post has made you just a little hungry and ready for the holidays! Wow, I'm proud of myself,  I just might be getting better at posting on my blog again.
Mini Hugs! Till next time..........

Happy Fall and a long overdo post

October means a trip to the pumpkin patch. Corn mazes, pie, and warm cider. The holidays are coming!

I love the colors of Fall. When I did this miniature baking hutch all I could think was yellow. I think red is the perfect color to be with this yellow. Don't you? This hutch makes me so happy! Candy apples and pumpkin pie too!

A miniature bike leaning on the old barn.  Just look at that perfect wicker bike basket created by Lidi Stroud. Check out her etsy shop Basketcase miniatures. We picked sunflowers. I love miniatures!

Old miniature barn aged with time. It is perfectly shabby chic inside. I have some future plans for this one.

I had the best time creating a miniature barn party scene. Don't you just love the little hay bales? This is one of my favorite pictures. It was a very hot morning when I took this pic.

There is always time to squeeze in a new mini kitchen. I painted this one instead of using wallpaper on the walls. I used a Martha Stewart blue and I think the darker wood was the perfect accent to this wonderful blue. Look there is stew on the stove and fresh pie cooling on the counter.

Tiny pumpkin love......
The beauty of Fall is showing itself everywhere. I took this picture on my hike today! I do hope you are finding time to get out and enjoy the color changes. It really is wonderful and so good for the soul. You will be glad you did.

Catching that beauty in miniature has been the best time ever! I hope you have enjoyed my first post  of  Fall. I plan on  trying to be a better blogger. I know I have said it before but all I can do is try! Thanks to those of you who write me emails to encourage me to come back. So nice to know I've been  missed and for you I will try harder. Oh and before I leave you I have to mention that our wonderful Fall miniologie is available @  Till next time....
                                                                          MINI  HUGS!

Happy Happy Happy!!!

      I will never stop believing...............

(Mini *ologie ) the art of finding happiness in all things miniature

Fresh and happy!
Say hello to.......Christel Jensen
Never give up on your dreams....go out and catch them instead.
Okay.........So where do I begin. I know it has been awhile. I have been a very busy lady for the last year. I know I promised to blog more and it hasn't happened. I do keep a regular post going on facebook though. That's something! Right? 
I'm here today to share with you this happy, beautiful little dream called "Miniologie". I joined with 2 other talented artists on this one. Cynthia Sperin and Maritza Moran!!!!! We came together and realized, that we all shared a common dream. You are about to see that dream un- fold.   Have you ever found yourself alone in your mini world with your crazy passion for miniatures?  Or are you one of the lucky ones who has many friends around you who share the same love of miniatures? I turned to the internet many years ago and found so many wonderful friends to share this beautiful hobby with. So glad I did!
  Many things in my life have changed but my love for miniatures and miniature decorating never has and I know never will. To have the chance to do this and to put all my love and passion for miniatures in a Seasonal publication,  Wow! A place to share, love and be happy.
Anyone who knows me will tell you I have tons of cookbooks and home magazines. I can't go anywhere without buying one. It really is no surprise to me that I would want to do this. It has been in my mind and many other minds too.  A decorating, inspirational, miniature magazine, done in the different Season's. There is nothing like it. That's what makes it special. We didn't want to do something already being done. It's something new!  I'm thrilled with how this first issue turned out. Just wait till the "Fall" issue.........
So thrilled that the beautiful and talented Christel Jensen joined us in this first "Summer" issue. If you don't know Christel yet, you will after reading her wonderful story about her and her sweet little mice.
Here is the link if you want Miniologie for yourself. Don't ever give up on your dream's my friends and don't stop believing! If one dream doesn't work out, just keep trying........Mini hugs and love always!
