Old dollhouse miniatures make for a fun evening......







Yesterday I went to visit a miniature friend whose dollhouse store I had spent years and years going too. She no longer has her store but has a wonderful collection of miniature estates that she takes to shows and sells. During our visit I got to got thru boxes filled with things like these. A dream I know. This is some of what I came home with. My favorite is the copper pots or maybe the rolling pins or .....Oh I love it all. A visit with a old friend and dollhouse miniatures makes for the perfect evening. Don't you think? Mini hugs!
