Love is in the air at my house......





Love is in the air at my house and so are birthdays. My son turned 17 on Thursday and my daughter turned 20 on Friday. Today I put Hannah on a plane with her friend for a week long trip. Part of her birthday. Let me tell you it is so hard to let her go. I know I have too but it is so hard. I hoping the time will go by quickly especially since I have so much to do.
I thought I would share some pictures of just one of things I have been working on. I love Valentines day. It is my favorite to do in miniature. This is a special request sneak peek as I'm not quite done yet.....I do hope she loves it. Well back to keeping my mind off of Hannah. Mini hugs!

It is always hard to let the children get out of our reach.... we love them so much and it´s hard not to be there and protect them! But she will be fine and have a lot of fun and your week will soon be over.
Continue to make these beautiful miniatures, I love them and it´s always so exiting to see what you are making next!!

So lovely as are all of your creations. You just have the touch. And Happy Belated Birthday to your children.

I have changed the name of my blog from Mini Leaps and Bounds to Peach Blossom Hill if you don't mind changing it if I'm listed in your blog roll or list. Thanks, Kim. DH bought me a new laptop after my former one died so with my renewed ability to blog, I changed the name.

Your precious miniatures are made with such love that seems Valentine all year. It is a little marvel, a greeting from Spain, Sonia.

Absolutely charmingly beautiful as always Kim..somebody is very lucky to be getting such stunning work made with love! As for children...they do grow up so fast but then we wouldn't be too happy if they weren't able to strike out on their own as hard as it may be at the time! They always come back to Mum sometime...even if it's just for some good food!
Mini hugs,
Linda
