Let the beauty we love be what we do........

Since I haven't been a good blogger lately I thought I would just let the pictures speak for themselves. They express just some of what I have been doing over the last few weeks. Yes, my miniature life has been busy and to me beautiful. I wouldn't trade it for anything. I hope you enjoy your visit here today. Happy Holidays and of course mini hugs~

Its all in a days work

So today started out with a empty little display unit. Painted shabby white a week ago I had a hard time deciding what to put inside. Should it be bread?, should it be cupcakes?, and then I decided I wanted to fill it with muffins. And so my day began....... I made blueberry, blueberry crumb, cherry, cherry crumb, chocolate, lemon poppy seed, pumpkin and banana. I'm happy to have it done and I think it turned out just as I hoped. I hope you like it too. Off to bed I go with a homemade pumpkin muffin in my hand. Nothing like the real thing....... its what inspires me. Till next time. Mini hugs~

Mini baking with blueberries and cherries

I love blueberries and I love cherries and boy do I wish these were real right now. I think I will be running to the store in a bit to help with this craving these minis have caused me to have tonight. Thought I would share them with you and see if they have the same effect. I hope all is happy in your mini world. I will be back soon with more fun things to see. I promise this will be a fun place to visit again. Now where are my keys? Mini hugs~

When life hands you lemons...........

So as summer is coming to a end we have been enjoying some beautiful weather. Made a big bowl of fresh salsa on Sunday. While at the farmers market I stood next to a display of lemons and the smell was amazing. Lemons are summer to me. Fresh lemonade, ice tea with lemon, fresh fish with lemon and of course life wouldn't be complete without lemon cake. Lemon bundt, lemon pound, lemon layer and the list goes on...... So today I share with you some mini lemon baking. A great way to start don't you think? I instantly smell lemon when I see these pictures. I hope you do the same. Enjoy! Mini hugs~

New Beginnings~

I could think of no better title for this long over do post than " New Beginnings". It perfectly describes my life right now. I have been away awhile I know but I have been very busy. Before my disappearance I was struggling with my kids getting older and just where that left me. Well that was really only the half of it. I have gone thru some very big changes , none of which were easy for me. We decided to sell our house of 11 years because we could no longer afford it. Talk about tough. I had 11 years of things to go thru and I don't like getting rid of things. There was lots of painting to do too. So I painted and as I was painting I cried and mourned the loss of my home. I thought about my kids and all the firsts that happened there......and I cried some more.
Really it had become more house than we needed and now it was time to go back to where I grew up. Closer to my mom, my brother and his family, and really closer to my kids who all seem to be moving in the same direction. It is a cute little house , with a room for making my miniatures. I will give you a little look at my new life . No not my miniature life this time. Oh and did I mention I have a porch? Well I do. So come on over for a visit and I will make cookies and lemonade.
Change is hard but it can be good too! So heres to new beginnings!
Glimpses of the kitchen. Still working on this shabby wall.
I hope to put recipes under the glass on the table.
My creative space. I hope to make many more miniatures here.
Will you join me for some mini making?
I love roses!
Mini is here too!
Emily's room. The only child living at home now.
The view from my new front door. Life is a series of doors. Old ones close and new ones open. I'm excited and nervous to see where my new life takes me. But I know I'm going to be okay. Till next time. Mini Hugs~
