Rainy morning and buttery croissants

It is cold and icky out today. No school which = no extra running around for me. I made good use of the time and made some buttery croissants. Anyone want to join me? I will put on a pot of tea for us. These are clay so zero calories. I would be happy to run the down to the french bakery for some real ones. Happy Monday everyone. I think I will go try some with chocolate. Mini hugs!

Creating a cupcake shoppe

Many times my real gets in the way of my miniature time and that can be very depressing. Other times after going through some time away from the miniatures I can get so addicted to them again that I don't know my real life anymore. During the last few weeks of cleaning after Miss Hannah moved out I came across some boxes of things I forgot I had. One of those things was this little cupcake shop I started and then tucked away for another day. Well I think its time it gets done and opened for business. What to you think? Note to self finish everything I start. Well we will see about that one. I'm sure going to try until real life comes calling again. Mini hugs!

Birthdays, life's changes and miniatures

Shabby kitchen for CDHM online magazine
Join me for tea?
Liberty's tea party in miniature
Emily, Hannah ( aka birthday girl) & Me
Okay so where to begin. Last weekend my daughter Hannah turned 21. She also moved into her first apartment. I can't believe where the time has gone or that she is old enough to have her own place. Needless to say it has been a tough adjustment. For us both. The move is only about 10 minutes away and I'm so thankful for that.
Still working on the bakery modeled after the real shop. Should be done and ready to share soon. I also put together a kitchen room box for the CDHM online magazine. I thought I would share a couple pictures here. I had so much fun with it.
I don't know how many of you saw Mercedes post about the little tea party she did for the adorable Liberty but I was so inspired when I saw it I had to recreate it in miniature. I'm very happy to say it was a nice distraction and is now on its way to New Zealand.
I guess that catches you up for now. I do wish you all a nice weekend. I hope yours includes some mini time. Thats what I have planned for mine. Mini hugs!
