Miniature Vintage Aprons and more Ottomans

Working on Aprons and Ottomans

Took a little time off miniatures to hang out with my daughter during Christmas break. School will start again next week, so I can get back to work.  Here are a few things I started working on before the holiday and will be adding to my shop in a week or so.

Vintage aprons in mini size. I worked on these with my fab mom (who can sew anything!) They are very pretty with a bib, pleated skirt and pocket. Below I have photo'd just a few of the colors I will be selling in my Etsy shop.

I will also have a few more ottomans (still working on the details), including textured leather, beautiful shabby chic yellow with flowers, a nice blue and white stripe, and a lovely pink with ruffles.
Sorry about the photography, I'm sneaking this post in while my daughter has a play date ;).
Wishing you a Happy New Year!

Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas

So happy that Mother Nature decided to put the sun away and bring in the clouds. I can light my fireplace without guilt while I play Christmas music and bake Santa cookies on this beautiful Christmas Eve. From my home to your home, have a peaceful evening.

All cozy and warm

Spent this week working on a Christmas surprise

A Surprise from Santa

My plan was to spend a few days this week working on a surprise for my daughter. She's been asking me to make an American Girl Doll Bed (Julie's Bed) for, forever. I checked out the web site and immediately thought, mom's coming over this week, this looks like a good project for us. I ran over to Michael's, picked up a few pieces of wood and started mapping out the plan. A few days later we had what we thought was a pretty nice looking Julie bed frame.
So, I've been working on miniatures for awhile and I guess I thought I could just glue this pretty large bed. Well, walking the frame to the garage for paint, I bumped into the door and the entire frame fell apart! After my "oh my gosh", I will just buy the darn bed" phase. I calmed down, went to the store to purchase some very fine nails and started all over again. Needless to say, this project took the entire week. The bed is finally complete and Santa is going to score some major points for this surprise.
Our interpretation on the Julie Bed, 3 sets of sheets, a reversible awning and duvet cover.

Okay, now I'm going back to mini's and glue! ;)
