A Lovely Long Summer

It's been a lovely summer and I have to tell you that it continues here! I'm lucky enough to still be making minis in the garden and now that all the family visits are over and I have more time I can show you what has been happening in my mini world.
I was sent an amazing surprise present from Iris! It was such a lovely thing to do, I couldn't believe she had made all these things for me.
Iris is new to making miniatures (so she says!) but is obviously a natural. Everything is beautifully made. She also has a new blog showing all the gorgeous things she makes and has lots of followers already. Take a look here. Congratulations on your new blog, Iris and thank you again for the lovely presents.

I've also been making bedding for my second swap with Kaisa. She has sent me a little cradle and like our previous swap with the sofa bed, I've made bedding for hers. This is the cradle. And just like Kaisa she also sent me more presents - a rocking horse and a toy 'pop gun'. Thank you so much.
I can't show you the bedding until Kaisa receives it and I only posted it today.

As I mentioned before I don't buy many dolls but this one I bought a few years ago at a fair in Felixstow just because she has such a lovely outfit and I decided she can now sit in the tea shop.

 Now I must work on some orders I have for my Etsy shop. I hope you're having a good week and the sun is shining in your part of the world.


  1. Iris gave you a nice present! I also really liked the cradle and the lady of the tea house is very beautiful!

  2. I'm so glad you like it, Gill! =D I think the dolls' outfit is just precious. I love her hat and cardigan. Can't wait to see what bedding you've made. =)
