Welcome to my blog

If you enjoy finding a lot of different outlets for your creativity, then we may just be kindred spirits.
This blog is an outlet for my interest in miniatures, crochet, plastic canvas, and many other various arts and crafts.

I also love walking, taking digital photos, and most recently, have rediscovered an old love...bike riding! I purchased an amazing new bike, a comfy Townie by Electra this summer, and have been having a grand time exploring the area as though for the first time. It's like being a kid again!

If you enjoy any of these things too, pour a cup of coffee and tea, sit down, and join me.

Take care!

I found the mini furniture I bought on my trip to Guelph last month!

I'm so happy that I found this bag of mini furniture!

I found the items at a discount "buck or two" type store in Guelph, and I was so happy to find them for such great prices...1.99 for two pieces of furniture per package.

I thought I had left the bag behind in the hotel room in Guelph, but today I found it tucked away inside another bag, full of yarn.  I must have packed it with the yarn to keep it from breaking...then forgot all about it, lol.

I don't want to take them out of the packaging yet because I'm not ready to paint them; I'm still working on the dollhouse.  They're just so cute and tiny.

I also found this little nail set, with cute mini containers that are perfect for mini settings. 

The little stools are my favorite.  I'll have to make a little kitchen island for them, or maybe I can save them for an ice cream parlor or old fashioned drug store.

It's nice to have furniture all put together.  I have a cool 56  piece furniture kit, but it's going to take forever to paint and put together, lol.

  1. You sure got a lot of great bargains. I also love the stools. The nail set is great.
