Party Dress and Capelet

This is my friend Marilyn's doll, she is dressed up in the little party dress and capelet I made for her.  Marilyn is the one who started me down this slippery slope into the world of little collectable dolls. Though it didn't take much arm twisting, as you know I love knitting tiny clothes and making small things. And boy have been making all kinds of tiny things I am excited to share with you, stay tuned!

Blessings Friends!

A Wee Chandelier

I had the idea to make a tiny crystal chandelier for Tika's flat. I love wire work and this project was especially fun. So much fun in fact that I didn't stop there, I made two chandeliers and a double candlestick lamp resembling stylized daffodils. Things are coming together in this tiny little space, we have a new table and chairs and I have made some pretty rugs too. The table and chairs were nearly a perfect fit. The chairs were made so that the seat was flush with the underside of the table. I fixed that by shortening them a touch, now they are the perfect size! Did you notice the little bedside table made out of match books? Little by little it's coming right along and I'm having so much fun!

Have a great week, blessings friends

Tika's Tiny Sofa

My little doll Tika (aka Amelia Thimble) is decorating her new flat. After seeing the dismal looking and very expensive furniture available out there, I decided to try my hand at making my own. Tika is so tiny, only 4 inches tall, by making the sofa myself, I was able to make it just the right size! I am happy with how it turned out, but I can see plenty of room for improvement, what do you think?
