Party Dress

Are you tired of looking at my tiny sized creations? I hope not! 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, 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! I have started a second blog all about my little doll Tika and the fun , tiny makings, which you can visit here if you would like to follow along. And starting in July, as we ramp up for the Tour de Fleece on Ravelry, this blog will return to my fiber related activities. I am getting organized for that, collecting fiber, carding batts and deciding which spinning techniques I want to work on. I am once again looking forward to all the great spinning inspiration from the Team of Wonder

I hope you are keeping cool, have a great weekend.
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!

A Tiny Sofa For Tika

My little doll Tika 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?

Fairy Rose

The largest blossom on the Fairy Rose is nearly ready to open, it's such a pretty, delicate little thing. I am quite excited to see it in full bloom! I did a some work on the garden path, it's a little more whimsical and fits in better with the style of the space. I actually took up the old path, and made a template of the path, then made a mosaic. And I have ordered an arbor with a little gate, which I am excitedly waiting to receive.

I hope you are having a delightful week and that the weather is as nice in your part of the world, here it's quite beautiful!

Blessings Friends!

New Faerie Garden

Boy have I been mia, or what? It's been so busy around here, I just had to take a little break from posting. Now that it is officially a new month, I'd better get back into the swing of things! I'm still going to cheat a bit and do a short post. One of the many gardening projects I had on my list was making this faerie garden. I still have some tweaking to do, but it is mostly finished. The center piece of the garden is a Pink Fairy rose and I am quite excited to have found three tiny buds getting ready to bloom! The other plants I used were lemon thyme, mother of thyme, pink baby's breath, silver mound and sea pinks. The faerie house was at one time a bird house I picked up at the craft store and cut out a door opening. I decorated it using sparkly faerie colors. I hope you notice that I also have some wee faerie sheep, I am hoping to attract some spinning faeries to the little garden and I am on the lookout for a faerie sized spinning wheel!

I hope you have a delightful weekend! Blessings Friends!
