Still Christmas Around Here...

Happy New Year everyone! I'm still working on these ornaments for everyone I had intended to give one to for Christmas. But like everything else...it's taking more time than usual because of the challenges living with lupus. I tackle a little bit everyday when I'm not resting or my hands just won't work. I think if I can get them all done by Valentine's Day... I'll be doing pretty good, ha! :) I can't wait to get these completed so I can start work on my first ever giveaway contest for my lovely followers here on the blog...so stay tuned!

Hope you're all having fun with your minis. Thanks for stopping by to check out mine! Many mini hugs!

Christmas cookies!

A "forest" of decorated trees, one for each ornament scene!
My first go with mini spaghetti. 
And another mini gingerbread house!

A round tin of Italian treats - pizelles! A delicate Italian waffle cookie. 

A pizelle "sandwich" with vanilla ice cream and raspberries.
Mmmm..spaghetti with meatballs! My favorite meal growing up!
Of course, a little loaf of bread in the oven.
Gingerbread people fresh from the "oven."

I love these teeny tiny Christmas lights. Found them 75% off at A.C. Moore at their after Christmas sale. They look soooo real on the miniature trees!
Thank you so much for stopping by! Many mini hugs! :)

Vermont Dollhouse - More Work on the Conservatory Addition

Both additions have been painted and attached, they look marvelous! Real Good Toys is a win win for quality dollhouse materials! Just need to add the shingles and the exteriors are done!
Where in the world we're going to find a table/dollhouse stand to fit this very large house, I have no idea yet, but we'll figure something out. For now, our kitchen table is it. :)
The inside of the Conservatory addition - a.k.a. "music room" without the flooring installed.
A $1.26 block of adhesive backed vinyl tile from Home Depot made a terrific "marble" floor that took a minute to cut and install. Who knew?
The window interiors need framed, and we'll add a guitar, cello, music stand, perhaps a flute and some chairs, and some music infused pictures on the wall, and this room will be complete!

The lovely piano was purchased from Hobby Lobby.
The future dining room on the first floor, and a child's bedroom  on the second floor. We want to select just the right interior design and furniture. Woot Woot! :) We spray painted the ceiling in the dining room white first before installing wallpaper - learned THAT the hard way with the main house!
The main house - still a work in progress, eventually we'll add curtains and pictures on the walls, really personalize it and make it "cozy."
The staircase will be upgraded with posts and a railing.

These rooms definitely cry out for curtains and some floor rugs for warmth.

Lots of creativity waiting to be explored in here. :)
