Birthday gifts

I just celebrated my 30th birthday, and these are the miniature-gifts I got!

My sister knitted me this cute blanket. It`s the first miniature she`s ever made, and I have given her hints for years that I would love to have something in my dollhouse that she had made. Finally she "gave in"... ;-D

From my two boys I got these Stokesay Ware jars.

My husband got me this baker`s rack by J. Getzan. I think it`s so beautiful! It has been on my wishlist for several years.

I put it in the Tuscan Villa and added some miniatures....

I also got a gift certificate at SP Miniatures. Can`t wait to pick out some minis!

I have finally put paperclay on my tree

This is what it looks like now. I also need to put something on the tip of the branches, but paperclay is too thick for that. I`ll have to paint something on them, and try to build up layers. Then I`m going to paint all of it... hope it will eventually look like a tree!

Country Victorian bedroom

I`ve had this picture since I was a child, and I`ve always liked it so much. I found it recently when I was cleaning up the attic, and I replaced the old frame with this one to make it more suitable for the dollhouse. I think it`s a bit big, but it`s special to me, so I want it in my dollhouse anyway.

At our last dollhouse club meeting I had prepared kits for everyone to make shelves like this. I decided to use the one I made for baby stuff in the bedroom.

I`ve made one more wicker chair

I just love the kits from Second Childhood! I have now made two of these chairs, one sofa and a table. After I finished the chair I realized that there`s not enough space for it on the patio.... Ah well, I`ll put it in La Belle Vie!
