Little miniatures make me happy!

Well I have been on a journey! A sweet little journey. Creating what I love....miniatures.
Joining in today http://modvintagelife.blogspot.com/


As a little girl I was in church many nights, my dad was a minister. I was always allowed to bring a tote full of toys....but only little things....after all my playground was a church pew.


My imagination made up rooms filled with beautiful little furniture....
while I provided the dolls and accessories. 
********************
In reality the church hymnal was the wall to my imaginary dollhouse. My moms' purse a headboard to a doll bed...


My imagination baked little cupcakes on my miniature toy stove....
My imagination ate meals from little tables set with dishes...
and oh the dollhouses I imagined on those pews....
several years later I decided to do something about
those little dreams....
I love Shabby Chic so why not miniature Shabby Chic? 

I love pretty beds, and tables layered with table cloths and table runners....so why not have them in my little world? 

Pie safes loaded with dishes....oh just thinking of the options makes me happy! I had opened an Etsy shop a long time ago....so why not make things to sell that I Love?

 A little French country....
....Shabby and Cottage Chic....

Why  not use vintage sheets for doll sheets?
 So...I decided if I could create now what I loved as a child....what would I make.....what kind of dishes would be on the table? What kind of bed linens would I dream up?


A Little sewing, painting,  and dreaming......

.....I'm creating.....which makes me very happy....this needed to happen a long time ago....but I waited and waited.....I should have taken this step ages ago.  It is a good step....I don't want to regret that I never got the chance to make things I love.
Are you dreaming of anything? Should you make a step? Towards something you love? Please let me know....
I have gotten inspiration from 

Cynthia-http://cynthiascottagedesign.blogspot.com who I met through blogging a few years back.  Years ago she showed the cutest little miniature refrigerator...I was in love...Her miniatures are beautiful.

And then recently...Susan  posted about her mini's here@
Again I swooned!
I just knew I had to do something....
So my journey is ongoing,
I hope you enjoy my story.
On my sidebar is my Etsy shop to see other goodies.
Let me know what dreams you need to be pursuing!
Blessings,
Debbie

Oh! The grown up Debbie is going to have even more fun than little Debbie did!

I'm already living my dreams but I'm sure once the youngest leaves home- my dreams will expand! ♥
