Tablescapes Shabby Cottage Vintage-Miniature

Deciding to get some work done, I started sewing, painting, redecorating....
One of my favorite rooms in my house is the dining room...in my big house. I always have the table set, with a centerpiece....(it keeps hubby from setting down all his mail, farm supplies...You name it!)....
So I had this thought...what if I made a little miniature tablesetting. I've done tablescapes for years with Susan over @ http://betweennapsontheporch.net and decided to try my hand at it, in miniature dollhouse scale.

Sweet little plates, napkins, and dishes with roses...a rooster for a centerpiece. I do this on my own table...so of course it is easy to duplicate in miniature. I added bullion fringe to the tablecloth, and made the red polka dot napkins, slid them through a large red bead that is a napkin ring.  All my favorite things...just in a little way.
While I was working on my tablescapes...I've done several so far...I found a wonderful gal in Canada named Jennifer who makes the most adorable miniature dollhouse flatware!
We are teaming up on Etsy to do a few tablescapes together. She can be found here on her blog
and here on Etsy @
I can't wait. I have ordered a red and white set...and
a set to go with Halloween tables capes! 
A couple of her photos....

Just as soon as I get some pictures together of her flatware and my dishes I will be sure to post the cuteness!

Oh and some wonderful news! 
I am going to be a grandmother! Yay...early spring. Couldn't be happier! They are the couple on the right...our son and his beautiful wife! Woohoo!

So from my farmhouse kitchen to yours....
