An Unknown Maker

I do not know who made this table, but I just found a lil wood chip and recognized it as the missing leg! Today is an unknown maker day for #summerminifun with @vintagedollhouseshop (and I guess it’s also leg day over here). I’ll bet someone out there has seen these gams before; do you know… Continue reading An Unknown Maker

Family Reunion

Day 18-Family Reunion Tweed Reed saw the family reunion prompt was coming up for #summerminifun with @vintagedollhouseshop, so he invited his cousin Hunek to come by for a visit.

That’s a good gap of time so my best guess is a range from 2006-2011. They have been… Continue reading My First Made Dolls

It’s in Hand

Day 13- It’s in Hand I once worked with an archaeologist who had an one-inch ruler tattooed on one finger, and a centimeter scale on another. Just in case they found something to photograph. We don’t always collect what we find, so that scale comes in handy later. Many minis in hand today for day… Continue reading It’s in Hand

Housewarming

Housewarming gifts 🏠❤️ It’s repurposed or rescued day for #summerminifun with @vintagedollhouseshop so I thought it would be a good day to wander over to the craft store for some dollhouse fixings.
