I love surprises......don't you?

           Lavender Gift Set          

I love surprising family and friends with gifts.  To celebrate Spring, I made this pretty Lavender gift set.  The gift set includes a shopping bag, two bottles of lotion, two bottles of gel, and a presentation box.  I will gift this Lavender set to one of my wonderful blog followers.  I will pull the recipient's name from a box and 
announce the name on my next blog post.  Good Luck!

Pastries for LR Patisserie and Cafe

Sweet Temptations
This dessert counter is one of three dessert counters that will be displayed in the cafe.  

The very talented Lesley from the English Kitchen made the beautiful filled pastry boxes on the counter top and the amazing cake on the glass pedestal stand.  She also made some delightful pastries that appear inside the glass counter.

The beautiful work of Emma from Paris Miniatures is also displayed inside the counter.  Emma's pastry combinations presented on doilies are so unique and beautiful.  Rows and rows of her pastries are simply irresistible.

Amazing work by two amazing women!!!! 
Check out Lesley's website  and Emma's blog to see more of their stunning work. 

Until next time........

Mini version of Crabtree & Evelyn products

I love Crabtree & Evelyn products.  I have used these products for many years.  I also love the pretty packaging.  I must say, I have a nice collection of boxes.  One day, I decided to make use of my box collection by creating mini versions of them.  Here are some examples of my work.  I plan to make a mini version of a Crabtree & Evelyn shop for my private collection in the near future.  I'll keep you posted........

To try Crabtree & Evelyn products for yourself, please visit their website

Welcome to my new blog!!!!

The Inspiration

Peggy Porschen's cake parlour is so pretty......don't you think?  This parlour is the inspiration for my new miniature project, the "LR Patisserie and Cafe". I plan to model my miniature shop after this gorgeous shop.  I will share the progress of making LR Patisserie and Cafe here, on my new blog.  I hope you will follow the cafe's progress.  Also, I will share my private miniature collections and other fun stuff along the way.  Please visit Peggy's website for more inspiration.  I am very excited, so let's get started...........

The Shop Design

I purchased this miniature shop from ebay.  I really like the design and the kit is super easy to assemble.  I think this shop will work nicely.  I will have to make some adjustments though.  The next step.........making alterations to the basic design.

Some Sweets for the Cafe
........Before I go, please enjoy a peek at some goodies that will be displayed in the cafe.  Do you recognize any artist's work?

The very talented Eve from Afterdark Miniatures made the beautiful pink candy hutch.  The pretty chair and table set are made by master craftsman Jason of JGetzan Miniatures.  The divine desserts on the tables are made by the very talented Emma, from Paris Miniatures.  

Until next time........
