Even an unexpected visitor appeared to see what all the excitement was about.

Miniature Spring Tea Party: Unexpected Guest

This wild bunny, one of the many that hop free all over my yard, jumped out of the bushes just as I was taking a few test shots. I told him he was welcome to stay, but I guess he had other matters to attend for he scampered away down the hill a moment later.

Spring themed treats are available in the shop with many more to come.

Winter Comforts

I awoke today to a very wet and dark sky. Which is pretty typical for Oregon. And like most days, I feel like I’m still asleep somewhere and only dreaming that I’m awake. I only snap out of it during ridiculous moments when I go and try to do something bizarre. Like going to water the Christmas tree by filling a mason jar with water, then opening the freezer door and proceeding to dump it in. It’s also surprising to find things in weird places, like cream cheese in the spice cabinet and having no recollection of how it got there but knowing that you’re the only one who uses it.

Don’t worry. I don’t drive. And things do improve after a cup of coffee.

Winter in the pacific northwest can be hard or in any place where it’s cold and dark for extended periods. Which is why I find myself looking for little, cozy comforts to help the winter pass. Bread is one of those. Hot, fresh loaves straight out of the oven. Or buttered toast and honey in a pinch. It was the inspiration for this miniature bread basket, which is the new addition to the shop this week.

Miniature Bread Basket

An assortment of crusty breads in a cute, little basket. It even comes with a pot of honey. The mini Blythe friends wasted no time settling into this snack.

Lots of new goodies are coming to the shop soon. I plan to update the shop every week, possibly twice a week on Mondays and Fridays.

Season’s Greetings from the Dollhouse Bakery

Mini Blythe friends enjoy Christmas at the dollhouse bakery.The first day of winter brought in an especially chilly and foggy day yesterday. And today they expect snow flurries. A white Christmas perhaps?

I know updates have been a bit scarce this month as I took a little time out to spend with family and attend to holiday matters. But in-between baking real-life goodies, I’ve been crafting some new tiny treats that I hope to start adding to the shop after the new year.

The mini Blythe friends are enjoying their Christmas at the dollhouse bakery also. There’s so many yummy treats to choose from and perhaps even a few new ones that are soon to make it into the shop.

So another year has come and gone. It was only four months ago that I opened my Etsy shop and since then I’ve met so many wonderful people. I’ve really appreciated all the feedback and support and I hope to continue growing the shop and website over the coming year.

Happy Holidays! Merry Christmas! And wishing everyone the best in 2018!

Christmas is coming…

Mini Blythe was excited to start decorating the dollhouse for Christmas. So excited that she wasn’t sure what to do first. Bake cookies? Wrap presents? Decorate the tree?

Decorating the Dollhouse for Christmas

She tried to do everything at once, but after getting tangled up in a garland and losing her shoe somewhere, her friend reminded her to slow down and savor the season. And also, have a peppermint stick.

There’s still a few¬† Christmas candy bowls and mugs of hot chocolate left in the shop. But if you plan on ordering for Christmas, try to do so by December 11 to ensure it arrives on time, as the mail can be slow during the busy holiday season.
