Stocking my 1:6 kitchen with my new Sweetheart..

   Happy Saturday Y'all!! I am so happy to come and find you here, hoping to see something new..Well...sure! I love catching up on posts and others' blogs during the weekend mornings..Apple crumble muffins and strawberry croissant at the ready..fresh mug of hot, sugary tea with loads of milk to wash it down. No, I'm not a big fan of coffee, unless it has mint, hot chocolate and whipped cream in it AND comes from Tim Hortons. Lol! Enough about 1:1 treats though,  lets look at some new mini's!!

   First I gotta show you a new acquisition.  I have begun the slow and expensive task of stocking my 1:6 kitchen and pantry (I have..nothing..yet). My first pieces arrived yesterday from the amazingly talented lady Roxanne Fern.

Looks at this incredible work of art! She completely re-worked this piece; adding buttons and levers, cords, plugs and authentic labelling...

I just had to show you both sides. This is my favorite miniature EVER! I've never been happier with an order!! the blender. Those realistic cords are really cool...

..and look close! She even added tiny blades! Two of them! 

The last thing I ordered was these two pie plates! I adore these!!! I can hardly wait to make the pies for them. Mmmmm strawberry pie..hmmm apple!!! I can smell the rhubarb and cinnamon! Roxanne was so sweet she even included this Cupcake cookbook and recipe card! Everything came packaged beautifully and it was the fastest parcel order that I've ever gotten!! I am already saving for my next order. Please check out her blog:   or go take a peek at her Etsy by the same name. Be prepared to drool and covet!!

                                    So now it's time to introduce you to my new Sweetheart!

    May I please present.. Miss Harvin Meyer Hawn:

Couldn't those Honey-Hazel eyes just melt your soul? I think she is just simply beautiful. I really wanted a second doll (one is soooo lonely..) and had a Oriental doll in mind..but Harvin just spoke to me with that Golden mane and her pretty eyes..I had to have her! 
   I found that her curls did not hold well but I now know what to do! I have aluminum tubing that I cut into 1 - 2 cm pieces to use with bobby pins as curlers (you could also use straws of different sizes or ???. Shampoo and then use a small amount of detangler or conditioner on Barbies' hair. Pull up and into a ponytail.Secure with elastic. Curl and set the ponytail ends while damp..then ..holding the doll upside down; run just boiled water over the entire head of hair. Once it has been totally soaked in the hot water, remove the hot water and now pour ice water over the hair..adjust any loose pieces and let it cool leave her overnight (10-15 hrs) if you can. In the morning remove the curlers and style! Spritz with any hair spray afterwards and style like usual.

The first thing I made her was a couple of mini books. She is wickedly smart and vivacious and she can't just sit around and do nothing  while I style her hair, so I craft her objects to use and interact with. Let me tell you more about my gal:

 26 years old.
 She a Big-Rich-Golden-Dream-Blonde-Boss-lady with a razor sharp tongue, wits to match and a heart of solid gold (18Kt white gold that is..) Harvin enjoys reading.. everything, stinging hot bubble baths with silky bath bombs and melts, cheesecake of any taste or type and of course sleeping late on Sundays. Chanel is her church and shoes are her passion (nude platforms her staple). Modern Dance and ballet has been a focal point since the moment she could stand in first position and it has carried her over into a Cheerleading career with the Atlanta Falcons. She has been on the team for almost three years but she is thinking farther ahead. Having come from a family of high social standing and extreme privilege, Harvin learned early on how to maintain a strong work ethic and positive demeanor. Always the first to volunteer her time, Harvin refuses to rest on her laurels and instead foresees a future in philanthropy and charity works. Some of her favorite things are: steak and lobster dinners, anything pink, cute boys and burlesque shows. She adores her Shih Tzu mix Root-Beer and treasures time spent with Rowan V. Dracco, her best girl friend. Harvin collects Elephants, daydreams about love and detests mean spirited people.

Harvin is having a sweet treat while she shares her paper-dolls with  Dolly and Raggedy-Ann.

She's not sure which outfit she wants to outfit her paper-doll in... so many fabulous pieces to choose from. All Louie Vuitton of course!

Oh Awesome..Rowan has decided to join in..every girl loves paper-dolls!!

These are the last of Harvins' childhood toys. She can't bear to let them go....

Strawberry angel food cake cupcakes with raspberry jam filling and whipped vanilla frosting. A strawberry for the pallet and then some milk to finish it off! Oh yum it's so fresh!! Can you smell the tart and tangy raspberry sauce?

Chocolate toffee shortbread hearts, salted caramel cocoa cookies and thick'n'chewy mini brownie chunks. Where did that milk go..?

Well that's all for now my wonderful mini friends! I sincerely hope you saw something you liked. I have a number of projects almost ready for pics but not in time for this post so y'all will have to wait for the next! It won't be so long inbetween though...

Hey before I go..could y'all help me out a little here? I am working on a few pieces in preparation for opening an Etsy shop. For one, I am filling a cabinet and I'd love everyones' opinion:

So:  Do y'all think the screening  on each side obstructs the view inside the cabinet too much? Should I just use the plain glass? The middle door will be all 'glass' no matter what sides I choose..just need to know if people like this look..obviously it has not yet been painted, finished or filled. Just thought I'd ask for a basic opinion to help me decide. What do ya think? Screen or plain glass? (The piece will be painted white once finished.) 

It hasn't been glued in..just another view..

PLEASE leave me a comment and FOLLOW! I read every single one and try to always answer back! I love questions and advice! I also take custom orders and do special requests..all you have to do is ask.. Almost everything on this blog can be sold or re-made for sale. Just send me an email with your wish:
THANK YOU so very very much for joining me today! Please enjoy the rest of your weekend - Make the most of it..or spend it all in bed!! Just do you. Okay? (Okay...I'm getting into my pj's right now! Tee Hee!) Nothing like some cotton sheets and a really great book! I am reading "The Host" and it's phenom!! Read the book THEN see the me it's better that way! 

Much love and kisses too! xo

    on 17th Ave. This scene, very similar to a scene in the original 'Tron,' makes you realize
    the importance of 'Users. It seems like that must have come with an enormous amount of pressure.
