This is one of the gifts Miri-yum-yum got for her birthday from Grandma. I made the little sleeping bag, but the doll I already had from somewhere. I thought it turned out pretty cute.

Adorable doll with her sleeping sack. Nice that it looks safe for a small child.

Thank you all for your comments. It was quite easy to make but I just thought it was perfect for a one year old. I think I am the only one who buys her dolls.

We also sent her a little rocker that she loves, but I didn't make that. Laughing

Well this isn't exactly a talent, more like a hobby. It is also not the best picture, but will show some of my miniature tea sets.



The largest set in the middle I got at the Portland Rose Gardens. It was the most expensive, but I love it. The others are a mix of values. I also have a collection of just tea cups and saucers. Some day I will post those.

Hi misspotter,

What lovely teacups and sets!!! Your pink rose is beautiful. I think the one with strawberries (?) is cute but I can't see the details too well.

Thanks, MMD. I think they are fun and beautiful. I think I will try to get a close up picture of each set...or at least some of them. I love the teddy bear ones. I love you

I also have some regular tea cups and some small pitchers.







This is a miniature pitcher and saucer made from the ash from Mt. St. Helens volcano.

Thanks, Karentia, Weesa and Always. They are fun to collect and play with at times. When Miri-yum-yum gets a few years older, we will take them out and play with them.

They just make me happy. I love you

missypotter,I missed this first time out! What a great collection. I love miniatures but didn't care to start collecting...I have enough clutter without adding tiny bits.
I love looking online for miniatures...the crafting is amazing!

I can imagine wonderful tea parties with Miss Yum...

Was there any reason why you started collecting tea sets?

I have a full size cocoa set hand painted by my grandmother almost a 100 years ago. Over the years some chipping has lowered the antique value but the sentimental is still there. I keep it packed away now,safe from cats.

thanks for sharing your collection.

Thanks Maxecat. I agree the sentimental collections are more important than anything. Most of mine are not particularly costly, but just things I liked. Not sure why I started collecting the tea sets, I just like minatures and I just loved the tea sets.

Some of my pitchers were mine or hubby's family treasures. Others like the Mt. St. Helen's ash one is just because I live up here. Same thing as the one I got from the Rose Gardens in Portland.

Anyway, it is nice others don't think you are crazy. Laughing

One of my nephews used to collect and ball up little bits of material he'd pick from his stuffed bunny and save them in a glass jar...one that no one could touch.

Not to judge too harshly ('cause he's ok now) but I think that was a tiny bit crazy. Laughing Laughing Laughing

So I was just getting ready to put away my Easter Village for the season and thought I would post some pictures here.



Again not a craft, but a collection. I would love the Grandkids to get to see/play with these.





Apparently I really have a "thing" for miniatures. I also have a Christmas Village that goes up at Christmas.

Adorable! Hey, I really have a thing for minis too. Especially mini tools that work. I've always wanted to craft a victorian doll house, but never got the right space to make it in... yet.

Too cute! When I was a kid I would have gone crazy for a set like this. My Nana wasn't into collecting things. Sad

I love looking at your hobbies,missypotter. All the cute details and none of the temptations for the kitties.

Flowers

Post  missypotter on Sun Jul 28, 2013 12:38 am

I took some pictures of some of my flowers this year. For some reason there wasn't as many as usual, but these turned out pretty well.

These lilies turned into different colors this year...not sure why. scratch 





Other lilies...
