a mini story

  • I have a series of crafts that I cannot wait to share with you guys. For one of these projects, I require the use of plastic toy farm animals. I got a set from a local mall and when I opened the packaging at home, I got this tiny surprise.
  • He ran straight to my miniature sewing room. He looks quite at home so I’ll let him stay; I have many other animals to choose from for my project.
  • The boyfriend and I had a discussion this morning about whether this little guy truly is a cat. He looks like a Siamese-tabby mix, doesn’t he? Or a monkey-cat.

  • During the same mall trip, the boyfriend picked up paintbrushes. Stashed in a glass jar near the acrylic paint counters were these miniature measuring tapes.
  • I simply had to buy the teapot one. It was kismet.

  • You know the single great thing about a mall that’s undergoing renovation? They do lots of sales.
  • I got this plain mini Micky Mouse for a little over $2. It’s the kind that you paint or design yourself.


Which leads us to the question of the day: Would I ever stop buying things simply because they’re cute? If you answered NO, you’re correct.

lucky, still

Because there is nothing like receiving sweet gifts during a truly crappy week.

Something my sister painted for me:

(Dear sister, I love this painting. It calms me. I shall hang it in my office because I don’t want to share it with the world. Also, I am glad that you’re painting again. I took up ¬†drawing as a kid because you were so good at it. Who knows, I might follow in your footsteps once more now that we’re already adults.)

Miniature lovelies and stickers from Krissy:

(Dear Krissy, these mini treats are as sweet as you. They look perfect in the Alcott Study, don’t they?)

And this solar lamp and funny book from Chin, Slayer of Krakens:

(Dear Mistress Kraken-Slayer, Uzi LOOOOVES the lamp. Did I tell you that he’s obsessed with all things illumination? The book is very funny and precious, too. Thank you.)
