Today I made these grilled chicken on skewers from polymer clay, for my shop.

The scale works for any 18″ doll, or larger ball jointed dolls.

As a thank you to my small (but much appreciated) following, I thought I’d do my first give – away!! The prize consists of 2 grilled chicken skewers, made to order, in either 1:6 or 1:3 scale…whichever you choose! The winner will be announced this Sunday, June 26th, after a name is randomly drawn.

A Parcel of Goodies

I was out of province for the past week, spending time with my eldest daughter, who had a tonsillectomy.

When I returned home I was happily tackled by 3 little ones, my husband, and our fur baby, Lenny.

And…as an added bonus, a parcel from Italy was waiting for me too!

I had to share my joy and these lovely dollhouse items with you, superbly crafted by a fellow Etsy seller, ‘Mondina Dollhouse‘.

I am not being compensated, nor was I asked to blog about this…this is just a well deserved shout-out.  She (Raimonda) makes beautiful textiles in dollhouse scale. She also sells some furniture and little tid bits, but it was her textiles that caught my eye.

I’ve been longing to buy from Raimonda’s shop, but waited until my dollhouse was closer to completion. I can’t wait until it’s time to start feathering the nest!

This beautiful cushion has this image printed on both sides!

Her style is definitely romantic, even precious. Some of her stuff I’d call shabby chic, some can also fit in contemporary doll houses. If you have a chance, check out her pillows and linens. They are lovely!

When I am ready to decorate, I will share a source list and some of my other great finds with you.
