Week 23! Weddings, Walking and Miniatures!

Week 23 is here already! Week 22 quickly passed on by me and ended with a beautiful wedding.  Today I received an invitation to another wedding.  Great inspiration for wedding gowns. 

Walking is going downhill.  Yes, it should be going uphill, but I'm working on it. 

Grandsons were here for a surprise visit last week for a couple of days and we had tons of fun.  Still can't believe I have two of them.

Dollhouse Miniature suit to the right is one of my latest Jared Collection.  I thank God for this creative talent of making miniatures and for giving me this opportunity to share what I do with you.

Week 21 Awesome Walking Wedding Miniature Suit

Week 21!  Time is flying and I am feeling great, well mostly.  I will be missing my annual Family Reunion, but it is awesome that I will attend a real wedding this Saturday!  I have made lots of miniature wedding dresses and gowns, but a real wedding is like a treat.  This will be my first since my favorite daughter got married five and a half years ago.

Had an awesome walking experience on Monday.  Was hiking up the mountain with my husband when we met two hikers who were coming back from the "mines" and insisted that we take the trail to the mines and we did.  One of the hikers reached into her backpack and took out a yellow "note it" pad and gave it to us to stick to rocks and trees on our way in to help guide us on our way out!  Whew!  It was an adventure although we didn't quite make it to the mines because when the trail got smaller and smaller and the trees looked like giants looming overhead and I couldn't see the sky, I was so scared I wanted to turn back and we did.

Suit in above picture was made by me.  This is the size of most of my dollhouse miniature clothes at one inch to one foot scale.  Therefore, when I make a little girl's dress like the cute one in the picture it is about half this size.  Yes, they are small and fun to make.

As always, thanks to all of you for reading my blog and sending encouraging e-mails.  I couldn't do this without you.  Love to all.
