Mini Kitchen Yumminess!

I've been so smitten with all the baking that goes on in the Mini kitchens, I had to start collecting some of the darling items for Sweet Pea and Clover.

How cute are these?

Looks like someone is in there whipping up some yummy goodies, doesn't it?

I got the covered cake plate, pinky wink bowls, measuring spoons, rolling pin and cookie sheets.

Have a biscuit if you'll find the jams on the table. 
 Or, how about a sliver of cake?

Can't wait to receive a couple other kitchen minis I had to have, hope they come soon!

So excited!

Have a lovely weekend!

Sweet Pea and Clover mini kitchen

I want to thank all my new followers for visiting me and leaving such heartfelt comments and sweetness.  I love hearing from all of you!

Today I got the brilliant (okay, I think it's brilliant) idea to make little valance boxes for the windows...adding more pink and giving the kitchen more texture and detail.
Happy Dance as always....

Pleased as punch, I am! 

 Speaking of punch....have a little cup, it's sitting on the hutch across the room.  Sip as you peruse the newest additions to Sweet Pea and Clover.

 If you like, there is and abundance of food for the one goes hungry in MY's YUMMY!  

Have a slice of chocolate cake, if you like too.

I've had this little brown basket for ever....well, it was brown until I got a hold of the paint brush and gave it a quick white wash....much more Shabby Chic, don't you think?  Perfect for the silverware.

The little chair needed a sweet little skirt....done!

A back splash seemed needed to give this area a bit more interest.... silver paper seemed the answer.

So, I added the cute little valances...painted the basket for silverware.... a back splash...a skirt for the chair.....and tried to pull the entire kitchen together for a photo shoot. 
Hope you enjoyed....

It's such a pleasure sharing all my decorating, creating and mini making with all my blog friends.

Hope it inspires you to create....
as you have all inspired me so much.

Thank you all!

Mini Sweet Pea and Clover update

I've sat with my head in this little dollhouse for the last couple days.... working away!

Today, I'm only showing the kitchen side.
 Gotta keep the suspense happening.

Originally, pink was my choice...but, this blue wallpaper just called my name, it jumped off the shelf and into my hand. 

Sweet Pea and Clover is taking on it's own personality.

 I'm very happy with how it's turning out, we all know, there are always things that don't work out....or we have to change.
The curtains are giving me a challenge, still not what I want, problem is.... I don't know what that is. 
The doily will stay for now!
I didn't have enough of either floor, so..... I did a half and half kinda look, thinking it's pretty sweet!


I'm searching for a few more shabby chic accessories, so necessary (new minis are always necessary, aren't they?) to get the look I want.

More PINKY WINK... is a must!

Hope you've had fun!

Sweet Pea & Clover

Today *Sweet Pea & Clover* got it's first coat of paint and then a few decorator pieces added to figure out what the "look" will be.
OMG, I hope the furniture isn't sticking to the floor because I put it in before the paint was dry.
I do dumb things like that!

She's a kitchen/dining area....

It's going to be my only kitchen, I mean come on, how many kitchens do you need?

I keep moving things around from house to house trying to figure out "what's going on"..... I'm thinking I'm finally getting the picture.

 I finally know this is how it's going to be "for now".  See, I really don't know.  Moving and changing is my *MO* in the little world and the big world. 

I'm looking forward to gathering all my kitchen minis, new goodies, that I'm sure I'll make and buy to complete the look. 

Here's the outside front... not much yet...still thinking!, the stove won't live up in that storage area.  I don't know what will be up there, must think!

Painted the entire inside and out white..
.not sure how I'm going to decorate, I figured if I gave it a coat of white paint, that would take me some direction. 
Maybe Shabby Chic????

The floor is getting a faux finish...maybe a tile look????  Who knows!
Depends on my mood the day I do that project.

This of course is the eating area.... pull up a chair and park your butt!
Let's EAT!

This is my favorite part of the kitchen, so far.... I'm just in love with the hutch look against the wall paper......SWOON!

There will be upper cabinets....duh!  And, lot's more accessories. 
 Wait till you see how cute the pot rack is going to look with the copper pots and pans..... too cute.

Yes, I stole them from the other kitchen, I did......

Remember, I'm only going to have one kitchen in my mini world..... the last kitchen I made will be converted to a child's room....someday!!!

I'm trying to make sense of my dollhouses.... I was spreading things to thin... this way I'll have all my favorites in one room. 

Much better idea!

I'm so smitten with this wallpaper....the blue and pink makes my heart sing.

I have other wallpapers that I want to incorporate into the cabinets.... more work!

The little "chandy" turned out so sweet...more pink and blue.  It doesn't light up... but, it lights up my mini world just looking at it. 

It's just a start.... there is so much more to design and complete, but so far, I'm a happy girl. 
 It's turning out just as I hoped it would.

So far..... So good!

Hope you enjoyed the tour of my latest creation....
keep watching.....
there is so much more to come!

Have a lovely week.
