I love your blog! Very nifty and everything's wonderful to look at...I'm working on my old childhood dollhouse and see that yours is looking a lot like mine...same color scheme...mine's old though. Anyway, thought you'd like this website for inspiration, if you haven't seen it already it is www.dollhousesbyliz.com. Do you mind if I borrow your idea for window valances, HOW CUTE! Blessings! Ashley

me: thanks so much for the link Ashley, what an awesome site! my window valances were made from the window boxes provided in the kit. i just turned them upside down and covered them with paper.


Love the tea towel! I just finished my first Raggedy Ann towel from the pattern I bought from your shop. She is very cute! Thanks so much.


The dollhouse bakery looks charming! Can't wait to see it all done and filled with Grace's goodies! I love the tea towel - I've already placed my order for the patterns!! So cute!


Vicki how I love you. Your blog is alwasy so comfy like quilting in front of the fire in september. *sigh*. This post in particular. Love the embroidery towel and the bakery is looking good.

Can't wait for more updates

that recipie towel is the cutest!


That towel is adorable!!

WOW! The bakery is starting to take shape.


Here too, we're already smelling the autumn. We went to the mountain to take apples in the trees, and now that I've seen your recipe, I think I'm going to try it.
The embroidery is really nice! And the bakery: waow, I'm going to show it to my daughter!


Mmmmm... applesauce!! I'm eagerly awaiting the ripening of local apples so I can make my applesauce.
Can't wait to see your little bakery when it's finished! How fun!


I truly enjoy your site. We are feeling fall in the air here too. (Leaves fall from trees and Picking apples at the orchard next week!!)
Thank you for your apple sauce embroidery towel and definitely will be ordering the transfers. It brings back memories of my grandmother. I learned all forms of needle craft from her, and I want to carry on the tradition for my girls too.

You're the best.


I read a couple blogs on an almost daily basis, another 10 that i stop in occasionally and i have just recently come across yours. I can't remember how i came about it but i'm sooo pleased i did. I just wanted to come in and congratulate you on the most 'beatiful' blog!! Your blog is always such a calming place to be, and one that reminds me of the importance of taking time for simple pleasures and pretty things!!


Lovely post this morning. I wish I was feeling a little more fall around here, still expect hot weather. I'll have to enjoy hearing about fall from everyone else.


Fall is definitely in the air, and I have also noticed the chirping of the crickets~especially one which made it into the house recently. Love the embroidered recipe towel...just beautiful!


OH Vicki, The recipe is perfect timing. We have a tree that is in its red fullness and they are a perfect sauce apple, as they dissolve right down within just a couple minutes of being in a hot skillet. I hope to get a few jars of applesauce put away for the winter months. Have you tried that recipe, if so what do you think or do you have a recipe that you wouldn't mind sharing?

me: Applesauce is probably one of the easiest things to make, you can add the sugar and spices or leave it plain. Or add lots of cinnamon and cook it down a bit longer and you have apple butter. The recipe on the towel is good for a small batch. When I make it I use a couple dozen apples at a time. But basically it's the same recipe.


Wow ive been missing all this cuteness over here!! Lovely tea towel, and miniture treasures! IT must feel like Christmas opening all those pretties!!


Another fan of your blog. It's just so cute and fun to visit here.


How sweet is that? VERY sweet!
