Pay It Forward, Surprises! & Dollhouses

I checked the mail today and guess what I found? A Pay It Forward surprise package from my friend Anna over at Sew Good Sew Far! She sent me this wonderful little pin cushion and made with fabric from one of my favorite fabric designers too, Amy Butler. Thank you so much Anna! It is greatly appreciated and much needed. :-)

I joined Pay It Forward at Anna's blog a couple of months ago but nobody chimed in on my post. So, I will offer it again now. The first 3 people who leave a comment and state "Pay It Forward" will receive a small gift from me to be sent some time in the next couple of months. In turn you continue the Pay It Forward goodness by giving a gift of kindness to someone else, they in turn give to someone else and the gift goes on. You can copy the picture above and add it to your post about Pay It Forward on your blog, if you don't have a blog find someone who would like to carry PIF on. Again, Please state that you want to "Pay It Forward" or "PIF" in your comment so I can tell the difference between those who are just commenting and those who would like to join Pay It Forward and give a gift to someone else. Please don't forget to leave a link to your blog or website or an e-mail if you do not have a site so I can get in contact with you.

Today was a double surprise of lovelies. I also got my first baby doll and dolly for my dollhouse. As some of you may know I am starting a dollhouse in a 1:12 scale to have in my sewing room. I really enjoy the little world of miniatures and dolls. I did not have a dollhouse when I was a little girl, so I will have one now. :-) I don't have a dollhouse yet but that's o.k. I will set it up on a shelf for now. I bought this little cutie from artist Beckie Holiday. She makes these beautiful dolls and their clothes. My purchase was of a 2" porcelain baby doll with jointed hands and legs, and a 1" porcelain frozen Charlotte. These are the most beautiful little baby dolls I have seen. They have such delicate features. I am so happy with my purchase that I plan to buy more from her. If you have a dollhouse or collect dolls you have to see her dolls here. Check back often she is always listing new dolls.

Since we are on the topic of dollhouses, does anyone know of any nice dollhouse swaps? I want so badly to join Club Little House but Amy over at Inspire Co. is not organizing a swap right now. If you hear of any please let me know. :-)

Oh, yes! I forgot to tell you about Turkey Feathers. It is a wonderful blog and She makes little bakery items for dollhouses. So guess what! I plan on buying some. :-) You can check out her etsy shop here. She also has the cutest little dollhouse bakery that you should check out here. Grace is the little baker. O.K. I think I remembered to tell you everything. Talk to you all later. :-)

I'd like to PIF!
I write a mystery series set in the world of dollhouses. "Murder in Miniature" came out a couple of weeks ago. I'd like to send a copy to the first person who requests one. Email me at or at my blog:
Now I'm going to etsy for baked goods!
