Got some mail

I LOVE getting mail =) email is fun, but regular mail is just wonderful! And when it contains miniatures, it's the best!!!

Awhile ago I could not resist these miniatures.. so I bought them on FB.. (I think the balloons, which are too cute, are Re-ment, they should be in a box..) And the toy monkey is so very cute, but it was broken when I got it =( But I've glued it together again.


Didn't think I was going to save the teddy bear, but... I get too attached to things, quickly.. so the bear just run into my house before I could think of selling him..
Here he is, hiding behind and cuddling with one of my own bears..
But I guess Birgit agrees with me, one can never have too many bears.. ;)

Have no idea were this monkey originally came from, but he is really cute!!

Then I got a consultation prize in a guessing contest on FB, and the woman who held the competition knew I like fabrics, and retro patterns, so she sent me some retro fabrics. Lovely! Now I just need to collect enough courage to cut into them and make something out of them.. I always spend a great deal of time not knowing what to do, how to, and if I really should cut a lovely fabric like that...


I also got the last issue of Miniatyrvärlden, the one and only miniature magazine in Sweden. And guess what, I saw my name in it =) But it shouldn't have been there.. It was a picture of Anna's miniature houses, and it said that it was from Hanna and Annas miniatyrer. (First of all I spell my name with an extra h, most swedes don't, but I do =) ) and second of all Anna and I shared a table, but we didn't sell together, we just shared the space =) and Anna has miniatures, the English word for miniatyrer.. and it was Anna's houses, so my name shouldn't even be there.. but it was nice to see it ;)
Anna's mini-Lundby-houses are wonderful, I got one myself, you can see one of her houses in this post: http://hannahsminiatyrer.blogspot.se/2014/04/stockholms-miniatyrmassa-april-2014.html
or at her blog: http://www.annasminiatures.blogspot.se/2013/12/mini-lundby-house.html

And I also bought some books from a FB group (I love how there are lots of FB groups about miniatures) I bought 1 book and 2 magazines. (I will write more about the book later)

And then a very nice lady got lots of watchmaker stuff, glass and pointers. And she wanted to share with all who wanted something, and I asked for some glass (for tables) and some pointers, for candlesticks. Just needed to pay the postage, a great deal =)


Then I bought a glass cabinet, I have longed for this a long while, and finally I got it at a great price, on FB. I'm thinking of repainting it. Maybe green, blue or some other bright colour?! I'll think about that.

And when I went to a flee-market to buy some new dresses for my little girl (she loves dresses) I found these cute animals. My little girl got a few, the rest I kept for myself =)

I thought they could look good in a dollhouse..
I think I was right =)


I've been on a shopping spree... have to stop that now. We have very little space at home.. and I earn 0kr a month.. so I shouldn't go around spending money like this... But I LOVE shopping =) and I did sell a few things, some collectable items and miniatures, so I felt like I could spend that money, right away =)

Before I ended my shopping spree I did order a hand mixer too, looked several times, and then when I got just enough money, I spent it all on this wonderful thing =)
Her blog: http://minifanaberia.blogspot.se and the Etsy shop: https://www.etsy.com/se-en/listing/202858666/miniature-hand-mixer-with-removable?ref=related-4

  It's wonderful and you can even remove the beaters and the dough hooks!
I got a little gift too, a sign =)


The miniature next to my real one =)


I have gotten so many great mails lately, I'll have to stop buying things now.. but it was fun while it lasted ;)
 Take care
Hannah

  2. You were right - I totally agree that one can not have enough bears! *grin* You've made some lovely purchases - lots of stuff to have fun with. Enjoy! I really like your fleamarket find - these little fellas are perfect as toys.

  3. How wonderful to fulfill some miniature dreams!! I adore the new bear, he looks like a vintage Steiff, he has lived almost a century maybe, and seen a lot of history and is happy now to find himself in such a peaceful and loving home. The mixer is awesome, I'm so happy you could afford it! Lovely gifts also,you will make some unique creations with them.

  5. Great buys, Hannah! Sometimes it is so fun to go on a little shopping spree, isn't it? ;-) I especially love the bunny balloon! And that mini mixer is a treasure! Thanks for sharing all of your fun with us! xo Jennifer

    1. Thanks Jennifer! It really is fun, but I can't make it a habit ;)
      I really like the bunny balloon too, it really looks like a balloon, an expensive one, like the ones I almost never got when I was a kid =) (I remember getting two helium balloons as a kid, and I saved them for years, even when the air had run out, I found them in an old toy-box at my mums house only recently =) )

  8. Hi Hannah! I think it is good to spoil oneself sometimes, isn't it ;o? You have bought some nice additions for your dolls house. Maybe you'll be inspired for making some new miniatures of your own hand now? Enjoy it all!
    Have a nice Sunday/week!
    Hugs, Ilona

    1. I'm getting very good at spoiling myself lately, maybe a bit too good ;)
      I really hope this will inspire me to make more things now, I hope to work a little on my kitchen soon, but I always find an excuse not to..
      Thanks Ilona, the same to you!

    1. Thanks Jane! Scenes.. hm.. I really wish I was better at that, I'm really great at collecting stuff, but then I have no clue how to make them into a nice scene.. But I'll work on it =)

  10. Those are awesome! I like the Lundby dollhouses too! Their design are so neat and well-done! And yay for splurging on oneself! We only have one life to live so make the best out of it :) By the way, I would like to ask what Ever After High doll were you interested in? I saw your comment on my post and thought I could ask you here so you would get my question right away. Those dolls are on sale now and I could get them for cheap. Let me know if there is a model you like better than other.

    1. Hi Jane!
      I answered on your blog too =) That I love the Madeline Hatter and Dexter Charming doll, I saw them just now on Amazon, so mush cheaper than here in Sweden.. was that the sale you were thinking of??
      I'm so tempted on buying them.. But I have bought so many things already.. and I have so little space.. but they are soooo cute =) The more I look the more favourites I get.. =)

  11. Hi Hannah! :)
    I also agree with you.. One can never have too many bears!
    Great supplies! And what a mixer!!! Surely you can make real dough with it. :)

    1. Thanks Piikko, I'm so glad you agree too, I think my house will be filled with bears in the end =)
      I hope the mixer will help me bake a lot of tasty food for the refrigerator I haven't built for the house yet =)

  13. Isn't shopping so much fun? Especially when it's mini shopping! You got so many awesome purchases! I can't wait to see what you do with some of the items. The Re-ment balloons are super cute! I love Re-ment; wish it was more 1:12 size though. The mixer is terrific; especially next to your real-life one. They look so similar! :)

    1. Thanks Lindsey! Shopping is too much fun, I could do it all day long =) I love Re-ment too, but it's a little tricky to get a hold on them I think, haven't seen any store selling Re-ment in Sweden, but every now and then I see them online and I have a hard time not buying them all =) (And yes, some of the things looks very big.. wish them were 1:12 scale, but some stuff works great anyway =) )
