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 ;)
