Special Gifts from Kim Saulter and a Mini Rug

So Excited!!!

I received the most exciting package in the mail today! Kim Saulter, a miniature artisan whose blog, It's a Miniature Life, you can find in my blog links and you can purchase her exquisite creations at CDHM, Custom Dollhouses and Miniatures where I 'met' her in the forums.

For Joanna's dollhouse Santa is bringing, Kim sent two little shabby chic 'aged' chairs, a precious little oval table with metal scrollwork legs with a sweet bouquet and a decorative china plate. The baking table as you can plainly see, is pink, Joanna's favorite color, and has a wealth of goodies in the midst of preparation--a cake, cookies, cupcakes and a beautiful cabbage rose bouquet, a mixer with frosting on the mixers and a Betty Crocker cookbook! I want to shrink and live in the house where these sweet, feminine little pieces will reside. As a bonus, she even sent two pieces of cake on two little saucers! I can't even begin to thank her enough. Now, what am I good enough at to reciprocate with??? Darnit, nothing, actually. I am working on it but Kim, you'll have to wait a while!

And above (one day I'll figure out how to load photos so that the one I want last is last) is a punch needle rug I just completed. I used the pattern Meadow Bouquet by Acorn Quilt and Gift Company using a Cameo punch needle. Jerry says it is too large and the pile is too thick. (Seems his Martha Stewart-like cullinary and decorating talents extend to the minute in size as well) and I was glad to find that Cameo now makes a micro needle for even smaller loops and lower piles. Maybe Kim would like a punch needle rug???!!
