Memories of a Summer Cabinet

Summers with my grandmother at the lake cabin is where I spent weeks on end as a child.  Her cabinets would be full of all of the goodies that she knew that my sister and brother, and I loved.  To this day I still love the look of an old clapboard cupboard as it reminds me of that cabinet at the lake from my childhood filled with special treats, favorite mugs, pink lemonade in long forgotten vintage bottles and beautiful tiny details utilized to pull it all together.  This cabinet captures all that my summers at the lake with my grandmother meant to me. If I could have my grandmother over for tea in my miniature world, this is where we would find the mugs...

This post is dedicated to my late grandmother and to all of the grandmothers out there who make a day or a summer in the life a child so very special...

Summer Cabinet

This week I worked on a cabinet inspired by all of the wonderful things that summer brings.  As always, the cabinet was based on something that my grandmother would have had in her summer kitchen, right down to the colander filled with fresh vegetables from her garden and eggs gathered each morning from the hen house.   Have a great weekend everyone.

The colander is by Susi at MiniEdenTienda, and the strawberry pie was made by Karen at MerciaMiniatures

Custom Tea Towel Sets with Large Kitchen Utensils

Who doesn't love beautiful new things for their kitchen? I love to browse through stores that carry pretty tea towels, utensils and other items for a kitchen.  So when a previous customer contacted me to custom design sets of tea towels and kitchen utensils to match her existing collection I was honored and excited.  I think the sets look similar to those that you would find in a shop selling linens and kitchen items.  And the best part is that the towels sets are reversible - so you get a different look on either side. I hope that you like them.  Enjoy the little things in your day everybody...

Oil and Vinegar Sets

There is nothing like the fruity taste of a wonderfully aromatic extra virgin olive oil and the sweet taste of a perfectly aged balsamic vinegar to accompany it.  And of course you must have fresh ground pepper from a pepper mill. I hope that you like looking through these sets as much as I enjoyed creating them. Have a great week everybody.
