What's Cookin' Good Lookin'?

Fall has finally arrived out here in the desert. It is going to be the coldest Halloween on record since 1978. We will be below freezing in the early hours.  I was 9 years old in 1978, so I'm pretty sure I was out trick-or-treating then....Ah, the good old days.

Here is a treat for you all. Meet Agatha. I made her for a contest on the MDL. I had to design a dress for a witch from a selection of distressed fabric. I'm not much of a fan of scary or evil things, so I made her a kitchen witch. Her presence in the kitchen is said to bring good luck and to prevent kitchen disasters. I made her a souped up purple stove out of the Chyrsbon stove kit. Any way, I hope you enjoy looking around her kitchen.


I think she is pretty





Happy Fall!

  1. Brrrrr! It's supposed to dip below freezing in northern California, too. I like your kitchen witch! What a great idea for a fitting but non-scary entry. You've given her a suitably witchy costume without going to the dark side. The hat is especially delightful. The purple stove is perfect, as is the potions cookbook. Fingers crossed for you!!

  2. It may be cold outside, but Agatha’s kitchen looks warm and cozy. I agree, she looks pretty in her new purple dress and fancy hat. Nice attention to detail.

  3. Great job Carrie. Yours was one both my hubby and I liked. There were so many to choose from. I'm not a fan of scary either. I'll need to get me some character blanks for future doll making. I love the scene you made. Did you paint her face too?

    1. Hello there. I bought her off of eBay with her face painted. There was some great competition in the contest. It so fun to see everyone's entries.

  4. It must have been a lot of fun for you to outfit this doll, and to design her kitchen!
    I wonder what she's got boiling on that great looking stove- maybe it's creamy Pumpkin Soup- YUM!

Paper Clay Bricks, Quick and Easy.

I thought I'd share a fast and easy way to make rustic bricks.        Ah, the mysteries of paper clay......I was very intimidated by all the lovely paper clay stone, bricks, and roofing I have seen.  I saw Rik Pierce at the Seattle mini show and thought about asking for his autograph.....I bought his book Techniques by Rik Piercelong before I attempted any paper clay work.

     I bought this kit, which really is just a shell, not a complete kit, off of eBay some time ago. I decided to use it for a project we were doing for the Mini-Doll list. The project is a virtual town named Rose Creek based in the late 1890's. You get to make up your own character, and his/her backstory.....My Character, Sage Brush Sally, lives in a home in need of some repair...Here is the link for the project's information. https://www.danaburton.com/rose-creek-frontier-town

     First, tear off a hunk of the clay and then put the rest back in the package. Try to keep the unused clay sealed, as…

Puppenstuebchen Easy Kit Review

I mentioned in my last post that I would do a review of one of the kits I bought at the Dallas Miniature show. I chose to do The Romantic Country Style Cabinet as it looked to be the least complicated of the three I purchased.
I also bought the buffet and the kitchen sink kits as well. When I first opened the kit and saw the components I felt a bit overwhelmed. (Normal reaction for me) The kits are made of laser cut Masonite/hardboard. Can I just say, I love the wood aroma from laser cut kits....that might be a bit of an over share, but hey it is the little things in life that make me kooky happy.



There some things you have to get used to when doing one of these kits. The directions are in German and English. They take a little bit to get used to, and have a few of those funny translation variations that are humorous. They have very good pictures, but not every picture has English translations.The kit comes with a piece of sand paper that you super glue to matching piece of hardboardT…

Adventures in Dallas.....

I haven't posted in a month or so as my sweet husband underwent cardiac bypass surgery quite unexpectedly. In late May, he went in for a stent placement during a routine angiogram  and was told it was impossible to place the stent. He  was admitted to the hospital and informed leaving was out of the question as he probably was close to an arrest.  The blockages were so severe he probably would not have survived should he have arrested!! I was almost a widow.....Praise God, he had surgery the next day, and everything went off without a single hitch! Amen! He is already back at work and recovering nicely.

I had been planning a trip to the Dallas Miniature show with my mini-friend Colleen,.. It was a much needed getaway for me and I was so happy to attend. I took a stained glass window class with Barb Sabia and a Lady Slipper Orchid class with Karl Blindheim. Both classes were outstanding.




Then I got to  shop and shop. The lady from Miniature Luxuries was there with her gorgeous fa…
