Cozy Bed

The nights are starting to draw in and the leaves are turning. It was quite cool in my part of Canada today. The perfect day to start thinking about autumn and dressing a cozy bed for the dollhouse. The house itself has been on hiatus for the better part of the summer but will be back front and center on my things to do list in a few short weeks and I will try in ernest to get the house itself done by Christmas. If last winter was any indicator I will have lots of snowing Sundays to dedicate to it's construction.
My lovely little fireplace is by Hearth and Home miniatures in the UK. Unfortunately, the lights for the fires were misplaced and although I have managed to find replacements, the will not fit in the openings at the back of the fires. Back to ebay...

I spent a lovely weekend at the lake watching flying lesson as the little babies bird that inhabited our birdhouse took to flight. Unfortunately we forgot the camera or I could have shared.
These little jugs are what I made in between bird watching out on the deck in the lovely sunshine we are finally enjoying in Canada.
I got a little carried away perhaps? They are just so much fun to make!!
