Crabtree and Evelyn

I have notice that lots of bloggers have been buying up these lovely Crabtree and Evelyn kits and why not, they are sooo pretty. I have mine in a little cupboard I actually bought at Lea Frisoni's shop in Paris and was going to blog about it when I had decided what finish to put on it. Should I stain it?, paint it white?, cream perhaps...?
Nope, I just don't think I can bring myself to do anything to it, I kind of like it the way it is. Perhaps I will change my mind once the house is done and it is sitting in the bathroom.
Crabtree and Evelyn kits are available at

Edmonton miniature show

I attended the Edmonton miniature show this last weekend and although it certainly did not rival any of the wonderful shows I read about, it was lovely, small but lovely.
Here are a few of the goodies I managed to bring home with me including this tiny all bisque doll. You really have to see her to believe how wee she really is.
I am absolutely in love with the Staffordshire dogs I was able to obtain. I have a set sitting on my fireplace at home which I spotting in Britian many years ago and were sent over by my Aunt some months later as a wedding present. So it is only fitting that the dolls house has a set as well.

Mini trip to Ladurees!!

Today is "National talk like a pirate day" in Canada, perhaps it is even international, I don't know. What I do know is that it is a bad day to work in the field of Ophthalmology when all you do all day is put people in eye patches and test their vision. I thought I would go around the twist before lunch with all the " Arrrs" I heard today. Luckily my wonderful postman managed to salvage the day with a little present in my mailbox for me to find after my weary slog home from work. A little of my beloved Ladurees in miniature! I had already acquired a few little treats from including my lovely little cupcakes and pastry which really do look good enough to eat!! So to add to my lovely little collection I bought a wonderful little precious gift set from Oiseau deNim on Etsy. Everything is soooo pretty and wonderfully scaled! I can't tell you how please I am and can't wait to have my little house ready to decorate with all these pretty things.
