~ Labors of Love ~

HI Everyone! Today is what I always call my first day of Fall, I know it's not official, but my youngest is off to 11th grade today... my sweet Melanie... and the first day of school is always my season marker :) So of course I'm going to share Fall inspired miniatures with you. It's a favorite time of year for so many and myself included! I love cozy days just like today... the cooler air, the delicious home baked scents, the warm colors and crispy evenings! It's just fabulous :) I'm a day late for a Labor Day post , but these were my labors of love last week .... I hope you are all having a wonderful day and taking time to light a little candle, have some tea, and pamper yourself with the goodness of home and cozy inspiration!

My new Butter Cream yellow Baking Hutch...

Filled with fresh baked golden brown sweetness and cherries...

{ I love the butter yellow with tiny red cherries} and an apple tart too :)


There's even a little bowl of bread dough rising in the cupboard...Just like mine :)




I also put together another cozy cottage piece last week... A baker's rack... filled with kitchen comfort foods and pretty accents...




And what Fall day would be complete without Deep Dish Apple Pie? ;)

Or cherry turnovers?

I found this sweet market basket at my local dollhouse shop, but I know I'll be making these myself in every color , they look super easy, so that's on to-do list :) I love this photo below and it gives me a good idea for my next girls night, luncheon or casual dinner party. Pretty pastries in a market basket, how cute?!

Thank you for stopping in and joining me for a few moments :) I am so appreciative of all your visits and friendship, they really mean the world to me!

I'm excited for the few more "free" hours I'll be gaining now that we adhere to some sort of schedule and the kids are back in school.... so my first objective is to get back to commenting and visiting you all, along with more mini making and getting my own home all ready for the change of seasons! I also have a little surprise coming up soon I cannot wait to tell you about, but for now , I have to keep hush. I know, I'm a tease, sorry :) But SOON!

Have a great week friends!

Hugs, Cynthia xo

Hi Cyn!

You were the one to inspire me to get into dollhouses. Every time I looked at all your sweet minis I knew I just had to have myself a house that one day I could put your pretties in there. You are truly a wonderful artist and by far I love your minis the most! :)
Hugs,
Shelly
