~ My COOKBOOK is finally here!! ~

Hello sweet friends! After months of working on my new cookbook for minis, it is finally finished and ready to be ordered! I cannot tell you what a joy it has been and how happy I am with it! It feels like I've been away from blogging and the rest of the world in my tiny cocoon, but I have to say it's great to be back and share all my favorite miniature recipes with YOU! I thought of you on every page and I hope it's everything you wished it to be and more! I had gotten so many requests to do tutorials so this was my way of doing a bunch of them all in one place! Plus, I added lots of inspiring pictures, scenes and kitchen love too! I hope you love it! There is a link to the cookbook on my side bar here to the right, so I'll hope you'll make it part of your collection! Or can click here: Cooking and Baking in the Miniature Cottage Kitchen.

 The company Blurb also offers it in PDF version, a beautiful Ipad and Ebook version!
Here's a tiny peek :)

If you've purchased my first book you know what a beautiful job they do in development and I am so happy with the final results this time too!!

 Here's another tiny peek at some recipes it features also, yummy Apple Pie! Just in time for a cozy Fall season ahead!

It also has miniature cake recipes, cupcakes and so many more! 

When you receive your copy, I'd love to know what you think, so please drop me a comment here or an email, because there's nothing more important to me that making YOU happy!Also, if you have any questions about ordering , please email me and I'll be happy to help you! This time, as a gift to my readers, I've provided my email address in the back of the book to act as a little help line for you if you need any other questions answered after reading the tutorials, so I hope that helps too! I want everyone to enjoy mini making and loving as much as I do!

Thank you for always being so supportive and such fabulous followers and friends! I love you all!

Here's to wishing you a wonderful, magical , and blessed week ahead!

Big Hugs and love,

~ Feeling Fall in Miniature ~

Happy almost Fall! ....I am feeling very fall-ish lately, {yes a made up word lol} I suppose as one season starts to end, I get excited for the next pretty quickly and Fall , is by far a fabulous one in my neck of the woods :). These photos and projects were all inspired with that feeling in mind. A gorgeous little Tuscan kitchen, a few farmhouse style hutches, kitchen vignettes and plenty of cozy food to get you in the mood for fall!

I was pretty busy this August so I didn't get to post much , but I'll be back to posting more often once school gets under way and the schedule returns to normal. Yippee :) Anyway, This fabulous kitchen set you all are seeing here is the Master works of Maritza Moran. I was honored to make the food , dessert items, and accessories for the beautiful set! This will be available at the Good Sam Miniature show in Calif. this October! I hope if you're in the area you will all come and see it in person. It was a pure joy to work with and the details and love put into this kitchen is instantly seen, her talents are amazing! My pictures don't even do it justice! Thank you Maritza for being an incredible friend and for giving me this wonderful opportunity! Love you!

Isn't it cozy , dreamy, elegant and stunning?!!

I have also been busy as a bee working on my cookbook, I am hoping to have it ready for release by late September , early October. So I'm giving you some sneak peeks at new kitchen vignettes that I have put together for the book and also some new miniatures that were made and sold in my Etsy shop this month.

I love farmhouse style and with the feelings of fall lingering around me, I created some warm and cozy pieces....

Put on some lovely music and enjoy....

*** There is no better time than fall, to fall back in love with the kitchen! ***

I do hope you enjoyed my little tour... Thank you for always coming and visiting!

I have one more link to share with you. This beautiful bowl {below} was created by Anita from Pottery by Anita on Etsy. I placed a special order of an entire set of these bowls, in such beautiful colors, deep reds, burnt oranges, and she has so many other colors too! You'll love how the earth-tones and hand made bowls she makes on a miniature potters wheel have such a natural and beautiful quality! Thank you Anita, you're such a sweetie!

Well it's off to do some miniature canning today! New Jams, fruits and veggies! I love canning, in real life and in miniature it's even sweeter , and less messy too :) Have a fabulous week ahead friends!

Hugs, thanks and Love,

Cynthia xo
