Miniature passions of late...

Hello friends! It's been awhile! I am testing out the new iPad Blogger app and I have no idea how this will end up looking when I hit "publish"?! But I did my last post in the new format on blogger and I didn't like the layout choices or glitches, so I'm giving this a try instead. It doesn't seem to have many options, so again, be patient with me as I find a way to blog the "old" way I was comfortable with :).

So much has gone on this month, the first being the very devastating hurricane that went through our area. Hurricane Sandy was horrible and as I type this people are still without power and their lives are upside down. I feel pretty lucky considering we just lost power for 3 days and didn't have the damage that others around us did. So I'm counting my blessings and praying for those still recovering or going through the effects of this!! My heart goes out to them!!

In my mini world I am currently working on a new kitchen. It's going to be a very stylish kitchen set in a charming luxury Paris apartment! Right out of my little Paris dreams :). The other photos here (since I have no idea what order they'll come out in being that this is my first iPad attempt at posting) are either new designs that I made for my Etsy store, or new items that I'm designing. I've made a couple acrylic chopping boards, new bakery tables, baked lots of new minis, and even put together a little collage of photos that I'm using as my inspiration board for the Paris Kitchen. The gorgeous parasol umbrellas are from my dear friend Maritza Moran! Her talents never cease to amaze me and I'm so honored to call her my friend!! Aren't they fabulous? :)I have also included some photos (collage) of the appliances I'll be using in my new kitchen. I LOVE glass door refrigerators and large 8 burner french ranges, so Elizabeth from Elf miniatures was kind enough to work with me on designing the appliances I wanted to use! I love Elf miniatures, if you haven't visited them, it's a mini must! :)

Ok we'll it's back to work for me, I hope this comes out somewhat ok, or ill be hitting the delete button and trying again :)! Wishing you all a wonderful week ahead and many many blessings!!

Love and Hugs! Cyn xo
Hmmm, ok , now I've seen what I posted, again, the pictures all uploaded out of order! Darn, I am going to have to work on this. I am not sure how I like the new blogger, but when I get a few minutes ( or hours lol ) I will make it a point to sit down and try and correct this! If anyone has tips with this new blogger format , in the case of picture order, please feel free to add advice in your comments! I'm so sorry you have to view this little mess! Hugs and Thank you for your patience!! :) Mine is wearing thin!! xoxo!
