Miniatures

This collection is dedicated to my Mom, Carolyn, who, in the 80's and 90's was a miniature enthusiast. She created beautiful shadow boxes, whimsical handmade dolls with hand stitched clothing, and she constructed doll houses and furniture.  She won several awards with the Whaling City Miniature Enthusiasts Club.  These are just a few of the little things.

Broderie Tablecloth


Vintage Broderie Tablecloths are highly sought after by collectors.  This Red White and Blue cloth was made during the 1930s, and I thought it would be perfect to show this 4th of July.

Baby Caroline

This pretty little porcelain doll is named Caroline and she was handmade by my Grandmother. The vintage hanky bonnet was given to me by my Mother-in-Law when my first child was born. The dress is also vintage and the poinsettia dresser scarf was hand embroidered many years ago by someone I do not know. I treasure hand embroidery, babies, vintage linens and my dearest Grandmother.
