25  A Tiny Tea Room in CHALLENGE 112 ENTRIES by MissingWillow on: March 04, 2016 08:00:46 AM
I had a small box and was inspired to turn it into a tea room, complete with a pretty little pink floral tea set and the perfect sentiment, "Where there is tea there is love".

Extra cups hang from hooks on the wall.  I constructed the cake stand from a metal bead and a stamped metal embellishment.  The cake is molded from paper clay and dusted with glitter 'sugar'.  The lemon slices are nail decor and the sugar cubes were made from polymer clay. 

This project has inspired me to make a series of miniature tea rooms.   Smiley

26  Re: IYP 28 - Winter Wing Ding GALLERY!! in The Swap Gallery by MissingWillow on: March 03, 2016 08:06:20 AM
My package arrived from alwaysinmyroom and boy did she spoil me with the most perfect, personal, epic, overthetop, spoilery package ever!  She selected the best theme for me... sheeps! 

Our swap started with her asking me if she could make me a plum scarf.  Um...yes but only if you agree to IYP with me!  Here it is... I love it and am wearing it to lunch today.   Smiley

She sent this scarf as an 'extra'.  Are you kidding me??  It's totally soft and the most gorgeous heather green (my new favorite color).

I am totally in love with this knit pouch.  Totally, I tell ya!  I can't decide if I'm going to carry my loyalty cards in it daily or save it for foreign money when I travel but I was looking for a zip pouch for both purposes. 

I love love love this jar lid pincushion!  Alwaysinmyroom needs to post a tutorial on how to make these so I can make them for my daughters.

Note cards that are cute cute cute!  She made me some a few years ago for another swap and I am sad every time I send one off.   Cheesy

An embroidered hoop of the hiney of one of our most affectionate sheep, Kat.  She is heading through a gate to our lower pasture.  I've attached the photo she used from my blog for reference.  She nailed it!  This is so special!

Check out this amazing tote!  It's gorgeous!  I think I'll use it to replace one of the boxes I use to take our things to the farmer's market every Friday.  Her sewing skills amaze me.  Amaze!!!

The inside is just as beautiful and she included a zipper pocket.

I asked Jack to help me show how big it is.  Huge!

And finally, whew, yummy Birch fabric.  We decided to swap a yard of fabric because who doesn't love an excuse to shop for fabric??This is my first Birch fabric, but not my last!

Thank you thank you thank you alwaysinmyroom!  I bow to your crafting skills!  Thank you so much for everything!   Kiss

That bunny card is adorable!  Texscrapper, you are a woman of many talents, and a superwoman on your sewing machine! 

I (finally) finished the miniature for Lionel that I've been working on.

Here's a photo to show scale.  I am super jealous you are close enough to pop in for macaroons whenever you have the urge!  He said something along the lines of 'ooh lala' when he opened it.  He kept asking questions about how it was done.  It think he was expecting a leg of lamb.   Cheesy

29  A Miniature (Actual) Bakery in Completed Projects by MissingWillow on: February 17, 2016 02:15:28 PM
Before we bought our farm almost 10 years ago, we lived in Cary, NC and our favorite local business was La Farm Bakery, an authentic french bakery within walking distance of our house.  About five years ago we started running into the bakery owner at food and wine festivals, where he was doing baking demonstrations and my husband and I were spit roasting lamb.  He's the nicest, most generous guy and I was inspired to surprise him with a miniature replica of his business.

I included a display of his cookbook, A Passion For Bread.  It's fantastic!  The pastries were made from polymer clay and paper clay.  The bottom shelf holds his bags of hearth baked granola, his scone mix and bags of the coffee he carries.  The counter is the base of a miniature china cabinet.

I've literally had that miniature baker's rack for at least 30 years, waiting on the perfect project.  The breads are made from paper clay with acrylic paint and chalk highlights.

I grabbed a few photos of the inside of his bakery, to show what I used for reference.  

I had to include a photo of his signature whole wheat sourdough boule with a butter knife for scale.  It's to die for!  If you'd like to check out his website, it's www.lafarmbakery.com

I can mark 3 things off of my list.  I was asked to provide side dishes for a lamb dinner with a food writer.  It was last night and it was delicious.  I made spinach salad with bacon and my homemade goat cheese with a sherry vinegarette, twice baked potatoes and a broccoli spinach quiche.  Our host provided leg of lamb, lamb ribs and awesome wine.
