I did a little swap with LesliesHappyHeart, and one thing I wanted to send her was something for her Blythe dolls. She has several that live in a happy little bookshelf home, and I thought they might like some home accessories.

I made the girls a box of letters, a clock that reverses to a picture frame, and a tiny terrarium under glass:


Here's the box all tied up, and the back of the clock, showing the frame:


And just because I was so happy about the way it turned out, a closeup of the terrarium. The butterfly was a brass charm that I painted with fingernail polish and a little black acrylic paint. I then bent the wings to make it look a little more real.


Here's Leslie's girl Bonnie with her new goodies:


I'm pretty sure I'll be making more accessories for Blythe in the future!

I like Kit-Kat, unless I'm with 4 or more people.

Did you use a brad for the clock pendulum?! What a spectacular swap package.

My Blythes and I all love the amazing new gifts from you, racky!  The letters and postcards are like little secrets hidden in that box; and the clock and terrarium are just too beautiful.  Now I will have to decorate a doll room based on these treasures!

I just returned after a long absence to find these AMAZING miniatures for Blythe!!!   Shocked

You really outdid yourself, Rackycoo...Your attention to detail is incredible.

I have a Dal and four Taeyangs...I really have a blast decorating their "apartments" with unusual vintage and my own handmade pieces.

HUGE APPLAUSE & TIPPED HAT to your over-the-top cool items!!!  Smiley
