About

One Tiny Little Teacup Started It All

I love to collect miniature and children's tea sets. I have quite a collection. Some of the most beautiful are from family members who have traveled abroad. Most of them I've found in thrift stores and shops I visited on vacation.

After my husband and I sold our house and bought a great apartment, I had limited space for my crafts. I decided to set up in one corner of the den.

One evening I took one of my tea sets and made the cream pitcher into a pin cushion, put a magnet in the teacup and decorated a few very small wooden spools. It was very cute, so, not really having a plan I continued on. I just kept moving the pieces around until it looked balanced, adding fabric and trim to the tray. I put a small pair of gold scissors in the teapot, glued everything down except the magnet. Well, that was fun and I made something functional. A Very Tiny Pin Cushion Set. My mom loved it. I made a few more that were completely different using thrift shop finds. After a year and 20 or 30 pin cushion sets later, the one corner of the den turned into four corners and most of the closet. My creations had take over most of the space. I sold a few to friends and family but something had to be done.... and then I found ETSY!
It was a little intimidating at first, but little by little I found my way. I have tried my hand at room boxes, miniature furniture scenes, book box greeting cards, and my little mice who love to sleep just about everywhere.
