Dollhouse Miniature Gifts and Giveaways!

There's so much to tell you--let's get started! Be sure and read this whole post--you don't want to miss the giveaway news! :-)


Remember Julia's fantastic tip on how to miniaturize an image? She generously gave me a copy of her Cath Kidston party set, and I miniaturized it and printed some more pieces from the set, including these darling party hats, fun blue polka dot carton, the washi tape holder, and this festive multi-colored bunting.

The Japanese washi tapes were made by asukasakumo on Etsy.

There are so many more pieces in this party set. And there are several party sets to choose from--all super-cute! You can get your own party set in Julia's Etsy shop. Thank you again for your lovely gift, Julia!

Speaking of gifts, I received several surprise Christmas gifts in the mail over the last few weeks. I already showed you Drora's wonderful gifts. Next, I received a gorgeous surprise from maribel of MINIATURAS ISABEL blog:


The nightgown, panties, and slippers are so adorable, and they look perfect in Cupcake Cottage. Thank you so much, maribel! Your gifts were so thoughtful.

Next, I received another surprise package from Maria of Pretty Things Ireland blog. Her gifts to me in San Francisco were already more than enough :-)--then she sent me more cute things:


In this close-up photo, you can see a couple of darling pieces of blue cheese that Maria made for the mice in Dad's Dollhouse:


They're so sweet! Look for the blue cheese in a future story with the mice. Thank you so much, Maria. Your gifts are all so precious, as is your friendship.

Now, on to giveaway news. There are two giveaways I want to tell you about. The first one is right now. You know how much I love comments. Your comments mean so much to me, and blogging wouldn't be nearly as fun without them. So, in order to thank my "super" commenters, I came up with a giveaway plan. I decided that those readers who left comments on at least three of my last four blog posts would be eligible for this giveaway. Here's the list:

1. Susanna Zanchi
2. Kikka
3. Wyrna Christensen
4. The Old Maid
5. Drora's minimundo
6. Mieke
7. Maria Ireland
8. Candy
9. Beverly
10. BiWuBar
11. Vicky Lovejoy
12. Lucille
13. Melli's Hobby
14. MelyMel
15. Victoria Stitch
16. Ilona
17. Fi.P
18. Giac
19. Ascension
20. maribel
21. BeBe Cherie
22. MALINIK
23. PAKY
24. Jacqueline

These are some of the super followers who leave comments very, very often on my blog. Let's give them a round of applause. Thank you very, very much for your dedicated commenting! There are some who are missing, perhaps because they were busy over the holidays or were caring for loved ones. I appreciate all of you so much too. And I appreciate everyone who leaves even one sweet comment. Thank you one and all!

For this giveaway, the 24 people on the above list qualify, and there are six prizes:


Prizes #1 and #6 were made by Jill T at Halfpint Miniatures on Etsy, and prize #4 was made by Catherine Parsons of SweetPetite Shoppe on Etsy. I ran the draw on Random.org, and here are the winners, in this order:

1. MelyMel (#14)
2. Mieke (#6)
3. The Old Maid (#4)
4. Ascension (#19)
5. MALINIK (#22)
6. Beverly (#9)

Congratulations to the lucky winners! Please email me your mailing addresses, so I can send you your prizes!

OK, one giveaway is over, and another one begins right here on Plushpussycat in one week's time. Be sure to stop by to see the prizes and learn why we are celebrating. All followers of this blog (including those who join now!) are eligible for next week's giveaway--yay!!! Until next time, keep having fun! xoxo Jennifer
