Sweet Prizes From Mary's Giveaway

I recently won the giveaway that Mary of M's Minis and More blog held. I was one of two lucky winners, and "lucky" really is the right word for it. Mary was so thoughtful with her prizes, sending handmade miniatures in my favorite colors and themes along with some great craft supplies. Here's a special cookbook with photos of cupcakes inside:


Some of my personal favorites include all of these wonderful min vegetables, including open baked potatoes, pats of butter, carrots and green beans. Mary even included chopped veggies and peels too! Finally, Flossy and Sophie can eat some healthy food! ;-)


There were clamps for holding together mini projects while the glue dries, darling books with mini bookmarks and mini ink pens, gorgeous beads, and a potted plant that is absolutely perfect for my 1960s mid-century modern instant dollhouse:


And I adore these tiny baby bottles and toilet bowl scrubbers. So cute!


Thank you so much for your thoughtful, fun and useful gifts, Mary! If you haven't seen Mary's blog, I highly recommend it. It is fun, interesting, and from the heart.

Next post I'll show you a new mini that I made. It was really fun to try something totally different. Until next time, keep it fun! xoxo Jennifer

  30. O my! The toilet brushes! The milk bottles! Too darn cute, Jen! And that round tray, my, is it common for you all to use trays like this? As you nay know, Jen, on Chinese New Year, we often display candies and auspicious sweets/ goodies in similar tray we call "Togetherness Tray" . So cute to make the in minis :)

  33. My dear Jennifer, due to personal problems, related to the family sphere, over the past few months I have greatly neglected the blog, both my own and those of friends. These days I'm finding a little time and mood to recover the lost post :-)
    First, I want to tell you that I find adorable your kitchen sets for sale on Etsy :-) Do not you get enough of them around, in the doll's kitchen :-)
    In addition, I believe that with this prize has been awarded your great creativity: the fate was never more apt!
    Your whole world is colorful and full of joy and, you know? I sometimes think of Flossy and Sophie as if they really existed, in their house ... This means, I think, that you are able to create a whole world of emotions, not just virtual ...
    Waiting for the next post,
    I wish you a wonderful Summer :-)
    Flora

  37. Hi Jennifer! I just Love Mary's veggies! I love the ones with the peels removed and in the side compartment! I think that is is very useful to have the veggies in so many different stages so that you can have some in the pot as well as waiting to be readied. The cookbook is really cute and the other gifts are all so cute and practical! You have some wonderful little pieces and I know that you will have a gas playing with them all!
