Just having some fun!

I made these little dolls while I was away on holiday. They're smaller than the last lot, about 2.5 - 3cm tall.

I was inspired to pose them on the stage (which is in an old book I have) for the new blog header by Patricia at Papillon Bleu UK. Patricia has been making the sweetest little theatres. She also makes the most beautiful dolls and tells wonderful stories. Her world is an absolute delight to visit!


  1. Love the new header Mercedes, it looks fabulous...I'm sure it's alot of work, but well worth the effort!!

  23. Thise little dolls are so charming Mecedes!

  24. I just want to tell you how much I LOVE your blog. I have gone through your archives and been amazed. You inspired me to try to weave a miniature hanging basket for my dolls-house-in-construction. It turned out beautifully (and is featured in my own blog today!). Thank you so much.

    May I ask, where do you get your twine/string for your own baskets?

    It is such a coincidence, I was in touch with Jo Cavanagh (UK) who suggested I out check your blog...BUT I had already found and was following you (and Linda, Une Petite Folie).

    Your artistic eye is amazing Mercedes and your willingness to share your secrets so much appreciated.

    Best wishes from Ireland, Carol :)

  25. Deine Miniaturen sind wirklich wunderschön. Sie gefallen mir sehr gut.

    Liebe Grüße an Dich von der anderen Seite der Weltkugel
