For the love of all things small......

I've discovered a little something.
I just LOVE tiny things!!!
I mean it.
I've found so many wonderful small goodies....and love them so.
Do you love them too?
I posed this little porcelain doll below to look like she's so very sad
to be naked!!!! and a sweet angel Lynn wanted to make her a dress....




Of course I love my little Ellie.
We ALL do....and she's still tiny and three years old next month!



I love making tiny things...
like fairy shoes ~




How could you not love doll shoes.....
Thank you dear Rose for these!


Have you ever seen how tiny a hummingbird nest is???
I so love this Rose....



Doll dresses are a fav....I can't resist them when I'm out junkin'



These girls aren't that small but still wanted to be in this post :)



Tiny bunnies from paperclay....


And look, a sweet little porcelain doll with a new dress!!!!
Can you believe Lynn made this dress without even seeing my sweet little doll???




A tiny fairy I've made back in the day ~



The ultimate tiny treasures ~ buttons!



Small shoes that have a new life.....



Small altered composition books that I've called "thought books"
perfect to jot an idea down and keep in your purse.


How could we not love small things....
they are precious and so near and dear to our heart!!!

Wishing you a wonderful Thursday sweet friends,
hugs and love,
Dawn

I'm with you Dawn, tiny is pretty cute! Maybe that's why kittens, puppies etc... pull at my heart strings. Your little Ellie is pretty cute too!
Your sweet little vintage doll looks so cute against the old toweling.
Have a wonderful evening.

OMG,

The blog world is right again, Rose left a comment! LOL Okay my friend, you JUST figured out your obsession with tiny pretties?? I've know about it forever. Every pictures I remember, those little fairy shoes, didn't you buy those from stampington & embellish them about a year ago?? See, I read your posts, ha ha. Then of course the baby shoe pincushion & the paper clay bunny. Those little slippers Rose sent are the sweetest! The teeny doll slip you made me is my personal fave. Have a great day, I'm back to the burlap factory. PS My house looks like a barn! Lisa

Hello dear Dawn - I've not stopped by in a while because I was away on my Africa safari! Now I'm trying to catch up while also busy posting on the most awesome trip of my life.............great photos of the amazing wildlife and beautiful places we stayed!

Loved this post showing tiny treasures, and your sweet Ellie is the most special one of all.

Hope all is well - hugs, Mary

All of your tiny things = big love! I have tiny things all over my house from a teeny tea pot made from a penny, to an even teenier glass paperweight from England.
The little doll looks adorable in her new dress. :)

Me too, Dawn! I love tiny things. My eye is automatically drawn to them when I'm shopping. Of course, now that I have a dollhouse my need for tiny is even greater.

Love your little doll and the fairy shoes!

Sweet post Dawn. Wonderful gifts and also treasures you have made.

My hand made hummingbird nests turned out looking a lot like that little real one you were gifted with, but I think I'd better keep practicing!

Hmmm. Maybe we should have a special, "Post Tiny Things Day" in Blogland. =)

hugs and blessings

OOps! Got the boot right in the middle there...okay, as I was saying...

Your craft room is like a delightful museum. I loved seeing all of your treasures and your many talents on display.

Dawn,

Seeing this post just made my day and caused me to have a big smile. You see, my granddaughter LibbyAnna loves tiny things. She carries something around in her hand all day long and has a big box of *teenies* as she refers to them. Even when she falls asleep at night she has one or two in her little hand. So sweet. Just like you.

melonybradley said...

Tiny is fun! Love your post on all things tiny and Pretty!

Ima Weed said...

Who could not love that sweet looking Ellie and I am already dreaming of a night wearing those fairy slippers.

Romeo said...

Oh yes! We ("her" and I) LOVE little things!!! Best part is that they don't take up much space at all!!! "She" ADORES the hummingbird nest - OMG is all "she" said then fell over. I think that was an indication of excitement/admiration overload. No worries - "she" makes a nice fluffy pillow when "she's" horizontal and I was just thinking about a nap....

Purrs!

Romeo and "her"

Dawn . oh the love of tiny objects -- It is the tiny things that make my heart smile the most --
tiny cups and saucers and -clay birds -- little nest with tiny pearls -- today was positioning tiny hearts no bigger that the top of a pin -- on a tiny 1 inch envelope -- one of my favorite rubber stamps -- says IN itty bitty letters -- It is the little things that count -- KAthy - ga ♥
