Holy cow. The dollhouse is too sweet as are the little nest houses. I want to make one of the nests as well. Too bad we can't make the bed ourselves, Yikes! Thanks once again for sharing all this goodness, Pam

Dawn, How do you think I'm ever going to have time to paint with your showing me all these wonderful nests and cones and such to create??! I made cones to hold chocolate kisses for the girls who deliver my groceries and I'm working on altered art Valentine's recipe cards...which may have to wait until I make a bird's nest or two!
Thank you for sharing your talent and treasures.
Blessings, Susie

Quite a bed!! I can see why you love it!

The fairy houses are so cute ~ I saw something similar in Tinker Bell's Garden at Disney World a few years ago.

Dawn ~ I quoted part of a grandparent article on my blog today and included a link to the rest of it. If you get a chance please stop by and read it. I think you'll enjoy it. I've been enjoying all the peeks at your shower prep. It's sure to be a lovely time!

Now Dawn.... Go ahead and buy that bed! It will be good for the economy! LOL Just Kidding! Sounds like something I would say to my husband.... oh my goodness.. I think it is bed time!

I checked out that nest tutorial, and it looks much easier than mine.
Not sure how it stays together without wrapping it, but
I'm going to try one.

Do I remember you saying you don't do tags??
Take too much time??

Well, let me see... $50.00/ week x what? equals $15,000.00, hmm... Might take a while. I LOVE it too!!! Dang, I hate it when I see something like that and can't have it!#* Life is just soooo cruel! Oh well, I guess I'll live. Deb

Kim said...

That is a wonderful bed - but did you see the hand-carved swan bed in Victoria? It was just beautiful!

Cindy said...

I have had the good fortune of taking workshops from the enormously imaginative woman who created the fairy house "blueprint" pictured in this post. Her name is Tatiana Katara, and I'm sure you will be inspired by her website
She teaches at Shake Rag Alley Center for Arts & Crafts in Mineral Point, Wisconsin. I have met so many fantastic artists and craftsmen there!! You might enjoy these links as well:
Thanks, Dawn, for all your sharing and inspiration!
