HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME!!!!
What better day to have a birthday than TINY TUESDAY!
Here are a few TINY things that have been gifted to me lately:
Look at this tiny present from Tracie!!
TINY BOOKS ABOUT CATS!
TINY HANDMADE BOOKS!
These little books were made by my friend Anna, who MUST get an etsy shop so you can buy these from her!!! HINT HINT Anna! 🙂 Are they not the most adorable TINY books ever?!
TINY FIELD AGENTS!
I’m starting to get some awesome field agents who are reporting and sending in their notes from the wilds of attics, and junk shoppes, and grandmothers houses both near and far. The shots below are from my completely delightful friend, Cotton Candy. She took these pictures of miniatures from her very own mother’s collection!*
*EDIT: Since I originally wrote this post, Cotton Candy actually gifted me with most of her TINY collection! I am flabbergasted by and so appreciative of her generosity. I am so excited to be the care taker of her collection. However, she did not let go of the amazing toilet you’ll see below. Everyone needs to keep a little bit of TINY! 🙂
What with all this HB2 toilet controversy lately, I am hesitant to post a toilet here! It says “LADIE’S” on the side, but does that mean it’s for a young lad? Or for ladies? So confusing! Thank goodness it’s too small for anyone besides a doll (and dolls can’t go to jail) to use or things could get very controversial. :O
(Because I love TINY as much as I love SHOES!)
(The glasses on the pink-hared one are too TINY CUTE!)
Another one of my filed reporter’s is my old CoMo pal, Owly. She’s paring down her collections and asked if I would be the care taker of her TINY collection. Of course, I said, “Of course!” Here are two little sneak peeks at some of her TINY delights that are now on display at the North Grove Park Inn.
Mom and I were walking around downtown Asheville yesterday and a curio case caught my eye. It turned out to be the same model as the one I bought myself for my birthday two years ago at Ikea. Inside the case were all sorts of fun stationary supplies and some one inch buttons. One set of the buttons said “I’m particular”… and one of my dad’s sayings was “Be Particular”. Of course mom and I went on upstairs to the homegoods floor of Minx and bought them! We both got to have one. How fun is that?
They’re made by Stay Home Club— you’ve gotta check them out!
TINY ERASER FOOD!
Also at the little store were dadgum Iwako erasers. I resisted buying them but I’ll share them with you for your fix. The stationary sheets were so fun, too. The upstairs part of Minx is definitely one of my new favorite places for papergoods!
Life sure has been full of wonderful TINY stuff lately!
Stay tuned in the coming weeks as I share more of my new collections of miniatures!
Happy TINY Tuesday to you!
and Happy Birthday to me!
