Hutch built and styled by Trishiesminicorner on ETSY

Y’all come see us---the mat’s always out and the Keurig’s humming to herself.   Sweetpea’s introduced us to the most charming new housekeeper, though having to provide lodging for all that entourage of birds and mice was a bit tricky.  

Just sit right down, for what could be more welcoming than a bright pink kitchen, a smiling hostess, and a pug-in-a-tutu.

The wee-est candy dishes, reminiscent of the one huge heavy one on my Mammaw J’s coffee-table in their own tiny house.  It was always filled with King Leo peppermint balls---tiny pillows which whispered away on your tongue, leaving the faintest breath of sweet toothpaste.

Small necessaries:

The every-morning kitchen, with sunshine through the leaves, bright red coffee machine, and a fading pair of the eternal dish-britches.

 Lots of pretty pink salt.   The little flamingo couple are crocheted finger-puppets from a great menagerie we’ve collected over the years.  They come out mostly for after-dinner happenings and little pageants around holiday tables, as each of us chooses our role and character.

The new pink lights around the pass-through, and the small tinsel-tree like a magpie nest of gee-gaws from the old jewelry chest, with little doves in their nests of gaudy pink crowns.   The note-box at the top was a gift from my friend Donna at GATHER.

The flag-plank at the top was made by our two youngest GRANDS---with their handprints as the stars.

And some silly musings, after living in this fairy kitchen---this would be our Summer cottage in Maine.

And the handy Air-Stream parked out in the drive---A Girl can Dream.

Motoring on over to All things PINK at Beverly's House!!   With a fun stop at JOY'S Friendship Party.

Oh- I am just enamoured of this. I just LOVE it all. Miniatures have always fascinated me but I have never quite made the jump into working with them. I think I would be in hook-line-and-sinker. I love everything you have here--including the invisible Airstream in the driveway. lol xo Diana

I had to do a double-take on that pink kitchen! I was thinking it was a miniature at first but them realized it just couldn't be with all of the detail. Adorable post!

I just love the tiny little candy dishes and oh my gosh--they SURE DO remind me of my Ma-Maw's--wherever did you find such cute little things?
