Hi Brae! So happy that you sold your place and found another one. You’ll be pretty busy for a while! Poor Mr. Rat, that box looks pretty heavy for him. He’s so cute! I took a look at that website. What beautiful work she does!

A dedicated work space - bliss!
I’ve never seen a rat before.
They are banned where I live, both in the wild and as domestic pets.
Mr. Rat looks like rather a darling!
All the best for a stress-free move into your new home. :)

Congratulations on the new home, for selling your current place – and for the soon-to-be work room! :D

A large dedicated workspace? I’m so jealous =0) But happy that you’ll have the room that you need. Looking forward to your return.

Looking forward to your return…but probably not as much as you are. Having a dedicated work space is the bee’s knees

I sympathize with your house sale. We’re in the same position; our first buyer fell thru & we’re now waiting on the 2nd buyer’s bank to give approval. Viewings ARE a pain so I thought you could use a chuckle:

just had a lady come to the door:
“Is there an open house? I saw the sign in front of the driveway”
“It’s just to show that it’s this house that’s for sale”

“Well I’ve phoned your realtor several times but she’s never gotten back to me”

> long pregnant pause

“………I was told there’s an offer on the table”
“we’re just waiting for bank approval so the deal can close….”

“Maybe I should phone her again…”

Im so J I wish I had one too (Im really bad with stuff like that I buy it or win it and then I put it on a shelf and look at it but never use it..it’s probably a good thing that I dont have one cause Im running out of shelf space)

Doll Domiciles… sigh.
I still have one of their brochures tucked away somewhere.
I was too young/poor to ever purchase anything from them but they were so covetable!
I can’t wait to see what you do with these!

What a fabulous find. It is amazing what you can find in old salt and pepper collections. When I was a child my grandmother had a huge salt and pepper collection - 100s. Unfortunately I wasn’t into miniatures then. I am sure there would have been many sets I would be able to use now in my miniatures.

Otterine, do you read Susan’s Mini Homes (susanshouses.blogspot.com)? Within an hour of your post (if I’ve got my time stamps right), Susan posted a photo set from one of hew houses…and she has a vintage television salt-and-pepper shaker set just like yours!

Add me to the list of “we miss you” friends ! Your work & blog is some thing I “go to” when feeling the need to be inspired, get ideas or just plain chill out & relax. Selling/moving can be sp stressful so here is a wish all goes smoothly & you can bring your projects back out into a workable space!

Here’s hoping the right buyer shows up soon–and may I tell you how much I admire your attitude through life’s ups and downs?

Hi Brae! so Sorry your buyers fell through…. it can be a challenge to keep everything so tidy for the “viewings"! I wish you luck and a quick turn-around!
At least you do have some steps you can complete while it is still flat…. but I would be tempted to set it up anyway and have it be part of the “decor” or covered with a big sheet in the corner! LOL! It seems so unfair that we have to make a house look not lived in to make it sell-able!
I am glad to see you posting… I was just thinking how I missed seeing your fascinating work in progress!

Hello Brae,

Slowly making my way back and I will have lots to catch up on. I hope your house sells quickly so you don’t have to pack everything away.
Thank you for you post on my blog.

I’ve missed reading your blog! So glad to see you back, if only for a bit. Hopefully the next prospective buyer will step up and love the place!

While you’re on here for a bit–do you know of anyone with a door handle like a business (old) might have–with the upright curved handle that had the thumb button on top? I’m doing a bar and would love to find one of those, but so far no luck.
