Slowly my creative side is coming back to me. I've been working on swaps, but at the same time I have been working on a new floor for the rooftop patio above the bakery dollhouse. I'm doing the egg carton method- and to tell you the truth, I am not 100% sure of what I am doing, but I like it so far. I'm going to grout it this weekend and hopefully get it installed so I can start working on plants for the patio- so excited about that next step!! Here's my before shot, hopefully I'll have an after shot on Monday :)

I plan to add this into my patio rooftop garden- I adore pumpkins and have shelves with ceramic pumpkins in my living room year round- so I really was pleased to be able to add one of Nikki's pumpkin creations into my dollhouse. Nikki also sent along the most adorable little basket and spatula- thank you so much Nikki- I love them all!!
http://bearcabinminiatures.blogspot.com posted this little owl pillow for sale I had to snatch it up! I have a little owl tapesty from Julia hanging in the bedroom of the bakery/flower shop dollhouse and this little pillow matches so sweetly. I can't stop opening the house up and looking at it- I am in love. You can find Julia's etsy store here: http://www.etsy.com/shop/bearcabinminiatures . Thank you so much Julia!!!
http://katiesclaycorner.blogspot.com sent me the most fabulous miniature mail. I won a special package from her because I was the first person to correctly guess the question on her blog giveaway- I was secretly crossing my fingers and hoping, hoping, hoping I would get some mini mail, so thank you so much Katie for sending me a special package! Katie also sent me a little package of printies-I'm going to use some of them for the bus. The little fridge magnets are too darned cute and the playgirl magazine cracks me up! I might have to have that one half hidden under the bed :) Here's some pictures of what she sent and of course I had to put the mail on the desk in the unfinished library :)
Before I go, here's one more picture of my bakery/flower shop dollhouse. I hated how the side of the building looked so I printed off some advertisements and attached them to the side of the building. I think I like how it turned out- I'm not totally positive about them yet. What do you think of them? Hope you have a great weekend- I hope to be able to pull some weeds now that the rain has finally stopped, finish up one of my swaps and grout the patio flooring.
