In The Christmas Spirit Everything’s Looking Miniature To Me

One Christmas Eve when I was a little girl about 7 years old I could hardly sleep I was so excited.  I got out of bed about 2 am and saw the most amazing sight.  Santa had left me a homemade stove and cupboard filled with miniature pots, pans and dishes.  I wanted to play with them so bad.  I got my sisters up to see the sight.  I will never forget, the tree lights were on and there under the tree was this beautiful cabinet and stove all handmade and just my size.  Everything sparkled and it just seemed like magic was everywhere.  My mom made us go back to bed which was pure torture knowing Santa had been here and left all this wonderment!  My parents were amazing at making everything magical at Christmas time including ringing bells outside our bedroom window.  Every year around Christmas I get this urge to make a miniature scene of magic.  I make about one a year because they are very time consuming.  I use lots of vintage items in my rooms and a little bit of creative magic.  Below is a slide show of some of my past miniature rooms.  Enjoy the magic and Happy Holidays to everyone!!

I am an interior designer with over 27 years of experience in both residential and commercial design. I love the "do it yourself" person because I am a do it yourself person and I very much identify with making old new again. I believe that our spirits are rejuvinated and inspired when we relect who we are and what we believe in and are not afraid to face the harder parts of our lives. This blog will be dedicated to that purpose. I am also a survivor of domestic violence. I have an insatiable desire to grow and learn about myself in both spiritual and emotional ways. I love being a guest speaker for events in self-growth with the idea of hopefully inspiring others that past traumas can be over come and life can be terrific or at the very least good!
