Biding the time ~*~ Breakfast in Bed


I've been doing a swap "Within the Castle Walls". Only 4 signed up, so not including myself I only had to make 3 sets. I had this perfect sheet fabric so I just sat down and made them. Then pillow cases. I realized I had to fit it into the theme so I went for breakfast in bed. Who would be having breakfast in bed within a castle? I don't know but I can assume it's a modern castle, British, possibly someone with Children and who's planning on herself or someone else's getting married.

When I think castle I think living comfortably and breakfast in bed with all the things I'd like to read plus a yummy breakfast and very comfy sheets.

So I'm still waiting on some doilies and trays. Technically we're supposed to make it all, but I did pretty good with the bedding, breakfast, books and magazine. The plates and silverware I had around in extras, and I ordered the tea and roses.

I had fun trying different napkin folds for the silver, I ultimately went with that fold because I thought it looked good with the gingham. I recommend, cutting some squares, and getting out your iron and trying this some time. You could even look up folds online. What a blast.


Anyhow, crossed fingers to my order arriving in two weeks and I can thus continue my dollhouse.

Hi Tara,

Wow, I'll tell you that I did once emailed Nana Miniatures about shipping to my country. I didn't get any email back, and so I figured she was probably not interested in doing business with me.

Sorry to know you had an unhappy experience with them...((hugs))
