New Auctions to Benefit St. Jude's Children's Research Hospital

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! I've had a crazy week! If you read my other blog you'll know that we spent Black Friday rescuing a starving and freezing kitty cat called Puss In Boots! This has taken up a lot of our weekend but it's been nice to help an animal in need.

Today I've decided that this week's auctions will help benefit the St. Jude's Children's Research Hospital. I've listed 8 items on eBay and you can find them here. I'm posting a photo of each item so you can get an idea of what's up for grabs! 10% of each sale goes to St. Jude's, so the higher the bid the more they benefit. Combined shipping is always available at no extra charge.

Happy bidding!

1:12 Scale Dollhouse Bakery Displays

I've been a busy bee again! I am thankful to have the minis bug, but man have I had no time to do anything recently. I'm hoping this winter will be a long winter of making miniatures.

Here's a little something to whet your appetite. Two bakery displays!

I'm on a mega exercise kick and a big diet right now so these minis are really just a way to handle sweets without getting all of the big calories.

1:12 Scale Handmade Dollhouse Miniature Chinese Takeaway

This week I'm offering a 1:12 American style Chinese takeout set on eBay. My coworkers have been sending me requests for certain items to be made, and my friend and coworker, Megan, asked that I make a Chinese food set. My husband is a huge fan of our local takeaway, and although I'm not quite foodie enough to really enjoy the same dishes he likes, I do love noodles and have always liked steamed rice.

Takeaway boxes are a fun item to put together. I found a template online and then altered it to fit my needs. I'm going to keep working to refine the concept. Each box takes me about 30 minutes to put together, and then of course, there's the food to be added as well. I've called our restaurant "Red Door Buffet" in honor of the Buffet down the road and my favorite Chinese takeaway in Northumberland, which had a red door. Each box has a metal handle which is NOT functional, so please no heavy lifting by the wire!
