Pink Saturday: More Miniatures

Participating in PINK SATURDAY at Beverly's blog, How Sweet the Sound was so much fun last week that I'm back for more! I found so many amazing blogs and still have to go through them. I look forward to meeting other bloggers this week, too.

What's pink this week?

* My Tudor Tea Shoppe uses soft shades of pink. I have a few small photos up on my website's miniature Teapot Shoppe page. (click images for larger photo).

* My Victorian sitting room is pink also. The curtains and ceiling light are hand-beaded. The ceiling (not shown) has small framed art surrounded by strings of "pearls."

* This lovely lady sitting at a table with pink decorations is also from my Teapot Shoppe. Of course, she's reading a replica copy of my real-life kid's mystery, Searching for a Starry Night, A Miniature Art Mystery from Quake.

(** See yesterday's post about the new ebook at Barnes & Noble.com for a great contest!!)

The Book:

The "real" book, for ages 9+ (adults too!) features friends Sam, and her bff, Lita, who along with a mischievous Dachshund named Petey, face an angry housekeeper, a dog-hating gardener, and an ancient family curse as they search for a missing miniature replica of Van Gogh's famous painting, "Starry Night." (Plus they encounter some fabulous miniatures, many from my own collection! I welcome more readers, so be sure to get your copy!)

The miniature book (which I had made for me, see link to Lee Ann's books below) includes chapter one from the real-life book. (You can read or download the actual chapter of Searching for a Starry Night here. )

* So just a few scenes I hope you've enjoyed! Please stop by my website or come back to the blog anytime. If you read my book, I'd love to hear your comments!

Other Pink Minis to Check Out:

* The miniature Searching for a Starry Night book in the doll's hands is by artisan Lee Ann Borgia. Be sure to check out more of her amazing miniature books.

* See Kim's amazing shabby roses

* Pretty handpainted platter at Paris Miniatures

* Kitty's pretty miniature lady's blouses and boxes

  16. Chris, I'm still working through the Pink Saturday list. I am loving your post! I adore dolls and anything to do with them. Your Tudor room is amazing. I don't think I've ever seen one like it. I really love the boudoir! The bed looks wonderful. I'll be back for more! HPS

  17. Cold, dark, misty in my neck of the woods. My perennials are hiding and I am wearing a sweatshirt. Coming here today made my day a little brighter. Thanks so much.

    I'm a little late with my Pink Saturday visits because I had my grandsons for the weekend and couldn't tear myself away from them☺

    ♥Wishing you and yours a week full of happiness♥
