2015 Seattle Dollhouse Haul


Last weekend was the Seattle Dollhouse Show in Seattle Washington, I thought it would be fun to show you what I was able to find while at the show and on the way home.



Normally when I visit a mini show I look at all the tables and then go back and purchase the things that I really want. This year I broke that rule because my first purchase was so precious I was afraid someone else would get it before I got back. That item was this beautiful butterfly dome. I got this from Lauren at Scaling Down the Past (you can find her Etsy shop here) she has some of the most wonderful minis that I have seen in a long time.


One of my favorite sellers at the show is Ruth Stewart of Stewart Dollhouse Creations. You might remember the wonderful cupcake mold and frosting kit I showed you all last year. This year Ruth has more really fun stuff. It was really hard but I did manage to not buy everything on her table. I limited myself to just a few items. What I did get were: the Birdcage Pastry Tower, the French macaron mold and the cupcake cake mold (this one can be used in both dollhouse scale and for the 18” dolls) Be sure to check out Ruth's site here for more fun stuff. 
 

At Jeannie Lindquist's table I picked up 3 different kits to make some flowering plants. I haven't done very many plant kits so I am looking forward to giving these a try. You can find Jeannie's website here, although currently I am only seeing her book in her store.





 
My last purchase at the show was two little wooden kits from Modern Miniature Magic (email her  here) one for a planter and one for a cute little stair step shelf unit. I think these will look really nice with my plans for the building I am working on in the building series.





On my way home I also stopped at the Hobby Lobby since we don't have one here. I was able to find some paper for a project that I am in the process of getting started on. For some reason I couldn't find anything to use that would look like a very subtle stone for a background. I am hoping the paper I picked up will work well. For the same project I picked up a 1/24th scale WW II Army Jeep, another item I have been trying to find and it seemed everywhere I looked around here either didn't carry it or were out of stock. That is a project that I will show you all when I get it finished.

Also at Hobby Lobby I got some Kato liquid polymer clay, I have been wanting to try this for some time. No one around here carries it so I had put it on my list to look for. While I was looking around for different things I found the Lumiere metallic paints. I have never used them but they looked so interesting I decided I had to try them

So that is pretty much all I got I hope you enjoyed the video and the pictures here.
