Birthday Presents

For my birthday my husband to me to the Chicago miniature show yesterday.

For his first show, he handled it suprisingly well.

My first present is this doll made by Pat Melvin.

When I saw her I knew she would be perfect for my shabby bakery.

The cake stand in the center is from J. Getzan.
I put two cakes on it that were made by Miniatures by Rachel.
My presents...and husband are the best!
Enjoy your day!

Many Happy Returns,

You lucky duck! I love Pat's things. Haven't seen her in a while but her "children" are precious. And your bakery looks fabulous.
