As I have recently bought lots of new metal beads and findings, I now began to use them for making some new silverware for my dollshouse. It is quite fun to spread all kinds of bits and pieces on the table and to start to think and try which of them fit nicely together. Here is some of my new silverware on display in the Erlenhof dining room.

I crocheted this rug for the nursery in Erlenhof. I thought a lot about my dear Grandmother while I was making it. Back in the 60's or 70's, Grandma crocheted several 1:1 rugs rather similar to this. I remember that we had two green ones and a grey one in my home. When Grandma was not capable of crocheting anymore, she gave a bundle of her old crochet hooks to me, among them one big one which she used for crocheting rugs. It is very much bigger than the hook which I used for making this rug!
More crocheted miniatures here.

Irmeli and I visited the Miniatures Fair in Lahti today. It was organised by the Dollshouse hobbyists' assocation of Päijät-Häme. This is one of my purchases, a Lundby stove from the '70s. I am going to place it in my 1:16 scale Lisa dollshouse.
I also bought this Siamese cat
and these nail decals which can also be used for decorating miniatures. They are similar to the water slide decals which I just recently tried for the first time.
I also bought some fabrics, plates and other dishes and several kinds of findings, frames etc.
A very good fair day indeed!
