Shopping List Saturday: teeny tiny

everything's better small.

I learned my love for the little when my father built me a dollhouse. My mother bought me a tiny tiny old fashioned bathroom set--a claw-footed tub, an ancient toilet with the pull chain flusher, and a tiny pitcher and wash basin to grace the bedroom dresser. I also had a tiny grandfather clock, a tiny fireplace set, a tiny tiny set of dishes for the kitchen cabinets. My grandmother helped me decorate the house, laying down a small turkish rugs on the living room floor, hanging pale blue floral wallpaper in the kitchen, pasting paper that looked like tiny tiles on the floor of the bathroom. I was always on the lookout for teeny accessories for those six rooms. And, I guess I still am.

Love this. I've been rightly accused of buying useless miniature things (like my tiny spoons that match my flatware but are too small to use for much of anything!) just because I love the teeny tiny!!! And I never had a good doll house, I just like small!

This post reminded me of this promo video from the movie Coraline. This woman, Althea Crome, knitted Coraline's actual sweater and gloves - pretty amazing stuff.
