Songstress Shelia's Charming Minis

I  am so pleased to introduce y'all to my dear friend Shelia, who
was bit by the miniature collecting bug recently.  

Here is Shelia with her husband whom she calls Mr Precious.
What a lovely couple and Shelia is cute as a bug too!  She
is such a fun and talented person.  I don't think there is 
anything she can't do.  If you don't already know Shelia, then
you must head over to her blog where you will meet her
wonderful family, take tours of her charming home, and be
amazed by all of her creativity.  You will find her at

Like me, Shelia does not have a dollhouse yet, but that has
not prevented her from creating adorable rooms in bookcases in
her sewing room.  Let's explore these rooms more closely.

As I said, I think Shelia can do anything she sets her mind to.  Look
at these adorable chairs and books.  She taught herself to make both
after watching some tutorials.  

I love her choice of titles!

Always on the hunt, Shelia found some unfinished minis at the dollar store,
just waiting for her artistic touch.

She gave the pieces a good base coat and then ....

she added hand painted decorative embellishments.  These are so sweet!

Check out this cottage style dinette.  I love the use of gingham and
floral touches on the walls, inside the hutch and on the chairs.
Perfectly charming!

Here are the two lucky inhabitants of the house, Lola and her cat Tang.
I think it is wonderful that the child in Shelia has never disappeared.
Her two grandchildren are blessed to have a grandmother with such a
young and cheerful heart.

Charming bedroom with a pretty quilt on the bed.  Tang probably wants
some privacy because it's nap time :-)

The nursery.

The bath with it's clawfoot tub and pretty wallpaper.  

The new dining room furniture.  I can't help but notice that Shelia has
some miniature Staffordshire dogs on the buffet.  She collects the full 
sized ones and so do I.  We are also both Texans who love our 
diet Dr Pepper ;-)

And here is Lola with her new washer and dryer.  She is waiting for the
construction crew to build her some walls.  

Thank you for stopping by today.  I hope you enjoyed this tour as much
as I enjoyed sharing it with you.  Working with dollhouse minis is such
a delightful hobby.  I am glad that Shelia caught the bug too!

  1. Oh, Susan, thank you for featuring my little mini-ess! What a sweet post and as I said - I'm so humbled. You've made my day. Heck, you've made my week!
    You are the sweetie,
    Shelia ;)

    1. It was my pleasure! I love your dollhouse so much, I want to move in. I hope that Tang and Bentley become friends :-)

  2. Fun post. Do you know, I have never been to the Dollar Store. I never would have guessed that they would have had minis like this, so a trip is in my future. Thanks, Susan.

  3. We have quite a few dollar stores in my area, but I have never found any of these sweet minis. I guess I will have to visit them more often!

  4. This is just about as precious as Shelia! :)

    1. Yes, it is. Sheila's cheerful and sweet personality radiates through everything she touches!

  5. Great dollhouse and good ideas. I have to go to the Dollar Store soon. Thanks.

    1. Me too! The dollar store is a treasure trove. My Mom used to find the best things there.

  6. I love Shelia's dollhouse book shelf. She is so creative. Thanks for featuring her!

    1. I am glad you enjoyed it. It's so much fun!
