Creating and collecting miniatures have long been a part of my life. They bring me inner squeals of joy when I make an individual piece or finishing up a setting that looks like I could walk on in if I was resized to that scale. Hopefully, they will bring you a little smile to cheer your day.

The cozy kitchen

Cozy Kitchen Corner

Here is the whole kitchen. It brims with food and china.  I can imagine that is it smells inviting from the freshly made soup and warm cake.  All that snow is outside but I am toasty inside in the kitchen. Below is a peek in the hutch, no need to go to the store, enough for many more meals.

A warm bowl of chicken soup on a wintry day

Warm soup is always a winner on cold days.

I created this cozy kitchen corner some time ago but decided it was an appropriate image for this batch of cold weather lately.  The painted hutch was by Becky Brown many years ago.  It set the tone for the room.  I started digging out various chicken related pieces to add to the room and it became this warm inviting kitchen. There is another small cabinet in the pantry, a terra cotta hen on the shelf, a framed picture of chickens in the barnyard  and of course the bowl of chicken soup on the table.  Hot tea in the teapot with honey ready to sweeten it to go with the soup.  Then a slice of freshly baked cake warm from the oven. I think a short afternoon nap may be in order after this meal.
