Where to Find Mini Dolls for Your Dollhouse - KMMiniature Dolls - Handmade Dolls

Hi There..... Do you like handmade dolls? Would you like to learn more about the mini dolls of Katerina Menthe?

You may not know who she is, but that’s not a big problem because I am going to tell you everything you need to know about her and her cute handmade dolls. 😉

Did you play with dolls as a kid? We were 3 girls at home when I was a kid, so there were enough dolls to play with. Although we each had our own. It wasn’t ok just to take each other’s doll and go play with it. 😏

Recently, I came across a picture of when I was about 4, and Saint Nicholas had just brought us new toys. I remember that there were lots of chocolates, and I promptly put one of those in my mouth. It would have been a shame to let it go to waste, right? 😄

There were also 3 dolls, one for each of us. If I remember correctly, mine was a black doll with curly hair. They weren’t handmade dolls, just plain plastic ones, but I still recall I was over the moon with mine. 😊

I have been following Katerina Menthe and her mini dolls for some time on Instagram now. We have been exchanging likes and comments for quite a while. As a thank you, she sent me 2 of the cutest mini dolls, so I wanted to repay the favor by making a blog post about her handmade dolls.



About Katerina Menthe

I am the designer and creator artist of bears and dolls.
My creative nickname is Katerina Menthe.
Welcome to my world of little adorable bears and mini dolls!
Express your feelings with such a wonderful gift as a cute teddy bear or doll. Or you can also adopt some of them.
I'm Ekaterina and I love to sew little dolls up to 10 cm (4 inches) tall!

This doll doesn't like to sit on the shelf... all day long.
She wants to LIVE near YOU!
She has movable legs and hands, so you can change her poses:
put her on her legs,
seat her on a chair,
put her to bed... like a tiny human being!
She dreams of traveling in your bag when you go out.
She adores NATURE!
She adores different ARTS!
She adores finding and tasting something NEW!
She wants to become your loyal friend...
to admire and inspire,
to help and make you glad,
to guide and guard!
She was made to make you happy!
Attention! The doll is not intended for small children.

Mini Doll features

I make every doll of 100% cotton and stuffed with fiberfill. Her arms and legs are movable. She has hand-embroidered eyes, nose, and mouth. The doll has handmade clothes and accessories... and her own character :) I work with high-quality materials. I prefer natural fabrics such as cotton, silk, wool, and adore using French lace and Swarovski.


My opinion on the Mini Dolls

Ekaterina gave me the opportunity to choose my favorite doll. I picked one of her 4 inches (10 cm) angel dolls. It quite surprised me to find 2 beautifully wrapped boxes in my package. The boxes contained 2 dolls lying on a bed of shredded paper. 😀

The angel doll I chose has the most beautiful lace gown, and she even has a pair of briefs beneath. Ah yes, I just had to know. Shame on me for being a peeping Tom.


Isn't she super cute with her big green bow? I don't know how Ekatrina does it, but the tiny arms and legs can definitely move, so you can sit her down or lay her to bed if you like. She also has a cute little necklace with a crystal in the middle. Definitely the cutest mini doll I have ever seen.


The other box contained a somewhat flatter and smaller (2.7 inches or 7 cm) doll with a brooch pin on the back. She wears a cute little gold-color crown. Her arms and legs don't move, and she has no briefs, but she would make a lovely addition to your outfit. I am definitely showing her off the next time I am invited somewhere. 😎

These mini dolls are much to delicate and precious to give to small children. They both are 2 tiny pieces of art. 😍

Before I close this blog post, I would like to wish you all a wonderful New Year. 😚

Hope you like my blog.....Until next time.....Have a nice day

Where to Find Personalized Gifts for Her - Forever Wedding Favors - Canvas Tote

Hi There..... Are you a fan of personalized gifts? Perhaps you are looking for a canvas tote bag?

Personalized gifts are always extra fun if you ask me. It means that the person giving it went the extra mile to make your gift special. If you, for instance, get a personalized canvas bag, you’d be able to spot it anywhere. Neat, right? 😎

Bags, they remind me of vacation, and it’s been a while since we last went on a Holiday. All thanks to this wonderful virus which made our lives so predictable. The only thing predictable nowadays is when you can go get your booster vaccine. 😬

I hate that there are so many conflicts between people that are vaccinated on one side and on the other side the ones that don’t want to. People are all trying to change each other’s minds. Sad to see that Corona has driven such a wedge between us. 😢

Ah, but what better way to bond again than a glorious New Year’s party. Ah yes, and personalized gifts like this canvas tote bag Forever Wedding Favors gifted me in exchange for my honest opinion. 😍


FOREVER WEDDING FAVORS

At Forever Wedding Favors you can find personalized Gifts She Will Treasure Forever. Being a bride can be an amazingly overwhelming job. After working in the wedding industry for years, we realized it was time for us to lend a helping hand.

DETAILS

My opinion on the canvas tote bag

I asked to customize my bag with the word Fun, because that's what best describes the feeling I associate with this kind of bag. I can see myself using it for lots of things, including a brief vacation. 😊


It's super handy that you can choose to attach the shoulder strap or not. Another nice detail is that you can adjust these shoulder straps. I love the small leather pulls and extra zipper bags. 😍

You can find lots of other gift ideas on their website, like home lanterns, bottle openers, playing cards, personalized shot glasses, decorative coasters, and so much more.

Hope you like my blog.....Until next time.....Have a nice day

Where to Find Quality Jewelry - Carathea and Jools - Gold Ruby Stud Earrings

Hi There..... Do you like quality jewelry? Would you like me to tell you a little about my new gold ruby stud earrings?

What if I would tell you that quality jewelry can also be affordable? If you are buying earrings, you had better be careful, though. I can tell you quite a story about that. 😬

When I was young, I had little pocket money. People that have been reading my blogs for some time know that I am very creative and always have been. 😃

There was a shop about half an hour’s walk from home, where you could buy all kinds of creative supplies. I went there to get me some stuff to make me some fancy earrings. Cool idea, isn't it? 😁

A few days later, I put them together. They turned out extremely cute. Super proud of my earrings, I put them on for school the next day. I was certain to impress my friends, and so I did. What a brilliant move to buy those supplies. Now I didn't have to save for expensive quality jewelry. 😎

By noon my earlobes itched a little, but I thought, who cares. As I got home, I noticed my earlobes were a little red and swollen, but I expected it to pass. 😕

When I tried to put them on the next morning, my earlobes were still a bit swollen. However, I would not go to school without my new earrings, so I fidgeted to get them in. Not the best idea, because it made my ears bleed, and it took me weeks to get them back to normal. 😢

Lesson learned the hard way, but let’s get back to those cute gold ruby stud earrings Carathea Jewelry gifted me in exchange for my honest opinion. 😍

9CT Gold Ruby Stud Earrings

These fabulous 9ct gold ruby stud earrings will be a staple of your jewelry collection and a pair of earrings you will reach for time and time again. Ruby is the birthstone for July but loved by all. The claw setting of these studs adds to the look. These are very affordable, so are great for those who can only wear gold in their ears, and want a splash of color.

Details of the 9CT Gold Ruby Stud Earrings

  • Also available in Emerald, and Sapphire.
  • Materials: 9ct Gold, Ruby.

My opinion on the 9CT Gold Ruby Stud Earrings

What's not to love about this gorgeous pair of earrings? I love they are so delicate. Ruby is my birthstone, and red is my favorite color. You can pair them with summer outfits and winter if you ask me. 😄

I am keeping them in the box they sent me because I would hate to lose them. The box closes tight to protect your earrings if you should drop them. The gold protects your ears against allergic reactions. 😉

If you are still in need of gifts, they have lots of other lovely pieces of jewelry in their online shop, so pay them a visit. By the way, they won "Best Family-Run Contemporary Jewellers - South West" - Southern Enterprise Awards. Here are a few examples. 😊

Silver & Welsh Gold Horizon Heart Drop Earrings

Gold & Pink Amethyst Pendant with Diamonds


Silver & Welsh Gold Honey Bee Pendant

Silver Bangle with Blue Topaz and Opalite

Silver and CZ Starfish Stud Earrings
