Coat hook for a dollhouse?

Hi everyone!

I want to share with you something I have been working on and maybe get some ideas. I don't know if this will be something that ends up in the Etsy shop or what, but I was playing around the other day and made this:

It's about 1 1/8" at its longest. I think it would make an adorable little coat hook in a shabby chic cottage! (Or maybe fancy curtain rod hooks?)

I got these little resin pieces from a shop online (I think it was Beady Bom Bom creations, but she closed her store) and they have been sitting in my craft area for a while trying to figure out what they wanted to be.
I had bought some clip-on earring findings at the craft store as I remember reading about their many potential uses in several places throughout the mini craft world. Well, I was playing around with it and got the hook above (on the left). There's a little hook on these which needs to be cut and filed off (I should pick up some metal files) for a smooth edge, but they are relatively easy to work with.

Here are the specific earring backings that I picked up (at Michael's):

I might make more of these and maybe even do a tutorial if someone is interested. They are exceptionally cute!

Oh, I also added some new stuff to the Etsy shop today (including the cinnamon rolls!) so please check it out here.

I won!

Apparently, I have had a wonderful stroke of luck as I won Felma's giveaway and she (very very quickly) sent me my prize! The prize was one of her BEAUTIFUL dresses! I am so happy to have it to add to my collection and I am looking for just the perfect spot. :) But here are pictures!

So pretty! :) THANK YOU, FELMA!!!!

Sweet rolls and forsythia

Hi everyone! It's a beautiful spring day today. We had a refreshing rain and then plenty of sunshine with a nice breeze.

I had to work yesterday, so I spent today relaxing and making things. I was inspired to make some clay cinnamon rolls. I haven't yet decided if I am going to sell them, and if I do, how I am going to package them, but here are some pics!

I also worked on a kit from True2Scale. A while ago, I bought a kit from her to make an enamel-style pot (out of paper) and several forsythia branches. I decided to put these together and decorate one of my dollhouses with it (or maybe the French-style roombox). :)
