My Prize From The Shopping Sherpa!

So a few posts back, I mentioned that I somehow managed to win two different blog giveaways in one week (Again-Such a lucky week-anyone know how I can do that again?).

I already made a post about my prize from Fabulously Small, so now it's time to talk about what I received from the Shopping Sherpa;

All the way from Australia,  Anna Maria sent me this lovely plastic kitchen set that she picked up at a recent show. You can read more about it, by clicking here to read her blog post.

The plan is to use these for Billy, a dollhouse I already have built and am in the middle of decorating, but recently I've been cleaning and it's turned into a catch-all. No really, there's even an octopus in there;

(just a side note, this little guy was a gift from an IRL friend. 
How awesome is it that someone sees a plastic octopus and thinks, 
"Kyle would love this"? ^_^ )

Ok, so now that you've heard my excuse for why my little house is such a mess, here is quick scene using the kitchen set, which I promise will look less disheveled after I finish cleaning up everything in my world (big & small);

If you're a regular reader, then you know where the plates and conveniently on hand "Fruit salad" came from. The penguin is also a regular, guess he lives here now. He's an adorable and top heavy creation I made out of Sculpey before I had any idea of what I was doing. XD The pretty green salad bowl is one of those paper pottery bowls I still have to do a tutorial on. I keep saying that I'll talk about that room divider I also made (I will, soon). Table/chairs are super old dollar store purchases. The sink unit is a mystery piece that was found inside a Strawberry Shortcake house (sadly no longer with us), that someone was throwing out.

Thank you again Anna Maria for the prize, I love this kitchen set, and am looking forward to finding more ways to use it in my mini scenes. ^_^


  1. Hello Kyle,
    Congratulations on the great prize. It looks beautiful in the hutch.
    Big hug,

  2. Congrats on your win, it looks right at home on that Hutch but I have one question..does the octopus fight with the penguin or do they get along and what are their names?


    1. Thank you. ^_^

      Hmm, good questions. I'll have to get back to you on that...

  3. it's a cute set. congrats on the win. :)
