Look what I found today!!

So there I was, lugging around 10+ bags from various clothes shops through Oldrids hoping to find something sweet for my mum's birthday - which is next week and I still haven't found her anything EEEK!

I looked at all the C*******s decorations in disgust. It's far, far too early for those sorts of things! We haven't had Halloween or Bonfire Night yet (which are my milestones before I even begin to think of the 'C' word let alone pronounce the full word.)
So I walked past, shaking my head feeling like C*******s is losing the excitment and true meaning when I plowed into one of the circle stands, nearly knocking the entire thing over!!

My disgust soon changed when I realised what was on the stand! So lets forget the rant above - this has got to be an exception:::

Isn't it gorgeous?!
It's actually supposed to be an ornament for your real sized house, and you can buy stockings to hang on the 4 hooks with names on them and in different colours. I've decided to buy my family first and then I'll get the stockings.
As soon as I saw it I had to have it. It's the perfect size for my dolls house living room. It's about 3 ¼ " high and just under 4 ½ " wide.

There wasn't just this one either, there was another 2 or 3 different fireplaces, but this one suits my house best I think. I might be going back to Oldrids on Monday to get the others for future projects.

I apologise for the lighting and the quality of the photo, the colours are actually much brighter and the details are superb. I'm loving the carrot and the cat, (who I've named Tibs!)

I thought I'd share this find with you all, because this is something you do not want to miss! All the fireplaces are truly adorable and a warm cozy fireplace is perfect for those wintery nights!
This one cost me £4.99. I think the stockings are £2.99 each - bargain!

Happy mini-ing
Big Hugs
