Hello Everyone  :)   I have been trying to finish my toy shop and I am at last getting there :))) Most of the items in the shop have been bought or given to me as gifts.  I have made a few things but I would like to make a few more so I have left a little room for items that I hope to make if and when I get the time lol.  A few of the toys that I received as gifts will also go into the nursery of my house.
My back shelves.






Another shelf made by me.


The right side. I still have to finish the counter for this side.

With shelves in place.

I found this little bike in 2euro shop its in scale and  the pedals even turn the wheels. It also had another set of handlebars. A bargain don't you think ;)   Here it is in the shop sorry about the bad picture.

I still have some more to do to this shop but its getting there don't you think :)
I have also been doing some knitting. Two jumpers for an adult doll and one for a child. They are not perfect but I am rather pleased with them.

Thank you all for your visits and comments.  A Big Welcome to all my new followers thank you for your visits.  Don't forget my Give-Away you still have a little time to participate and thank you to all the people that have entered your lovely comments warm my heart.
Hugs to All My Friends

Everything is so cute! I love the little castle over to the side and the ship and the dinosaur---I really love it all. I had to make all the pictures bigger so I could see it all :) Your little jumpers are so adorable also- how can you see the stitches?! Very nice Maria ♥

Hi Maria, I missed seeing you recently and was starting to worry. Now I know you've been having fun with your minis--I should have known. ;-) Your toy shop is so darling. I love the little dollhouses so much, but everything is so cute. Great deal on the bicycle, and your jumpers are really sweet. You are so talented, and in so many areas. Thanks for brightening my day with your post! xo Jennifer

Muchos juguetes tienes ya en tu tienda. Se ve fantástica y algún niño estará encantado con ella, seguro, sobre todo con esa bicicleta tan mona.

Hello Maria,
You know I love your collection, but I have to say the furniture you made in the shop is wonderful. You made it look well aged and very charming. You really did a fantastic job. The toys are wonderful, and I am jealous, in a friendly way, at your needlework skills. The jumpers are wonderful.
Big hug,
Giac

Велосипед действительно находка. Вы связали три кофты!!! Это очень сложная работа. Я недавно вязала маленькую шапочку, и так устала.
Хороших выходных!
