Welcome to my blog!

Hi. I'm Pat.  I live in New Jersey. This is a new blog and hopefully it  will follow what I've been up to!  I'm into all things miniature and love dollhouses and roomboxes.  There is a single retired career woman, Rowena Bromley Reitenbach, who lives in my dollhouse so that's interesting in itself.  Her adventures are just beginning.  She loves her new Vespa.  I made her briefcase.

I'm also into dolls and have a few of them.  As the blog goes on, I'll be telling you about them all and what they get into on a regular basis.

I also like to work with clay (Primo, Sculpey, etc.) and I'm working on several projects now.

My goal is to blog daily.  We shall see.  Sometimes life gets in the way.  I will try to keep the blog subjects to miniatures and dolls.  But I may also share things I'm doing in my life, such as teaching my two granddaughters to create their own roomboxes.  I'll be posting pictures of their progress regularly.  They start school next week so it'll be sporadic, at best.

Personally, I'm married to a man named Bill, who is a retired letter carrier.  He has two children and they, in turn, have two children.  His daughter has two boys, now teenagers.  His son has two girls and they are being taught about minis.

The youngest of the two girls, Kate, 8, is designing a two-story boutique.  Since she's into anything bling and pink, that's where we've started our journey.  She wants a pink hand chair for the downstairs room.  I'm working on it now.  I'll post pictures tomorrow.

The older girl, Sydney, 10, is designing a two-story bakery.  The chairs for her upstairs cafe are going to be challenging but we'll be working on them, too.  Stay posted.

Until then,



  1. Congrats on having a blog Pat...look forward to your mini projects and stories...hugs Jazzi

  2. I'm looking forward to it, too. I am delighted to have "found" you.

    I have a few antique dolls kept from my childhood and have always enjoyed making clothes for them. When I was a child, my dolls only had what clothes my grandmother would make for them, so after I grew up and started dressing dolls for the children of friends and relatives, I always tried to make complete wardrobes for them because that's what I would have wanted.

  3. your blog is coming a long very nicely!! Come visit me too.
    Your "Joanne" projects are really nice make sure she can see them too she'll be thrilled!!
