Here I'm again, its been along time.
After a very sad time I lost my inspiration to do minies. In the meantime, Dax did very well, he likes to swim in the bad!!
Now I thought it was about time to do minies again, and I found my desire and inspiration back!! I started with making a new home for my ladies-store, it was in a frame and became very dusty from waiting for me.

I built a new wall unit in a viewing box, I still have to make the drawers. I also like big windows in the front, so I can show a lot off ladies things. Yes I have fun again play again with minies!!
see you soon


  1. Marlies, I am so glad that you are back. I wondered what happened.

    Dax is so cute! You must be proud.

    The ladies-store is coming along nicely. I love the new shelves. Keep up the good work and keep us posted with your progress.

  2. Oh Marlies, I am so happy to see you back! I was showing a friend how to make the pitchers the other day and I wondered how you were. I prayed that things were well with the baby and I see that they are!

    Your ladies shop looks very nice and I am eager to see its progress.


  3. Ooo Marlies welkom terug, fijn om weer iets van jouw te zien.
    En wat is de baby alweer groot geworden, wens je veel knutsel plezier met je mooie winkeltje, groetjes Gonda.

  13. O Marlies wat fijn dat je weer inspiratie hebt en ik ben blij je weer te zien.
    ik had er al over gedacht je eens een mailtje te sturen, maar het was er nog niet van gekomen en nu zitten we zelf in de zorgen.
    Ik hoop over een poosje alles weer te gaan volgen.
    Groetjes Jody. (

  18. Fijn dat je er weer bent. En heel goed dat je de tijd hebt genomen om weer de oude te worden en je inspiratie terug te krijgen.
    Er zijn van die dingen die je niet af kunt dwingen.
    Goed dat je er weer bent en ben benieuwd naar je volgende posts.
    Prachtige kleinzoon heb je.
    Groetjes en nog een heel fijn weekend.

  19. Marlies, congratulations for your lovely grandson is incredible. Best wishes for your family

  20. Welcome back Marlie! I´m curious to see your work!
    Your mini-baby is so beautiful...he is your best creation!

    Best wishes for all

  21. Dear Marlies, you do not know me: I opened my blog when you had already stopped the activities of your post...
    Everywhere I saw the photo of your grandson inside the incubator and always I asked if there was any news ... I'm recently become a mother and I am very sensitive about certain things...
    Now, I'm really happy to hear that everything went well: the baby is beautiful and you, of course, you'll be a grandmother full of new inspiration :-)
    I send you a big hug from Italy

  22. It is really really good to see you back, Marlies!! Little Dax is just adorable!

  23. Welcome back, Marlies. Wat een lief knulletje heb je. Fijn dat het zo goed schijnt te gaan met jullie na zo'n lange afwezigheid. Je roombox wordt mooi. Ik heb ook een modezaakje dat ik eigenlijk nog eens op mijn blog moet zetten, maar wel heel anders als die van jou!

  24. OH Marlie, me alegro mucho de tu regreso y de lo precioso que está Dax. Es bueno para todos que las minis te vuelvan a inspirar.

  25. Hoi Marlies, is alles goed daar ?
    December is een drukke maand misschien is dat de rede.
    groetjes Marja

  26. Hi Marlies, I missed getting notification of this post so I'm a bit late visiting. Little Dax is looking so great!

    I'm looking forward to seeing the shop come to life.

    I wish you are wonderful Christmas time :)

  27. Marlies hello, how are you? and how is Dax??
    this will be his first Christmas, I imagine your excitement! :))
    I wish you and your family a Merry Christmas and a fantastic New Year, full of joy and new minis!
    kisses, Caterina
