On my shelf .....

..... is a pretty little street.

I have a new shelf in my sewing room
and on that shelf I have some treasure
a new addiction perhaps. DEFINITELY.

look at these mini homes ..... cute huh?

They have travelled all the way from Canada
from a clever lady who owns 
I have visited her tempting shop more than once .....

more than twice

three times to date.

Visit her shop if you dare
but don't blame me if you can't resist.

I just can't help myself
there is something very magical about teeny tiny houses.

Watch this space shelf!

Now where would you like to live?
I'm renting them out to special friends you see
so please go ahead and move right in
cheap as chips rates ..... cake is my currency of choice.
I move home almost daily, so we may bump into each other quite often
 ..... but today I am occupying no 6
the little stripy beach hut affair

As you can see my new shelf is very loooong .....
with lots of potential development space
and lets face it, it needs much more prettying up on there.

I just love how the Autumn light plays on the ceiling above.

You are amazing my friends
all of those virtual hugs and kind words are doing the trick
I had a whole day yesterday without a headache
and today I really am feeling so much better
so I'm off to my pilates class
thank you

Back soon

BIG love

  1. Hi Jooles so glad that you are feeling better. I have fallen in love with your little houses and after I leave you I am over to have a look at them, I have a real passion for houses, any houses, am always putting them on bags, having them as lamps, ornaments...........I can just see this little beauties sitting on one of my many crowded shelves. A gorgeous post Jooles thanks so much
    Lots of love

  2. So glad you're on the mend! :-)
    What a cute little street scene. Little treasures indeed!

  3. They are so cute, I will have to go and have a peek at the clever ladies shop :0) Hope you enjoyed your pilates class, I'm about to do one on DVD xxx

  4. They are very cute. I think the house with the little blue door is my favourite. Your shelf looks really pretty:)

  5. Oh wow, they are gorgeous Jooles, I can see why you were tempted! I'd like to live at No 3, the little green house, quite suitable for a green rabbit I think! :)

  6. I'll be waiting for you in the rainbow house with some tea and chocolate chip cookies. See you at 3 for afternoon tea and chat? :-) The shelf is a beauty, as are those magical shadows...that's one place where further housing development would be welcome! Cx

  7. So glad that you are feeling better now. I like the way your houses kept multiplying on this post! :) Very sweet and definitely a lot more room on that shelf for more pretties. Best wishes, Pj x

  8. well, I've had my eye on them for a while..and you persuaded me to pop over and get me one. Ooops, did I say one, I meant two! To be fair I have bought one for Al's Granny who moves into a hospice today...and a matching one for us, to remind her on a daily basis that we love her!

  11. this is so sweet! thank you everyone for your kind words! I absolutely love your pretty corner Jooles! thank you for this feature and for being so awesome :) xo

  12. I wish that all streets could look a little bit more like this one!
    I would like to live in the green one please....:-)
    Love, Mirjam.

  13. That light on the ceiling, wonderful! But also your little houses with red doors are so pretty. Good to hear you are much better now.

  14. Oh gosh, what gorgeous little houses, I love them! You will find me in the little teeny tiny one next to yours with the two hearts and a red pop by for lemon drizzle cake any time ;)
    So glad to hear you are feeling a bit better.
    Love Caroline xxx

  15. I'm relatively new to your blog, but I'd settle into the little white house with the pink heart at the end of the row. Such adorable houses.

  16. Such sweet little houses Jooles (I think I may want to move into the little green one with Vivienne if she doesn't mind too much... although I'd be more than happy with any!)
    Glad to hear you're feeling better,
    Happy Weekend,
    Susan x

  17. Hi Jooles, Those are soooo fun. I'll check out that Etsy shop soon. Hoping you're feeling much better.
    Loved the garden tour in a past post!
    Happiest October to you and your family,

    Anne and all

  18. No 3 for me ... will you take a Carrot Cake as an advance on the rent? ;)
