    Filed under Art Projects, Back in Stock, Easter, Giveaways, Miniatures, Sale, Shannon Cooper, Teri Calia

    Save an EXTRA 10% off the ENTIRE SITE! That’s 10% above current sale prices! Even if the item is already marked down as a clearance item!

    Use Promo Code: LEAPYEAR when checking out. No minimum purchase required (excludes gift certificates/cards, shipping, taxes). May not be combined with another discount code.

    The coupon discount ends at midnight (PST) SATURDAY NIGHT, February 29, 2020!

     
    What is NEW today?

    New and back in stock items… and all are miniature scale! That first Rustic Wheelbarrow would be so cute filled with mini potted plants and flowers in a garden scene. See all the items here (more than the 6 previews below)!

     
    Revisiting a Four Seasons Spinner by Teri Calia!

    It’s been a couple years but I still love this spring scene (one of four seasonal “rooms”) that Teri made in the Rotating 4 Scene Room Box. And since we’re moving on to spring goodies (and Easter bunnies) it seems the prefect time to revisit Teri’s project.

    Stock comes and goes but about half of those goodies are still available. I’ve highlighted a few in the 2 rows below, but you can view more here.

    AND since some of the items Teri used have sold out, I’ve picked out items that would work as substitutes — whether another option for the cabinet itself, or bunnies & Easter items in the same size/style. Lots of options are here and below are 6 picks from the group (and even more from this group are highlighted farther below as they’re included in today’s Giveaway)!

     
    Hooray for the Cabinet for Easter Treasures Giveaway!

    Wow… so many options… I’m starting with the Unfinished Wooden China Cabinet (with all those shelves and drawer and cubbies behind the doors, you’ll have lots of spots for tiny things)!

    Then I’m adding these items to start filling those shelves:
    - Tiny Wicker Basket with Handle
    - Set of Miscellaneous Flower Pots (not as odd a choice as you might think… beside mini potted plants used in Teri’s art project above, see the photo at right for how Shannon Cooper painted one of these little pots as a container to hold lollipops in another decorated cabinet project!)
    - 4mm Light Yellow Silk Ribbon
    - Mini Easter Basket Grass
    - Miniature Brown Bunny Rabbit
    - Mini Rabbit Figurine
    - 6 Miniature Eggs

    To enter the Cabinet for Easter Treasures Giveaway drawing all you have to do is leave a comment BELOW on this blog post TODAY or TOMORROW (the deadline is 11:59 pm PST, FRIDAY Night, February 28, 2020).

    Don’t forget to leave your (hello!) correct email address, too, so I can contact the winner; your email address does not need to be made public. Note: I’m offering free shipping, too, but only within the USA. International shipping will still apply.

    Please be patient! Spammers try to post crap here a lot so comments are moderated. So if you don’t see your post in the comments section, be patient and check back in a few hours before re-posting it, please!

    After midnight, I’ll randomly pick the winner (via Random.org).

    And don’t forget: that LEAPYEAR discount coupon works on the entire site, so you can decide to fill a cabinet with spring or any season’s minis — at a sale price!

    Speaking of Giveaways, we have the winner to announce from the last newsletter. The Alice Niche Shrines Giveaway winner is Bridget Haig (who also had the best comment: “What a darling little giveaway, who doesn’t like anything to do with Alice in Wonderland, I always look for talking flowers and bread and butter flies.”)!
