Things Grace & Jim Made for Customers
Grace always likes a challenge. She is willing to take custom orders from her customers.
If something isn't already available, be sure to discuss the possibility of having something made to order. If Grace can't do it, or Jim can't do it, she will find someone who can.

Lydia's Bathroom
As many of you know the Lydia series by Robin Bitterly are about a little dog who tells her view of things human. I was doing a bathroom kit for a customer and was inspired to create
a room box based on this story. Lydia couldn't understand why Dad was bringing all the garden junk into the house into the little room upstairs. She knew is was junk because she'd
Dad say so many time. One day when it was quiet and no one was home, she decided to investigate. What she saw when she got to the little room was a huge tub with a fence
around it to keep little dogs from escaping from their bath. She decided never to go into the little room again. Mom could have it!

I finished the bathroom with lots of plants (all hand made) to bring in the feeling of the garden. Added towels and lots of bottles.
Mom is relaxing in the a bubble bath in the tub with her glass of wine and plate of cookies and her scented candles all around.

I had this vision that the cart needed a real Minks & Doodles, so I enlarged them from the back of the kit, took them to Photo Shop and made backs for them, put a stick inside of them to keep them straight, and made two dolls to go with the cart.
