Mini Modernista is Now Open!

Aren't these beautiful? Yes, yes they are!

Was pretty stoked to receive an email from Doris Nathanson of Mini Modernista letting her (loyal) fans know that her online store is now open.  Yes folks, that means we don’t have to wait till she posts items on eBay to get her gorgeous, drool worthy modern minis (*cough* thank goodness *cough*). Now, we can go to, ogle to our hearts content…and start adding stuff to your online cart. Much like one does at a grocery store before a major storm (sans the equally crazy folks of course).

And unlike some places that sell modern minis, her prices are super reasonable. Plus, did I tell you that Doris is super awesome and nice? (Yeah,  I know, it’s a shameless PSA, but folks, it’s the damn truth!!)

Aw man — Doris, I love you, but you’re gonna kill me with these beauties. I should be saving up for my wedding, not rob my savings account blind with these lovelies!!!  Thank god BK loves me enough to tolerate this craziness!

Oh the Joys of Second Chances

I had placed a bid on a lovely A-Frame house kit in September — only to find my euphoric feeling of smugness get crushed the following morning thanks to someone else putting a winning bid.  What made it worst was that I felt that I failed Call Small since I promised that if I won the kit, I’d share all the secrets the kit had to offer. Especially since she too is the proud owner of an A-Frame house as well.

Figured after that fiasco, that kit was packed and sent to its new owner, ready to be built and loved and cherished. While I sat in a corner sobbing bitter tears.

Okay, the last part was melodramatic and stuff. But really folks, it really did sucked.

But about a week ago, Call Small sent me a message telling me that the kit was back on eBay — same kit, same seller. Not quite sure what happened — maybe the winning bidder kirked out, or something. Or maybe the miniature gods heard my pathetic blubbering. Or saw BK getting worried at my tearing my hair that fateful morning.

But whatever the case, I jumped onto my account and put a bid on that sucker.

And waited.

And waited.

And waited…

…till about last night. After a failed waiting out for trick o’ treaters (as much as I like our current apartment complex, the lack of residents with kids = nonexistant trick o’ treaters. Sad!!), I got an email from ebay saying that I won. Apparently there were no bidders — and I won it by the starting amount. Double score! 😀

Oh happy day — now I gotta figure an explanation to BK as to why he saw me dancing on the coffee table to the tune of “Let It Whip”….

Okay, not exactly like the chick at 2:20…but if I could, damn straight I would! That’s how happy I was!
