I have a doll house and my hobby is miniatures. I subscribe to several miniature publications and today I got the most recent catalog from HBS or Hobby Builders Supply.

Featured on page one were all the Valentine goodies. Here are just a few for you to enjoy.

The prices for a dozen one inch roses is about the same as for the real thing. Same with candies and cookies.

I always enjoy making little goodies for my dollhouse to celebrate Valentines Day, Christmas, Halloween, Easter. I get my ideas from these catalogs, but no way am I going to spend $17.99 (plus shipping) for a dozen one inch tall pink roses.

By the way, these are all to the scale of 1:12″ so a one inch rose is actually an exact duplicate of one that is 12″ tall.

I must say the Five Piece Valentine Gift set is really cute. I especially love the shopping bag and the boxer shorts with little hearts all over.

The catalog has several items that aren’t shown online. The most spectacular one is a three layer pink heart shaped wedding cake with a bride and groom on top. It is 1 5/8 inches tall and it is on a 1 3/4″ doily. $22.99. Now this is something I can’t make myself.

It is so spectacular, I actually dreamed about it last night and plan to order it today. This will be MY Valentine present to Me.Scan
