~ Feature Friday: Allie's Minis ~

This week has been pretty crazy and haven't been able to blog! I had a deadline for work, had to prepare for a trip and found a new addiction. I'll post about the new addiction later. Let's get back into the groove with this week's Friday Feature! This week, I found another cute little miniature shop, Allie's Minis! Allie is a second grade teacher and a miniature food artist from Chicago. You all know how much I love Chicago :)


Everything you see in Allie's Minis is handmade by Allie using polymer clay. She has dollhouse minis like cakes and other kinds of food. Look how cute these cakes are!!! I love them!


Everything is so detailed. Look at the slices of bananas, strawberries and kiwis on this fruit tart. I think the bananas look very real!


She has other food items too like this yummy Turkey Dinner. I love how she gives you size reference with coins and do it so inconspicuously. Most of the time, I think coins make pictures look tacky, but she does it so well! You hardly notice the coin there.


Of course she has my favorite sushi too! Just imagine rolling the polymer clay into little balls for the masago! This takes a lot of patience.


She also makes charms and earrings. I know you want these cute slices of carrot cake on your ears!


She has 9 items in her sales section right now. These are a great deal! Get them before they are gone!


Allie has a wonderful blog too! Don't forget to follow her if you want to keep up with her miniature food making adventures. I hope you like her shop as much as I do. Don't forget to click on the pictures to get to the listings or her shop. And of course, don't forget to comment here to show her your love!

I love products like these! I just bought my first miniature from a similar seller, so I'm very curious to see it up close when it arrives! I'll have to check out this shop as well! A great feature indeed. I found your blog on the Etsy forums and would like to be considered for a feature sometime. :)

Terrific blog, and Allie's work is amazing! It's making me hungry--too bad I don't have anything nearly as tasty-looking in the house!

My shop is small right now, but I plan to grow, and think my critters are pretty cute.
