Today’s giveaway is from Anna of Cozy House Curios. She makes many things including adorable dollhouse miniatures! (Everything in the photo above is tiny!!) I asked Anna to introduce herself here today and share a little about her business with all of you!
Hi! My name is Anna and I’m the owner of Cozy House Curios on Etsy. I’ve been married to my husband, Fr. Benedict, for 17 years and we have six children, the first five who are 15 down to 7, and then the caboose, Miss Moppet, who is 13 months. We’re homeschoolers and bookworms living in south Mississippi and ministering to a small Orthodox mission here.
I grew up with a dollhouse and loved making my own miniatures for it, and also enjoyed sewing for my dolls. When I had children of my own I continued making miniature blankets for their doll and dollhouse beds and crocheting tiny sweaters. I’ve made ornaments for nieces and nephews for Christmas and have made countless baby items as gifts and for use with our own babies. Time and time again I’ve heard, “you should open a shop and sell that!” When we moved to Mississippi five years ago we were able to realize our long-time dream of having me at home with the children. It finally seemed possible to put more time and effort into creating. At first I opened a small shop, Hand Crocheted Blessings, directly from my blog featuring baptismal blankets and matching bonnets. After a long delay, I finally opened Cozy House Curios on Etsy less than two months ago.
While the items in the shop are primarily miniatures and doll items, I also make baby knits and the latest hit, a crocheted toy censer. I’m liable to pop just about anything there so you have to go back and keep looking! You can see many more items I’ve made, quilts, baptismal blankets, sweaters, and more, on my blog, Praying with my Feet. Eventually some of those things will work their way over to the shop. You can find Cozy House Curios on Facebook, and I am on Ravelry as well as matushkaanna.
It has been a blessing to have a way to help support our family while staying at home with the baby and helping homeschool. I’m delighted to be able to help support Ginny as well!
Anna is offering one Small Things reader a hand knitted baby set including a baby hat and booties. The hat will fit from approximately birth to 3 months, and the booties should fit from birth to 6 months. They’re made from pure, washable, stretchy merino wool (the leaf is acrylic). The booties have ties so they’ll stay on!
