Brimble's Mercantile - Vintage Cakes & Clock!

Some of you already know that I like antiques. So to give our bakery some soul, I found some antique cakes dating from 1900 - 1950, and a Strombecker grandfather clock from 1931. The old cakes will mix beautifully with the cakes that Megan and Devon made.
While searching for the cakes, I came across an 1890s German dollhouse pastry shop fully restored by Tracy. Check it out - it is truly amazing.

Ferris Wheel!

I am happy to report that Megan has finished building her Erector Set Ferris wheel. Bob installed the motor - click here to watch it turn! (The installation of the motor was a bit tricky - I did not record that process on video. Ahem.)

Congratulations, Megan!

Brimble's Mercantile Week 10 - Completed Exterior!

Week 9 of our Brimble's Mercantile project was spent camping in Phoenicia, NY, so I will skip to Week 10. We have completed the exterior of the house, and the girls made some fabulous billboards. The first is a "Save the Animals" sign, which is a symptom of their current ostrich obsession. The second is the "Count Olaf Unwanted" poster from A Series of Unfortunate Events. Up next: the small but important final details!

Real Cupcakes!

This week we made some real cupcakes to honor Devon's birthday. Happy Birthday, Devon!
