Working on a special inclusion to go with the pajamas giveaway...will show you when done.
In the meantime, here are some pics of my most recent mini purchases:
Mini Books in Cardboard Box with Shipping Label

I made a cardstock shipping box for the books I purchased
from Carrie Lavender of "A Lavender Dilly".

Also bought some lovely plates and an apron.

These will go into a vignette with an old 1920's Roper Kitchen Stove, Monitor Top Fridge and Porcelain Sink. I adore the birds plate as I love to watch birds; birdsong is one of my favorite sounds.

She makes wonderful mini things!

The striped label on my carton came from this site:
These are presented in "fillable" form or as blanks in Adobe Reader format.
I filled in one of the labels with Carrie's partial address along with mine, then used the select tool to highlight one of the labels, took a snapshot (under the edit dropdown) pasted it into WORD then adjusted the picture to the size I wanted using the rulers at top and bottom as a guide, then printed.
LOTS and LOTS of great labels for all sorts of things. I still haven't explored all of them.
