Something Bad Happened: Updated

Something bad has happened.

This is not The Frugal Hostess's normal sarcastic silliness.  Something bad really did happen.

The famous, amazing, miraculous chocolate shop, Sugar-Coated Radical, was robbed last night.  The owners' children were threatened, and a neighboring shop owner was shot and killed.  All of the money at Sugar-Coated Radical was stolen.

If you like delicious chocolate and want to support a start-up business, please consider placing an order to help them get back on their feet.  You can shop here.

UPDATED: Join Yelp for a CashMob on Sunday if you're an Atlanta local.

Teensy Tiny Little Things

The Frugal Hostess bought her niece a dollhouse for her birthday and has since become obsessed (re-obsessed, if she's honest) with miniatures.  Also, the Bloggess's haunted dollhouse has inspired FruHo to create a dollhouse for herself for her future children and/or godchildren.

Some examples:

These are part of the Christmas decoration set that the Frugal Hostess made for her niece's dollhouse.

These are champagne cork chairs that make excellent dollhouse patio furniture.

TFH recently cut the tips off of the fingers from a pair of mittens to make fingerless gloves for typing (see also: FruHubs, won't turn on the heat), and she's saving them to use as ski hats for dollhouse inhabitants.  Is this going too far???
