Today Is The Day!!!!

This is how I get the braid for the wicker. I pin six strands of waxed cord to a pillow an turn Tessie loose.  I have to untangle her every once in a while, but as a rule, it works pretty well.

As soon as we finished all the work, Zar reappeared and helped test sit.

So did Spike.  His table manners aren't too good though.

As you can see, all of the pieces are woven and ready for upholstering.

I will wait until the winner's name is drawn to do that.  That way the fabric will go with the taste of the new owner.

Here's the rules.  There are 1010 followers as of this writing.  Those are the eligible people.  No more.

The comments will be on this entry of the blog. 

You must be one of those 1010 followers. One entry per person.

I am curious about how long people have been following and it would help me to find you on the list if you don't have a profile.  People with profiles are really helpful, because I can check your list of blogs you follow.  One way or the other, it would be fun to know how long you have been around, so please put that in your comment.

You will have until Wednesday August 15th, midnight, my time to comment on this entry only. 

Bright and early, Thursday morning, Tessie will be drawing a name...It may take a while if all 1010 people comment....I am not sure how Blogger would handle that one.  I am pretty sure that isn't going to happen though...

Good luck to you.  The winner gets all four pieces.  Chair, table, settee and footstool, with fabric of choice.  I will contact the winner Thursday.

See you tomorrow.

Hi casey,

I have been following your blog from sunny Yorkshire in the uk for over a year now. I don't remember how I came across it but I do know that ithe adventures of Tessie make me smile every day. I also take solace in the fact that I am not the only one who is constantly tidying and rearranging their minis lol. Take care

Natalie

Teresa said...

I would love to win your wicker set!! I can just imagine how many times Tessie had to be untangled! I am not sure how long I have been following you. All the time that I have had this blog. But I had a different blog before and was a follower on that one also. So it has been a few years now. Time goes so fast. Plus I see you on the Greenleaf forum board. Guess we run in the same circles. lol Hugs, Teresa

Deb Kelly said...

Once again, your work is incredible! I've been following Tessie's antics for about two years now. I love that you post everyday! You are a constant in my life, and I am always inspired! Hoping to win your lovely work!

Phyllisa said...

Hi Casey. The DAY is now here! WOW! You are a Wicker Wiz. They would look really nice in my little house I am finishing. I began following your blog after I discovered it fall 2011. I became a member early 2012 after I read all your blogs from the beginning and became a daily reader.Now it's the first place I go when I turn on my computer. So much information! I love all your entries. I still refer back to some of them.
Phyllisa

Deb Kelly said...

I've been following Tessie's antics for around two years now. You do such lovely work! I visit your blog everyday and voted for your site two years in a row ... congratulations on having the dedication and drive to keep it up! I'm hoping to win your wonderful wicker ... you truly inspire me!

MiniKat said...

Heya Casey!

I've been lurking around, watching the embroideress' shop coming together.

Stay cool! (I mean it literally. Stay inside for goodness sake *grin*)

Merri said...

What gorgeous furniture, Casey! You and Tessie have done a fantastic job! You can bet the lucky winner will be honored to display your handiwork! You're an inspiration to everyone. I can hardly wait to see what you come up with, next! HUGS!!

- Virpi said...

Hip Hip Hooray and well done! The furniture turned out so beautiful! I have been following any blogs with my profile only recently, though I have been doing it anonymously for longer. I came across Tessies adventures couple of years ago, but as I have been out for a while, I have lots of picking up to do!

Merri said...

Wow, it all looks wonderful! You and Tessie have dones some beautiful work. The lucky winner will be sure to proudly display it in their minihome!

cathy said...

I have been following your blog for a year. I love all the ideas and inspiration I find here. Thank-You for all your hard work.
Cathy

Minka's Studio said...

Thank you so much!!! I have no idea when I signed onto your blog...I'm guessing 1-4 years ago....more likely 1-2 years ago. I do have a profile. As you may have surmised, I do not have a doll house but if I win this set of furniture, I have already identified a place on my bookshelf. It would be a great way to showcase the few miniatures I have. Thank you, again, for your generosity and all your tutorials andentertaining escapdes (a la Tessie, Zar, etc)!

Drora's minimundo said...

Please count me in. Thank you and a hug, Drora

KathieB said...

I've been following your blog for years now, but my aged memory can't come up with a number. *sigh* In any event, I love your mix of whimsy and practicality and witchcraft. :)

rosanna said...

Hi Casey, thank you for this chance.
How long have I been around ? I think at least 3 years.My blog is nearly 4 years old and yours was one of the first I met. Ma be more than 3 years by now and enjoying it every day like the first one :o))
Rosanna

Pat Wilkins said...

Oh Casey... I did it wrong I guess and lost my comments (which were lovely). I've been hanging around since the beginning although I don't often say anything ... I'll TRY again. Pat

Robin said...

Your work is so inspired and you're so generous with your information and fun! To own a small peice even would be wonderful. I think I've been following for around 18months and loved every post.

PetiteMoonbeams said...

I have been reading your blog for such a long time and enjoy it so much. The wicker furniture set is so cute and I know that it took a lot of time. I follow quite a few blogs but don't have a list of them right now.

I am constantly rearranging things and beginning one thing, finding another and going off on another thing. I love that you do it, too.

Pat

Ninni Kontio said...

Hi! I think I'll just have to participate! Those pieces are so wonderful :) I tried to find the post which I saw the first time I visited your blog. I think I've been your follower at least for three moths now. So not very long time yet but I'm going to stay here as long as you're going to write this blog! :)
Hugs, Ninni

Rebecca Gaelic said...

Hi Casey, I don't have a blog but I've read your blog daily for at least the last 4 years and just recently learned how to follow it without having a blog (I'm slow I know). I love seeing what Tessie is up to and your projects are a true source of inspiration. I traveled all over the country last year with a couple of the travel kits in eyeglass cases that I put together from your instructions. Thank you for blogging, you are a fabulous artist!

Morena Ciambra Dreamartdolls said...

They turned out GREAT!!!!!! Such beautiful work!!!! Thank you for sharing the process.
I'm a doll artist and I have been blogging (not too often)for about two years. It's such a wonderful way of connecting with other with similar interests. I love reading your posts. You have taught me so much over the past years. That is the best gift of all. I'm sure that most of your followers will agree that you make us smile and brighten our day. Thank you dear.
Lots of Hugs,
Morena

zilda said...

Belíssimo trabalho, Casey! Acompanho seu blog há um bom tempo e desde que vi seus tutoriais de móveis em vime que tenho vontade de tentar. Estou criando coragem. Sou fã da Tessie também e adorei as explicações dela sobre o tapete. Parabéns e, por favor, me inclua no sorteio. Abraços,
Zilda

my mini life said...

Hi Casey & Tessie, I love your blog, I have been following your blog for about a year now. You have many wonderful ideas about making things. I am trying to get the nerve up to actually try making some wicker furniture myself. Thanks for sharing your time with us.

I started following you probably three years or more ago (I found you through Greenleaf's website). I love watching Tessie, and your blog (the only one I follow) is a daily inspiration.

SharonS said...

Hi Casey - I've read your blog off and on (the whole thing with Tessie threw me in the beginning), but according to my "bookmark" I've been reading you daily since January of this year. I've never signed up to "follow" a blog before, but did so after reading your post a few days ago, saying you were trying to get to 1000 (the count changed to 964 when I signed up). I have bookmarked a long list of your tutorials, and I'm slowly working my way through all of them. I try to share them with the other members of the miniatures club I belong to. I have become totally "hooked" on making canisters and tiny little boxes from tampon tubes! The thing I appreciate the MOST about your blog, is that you post EVERY SINGLE DAY. What dedication...and generosity. - Sharon

nicole said...

I follow your blog from Colorado and I haven't followed it very long. I started following it when I found the wonder of blogger and started my own blog. Blogs serving as my teachers since I don't have any one else to teach me. Your work is absolutely stunning and I would love a chance to win it!

Larakat said...

Your wicker pieces are beautiful. I've been reading your blog for about three months now. I stumbled upon it one day and read a few entries before going back to the beginning. I love reading about your adventures with Tessie and Zar. Yours is the first blog I check everyday. Thank you for writing about your wonderful creations.

Larissa

cat said...

I've been following for a year or so, and your blog has inspired me to take up mini-making again, and also to begin teaching my 10 yr old niece. Thanks!

Kathi said...

I am jumping up and down for joy! Today is a VERY special day indeed!
I'm not sure exactly, but I believe I started following Casey's Minis in June or July 2009. Right after I started my own little blog. :D I have read ALL of your posts, ALL of your tutorials and consider you one of my very best mini friends! I would LOVE to own this beautiful set of wicker. I know it's probably not fair of me to even enter, but I MUST, I MUST, I MUST!
Congratulations on winning the two About.com Contests! Congratulations on ALL of your many followers! I look forward to lots more years of hearing about Tessie, and Zar and Spike and all of the other fantastic people you have created!
I LOVE YOUR BLOG!!!!
Blessings,
Kathi

Case di Bambola said...

Hello Casey,

I've been following your blog for at least 2yrs and a half. Gosh, it was one of the first blog I started to follow, right after setting up my own. All I know is that reading your blog has become a daily ritual, just like reading the news :) Every day there's something to learn and enjoy from your blog!

Hugs, Lucia

Indy_Poppy said...

I think that I started watching your blog in 2010, but it took me a lot longer to become an official follower ( it took me a little while to understand how to use blogger) I rather enjoy finding out what the 'two' have been up to. It always gives me a giggle to see what their current ideas ( should I say demands) are.

Congrats on all the followers.

Jennybee said...

They turned out AWESOME! I really don't know how long I have been following your blog but I know its been a while and also have known you on the Greenleaf forum. I always look forward to reading your posts and of course Tessie's too! Now only if I could get my mini house mates to assist in builds... hmm wonder if bribery would work! Thanks for being a great source of inspiration and humor.

Stephanie Jozwiak said...

I'm Council Bluffs, IA and have been following for almost a year and a half and I found it when I typed in Mini Witches for a search. I love following the adventures of Tessie and Zar and all the other ones.

carmen said...

me gustaría participar en el sorteo...llevo en el mundo blogger poco más de un año y te sigo desde el principio...

Alicia said...

Hello! I've been following your blog for just a few weeks. I've re-entered the world of minis recently and already have 3 different houses! I love your blog, it's very inspiring to me. I've thought about hanging "under construction" signs on my houses thanks to you. :)

Kez said...

Well done on all the followers ! I love the wicker set.Ive been following for just over a year and cannot believe how much you have achieved and how little I have achieved in that time lol guess I spend too long at the computer being envious of what others can do and not enough time trying to do things myself

Nina said...

My day isn't complete until I've checked this blog! I've enjoyed it for over a year now and I believe I've read every single post. Tessie is charming and Casey's talent is impressive. So, while I would love to win the wicker, I won't mind too much if I don't because I feel like Casey gives me a gift every day through this blog.

Danielle said...

I know I've only been following you for a few months. I recently got back into miniatures and saw your readers choice award from about.com and thought I ought to check it out. It was well worth it. And this is my entry of course!

Alennka said...

Hi Casey (et al). I've been following your blog for maybe eighteen months . . . at least I think I have, Blogger is having another of those days when it tells me I'm not following any blogs at all. I've always been amazed by the things you create and would love the chance to win your wicker set.

chapchap73 said...

Your wicker work is as usual stunning! I've only been doing minis for a little under 2 years; I found your blog through the Greenleaf forum, but I've only recently joined. I love reading about Tessie and Zar's adventures:)
Sarah

KatheeVZ said...

Well I don't really know how long I've been following you and Tessie .. probably a couple of years now. I love reading your posts and hearing about Tessie's precarious behaviors. :-)

Sarah K. (The Mama Pirate) said...

I've been following a little while, maybe a year?, but not officially on GFC until the past few weeks. Before I just had the blog bookmarked and would visit every so often.

That wicker set is amazing!

Please enter me in your giveaway, and thank you!

jill gray said...

I Love your blog! I have only been an official follower for a few days but have read your blog everyday for a little over a year gotta see what Tessie and Zar are up to. My hubby will even pull up your blog for me if he knows i haven't read it yet for the day I love seeing all the things you do, so inspiring! the wicker is fantastic, you and Tessie did a beautiful job.

Jill

Neen said...

Hello Casey, I have been following you since I found the miniatures blogosphere, about eight months. I love to read about Tessie; she must be real, her heart shines through in every post, oh wait, that's your heart! Best, Neen

Mary said...

I've been a follower since I started my blog about 16 months ago but I've been reading along for about 2 1/2 maybe 3 years. If I'm very lucky and win this beautiful set I'll add the Greenleaf Greenhouse kit to my plans for Jaynie's loft so that she can have them in a sunroom. Thank you for offering the chance to win.

modernist molly said...

I've been following for about a year I count on you for my daily mini fix as I don't often have time to work on mine. Needless to say I'd love the set.

hannajaleijona said...

Hi Casey,

sorry I don't find in my profile the time I joined in, but I think it's been a couple of years now. I love how Tessie has torn the wall between the miniature world and ours. My dolls have all kinds of demands and wishes too, but they are not at all so much present in this world. Your blog is wonderful and inspiring and makes me sometimes wonder if you have more hours in your day... It's a good thing to wonder as it sometimes leads to action instead of consideration (well, procrastination really).

Thanks for the opportunity to take part in the draw!

Hanna

debbie's mini thoughts and creations said...

Hi Casey
I have been following you for about a year, I look you up every morning and you never fail to make me smile with all the adventures you have, today the sun is shinning must be a lucky omen

Alice said...

Hi Casey

I have been reading your blog everyday since April I think! I had to explain to my daughter why I was laughing so much (Tessie was up to something!)
Anyway would love to win the wicker furniture, and thank you so much for the opportunity.
Alice

Jose said...

Hi Tessie,
I´m of spain,when I discover your blog I love it. I go a little time follow your blog, because I not Internet tape-worm.
Regards for Tessie and for you :)

Joc said...

Hello Casey,I have been following your blog since 2011, but before that I knew your tutorials and all yours ideas for baskets, thank your for the help.

Susanna said...

Oh goodness.. I have no idea how long I've been following.. I have a feeling it dates BT (before Tessie) :D

I enjoy popping by about once a week to see what you all have been up to!

Jeff said...

Hey Casey, I've only been officially "following" you and tessie for a few days now but I've been a reader of the blog for years and a fan of your work since I came across you and your beautiful minis on the greenleaf forums. 

dalesdreams said...

They all came out so wonderful!

How exciting is this? I've been around off and on for the past three years?

Ascension said...

Me encantaria probar suerte en tu fantastico sorteo.
Te llevo siguiendo desde que empeze con mi blog.
besitos ascension

Ana said...

Gracias a Dios que soy tu seguidora desde hace algún tiempo, me encantaría participar, aunque no tengo blog, gracias, besos Ana (mucuy) acamarah.50@gmail.com

Doreen said...

Wow! Over 1000 followers! I have been following you since 2009. Yours was one of the first blogs I started to follow and I have learned so much from you over the years. The magic you have with Tessie inspired me to use Julie and David to tell the story of my dollhouse. And it was an honour to be considered with you last year for the the Readers Choice award. I am so glad that you won it again this year as you certainly deserved it. No one is more dedicated, consistent and sharing as you are and Tessie certainly adds a lot of fun and interest. Thank you for all you have shared.

Plushpussycat said...

Your wicker set is fantastic! Thanks for offering such a generous giveaway. It would be perfect on one of my two Victorian dollhouse porches. I've been following your blog for almost a year and a half. My fingers and toes are crossed for extra good luck! xo Jennifer

rietje woudstra said...

Hi Casey ( and Tessie and Zar and the rest)

I think I'm following your blog from the time I've started mine. the end of 2009.

It's the first I read when I start my computer in the evening.
It brings often a smile on my face!
Love the wicker set and I would love to win it.
Hug, Rietje/Rianne

Mandy said...

Hi Casey! I have been unofficially following you for about a year and a half now. (Not being super computer-smart, I didn't know that there was a way to follow you officially until last week!)
In Feb of 2011 I quit smoking. At first I just replaced smoking with eating. After just a week or so, I realized that I needed to do something more constructive. I bought a dollhouse kit for my daughter and for many months every time I wanted a cigarette I went to work on the dollhouse instead. Right away I found your blog and have checked it faithfully every day. That first dollhouse turned out great, and your posts gave me the inspiration to attempt a much larger house the second time around!

So now I'm still smoke free but addicted to minis instead!

Mandy

Kathleen Charniak said...

I have been following your blog for over a year now. I just love it. I think it came up when I googled popular dollhouse blogs? I love Tessie and her antics. Kathy C fr ILLinois

hopeful said...

The furniture is gorgeous, as usual. I just started with minis this year and yours was the first blog I came across. I found it so wonderful I went back to the very first posting from 2008 and started reading them in order so I wouldn't miss anything. I tried to read through a month's worth every week while keeping up with the most recent posts. Absolutely love your blog - it's the only one that I'm following that I make sure to read every day - no skipping! Thank you for so much enjoyment! - Marilyn

Melinda said...

I have been following your blog for a little over a year now, but just signed up officially. Ir has been a great inspiration to getting me back into minis ater almost 20 years. Even my husband asks me what the "witchy woman" is up to now when he hears me laugh out loud. I love to eavesdrop on your life.
Melinda

Chris P's Minis and More said...

Hello Casey, Tessie and Zar,
I don't remember how long it has been since I have been following I know it's been longer than a year. I am always amazed at the wonderful work you, Tessie and Zar have done!! I dream of owning a wicker set of yours I am going to try this sometime myself but I know it will look very amaturish!! so I hope I could win it thanks for you generous offer!!

aristacrina said...

You are so talented. I love following your blog and have learned so much from you. I hope you'll count me in your wicker furniture drawing. Thank you.

Lucy Coles said...

Your wicker is quit lovely.
Lucy

Sharon said...

Hi Casey, I have been reading and enjoying your blog for three years now. Yours was the first one I started following. I don't blog very much but really enjoy following everyone and drooling over their work.

Trish said...

Hi Casey! I love your wicker work. One of these days I will try my hand at it, but it won't be for a very very VERY long time... so many other things I want to learn too. I've been following your blog for about a year now, but I really don't know how I found you. I have a rarely-updated blog where I'm documenting my dollhouse fix-up project, feel free to poke around if you'd like. Your adventures with Tessie crack me up!

Trish

Pink Cyberfaery said...

Casey it is Robbie and I have read your blog a long time nit sure how long though but I admire you for not throttling Tessie at times. She is a very demanding missy. sincerely Robbie upside down in Australia

A. Wright said...

Wow, someone is going to be very happy with this drawing. I think I've been following for over 2 years at this point, maybe 3. Good luck to all and thanks for having such a great giveaway Casey :D

Heather said...

Hi! I've been following your blog since last summer... and I admire your work so much! You were the one who inspired me to start my own miniatures blog, which I've been neglecting a bit as late (I'll get back to it, as soon as I can work myself up to rewallpapering a room or five!)

I'm from a city near Houston, so I sooo get the weather thing! This summer is brutal!

Right now I'm struggling with figuring out how to make a decent birdcage! I don't really have access to powertools, so I'm doing a lot of it with glue and guesswork.

Anyway, sorry for rambling! I'd love to have a piece of yours in my chaotic, crooked dollhouse.

-- Heather

Nicole said...

What an amazing and generous giveaway, Casey! Thank you for that chance I will try my luck, count me in. I have my blog since September 2010 and your blog were one of the first ones I was following. You have such big experience and there is always so much to see and to learn when I come here :)

Steinworks said...

Those look great and I've been a follower for more than a year and a half I think because I started making mini food at that time

I remember being jealous of Tessie and wanting a Tessie of my own but she didn't turn out very well.

I used the wrong clay..the poor thing doesn't have a face cause the clay didn't hold it's shape.

Love
Marisa :)

Sarah Willis said...

I am a fairly recent follower. I started getting re-interested in doing larger scale miniatures in May and found your blog around that time. Over the course of about a month I read the whole archive. Your tutorials are great; I've already been trying out several different projects that your blog has inspired, and several more are lurking in the back of my brain.

klara said...

Hello Casey, I have been following you for about 2 years now, I think. It is one of the blogs that I follow and don't want to miss. There always something to learn or to laugh,

Jean Day said...

Wow, winning the wicker would be fantastic, so generous of you!! but I really need a wicker bed really badly to finish off my country style bedroom in my Farmhouse, perhaps Tessie wouldn't mind, LOL. Just kidding. I think I was follower 210, 40 clicks back on your list with 20 followers per click.

ultsu said...

Hi Casey, I have been following you quite awhile now - few years, I think. I love wickering myself (but am not very good at it comparing to you) and it would be fabulous to win your adorable wicker set.
Hugs
ultsu

Rhissanna said...

I'm not sure how long I've been following. I'm pretty sure I found your blog from a comment you made on another dollmaker's blog. But there was already a lot of people here!

FabShabbyRoses said...

Thank you Casey for a chance to win your gorgeous wicker! This would be beautiful on my front porch roombox! I've been a blogger since Dec 2008 and you were one of the first blogs I followed. Love reading about Tessie's adventures and I've learned so much from your tutorials. Thank you for all that you do to help the mini community learn! Sincerely, Carolyn

Katie said...

Hi Casey! What a fun giveaway! I am not entering.... because I am not a follower... Never added the function to my blog.... But you know I've been reading since the begining... remember when you didn't want comments:) lol- You've come so far... and I've enjoyed every minute of it! I love the wicker set I won the last time you had a giveaway... And I know whoever gets this next set, is going to love it, too!!!

So... Here's to many more years of blogging:)
HUGS!
Katie

Minteriors said...

I cannot say with absolute certainty who is ultimately responsible for my "discovering" your blog, but I can narrow it down to two...The Mini Food Blog, or Creating Dollhouse Miniatures. Either way, ever since I have been hooked, much like one is "addicted" to their first cup of morning coffee. When I flip on the computer, I go directly to my Favorites and scroll down to "Casey's," and like an on-going soap opera, I just have to know what you, Tessie, Zar and Nellie are up to. I'm never disappointed. I always go away with a smile on my face, something else to add to my "To-Do" list, or just left hanging until tomorrow! LOL Thank you for all of your energy, enthusiasm and "inspiration." I agree with all of the other entrants, you are an amazing talent, Casey, and it is much appreciated that you take the time to share your knowledge, experience and expertise with us. This is truly a Miniatures 101!!! I don't own any wicker, so this would be a real treat. Oh how I would love to incorporate this lovely set into one of my many porches. Let's see which one would it be...the "Shabby" chic Katherine, all frilly and feminine? The grand Victorian solarian surrounded by Boston ferns, potted palms, colorful flowers and ornate birdcages filled with chattering birds? The attached side-porch of my beloved M.E. Kitchen roombox? Poor thing, it stands totally devoid of "life" save one tall potting table with red, potted geraniums. I could go on, and on, but space is limited. I'll just resign myself to sitting on the edge of my chair, crossing my fingers and hoping. Good luck to everyone! : )

Tus trabajos son fantasticos!!Te sigo desde que tengo blog, estas en la barra lateral de mis preferidos!!Me gustaría participar,en tu sorteo!!
Besos de las Malu´s.

Marlene said...

Love your wicker and wanted to win last time, oh well fingers crossed, I have been following you for 2-3 years, love to see what the guys get up to each time, so my fingers and toes are crossed

Daydreamer said...

Hi Casey! Congratulations on so many followers! It's no wonder really as your blog is so Wonderful!!! I have been a follower for a couple of years now... and I always think I am going to try all your great ideas... but I swear I just can't keep up!!! I hope you will add me to your give-away.... even though I hardly ever leave a comment! I usually just am amazed at how many things you know how to do so well!!! Thank you for all your tutorials..... I might even get around to trying them one of these days...!

Jo Mini said...

Hi Casey,
I've been on the blogosphere only for a few months now, so I've been following you "anonymously" for a few years now (2 or 3), and officially only for the last months.
I love your work and just think you're so generous with all your knowledge... and now with your work!
Thanks for sharing with us and please count me in for the giveaway.
Jo

Kelli said...

I believe I have been following your blog since November or December of 2010. I came across your blog from the GL forum. Would love to win your wicker set, as I very much enjoy your stories and Tessie's antics! :)

walkercarla said...

Hi Casey I've been lurking around since before Tessie started but became a follower once I got back into miniatures seriously. Your post never fail to make me smile.

SJNorris said...

Casey, you and Tessie and now Zar make everything you do look oh so simple. I have gone back and read and re-read items of interst on your blog. I even have you in my rss feed so I can read you easily...

Troy said...

I have been on vacation, Sorry I missed your drawing! They look great. Good luck to the winner.
