Shopping

We are going through some hot and humid summer days, although  not as bad as last year.
It's much more fun to entertain the young members of our family, than to sit down making miniatures. The children go back to school at the beginning of September.

I'm only making flowers.  Sometimes, when I'm not satisfied with the results, I throw away a whole
week's work.

Yesterday,  in Tel-Aviv, I was lucky to find some stuff which I want to show you.

Colored thumbtacks and beads  which can be made into small canisters.  Two little prams, toys for the nursery or for a shop.  Rings - raw material for jewelry boxes.





Glass seed beads packed in, yes you guessed it, square, clear plastic bubbles which can make perfect Ferrero Rocher boxes.  I have a plan to use the packages for other purposes too.  The beads will go
to my daughter Galia, who makes beautiful bead jewelry.



Metal beads, jewelry findings, tiny silver square frames (1/48" picture frames) and two perfect quarter scale sewing machines.


Later on, I'll show you to what use they served me.

I use this opportunity to welcome Emma and thank her for following my blog.

And something not mini but musical to enjoy for the weekend. The Typewriter by  Leroy Anderson (1908 - 1975), American composer of short, light concert pieces.  This particulr orchestration was performd in June 2011 by members of the National Orchestra and Chorus of Spain, Madrid.  The "typewriter" soloist is Alfredo Anaya.  Watch his expressions and actions.

Have a wonderful weekend.

  1. Dear Drora here in Italy continues the humid heat and therefore it is always wet with sweat. Your purchases are many and all very useful to accomplish so many things.
    Hugs, Manu

  14. Great finds - I'm curious to see what you're doing with these new treasures. And thank you for the link, that was so much fun. I didn't know this was wiritten by Leroy Anderson - and so far I only knew this in a version with Jerry Lewis... but Anaya was fantastic. I only wonder - do your little ones still know what a typewriter is? *LOL*

  28. Great finds, Drora! I understand how much more fun it is to spend time with children before they go back to school. Even the weather calls for action and movement, whereas the winter months are great for quiet pursuits like reading and making miniatures. I agree with Sans: it will be fun to see your mini flowers and the other projects you make from these goodies you found. xo Jennifer
