Maria's gifts

Birthday gifts are always welcome, especially when they are from very special friends.  My dear
friend Maria from Ireland, sent me all these wonderful miniatures.

I am not a good photographer and the photos don't give enough credit to Maria's knitted and crocheted items.  I can only tell you they are lovely and well made.


Lovely pendants, two of them showing fairies.




Three fairies and a barn owl.




Very cute dragon eggs.



Lovely dresses and accessories.



The sweetest little baby boy completely dressed with bottle and blanket. In blue, my favorite color.



A wood framed wall clock and mirror. I'll have to check if it can be installed in my
camper.  It looks perfect for a marine setting.




I can find many uses for these pieces.


Couldn't wait to dress this rubber eraser doll with two of Maria's sweet little dresses.







Among other gifts received from my family, was this pot of African Violets.  It's still flowering
after almost a month.  It inspired me to make a tiny copy which you can see bellow.






THANK YOU DEAR MARIA FOR ALL YOUR VERY LOVELY AND THOUGHTFUL
GIFTS.

Blessings to all my dear readers.

A tiny fairy garden in a Fererro Rocher box


This is a gift I created for a little beloved girl named Moon.  Moon loves fairy stories and recently started ballet classes.  I used a clear, transparent Fererro Rocher box to display the little scene and
protect it from dust.

The background is a piece of card on which I painted the sky.  The walls surrounding the door are
made of egg carton stones.  The door is a piece of a large craft stick.  The magic flowers are air drying clay which shrinks about 30% while drying.  Good for making very tiny flowers.









Inside the box












The path is made of very small sea shells.





The fairy is originally a cake decoration piece which I upgraded and added wings to. She is very graceful.



The bird bath is a sea shell glued to a piece of  a cut plastic chess figure. Water in the shell is melted glue.







A warm welcome to my new follower Victoria.  Thank you for reading my blog.

Blessings to you all

A bird bath for the fairy's garden

Hello dear readers,

Today I'll show you the little bird bath I made for the fairy garden.  It will be part of the little scene I work on as a gift.






A short post today.  Just to say I'm still here and working.

Blessings to all my dear readers.

For the fairies' gardens

Hello all

I caught the "fairy garden bug".  Be careful, it's catching.

Remember the ornamental plastic flower pot I wrote about two posts ago?  I had lots of plans
for it.  here is one - a fairy garden harbor.


I used matches and toothpicks.  The flowers are DIY cold porcelaine flay and paper leaves.





The cut out pieces had to be flattened.  I put them between wet layers of fabric and used
a very hot iron to flatten them.  It worked.

The days became  hot again.  I hate to think what could be if we had no A/C. I stay a lot indoors
when it's hot.  It's the best time for working on my miniatures.

A warm welcome to my new follower, Jenni Lowcock.  Thank you for following this blog.

Blessings to all my readers.

Tatiana's gifts

Hello all,

Sorry to have neglected my blog for the last few weeks.  Real life took over.  I am with you again and want to share with you photos of exquisite miniatures created by one of our most talented miniatures artist, Tatiana, whom I am very lucky and proud to have as my very dear friend.

I received these beautiful treasures for my birthday, celebrated a week ago.

A tiny-tiny dollhouse.  It is impossible to take a good photo of the indoor.  There is a kitchen range inside the fireplace.  There is a sink unit with nano-mini jars and containers.  There is a glazed window with curtains. It really is fully equipped and AWESOME!!!!















Eggs in a mini egg carton.  Such a perfect miniature.....






My dollhouse dwellers will never go hungry.


And the little ladies will be envied.






THANK YOU MY DEAR FRIEND!!! I love your gifts.  They are real treasures which I'll cherish.

I haven't been completely idle.  Made some more fairies and accessories which I'll post about very
soon.

It is very difficult to organize a workshop day with our local miniaturists.  We live so far away from each other. in different towns.  The next meeting -  after a lot of postponing - is scheduled for end of August.

I wish you a wonderful weekend and blessings.
