This is addictive.  I have scarcely time for minis this week but I couln't resist making this.  I followed Susi's wonderful tutorial and this is the result.

Thank you Susi! http://minieden.blogspot.com/  Your tutorial came just in time.  I made a few  ceramic plant pots which need to be filled up.

A warm welcome to two new followers:

Powder compact tutorial

Scarlett - http://scarlettminiatures.blogspot.com/, asked me how I make powder compacts.  This is so simple. I made several for my dressing table trays.

Material used:
Gold colored  7 mm (3/8") sized sequins
Flesh or beige colored fimo or other polymere clay - I used Creall-therm #42
Silver card for "mirrors".  (I use one that covers disposable food aluminum trays)
Office punch
PVA glue

Punch out a circle from the card.  Make a little ball from the fimo and flatten it to a disk to fit the inside of the sequin.
Bake the tiny disk at the required temperature.  Glue the punched out circle which will be the "mirror"  to one sequin. Glue the fimo disk to the other sequin and glue them together as you see in the photo.
That's all folks. Isn't it fun? So simple and looks so good inside a tray.

I am thrilled and happy to welcome four new followers,

De - http://delightfulminis.blogspot.com/
Sandra - http://samirasminis.blogspot.com/
Segej_Basra.  Cannot locate your blog to follow back.
Scarlett - http://scarlettsminiatures.blogspot.com/

There is a small spring giveaway in my blog.  New and old followers are invited to participate. The list will be closed on 1st May.

Have a wonderful weekend.  Blessings to all of you.

About Oscar

Birgit - http;//biwubaer.blogspot.com/ - a most gifted bear maker herself and great authority when it comes to bear matters, called my attention to the fact that my precious little Oscar is not a bear. Birgit is right!
All the facts were there, I just don't know how I missed the signs.  My dearly beloved Oscar is a MOUSE! he has whiskers and a longtail too.
Pepper sent him accompanied by his pedigree papers. Oscar is No. 478 of 1000 from the respectable home of "Mister Mouse" Deb Canham designed him - www.debcanham.com -.

Nevertheless, Oscar loves company and will stay with O'Henry the teddy bear to keep him company.

Thank you Birgit, I'll keep away the cats, but what do I do about members of my family who are unable to stop laughing at me...

Gifts from Jennifer

You will all probably agree with me that there is nothing more thrilling for us miniaturing people, than opening a parcel sent by a loving friend and finding out what it contains.

Jennifer - http://www.plushpussycat.com, one of the most generous people in blogland, sent me these precious miniatures.  I hope my photos do them justice.  Jennifer now has a series of  lovely giveaways in her blog, you just have to follow her blog and  make a comment.

I cannot believe anyone would part with this precious mama beagle and her puppies. 

Here you can see Jennifer's calling card.  Isn't it adorable.  Tiny postcards handcrafted by Jenni and
slices of citrus fruit to adorn future cakes.

Yards of pink very narrow lace and tiny seed beads.

Sewing supplies,  I have a soft spot for  these .  One of my first shop facades was  a sewing equipment store.  For some reason unknown, I had several sewing machines, most of them gifts from friends. Something had to be done with these, so I made a facade.  At that time I tried without success, making a measuring tape but couln't do it narrow enough., not even a wooden one.  These are also the first pair of scissors that  were not made by me.

Here is the facade. I had to get off the wall and clean it so you won't see how dusty it got. Everything you see inside, except the machines was done by me.  I also built the facade, the  stones are fired ceramic clay the door from popsicle sticks, windows recycled plastic mesh.

A big THANK YOU Jenni.  I love everything!!!!

We are still celebrating the Passover week.  Many of us took days off from work and enjoy a vacation.
We meet with family and friends and have a good time.  Lots of fattening but delicious food.  I am not one to complain.  I love good food!

I am happy to welcome new followers

You are, as well as all my other followers, are invited to participate in my giveaway scheduled for May 1st.
