sugarsweet

I made this working sugar pourer! Well to be exact: I made the spout. From tealightmetal and it's of course the part which basically makes it one :D. The rest is a glass miniature-perfumebottle* & a closed metal jewelerypart (endcap) that I made a hole in for the spout to go through. It can actually 'pour' the sugar (with a little help by tapping the bottle), the 'sugar' being regular white sand I've grinded to get it very fine. It's so fine, that to the naked eye it looks like powder, but as you can see in the photo on the right, they're still 'sugar'chrystals. Just very tiny and - probably - about the right size for miniature.


and as I've done with my other working miniatures, I've made a video of it being used! I have so much fun making those :D.

knitted mini-bliss

I found this lovely knitted miniature cardigan on Etsy not too long before Christmas and treated myself to it :D. Made by the wonderful Frederica from Linden Rose Miniatures and recently received. Isn't it gorgeous? Frederica also has a blog that's worth taking a look by the way.

find the differences

I just have to share this with you, it's too funny. Well sort of.. ;p. The miniature babyhats on the photo's below are the same one.... :D. Yes, they are. At least according to the miniaturewebshop-owner. The reason she says I think I got a different one than I ordered is just because of the ribbon in the right one....
yeah right, and I'm a dinosaur with a tiny brain :D haha!

two-piece scene

last year I've shown a small squared sneak-peak of this almost finished and now it is!


scenes don't get more sober than this I guess ;). But I think it has all it needs.

no more!

there's something I'd like to change back to how it was in my blog before.

over time a number of you've read things I wrote about my personal life. Something I never did before that, or ever intended to do. I would normally never have felt the need for that either (it had been my life for many years and nothing new), or to mention/remind that I made something a long time ago when shown something in times I hadn't been able to make anything or whatever*.

the only need I've had at first and for quite a while was to show what I'm very passionate about & whatever I'd been able to make and have always been so very proud of. It had always been enough for me to know how incredibly special that was and why.
