I'm feeling a bit green ;)

nope, not seasick :D. But as you might have noticed this scene, as did my last two, has a green background (although the last and this one not very noticable, while they're quite green in person), so I guess I'm a bit in a greenzone. I've always loved green, mostly the mossy and olivekind of shades, but never used it in mini-scenes before recently. I like it!


the wooden fruitbowl - it's maple - is not what I had in mind for this scene as you can see below. But remembered having it again and finally having some fruit because of that other bowl, just wanted to try this one out too. It turned out I liked it even more..

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.
