Old piece new feature

One of the fun moments is when you open your cabinet and saw an old piece of work and thought it would be a great fit for a photo opportunity with some new stuff you've been working on. I've been painting on some milk and sugar jars lately. One set in pale pink. And when I saw my old shabby shelf, I knew it fitted in there. So I had to take a photo before mailing some items out to my customer :)


I love that the condition of all the other miniatures, despite it being in my cupboard for many years. Almost forgotten I had this.

The pale pink sugar and milk jars fit here nicely. :)

I have also been working on a potting bench. I hope to take some photos tomorrow.

Have a great week everyone!

Dollhouse Miniature Green Fern Plant

It has been a while since I last made a dollhouse miniature green fern plant.

While visiting this, I had a new discovery of why I enjoy making these so much. It occurs to me that every green fern plant has its own characteristics. No matter how many times I make it, each one is different. The crazy ferns reminded me of "hairstyles". How each hairstyle is different and gives character...that concept pretty much applies to the green fern plant. It amazes me sometimes, that how I can draw concepts in real life and somehow link it up with what I do.  It makes me giggle as I think of the ferns as hairstyle.


Yesterday I had a little mishap. As I was just a few minutes out from home, one of my shoe broke. Thank goodness I have not walked very far from home! So I walked home, changed into my comfortable pair of walking shoes and brought another pair of working shoes to change into when I reach my destination. At that very moment, I thought of the scenario of what I would have to do if my shoe broke in the middle of no where and it's hard to get home or to my destination, plus there's no shoe shop nearby. What would I do? What would you do? Please share with me in your comments! I would love to hear. For those of you who have experienced that before, I have deep empathy for you...it must have been a very tough situation.

It also occurs to me, as I see this miniature plant sitting on my desk, how these little tiny fake green ferns really lits up my desk. Especially for someone who stares at the computer working all day, green is something soothing to our eyes. And perhaps, you work in an environment where it isn't possible to have a plant or a vase of flowers nearby - I can think of laboratories! These tiny ones would be great to have around so that your eyes can relax when it's tired from staring at the screen. Best of all, it doesn't require watering! 


I hope everyone has a wonderful day!

Dollhouse Miniature Pink Anemone Flowers

Hi everyone! Finally back, and typing from my new MacBook Pro.
I have to say, that transitioning is slowly taking place. There is a bit of an adjustment period which I am just taking it day by day. I used to work on apple computers back in school, but it's still very different from what it used to be.

I'm so glad I can finally convert and edit my photos properly on this computer. :)


Bringing you these pink anemone flowers in 1:12 scale. They have been adopted :) I love the color of the planter. I forgotten how pretty porcelain doll was...


It brought me an idea for a new workshop...so I will work on that. 


I still have a bunch of other photos that I want to convert and edit properly before blogging them, so I shall work on them :)

Wishing all a beautiful day!
