Photo of the day - French Madeleines

I had an accident on Sunday. Was about to hang my laundry in the balcony when I fell. The floor was a little slippery and I landed on my bum. But I felt pain not in my bum but my foot instead. My big toe nail cracked and there was some blood. The nail is still in tact, but it's bruised and painful. Actually I think it's a little loose and it's only time that it will drop off. But right now, there is some pain still. I've just went to the doctor today, and I wouldn't have if not for the walk yesterday. I went for a walk to the market and it bled a little while I was walking. By night, my feett was swollen, which prompted me to go to the doctor today to get some proper antibiotic cream for it. I would be making a trip to the art shop once my toe no longer hurts :) Need some new supplies.

Made these madeleines with air dry clay. These are not 1:12 scale dollhouse miniatures, and definitely bigger than 1:6 scale, but were requested by a customer who wanted large madeleines. I also experimented with some new painting techniques which I'm quite pleased with! The photo doesn't really show so well, but the edges are lightly crisp which I like.



  1. Love the madeleines!

    I hope you didn't hurt a nerve or something when you fell on your bum! Get well soon.

  2. Thanks Josje, for visiting my blog and for the kind comments.

    I don't think I hurt a nerve, but I'm still getting the swollen feet every afternoon...Hope it recovers soon.

  3. Your madelines are perfect! I think I'll have to go home and make some of the edible kind.

    Hope you have a speedy recovery!
