Easter's Almost Upon Us !

Well, before we all get totally eggbound this weekend, I thought I'd post a pic of one of my all time favourites with my followers . . . these are teeny-tiny; and are so pretty!

I have now recovered from Spring Miniatura {:OS - but - my feet are still a bit sore, hope everyone that visited enjoyed it; and thanks to all of you who popped by to say 'hello' and saw my minis 'in the flesh' and bought some {:OD Thank you, thank you, thank you . . . I now have to build up more stock for the next one . . . sharp intake of breath! Bye for now then . . .

Tomatoes on the Vine . . .

Now I'm not really sure why it's been fashionable to market tomatoes as 'tomatoes grown on the vine' etc., as - aren't they all grown on the vine . . . ?

Whatever, I succumb to creating them now and then; and it's not an easy task I can tell you! But, well worth the effort when you see the end result - hope you like them too!

P.S. I'm frantically trying to get as much as I possible can together for Miniatura in a few weeks' time . . . so I'll be a bit hit and miss with me blog - what do you mean - 'she is anyway' - LoL! I know {:O) Bye for now.

Mediterranean Veggies . . .

I know, where have I been - panicking for the most part! I have a show at the end of the month; and I NEVER feel as though I have enough mini's - do we ever LoL!?

Anyhow, just thought you may like to see this lovely little display that's 'up for grabs' this week; and the DH turned the Olive wood platter the veggies are fixed to . . . I love the pitting I managed to create on the Aubergines - really pleased with those - Egg Plant I think I should also call them {:O)

Bye for now!

P.S. - Thank you Kiva, Karin and Glenda! For the award . . .

My IGMA Submission Pieces . . .

These were the pieces I submitted to IGMA for Artisan evaluation last October; and yes, most of you already know I did receive my Artisan status . . . should have posted this ages ago!

You'll have to click on the image to enlarge it - then you'll be able to see the little displays even clearer . . .

What the . . . ?!?

I just had to come back and mention the 'security feature - type in these letters before posting a comment box' . . . can you believe it came up with the word  'pumbies' for me to type in a few moments ago LoL?! Sounds like a 'google whacker' ROFL - we'll have to post the funny one me thinks . . .

Valentine's Day? Is it that long since Christmas!?!

Now I know I've been away from here for a goodly while, but after spending the day in bed ill on Christmas Day, recovery seems to have been in fits and starts . . . this pc I use - it's up in the converted loft space; and soooo cold, during the snowy, hard frost weather we've been enduring - that I couldn't bear to be up here! Anyhow, it's warming up nicely now; and so I hope to indulge my blog some more; and more frequently {:O) Meantime, I'm sure Kiva's been keeping you entertained, I said in previous posts that 'Kiva's blog will be more entertaining than mine' and it is!

Anyhow, for the more romantically inclined of you out there, here's a little something I created for this weekend's special day . . . catch you soon!

My husband creates the wood turnings BTW - and this one is Ebony - mine, mine, mine! Cheesecake is up for sale though {:O)

This is sooooo tiny! Love it! Only have the one though, I don't enjoy making 'sweet treats' as much as the other minis I create . . .
