CASPER

Finally thinking about bears again and made this wee one to try and get back into the swing of things.  This is Casper, 3 1/4 inches tall, hand dyed golden brown Shulte mohair. Casper is stuffed with excelsior, stainless steel shot and glass beads combined. He feels quite dressed up and is looking for a girlfriend for Valentines day! He has glass eyes, waxed nose, wool felt paw pads and his fur and paws are mildly distressed.  Casper wears a fancy Edwardian collar and a bow.  He is well prepared for a girl friend, waiting to give her a red enamel metal heart, which opens.  Casper comes    with a small Lindt chocolate tin, for display.   Shipping is $20.00 to most locations in the US and Small Package Air Mail tooMe areas in Europe.  Please email for more details.  All prices in US dollars.

Playing With Wood

 So, I am still playing with my new wood burner.   These were a true experiment - I bought these simple pine discs to experiment on but found out I love them. I don’t know what it is that draws me to all things ‘tiny’. I can see mistakes, I make - I am hyper critical of anything I make. I can also see these being perfect for a small feather tree - they are tiny (1 1/2”) and so light. I can see things I would do differently, but I am always critical of my own work.  I am offering them for sale, in case any of them strike your fancy.  I am searching for slightly larger discs, so stay tuned. If you are interested, please message me here
SOLD  OUT

SOMETHING NEW

 These are my newest interest - I saw some small wood burned pieces that I loved and they inspired me to try to make some.  Our daughter had just list her beloved rescue pet and I thought these might be a nice way to remember pets we have loved and lost.  These are my first attempts and I am pleased but realized quickly my burner wasn’t what I needed. They are 1 1/2” in diameter and look lovely on a Christmas tree or small feather tree. I have just purchased a lovely new machine and am excited to try it out.  My mind is full of possibilities - perhaps more detail and maybe some colour!  I am offering these for $25.00 US to anyone who might be interested.  Shipping would be $5.00 US. If you are interested, just email me here .

NEW CREATIONS

I absolutely love the sentiment of Christmas - not the hype or greed or the ‘over the top’ ness of it all - just the warmth of the season.  I have made Christmas ornaments of all kinds, over the years and I have been playing with them again - finding ways of remembering family that has gone before us and things that make us happy.  These ornaments have made me re-visit things I learned long ago, and they were a joy to make.  I would love to start selling them to people who want a way to keep memories of friends, loved ones or even a cherished pet, close, during the holidays.  I am posting front and back views of each ornament.  Most of the embellishments are hand made.   I would love to know what you think and if you have an interest, just email me at:  miniatures97@gmail.com. ☺️
