Miniature Children's Books

I loved making these! Although it took days to redo every page in Photoshop and line it all up and make it all fit, print them out and then put them together!! But I loved doing them. I have done over twenty or so and I'll put them up when I can in my shop. All children's books from in and around the turn of the last century. Every page is printed and some you can read without a magnifying glass. Some of the books have sleeves while others are fixed . The illustrations in some them are so beautiful. Can't beat books.

More Lovely Little Plates

I love this design. My new favourite.I haven't been able to get much work done. Both my boys have been ill for the last two weeks plus I have had a few orders to fill. But I did get some plates done last night. I found some lovely smaller plates and I am now doing some settings. I love this one below. A child's birthday plate. Also a cake stand that was so accepting of a decal that I kept checking it for I was sure I had done something wrong!
These are all available in my Etsy shop.

Beautiful Tiny Butterflies

I came across these most beautiful dainty butterflies quite by accident surfing the net. I knew I had to have some. Julia Cissell is the artist and her work is beyond words. She has an Etsy shop called God's Flying Flowers which is currently undergoing a renovation. I bought four of her tiny masterpieces. Do be so very careful when the parcel arrives. She ships them in little lidded containers all lovingly padded but a breath of air can make them vanish. I pull them out for to show people and use tweezers. When I have finally completed Warm Thatchum and have the acrylic case made up only then will these little beauties come out. I so wouldn't want to lose one! They are so beautiful.
