Treasures from Italia

I've not had much time for miniatures lately, but I did receive a welcome treat from the gracious and talented Flora. We have arranged a swap and here is what lucky me got in the mail:

My favorite candlesticks, some strawberry preserves, a parcel, and a lovely box of antique mail, postcards and photographs - just what I needed!

Thanks so much, Flora!!!

Yet Another Book

Hi, all. I've been working on the open book style and have made several this way. I'm trying out the Etsy thing, so if anyone's interested in purchasing one, or seeing more pictures - click on the link below.

Have a great day!!

Perhaps many of you Europeans or world travellers have seen this - I may make a trip to Germany just to see this - enjoy the video!

More Books and some Teeeny Tiiiny Tiles

I've continued with the book making little by little and here are the results. In the end (as if there could be an end), I think my favorite method is to print book printies onto printable fabric, give it a thin coat of modge podge and then glue a front a back cover cut from cardstock. I tried using parchment for the pages (browned in the toaster oven), and also plain paper pages with a gold edging. They both work very well.

I also made a trip to Micheal's on the long weekend and found these amazing little (5mm) pearly tiles. I just HAD to find a place to stick 'em. I think they'll make a nice "backsplash" in my kitchen cupboard. These come in about 4 different colors and one size larger too.
