I love teeny tiny things. When I was a kid I would make dolls out of paper matches, twist gum foil wrappers into dolls and let them all live on a leaf. When I was very young, I had a doll house. At this time, I have no room for a doll house but I do love them and have gone to many miniature shows to see them. I like N scale trains as well.
These days I make and collect teeny tiny dolls and animals. There is no rhyme or reason to the types I make or collect. In my miniature collection there are brass, glass, cloth, metal, china, ceramic and polymer miniatures. The problem is they are all difficult and/or time consuming to photograph.
Here are some examples of come cloth mini dolls and animals that I have I made. The doll in the pink dress, Edie, is 4 inches tall so you can judge the scale by that. The dress on the spoon is a second dress for the little one in tan calico. She is 2 1/8 inches tall.
Some look at life through a telescope and others through a microscope. I think that I am the microscope type!
What type are you?
Enjoy your day and your holiday weekend!
