minis






what is it about miniatures
that we love so much?
these tiny paper works 
were so much fun to make...






my desk is littered with tiny pieces...





there are 9 of these...
in my 




they are 2 x 2 on 3 x 3 and they all have antique post marks, scrap 





and to give you an idea of what they would look like framed.. above
in a 7 1/2 x 7 1/2

of course they are unframed





and because they can fit into an envelope, I would be happy to ship them
everywhere...


it is rainy and wet here, but things are beginning to bloom
Spring seems to be finally on the way...
but these happy little pieces
made me
feel
as though Spring is really here!


C4N!





P. S. if you missed my sale it is still going on... ciao, ciao!

I save little bits and pieces from larger projects too...I never know what they will become ...but they are great when things begin to slow down. Thank you for all your inspirations. Beautiful......today it is cold and rainy again so you are a breath of Spring! Peace, Mary Helen Fernandez Stewart

Each one is oh so lovely and you're so right about little things have a charm about them dear Cat! I too seem to hang on to the tiniest scraps of paper ... I salute you for using some of yours :)

Happy Spring is arriving for you...everything is blooming outrageously here in N VA ... even the lilacs and Dogwood are doing their thing ... I would like to slow it down a wee bit ... enjoying each blossom as it appears!

Happy Weekend dear one

Everything has been said. they are truly elegant. I'm always drawn to miniatures so much so that I work mostly on small canvases. XO

I also like to work small sometimes.. miniature little pieces of treasured papers moved around until they are glued.. as yours do look like spring is coming.

I have a thing for small scraps, too. These are lovely, and your composition is perfect in each and every one.

I can feel Spring in these tiny pieces and am not surprised that they have all gone to new homes.
