Tiny Critters Galore

Well, I've been on a mini kick lately and have been making all kinds of new miniatures. I'm always looking for new ideas so if anyone has any suggestions, I'm all ears. ^_^ Here's a few of the newest additions to the toyshop:

First there's the new mini sheep. He's brand new to the shop so stop on by and give him some love. ^_^

Next there are the little bunnies who are a staple in the shop now. There are larger versions of them as well, but I have always enjoyed little things, there's just something special in thngs so tiny. They each measure about 1 inch tall.

The newest of them all though is this little octopus. She's about 1 inch tall and 2 1/4 inches from tentacle to tentacle. Thanks to Roses of for giving me the idea to make this little lady. ^_^

Look for more new mini critters popping up in my shop in the next few weeks. I plan on having a little raccoon and maybe even a little skunk available soon.

Bird Birds Everywhere!

It is so nice to wake up in the morning to the sound of birds singing happily to greet each other and the day. We have bird feeders all over the house and it amazes me how many different birds we get and how fast they go through the food!

Though we have some very colorful goldfinches, I always wished we had Bluebirds here. Since that won't happen I decided to make some of my own. ^_^ Here is a couple of the different versions I have, the bigger one and the teeny tiny one. Both come out of their nests too.

Of course we have plenty of robins here too. They are always fun to watch getting worms out of the yard. Especially when you see them struggle with a particularly tough one that just won't come out of the ground. They tug and tug and pretty soon they go flying head over feet with their little worm. I always get a kick out of that.

These little ladies are available in my Etsy shop almost all the time, so be sure to look for them there. ^_^
