tiny tuesday

Let’s talk about how tiny things are so much more awesome than anything else in the world. Why are tiny things so funny and cute? I’m not sure if it’s just me, and it’s definitely rubbing off on my kids now too. Together we ohh and ahh, squeal in silly voices at just about anything that is scaled down to a tiny size. It’s ridiculous and I don’t care. Tiny and detailed object are even better.
Here’s a sampling of my favorite tiny things at the moment:
mouse in sweater
This traveler mouse by Johana, available on Etsy, is absurdly tiny. Take a look at her other critters too- some wearing glasses, sweaters, carrying books…

felt bear necklacePeace felt warrior necklace also on Etsy by catrabbitplush. The beauty is in the clever details and the size- about 6 cm by 6 cm.

firebird
Made by the talented Alice Mary Lynch, a commissioned piece titled ‘the firebird’ wears a skirt made from a traditional Russian vintage costume, red tulle petticoat, embroidered socks, plaited golden hair and vintage feather brooch with multi-coloured stones. Very impressive work.

small character dolls
I’ve been following Jess Quinn’s blog for awhile now, she also has an Etsy shop. I’m so inspired with her mad/rad art, sewing and creative skills. I wish I lived in England so I could attend one of the shows where she sells her dolls and be starstruck.

crocheted cactus
These little cacti are reason enough to learn how to crochet. Who wouldn’t want one of these as a gift!? The pattern is available at Little Things Blogged if you’d like to give it a try. I will be attempting to make these very soon.

felt cat with purse
I think it’s the somewhat mournful gaze- not to mention the accessories- that got me on this fat cat. I don’t have any details though, the website is all in Russian.

So, go ahead and adore all that’s tiny on this terrific tiny Tuesday!

with a needle in hand

Been loving unique and artistic embroidery lately, I think I blogged about it last week too. I can’t seem to help myself, it’s so intriguing, inspiring and the wilder the subject matter the more fun it seems. Simplicity rules in my book.
