Back from the beach...

I've been absent for a while since I've been on a beach trip and then had to work once we got back without any breaks. @_@ So not much time for blogging and I still have a few things to catch up on but I figured I'd share a few things before another month goes by. >.>

I found a couple cute miniatures at some antique shops while at the beach.

Blue Enamel Coffee Pot and Teacup

This cute little tea cup just had to come along with me, I mean, look at how TINY it is. <3 It's a pewter piece that is hand painted using this pretty blue color.

But I must say that the blue enamel coffee pot is my favorite. It goes perfectly with my love of old and woodsy chic (that made no sense I know ;P). I wanted a nice accent for this set so I made these little place mats and napkins. I'm thinking of making some more in some different colors.

Blue Enamel Coffee Pot and Donuts

Lastly, I also bought these cute matchboxes to make little suitcases out of them. Hopefully I can work on these in the next week or so. :3


And just for fun, an action shot. :D

Well it happened, I burned my last batch of polymer clay. T_T

Antlers (burned)

Here you can see the antlers didn't totally burn. Actually, I kind of like the look... hmm. I can't decide if I should just glaze them as is or try to paint the flowers. :/

Unfortunately the other figures that were in this batch didn't come out as well.

My first burned batch

Let's see if you can make out the charred remains:

- Antlers
- Unicorn horns (I think I can still paint them)
- Macaroons (I'll just toss these, too many little spaces to fiddle with)
- Cigarette (A sort of "request" from a friend, again I think paint might fix it)

Oh well, you win some, you lose some. I'm thinking tiny crochet for the next post, I've been wanting a lacy capelet for my tiny BJD (ball-jointed doll). :D
