This pretty little thing measure about 5"
and was created by Julie of Celtic Juju
a wonderful artist who also created several of the
beautiful, larger faeries that dwell here.
A few years ago, Julie began creating miniatures
and I purchased this one 'naked' to dress myself.
As you can see, she is pose-able...
I just love her and have a gossamer outfit in mind
for her made with silk chiffon and some vintage laces.
She is the first Faerie for Faerie Tale Cottage
Next is a little blue faerie that I sculpted myself,
or shall I say 'started' about six years ago.
She was one of my favorites at the time, and for some reason,
I put her aside not knowing exactly what to do with her.
Now I see she was meant to be part of the Faerie Tale Cottage faes.
She is a bit more delicate than the fae above created by Julie,
but her head is about the same size.
I must decide on her hair or if she will wear a cap of some
sort.......in my 'mind's eye' I believe I know what she will
look like in the end.
Now this one is a tiny bit larger. When I sculpted her (about the same
time as the blue fae) I had in mind an Ice Queen Faerie.
I even purchased a gorgeous crown for her
(which I will show you later on)
and felt she would be totally in white.
Now that she may dwell in
Faerie Tale Cottage
I am not sure which way to go with her.
But clearly both the blue fae and she
need some arms and hands,
Now these are tiny 1:12 bonnets that I got from another artist named
Luned. Oh, the amazing work she does!!!!
Are they not just the most beautiful little things?
I even tried the blue one on my little blue....
Isn't is darling?
Then I tried the pink one on the Celtic Juju fae
I think she loves it!!!
Tomorrow, Mr. J. will bring home a folding banquet table
for me to set up in the living room
behind the couch
so that I can spread out the pieces of the cottage
and begin the process of putting it together.
I am both apprehensive and excited at the same time.
I will begin by numbering the pieces as instructed
on the directions
and then, perhaps, draw out my design plans
in the moleskine
that I have dedicated to F.T. Cottage.
Part of the fun is the
dreaming, drawing and collecting of photos and ideas
for the construction
of the house.
I would welcome and so appreciate any tips
you might have on the whole process,
and if you would like to link blogs,
please let me know.
I have begun a miniature blog roll on the side....
but I know this is just a tiny
sampling of the blogs out there dedicated to miniatures.
Ahhhhh, sweet, tiny, obsession!!!
