Maryann drew my attention to a recent article in the Guardian. Excellent read! Simon Garfield explains miniaturists in a nutshell; I understand myself so much better now. Follow the link if you would like to know why miniatures are big.

Yes, I'm still alive. Life is a bit surrealistic at present but I smell cinnamon and pine needles and a holiday break on the breeze. Let's chat soon.

  4. Thank you Megan for the link. It was interesting and fun reading the article. I was always attracted to miniatures never imagining that I'll end up making them. Found the reason here.

I bookmarked the article to read this weekend when I'll have the mind to concentrate. It would be nice to know a boiled down reason why miniatures fill me with so much joy!

    1. Dear Birgit. Thank you for your comments on my blog during 2018. I loved reading them, and I loved visiting your blog. Rosey and Fluby are always up to something, and your Kaffeeklatch posts really help to improve my German vocabulary. Looking forward to sharing your creative journey this year. There's a slight possibility that I might deliver a strawberry teapot to Fluby in person, wouldn't that be exciting?!

  7. This was a great read. I wish I had recognized my interest in miniatures sooner so I could have a thriving career in it now! I love that the article mentions the very common desire to exert total control over miniatures as a way of feeling like our own lives and environments are under control, too. Same reason games like The Sims remain popular.
