Every Miniature Tells a Story

Studio space is still on the “to do” list so … I’ve resorted to gluing some of my cherished vintage miniatures to functional objects like jars …

Pooh Jars

… and more than a few of my vintage china saucers …

… and when I ran out of jars and china I found my eye hooks and ball-chain. spuds-mackenzie

In the coming days … watch for shop listings of the miniatures I can part with.

Shattered Pieces

Haven’t unwrapped my artwork – which, by the way, looked a heck of a lot smaller in the brick and mortar.

If the moving gods weren’t good to me, so be it … I have glue and a garbage can.

Through the Looking Glass

The vintage window was a gift from my sister friend, Tilly Evan Jones … it sat around for a couple of years waiting and wanting. Finally glued a bunch of my vintage glass collection to it.

All you need is a sturdy window (or frame) with good glass, wheeled glass nippers, small hammer, hand towel, safety glasses, random glass objects and e6000 adhesive.  This project must be glued in a well ventilated area … without the kids and pets.

Break glass dishes under a dish towel with a small hammer and gentle hand or use wheeled glass nippers to break up glass objects.

FYI … There are glass plates that will shatter into a BAZILLION PIECES without warning so … don’t be … going to use the word stupid – because it really is … ALWAYS WEAR SAFETY GLASSES when cutting glass or tile and do a different project with the kids.
