Little Zinnia

little-zinnia-herself-tinyDo you like miniatures?

I didn’t realize until recently how many tiny things I’ve collected along the way in my 50+ years. It’s a half century’s worth of random stuff.  Featured here are these little objects (everything is 2 inches or smaller) for your enjoyment and inspiration! I’ll post every day, or as often as I can! (project ran from 3-13 to 7-20)

Well, I would not doubt that I’ve got even more minis tucked around here and there…but for now, I must end the daily mini project with this collection of pigs. It is the denouement!

Unlike a traditional denouement though, I have no plot lines drawn in conclusion or matters resolved. I just have other things to attend to, and this is the end of the ones that I found and collected randomly in a box that make up this running post of miniatures.

I started this when the first shock of realizing we should take the covid virus seriously came in our collective consciousness as Americans. As in, it wasn’t just another “flu bug” or that it would just go away. Keep hanging in there!

I hope you stay safe through the rest of this tumultuous year, and Stay Creative!!! 🙂

6-13  Since it is June, it is fitting I ran across these two. Actually, I found the bride awhile back, and I sat her aside hoping her groom would turn up. And he did. These are very old cupcake toppers that I saved from someone’s bridal shower somewhere along the way. I don’t remember who now. I have a lot of older cousins, so it was probably one of them. The bride is looking a little worse for the wear. The top of her gown has worn off and she looks topless! Oh well…likely their tiny wedding would have been cancelled anyway.

This is is really old and kind of strange. It is very small – .75 inches tall. So hard to get a good shot. Today was a strange day though, so I’m going with it.

I missed two days! I’m not even sure why…I’ve been at home doing whatever and somehow the day gets away from me. I’m not going anywhere for the time being. I hope you are safe wherever you are. It helps those brave souls on the “front lines”,  who have to show up, for the rest of us to stay in and out of the way.
