Pooh, Pixies and Dolls

First of all thank you all for the nice comments on my last post, I so appreciated them!
The news about the little rabbit is that on Saturday morning he will re-gain the freedom. He now is grown enough to join his friends in the wood and live a happily and free life.
Hubby and the kids will take him to the wood with a ranger but I will not be with them because this afternoon I have to leave for Paris.
Christine (the SIMP organizer) mailed me last week that she had a free table (the Nr. 3) and I spent the last two weeks working like a mad to prepare it!
Here is what I came up with:

Do you remember the Bride and Groom bears? Well I made another "wood in a box" for Pooh, Piglet and Eeyore, they are full jointed and movable and Eeyore has a little pink bow on the tail - so funny! I also added tiny butterflies that I made with my wonder hook and sewing thread. 
I love so much how it turned!

 Being in the fairy mood I gave birth to tiny pixies, sleeping in walnuts beds:

The limbs and head are made with cold porcelain and the body is crocheted. I jointed them with very tiny beads, if they move the fun is greater, isn't it?

 I also made little dolls, pixies friends, with chubby funny faces:

There is a lot more to see, so if you are in Paris on Sunday morning, come to the Simp at table Nr. 3 and say hello!

P.S. Last but not least ... spot the strawberry ....

    Precioso trabajo.

  7. я восхищена вашими работами! супер!очень тонкая работа! я тоже стараюсь,но до вас мне пока далеко.

  8. Love the Characters From Winnie The Pooh. I have a soft spot for Eeyore. Hope your having a great time at SIMP. x

  9. My admiration!! Tell me please where I can buy a very small crochet?

    1. Hmmm, I am not very helpful because I buy mine in a shop here nearby. You can try on Etsy or on Ebay searching for "crochet steel hook". The smallest one I have is a fake 0.6mm. The shop owner was not able to sell them because they were too small, a 0.4mm indeed. Her fault my bargain LOL!

  10. Mariella, how do i purchase one of your miniature Eeyores?? I would really love one! (:

    1. I will soon renew my Etsy shop with new miniatures, you can check there if you find something you love.
      Thank you so much for asking.


  11. owwww, what a little cuties! The pixies are just adorable!
    As is the dwarf hare, so cute!
    I raised a baby hare years ago, it had dropped into my cellar through an open window; since then I have a real soft spot for baby hares.
    Did you know you can train them to come and play with you and even go on a cat litter box?


Long overdue post!!

We already are into the month of November and I realised I haven't posted since February ... gosh! I have been super busy with work, k...
