Spring feelings ...

Juhuu...there´s spring in the air!!! We are enjoying sunshine today, the bird´s are singing...and we are still ill. But muuuuuch better. Thanks for all your good wishes and comments on my last post. Mini-me-Flutterby is also doing fine. And Birgit, I have a feeling, he won´t remain the only mini-one :-)
So, as we are recovering there´s been plenty of time for mini-making. And when I saw this stork at the GraphicsFairy I knew what to do! This is quite similar the way how we told our neighbours that Tom and Jenny were born :-) this is now the decoration of my Ballerina´s house on Place Pigalle.

A while ago I started to buy and make things for the girl´s room under the roof in Place Pigalle. 

For now I put them in Pippis Cottage but as you can see, there´s a rocking horse (that was a kit from Kotte Toys I bought at,

and I had some fun making little fimo dolls :-)´s Flutter, too!

The mini-mini-bench with the cutest teddies on it is a purchase from signea at etsy.

The dragon is still here from last autumn.

Of course the girls will need a dollshouse.  It´s quite crooked. Okay, THAT was not my intention, BUT it belonged to their mother and is a vintage piece :-)))))))

Yesterday was Simona´s Birthday. Simona, I hope that you had a wonderful day and that you will soon receive the missing gifts! Mine already arrived so I can show you what I made:

And a "Thank you!!!" to Kaisa who is organizing this fun Birthday swap!!!

And at least I would like to welcome my new followers with this springtime bouquet.
Thanks for visiting and taking time to leave a comment!

Hugs, Sandra

A Mini-Me from Flutterby

Hi there!

Reading other people´s blogs is such an amanzing journey full of inspirations, admiration for the work of others and sometimes I even fell in love with something....or someone :-) So, this is "my love" Flutterby! Usually he´s living with Birgit and I suppose she is not going to part with him as he is such a charming fellow. So, last night when I could not find sleep (we all catched the flew), I made my own Mini-mini-Flutterby :-))) As I cannot sew he is made of FIMO. Here you can see him with his already second pair of wings - my daughter obviously loves him too!

Liebe Birgit, ich hoffe, Du verzeihst mir mein Plagiat!

I hope you are all doing fine and have a good week!
Hugs, Sandra

Life happens while you are making plans...

Actually my plan was to be a bit quicker with my next post, but although I am spending a lot of time making minis I just don´t get ready with anything, so today I´ll be showing you "details" :-)))
As you can see on my first picture, my witch Miranda has been very successfully in breeding a very rare Whomping Willow (okay, the foto is lousy, but this is also a very BAD MOODED Whomping Willow who constantly refused to say "Cheeeeeeeeeeeeese" for the fotographer!) And getting on the cover of the Daily Prophet...Mrianda couldn´t have thought about a better promotion for her witchy business "Miranda´s Magical Seedlings".  Then, the day before the guys from the newspaper arrived, Miranda transformed into a frog!!!! Aaaaaaaaaaagh!  She was up to use some polyjuice potion with a hair from Cassandra Clearwater
(an old enemy from her Hogwarts school days -both fell in love with a teacher called "Gilderoy"). Well, as you can easily see, something was wrong - maybe there was some frogspawn on the hair????
This will have to be sorted out. But until then Miranda needed another kind of a "bed"....

And I am busy collecting and making witchy stuff....

This beautiful cauldron is made by Georgia Marfels (as are the mice in the background and the Miranda frog) . While Miranda is preferring to have all kinds of flies for dinner, the cauldron is used for someone else...

This is Flitzhinaus, he is a GoldenDesertDragon -baby. He prefers warm temperatures and dry places, is even able to learn human speech (only if he wants to). You will not have seen one before, as they are rare. Really rare, almost eradicated be generations of males as their skin is the only working antidote against male hair loss.

And I made some other magical pumpkins and plants for Miranda´s store. And -of .course - 
a witch is supposed to have a lot of books. I only made a few yet :

And this is where Miranda´s going to live. My Café Igitt is going to get a new exterior and
"Miranda´sMagicalSeedlings" are on the first floor, her private rooms will be under the roof.

Somehow I am not able to make links today -sorry! 
Kaisa is organising a Birthday Swap and today is Rosella´s Birthday!
Happy Birthday Rosella!!!
As she already opened her gifts I can show you what I made:

And for my Ballerina´s house I made some more tulips, some roses and a shabby memo board:

Hey, I am really in the mood for springtime!  Are you, too???

Bye for now, hugs,
