A secret to share with you...

Pssssssssst...are you still around?

You know, it is a fact, the more I make mini dolls the more I feel like Gulliver.Not too bad when you are quite short yourself.
I've been working on mini stuffs lately and other things.
Let me show you the mini stuffs first:

But once in my hand...

...the Gulliver effect...again!
Whoever is surrounded by minis knows the feeling.Right?
So it is good sometimes to remember the real size of things and... there is a secret place where I love to go.Yes...
...right here at this oak tree.
With my sweet Moochoo, we call it our secret because we like to hide things at the foot of the tree.Like 2 kids who love to hide their cherished treasure.And on top of that, there is...look closer...
With the heavy snow we've had in England lately, I've had to wear a very thick coat and my welly boots ending up looking like Winnie the Pooh.
But still, I went again to the old tree just to remember the real size of things.
And I have my Christopher Robin to skip and hop in the snow with me!
Do you want to join in?Of course you are more than welcome.So wear your thickest coat, 3 pairs of socks ,put on your wellies and meet us at...

Hi, i'm italian. My name is Alessia. I love miniatures and one of my dreams it to have a dolls house. Ten years ago I went to London and I sow miniatures everywhere in shops. Here in Italy isn't so diffuse and is very expensive. Your doll's are very nice and very very english!!!!!Sorry for my english, I hope you understand me!

The countryside and the snow is beautiful! Very sweet video. (but also very artistic!)
The most amazing thing happened though, the video did not download smoothly (Our internet in Saudi is very slow!) and it froze just as the snowball was at the highest point. It was so lovely, and looked like the moon, suspended in the air... magical.

Fantastique ! Par où commencer? ...
Ton petit théâtre de marionnettes est trop mignon. Il me fait rêver.
J'adore la photo de ta jambe avec la poupée en fond, l'effet Gulliver est parfait.
La vidéo fait rêver aussi, si romantique. Je me rendais pas compte que tu étais si proche de grandes étendues et avec la neige... Il y a longtemps que je n'ai pas fait de la balançoire, dommage car j'adore ça, un rêve d'en faire dans un tel endroit.
Beaucoup plus de neige que chez nous.
Gros bisous

The video is a lovely celebration of the snow and special places - adults can enjoy it too (which I am thankful to say I have done to today with my children). And the song by Katie Melua is one my family loves, chilled and relaxed.

Votre arbre est vraiment très beau et la neige,la campagne,l'ambiance,vous 2 aussi!!
Ce petit film est vraiment bien fait,c'est plein d'émotion aussi ,très doux et très artistique!
Il me rend un peu nostalgique aussi...bon,le fait qu'on soit dimanche et que j'ai dormi 2 heures doit y être pour quelque chose...mais c'est certain,tu me manques ma p'tite Pat! On vient te voir quand tu veux et dès qu'on pourra!!!
Quelque chose fait très plaisir en voyant tout ton nouvel univers,c'est qu'il me fait penser à l'univers dans lequel tu rêvais petite fille,ce que tu me racontait être quand tu étais une petite "princesse"...j'ai donc vraiment la forte impression que tu t'épanouis complètement et que tu suis un bon chemin de vie ,en accord avec toi-même.
Alors: yeeeeehaaaaaaaaahhhh!!!!
Toc-Angel :D

Quel bonheur de découvrir ton blog !!
J'ai une immense passion pour les maisons de poupée et les poupées (anciennes et moins anciennes). J'en ai eu une, lorsque j'étais enfant, toute meublée de meubles ayant appartenu à mon arrière grand mère :)
Je reviens bientôt (et oui je suis intéressée par les interviews d'auteurs jeunesse, merci )
A très bientôt !
