Hi there! : )
Loads of thanks for your encouraging messages! I fell (almost) fine now, and (almost) ready to afford the snowy weather outside!
And to enlighten a bit these cold winter days I made some light springtime ornaments.
I used three small bubbles of glass (4 cm in diameter, namely approx 1.5 inches) to create three differents miniature spring inspired scene.
I call the first one "Le petit nuage" (the little cloud), mainly because there was a distant time of my life when I could more or less speak French, and I miss it so much! : )
These little dioramas (can I call them dioramas, uh?) are actually quite tricky to assemble, because (a) the opening on top is so narrow that the object you put in there (in this case, the tiny cloud) has to be very small, but still large enough to be noticeable, plus (b) the clay top has to perfectly match the glass bubble and (c) it is virtually impossible to clean the inner part of the bubble if you stain it with glue or paint (I completely ruined one of the bubbles in the attempt to rub away a small spot).
Well, I hope at least that the result is worth the effort! : )
And here's the second one, "Flying away" (kind of self-explaining, right?)
And finally, the romantic one, "Lovebirds" (because I am hopelessy romantic, after all)
Blooming hugs to all of you! : )
