Last week a parcel arrived from New Zealand. The gifts were from a lady called Glenda i met over a year ago through ebay. At that time we both exchanged a few emails and only recetly Glenda let me know she too had started a blog. Here's the link: http://peppercornminis.blogspot.com/
This really is a beautiful blog, Glenda is so talented and you will not believe your eyes. Her work is so intricate, the tiny yet in my opinion subtle details and mix of neutral colours can enhance various styles of miniature scenes. From Tudor to modern and contempory each piece of work will find it's place. I think its rare for minis to fall into so many categories, where in various setting they nestle in well. I find it dificult at times to find a balance of making a mini stand out but also at the same time i'm always aware it shouldnt dominate the scene it will be placed. I think Glendas work has these qualities and i really admire this in mini work.
I love Glenda's work and is been a pleasure to meet her.
Here's my gifts.
The little spider web is made from silk. Glenda kindly sent me enough silk to make a further web. Its amazing and so, so delicate.
The rush mat and hexagon rya rugs are beautiful and will go in my witches bedroom.
Just adore and love the leather bucket/pail. This will go in the wicthes potion room.
Thank you Glenda for your generosity and thinking of me.
I promise i will get back to work on my witches house after May. Its going to be lovely because i have some beautiful gifts from so many people and cant wait to put them all in their place.
Here's a link to Glenda's etsy shop. http://www.etsy.com/shop/undancey
At the moment there are various rugs in all styles available.
In particular i love this pentacle rya rug.
Here's some picture of other minis i love from her blog. Make sure you click older posts and go right back.
Just look at those baskets! I love the round ones with the wooden base and think they would be beyond words with a mix of witch/wizard woodland potion ingredients and little delicate flowers too all laid out from the witches stroll through the woods (childish imagination i know, lol).
