I was so surprised and thrilled to receive this sweet gift yesterday from my friend Doreen! Thank you so much, dear friend!
Doreen is a miniaturist whose work with tiny pieces is absolutely amazing (you must take a look at her blog) and she has shared a few of her creations with me! These tiny books and potato chips are so small they are hard to see in the larger picture but in the close-up I added two of my tiny collie figurines to give a bit of perspective on size and it's easier to tell just how small the beautiful books actually are!
And not only is the book Birds of Ontario in miniature it also has several actual pages from the original book. I could hardly believe this when I opened it up to see the inside pages. (I'm afraid my photos do not do this justice but take my word for it, this is awesome!)Doreen lives on a beautiful river in Wasaga Beach, ONTARIO where she views these beautiful birds right in her back yard every day. What a great job, Doreen! Brilliant!
