I have a NEW blog!

I have been debating about adjusting woolytales blog to my miniature work since I no longer make felted animals. My heart told me to get a new blog because although I don't make the woolies any longer they will always be part of my life and my children's lives.
My new blog is , you may click the picture to link there.
My work there is solo dedicated to dollhouse miniature animals, figurine and furniture.

I will be posting my favorite work there, and would love to *see* you there too!

Just a little note today. *grin*

Our wheater is so strange this time of the year ... it feels as if we skipped the Fall , in which I love it so very much. Last night , w

e had a frost and I was in shock to see that my double knock out roses were still beautiful and in full bloom. I have so many roses bushes and many different variety and colors but these 2 are the ones that I am most proud about it.

The dark pink one is in front of my house and the light soft pale pink is in the entrance to our school room. Everyone that passes there comment how lovely they are, I agree , don't you too?*grin*

Faerie House video

Please go to the bottom right side of this page and pause the music , then click on the video to view it!

I tried to upload the faerie house video on my posting area , but it did not work. It is on the right side bar . I know is side ways...sigh.... I can't fix that either and the quality is not that great also, BUT , grin, you can see maydaughters excitement and natural expression of what they thought when they first saw the house.
At that time, I worked in secret because I was thinking of this video and I wanted to capture the esponteneous attitude and although I did a second one, it was not the same.
Hope you like it!*grin*

My enchanted Fairy House

I made this enormous fairy house few years ago and I sold at ebay. The lady that bought from me was emailed me last year and told me that she couldn't keep the house any longer because of some damage that happened when she left the house outside. She was so gracious to send it back to me for repairs. I haven't had the time to repair yet and to set up because it is a large house and I need room to display but looking back at this made me smile. I have a little video that my children did with this faerie house , if I find it, I will add here tonight or tomorrow.
I hope you enjoy the tour and this magical house as much as I do!*grin*

This OOAK faerie house was made entirely from natural sources. The house consists of a thick wooden floor, large driftwood as a support for the second floor; the upstairs floor is a GIGANTIC REAL mushroom that has been properly dried and preserved. The roof is made of individual pine cone shingles. The front of the house was constructed over the same drift wood that supports the second floor and walls. The walls are a mix of meticulously braided twigs, snake skins, tree roots, dried petals, crushed glass, tiny logs, moss, lichens, dried cactus skeletons, and many others. For the door , used an antique jewelry box lid that has a metal design of roses and butterflies. And of course, a snail door knob. Two seashells hold mini lights that light the doorway.

The kitchen and it is probably my favorite. A loofah wall divides this room. There are a few shelves on the wall with sea shell tea pots, acorn bowls, and a sea shell picture. A wooden stove with a pipe is in the corner. And just like the bathroom there is a sea shell sink. A little broom rests in the corner. This room is also lighted the same way.

The bedroom. There you will find a dresser that was made with old barn wood, a little perfume sea shell sits on top of it, and a broken mirror as well. Her bed was rustically made with petals, moss, and sea shells adorning it. In a similar way I made a nightstand next to the bed. There is a wooden chair next to a stairway that leads to a loft. There is a mushroom as a ceiling and a hanging sea shell light.

Next to the bedroom is her bathroom. A cactus leaf serves as the wall. A sea shell sink with tiny snail knobs and a branch as a faucet and a little stone serving as soap all adorn the room. There is a shower with tiny sea shell knobs, rock soaps, and skeleton leaf as a rug. A resting chair sits in the corner with a sea shell light above.

This is the room is the living room. The floors are skeleton leaves, topped with rocks and moss. I used loofah as a dry wall. The table is a real mushroom that was dried and sealed. Two wooden shelves are against the wall holding precious stone enchanted books. There is also a sea shell light fixture.

Miniature Tapestry painting

I have always loved to paint. I love the challenge that a painting project brings to me. My children asked me the other day if I want to go to space mountain in Disneyworld, and I replied- "noway!".*grin* They laugh and thought that because I am getting older , I don't like the thrill but I explain to them that I like a *different* kind of thrill ... the one that challenges me and take me to places that no one can go... my imagination and aah... feet on the ground please!*grin* This painting is part of my miniature dollhouse furniture scale ( 1' = 1") and I honestly felt very pleased when I was done.
I used micro ( everything) to hand paint this canvas . I purposely used a tapestry to create a needle point effect since at this scale is almost impossible to do with threads.

The entire furniture is very lovely and is now available at my ebay store.
