Shhhhhh quiet please, do you hear what I hear.....???


Please have a tiny little sneaky-peeky-look to what came to life in my studio.
I've taken good care after the eggs from my previous post.
It was a very responsible job, which I've taken very seriously.
Proper care and patience dust will pay off. Look what came out of the eggs today: 
the most adorable little “ Royal Pinky Chickadees ”.
Shhhh please make no noise…and be quiet while looking at them!!!
We don’t wanna disturb them, do we?

I've never seen a breed like this before, so Beepy & Peepy are very original chickens.
And therefore I’m considering to register them at the center of rare species. 

Oh I know what you are saying: ahhh,  you love to fool us Thea!!!!
Of course I do: these little chickens belong to the new piece that I want to create.
They both came out really sweet and normally I wouldn’t publish anything before I've finished the entire piece. But I love them so much, that I couldn’t resist to share them with you.
They are made off woolfelt.
It's the first time in my life that I woolfelted miniature birds.
I love to discover new things, learn new techniques etc.
 My motto: you need to experience things and you're never too old to learn.
So I'm please to found out that I managed to create these little birds and that my kills
have expanded a little bit too.

They are made in an Itty-Bitty-Size.
 And please bear in mind: my hands are Itty-Bitty-Sized too…

So my next job: seeking worms!!! Boy oh boy,  they have an insatiable appetite…phew.
Gotta go now....peep-peep-peep-peep....

Why isnt't there a "bad-day-delete"- button.....???

It wasn't a happy week at: 
" Villa Teddy Bear Fur "
If I was able to skip a week, I probably would use this feature and delete last week forgood.
Open the trash bin and dump it as quick as I possible!
There were a couple of reasons which can be held responsible:  

First of all: I cut my right thumb 3 (!!!!) times.
Reason: my Venus Gilette Razor.
My tip: never rinse the razor behind your back after shaving your armpits. Until now it was always my method ( I’ve always  loved to do things the other way around).
( pssstttt....Did I say the wisdom comes with age....or was it the other way around...??? )

For some reason this title song of the Commodores:
Three Times A Lady ”, pops up in my mind. 
But I guess that refers to something else...he he he.
It was a bit inconvenient to work with a thumb wrapped in a bandage,
but I managed to create a new design. Mission accomplished.

Second problem: a nasty toothache for at least a whole week.
And I’m not so keen on that. Alarm bells were ringing in my head as this is not the first time.
I’m familiar with toothaches caused by something else.

As there was no spontaneous cure,
I decided to open my routine-book to eliminate certain causes and it was...........

........at my dentist.
But there was nothing wrong with my teeth. The only thing the dentist discovered was a sensible wisdom tooth and we both decided to extract it. Phew.
That little thing won’t tease my any longer.
(....what did I say about wisdom before....LOL)
After checking the photo all that was left and A BIG BONUS AFER ALL and what causes my toothache appeared to be a sinus inflammation! YEAH.

Best way to deal with it:
Open your own spa, health and wellness center and try to steam everything open.
So far so good, nature must do the rest, I’m not so fond of antibiotics.

Despite all these problems, I always look on the bright side of life.
It's Springtime in my studio !!!
I just love it!!! I’m probably the biggest SPRING-fan on earth.
I’m very curious to look what will peep out of these eggs below….
I have no idea….do you know…??
All you need is a litte patience dust.....and meanwhile I'm the EGG-SITTER.

Enjoy your weekend!!!

Voilà: My First Design of 2012

...In a Vintage Whimsical Circus Clown Style...
Miou Miou is the first one of my " NEW BREED DESIGN " 
and I am so thrilled at how wonderful & sweet this piece turned out.

 Miou Miou is an Itty-Bitty-Size wich means she is small enough to fit in your hand
too which makes her so adorable.

Miou Miou's wears a sweet little pinaforce I made from a soft pink rayon fabric and then aged.
The pinaforce is trimmed with hand tinted fine French cotton lace & a rayon ribbon bow
which I dyed and distressed.

Miou Miou travels to her new home sitting on her own "cute little wagon".
I covered it with an old pink fabric which I distressed for a vintage look.
It is trimmed with a cream ribbon with black scalloped edges and a small
silk ribbon woven through cotton lace.
I applied my specially developed "color-&-painting" technique on the box.
Then aged to look like an old box.
I applied little black dots for the finishing touch.

If you cannot find the wheels you want, you simply have to make them yourself.
I must admit - despite several mistakes - I love the way they turned out...!!!
While cutting them I was thinking of old times when I used to help my dad in the garage.
In his spare time he made furniture and I was his " little-big-daddies-helper-(wo)man "!!! 
Ergo: I think I'm well experienced...

Et voilà: the final result, beautiful little wagon with a bunch of hand painted flowers on the front and the cord with the vintage wooden bead as charming finishing touches.

If you would like to view her full information and to see much more full size photographs, please visit my website: www.milly-me.nl

Miou Miou is already adopted and right now she is on her way 
to the land of Uncle Sam where she found a new home. 
A warm place where they love plush friends.
So I wave goodbye to her….

...Ta Ta Ra Ta Ta Daaaaa...Pee Peepp...
Well today was my first day in my studio after the happy holidays. 
I look back with moments of great joy and pleasure, maybe I'd better describe it as 
" melancholy sentiments " and " feelings of nostalgia "
I ordered some great new stuff (which took about a hundred years to arrive at my doorstep...pfff...) and started to "play" with it today. Result: this great looking ANNOUNCMENT-LABEL with Herald, the fabulous rabbit of Alice in Wonderland.
(ggg...did I mention that a least 5 pieces ended up in my trash-bin...lol)

It's a perfect label to annouce that I've created a new design and I'm soooooo happy at how adorable this piece turned out.
Right now I'm working on the pictures.
I'm so exited...and I'm sure that you won't be dissapointed in this one-of-a-kind-piece!!


Oh well...if you insist...here you go...
a tiny little sneak-peek. But that's all you get right now!!!
