KRISTY'S MINI MENAGERIE

Hello and welcome, anybody who may come across this little blog of mine! I've just started this blog, and plan on focusing on miniatures, animals, and miniature animals. However, I'm also hoping it can be a fun place to talk about just about anything. We'll see.........

Splish Splash, a Walnut Shell Bath

Another walnut shell and mouse - didn't I tell you there were endless possibilities for a walnut shell, LOL. Well, it's not a real walnut of course, but they're pretty simple to make in clay.
I decided to make a little mushroom stand for this one since I know that the owner won't be displaying it inside a dollhouse. :-)

Peace on Earth, Goodwill Towards All Living Creatures

It's late, I'm tired, and I think I'm PMSing, LOL. I'm no poet, but when I saw a kid kick a little dog in the parking lot of a department store while at the same time hearing the song "Silent Night" coming from the store inside, ah well....

Silent Night, Holy Night


All is Wrong, Nothing's Right


Shivering Alone in the Cold Winter Snow



Left at a Shelter Awaiting Death Row



Beaten, Neglected, Abused



Lonely and Sad and Confused






Silent Night, Holy Night
Why the Cage? I Don't Bite


The People Walk Past Me, My Heart Fills With Pain
Nobody Wants Me, I'm Old and I'm Plain


Please, I am so Terrified
Come Dawn I'll be Euthanized






Silent Night, Holy Night
Little Beast, in Gun's Sight


Food on Their Table, Though Room They Have None


That Doesn't Matter 'cause Shooting is Fun


God's Little Creature so Free
But Man Controls Your Destiny






Silent Night, Holy Night
When will Man Make Things Right?
They Think They are Special, They Think They are Blessed
They Think They're the Masters and They are the Best
When will They See These are Lies?
When will They Hear all Our Cries?

And here's the last of 'em! Now I HAVE to get some Christmas shopping done!

And I'm really dreading it. But only 10 days left, so got to get my butt in gear!

Little hopper's done! One little mouse left to go!

It pretty much takes me a full day to fur, and that's for the tiny ones. Now I remember why I really like doing one animal at a time - it's not as tedious. Tomorrow is the little mouse's turn. You thought he looked skinny before? Check out how skinny he looks next to his two furred pals. And his eyes look huge too, LOL.

Tiny Raccoon Furred and My New Ugly Glasses

One down, two to go! I think this guy is the smallest of the three (3/4 inch to the tip of his ears). For the photos, I included my ugly reading glasses I bought at the drugstore recently. I could tell my eyes seemed to be getting worse since I've been making these little guys, and I finally broke down and bought a pair of cheapo glasses. WOW though! What a difference! Crap, I'm getting old! LOL

More Nudes (3 new pre-furred teeny tinies)

I normally make just one at a time because I'm impatient to see the final outcome. But I've got three in the works to try to save a little time so I can get some Christmas shopping done (and gifts made). The raccoon and mouse are 3/4 inch tall and the bunny is about 3/16 inch tall. This will be the smallest raccoon I've tried to fur, so he might end up in the trash, lol. By the way, is anybody else starting to feel the stress of Christmas? :-(

Little Girl Bunny

And yes again, I had to resort to making her dress from clay! :(
I TRIED to use real fabrics, and despite my frustration and rising blood pressure, I thought it was going to look okay until after a while the ends that I had treated with "Fray Check" began to fray (Arrrrrgh!!!). That's when I gave up, LOL!

Weeeeeee Mouse

Wow, it feels like forever since I visited blogland but it hasn't even been two weeks (eeek, I think I may be a blog addict). Well one big Holiday down and one to go, and I don't know about you guys but I am sooooo not ready for Christmas this year! I can't believe another year has already passed.
I just finished this little squeaker. I made several walnut shells in different sizes because there really is an unlimited use for them when it comes to mice. They can be used for a bed, a sled, a boat, a motorcycle side car, lol...to name just a few.
