I started work on my Kingdom of Men army! My basic theme is a variation on Imperial Romans, so I spent the evening drilling out hands and adding in some pikes to give me a heavy pike horde of 40 figures; this will form the backbone of my force!
Almonds are the edible seeds of the almond fruit. They are very nutritional, 100g of almonds cover about 20% of daily needs in B vitamins riboflavin and niacin, vitamin E, and the essential minerals calcium, iron, magnesium, manganese, phosphorus, and zinc. (cf. wikipedia)
Today the Department of Teeny-tiny Treasures is marveling at this exquisitely detailed miniature food handmade by French artist Stephanie Kilgast, aka PetitPlat. Kilgast uses polymer clay to sculpt 1:12 scale dollhouse miniatures of so many different kinds of fruit, vegetables, bread, and sweets that we wish we could shrink ourselves and play with them inside actual dollhouses.
For 2015 Kilgast decided to challenge herself to sculpt a one miniature fruit, vegetable, or root each day. You can follow her progress here on Tumblr at dailyminiveggie.

(apologies for the long post) So this is my entry for mid0nz‘s Mr. Blue Skull contest! It’s a Sherlock-themed shadow box that I was super excited to make! I had been thinking about making shadow boxes for a while so it seemed like the perfect opportunity to give it a try. The box measures about 12″ x 8″, there’s over 100 pieces and everything is handmade save for a few small items and the images I printed. Also credit to the amazing buneesi who made the adorable tiny deerstalker!
