HS:MS miniature

'A replica of something in a smaller scale. Find 'miniature' in your space today.'

The only thing I could think of off the top of my head was my set of Russian dolls, the smallest, of course, being the 'miniature':




Just pausing today to thank all my friends on HS:MS for their kind comments - before I started the daily prompts, I would never have thought of bothering to take pictures like this - and, although I'm still only really a snapper, perhaps it's helping me to getting better.

And now I must get on and make some cards for requests I've had - why is it that they are always the hardest to make? I started on one of them yesterday and took quite a long while and still didn't finish it. And I also have a CJ DLO that needs to be done. I hope to be back later to show that I've achieved something.

  5. So cute! We visited Russia last year and there were just so many dolls and mostly not good quality, so I didn't buy any. Good picture, especially the portrait one. (Still haven't cleaned that switch!)

  16. Great shot Hazel :)

    My MIL bought me my very first Russian Doll for Christmas several years ago after mentioning that I had always wanted one as a child. She's a smashing MIL.

    I'm lovin HS:MS too. They, including us of course, are a great bunch of people.

    Bye for now. . . . Sue
