Tiny, tinier, tiniest....

Magically it's Monday again. The Time Fairy must have been madly waving her wand about ...she really stirred up the fairy dust and hours whipped past. You know what I'm talking about. They show you the little magical clock..with hands just whirring? ... hours, then days whiz past in a twinkling? Yep.. another week just flew.... .... however, having written this few lines.... I now have a great new fairy in mind...hahahhaha.... sometimes saying things out loud.. ( or writing them ) let's you "see" something else..... something you were not thinking about AT all!

Originally, when I realized it was Monday already... I was trying to think what I could post for the once a week photo challenge that Linda is hosting.

...and.......I figured it out. After doing the tiny feet entry a few days back.. ...then carrying on with teensy "inchies" ... I was ruminating about being kind of funny that way.... having a love of tiny things. Then I walked into my craft room and saw this.... A piece of popcorn??

Gotcha didn't I?











...on closer inspection..................














...not popcorn, but it did become his name.
















here's his cute little bum.....














and...here you can see he really is little....

I was fiddling with some paperclay one day and thought it was a bit tricky to work with..so wanted to see how difficult it would be to try something really small. You know, just to make myself crazy. He was not a piece of cake... as a matter of fact I mistook him for a piece of popcorn several times. Once I almost tossed him into my mouth.... poor little guy. I named him Popcorn...and... he sits beside a tiny box of inchies on the craft table. I will actually put some colour on his eyes and nose some day...... til then, I'll just grin every time I see him.....

Ha! You got me!! But, that is the cutest littel popcorn I ever saw. You really need to give him his eyes and nose tho. Then we will think he is burnt popcorn from a distance.

Hi V

I had to look all the way to the bottom to find the little "Bette" you talked about, so on the way, I saw "Popcorn". If they lived with me, I woudn't get anything done. Bette certainly made Valentine's Day a hit, and I see that a person could take little Popcorn anywhere. You could wear him on your clothes, especially at the theatre!! Oh dear, I don't want to think of that...thanks for the sightings.
