Three Little Chairs
Fairy chairs with pumpkins and real stuffed pillow cats.
The chairs are four and a half inches high, made from maple
and oak. They are trimed with tiny dried natural flowers.
The pillows are replicas of ones made in the 1800's. They
are hand stitched painted cotton with cotton batting stuffing.
The pumpkins are hand made and painted.

How wonderful to see you again! These chairs are very special..and I like the little cat pillows. I had a large one like that, but it disappeared in the course of my travels. I'd love to know what you're doing at the newspaper...it must be wonderful to be taking so much of your attention. I missed you:>

Toni said...

I can't begin to tell you how excited I am to see you back and happy to hear you like your new job!
The detail in each chair, cat pillows and pumkins are amazing. I can picture the little fairies sitting among the chairs.
Welcome back you were missed a lot by many. Big smiles here.

I love these little chairs! Little things are just too precious!

Katili said...

Awh I adore this ! The tiny little chairs with all the small details are so fabulous. Placing the cats and pumpkins with the chairs makes this a mystery like image. Like it was from an Island of Cats or something. Great work.

The chairs are VERY beautiful. They are worth more than your run of the mill Chippendale.

Jaimie said...

Joy Eliz said...

Splendid little chairs and cats and that fruit the name escapes. This is a cool little set up and well photographed. I've got a little silver wizard who would like to stand on one of the chairs, not because he has'nt got any manners, he can't bend his legs. ...:::o

Mehlika said...

miragee said...

you know how I am so into fairies! How perfect! I realised that just because my scanner is out of action doesn't mean I cannot be inspired myself by other bloggy arts. And inspired I am!

Cate said...

It was so nice learning a bit more about you! I'm so grateful that you're "back!"

Love your delightful chairs, esp., as always, your attention to detail. A fairy would be proud to rest her bottom in one of them! Your work makes my imagination dance!

Mark said...

Now you need to make a tiny little tea set... :)

I love the little touch with the cats! This piece is unique, quite unlike other works. Very very pretty and individual. I like it.

Brian the Mennonite said...

Great little places to rest. I've played around with sticks in this manner before, but haven't had the same results as you.

cream said...

Chairs for your elves! I love them.

I think it's always a good idea to keep the elves comfortable. Maybe someday they'll repay you, and you'll wake up one morning to find the house spotless, and the lawn mowed!

Lily and Lucy White said...

Tea party for three little ... who?
I have been soooooo neglectful of my wee people, that I am afraid that the moment they will see your chairs, they will flee me and move in with your wee people… You do put all of us, wee people minders, to shame! Wonderful little sculpture, ohm, functional art… Love seeing you back! Lily.

The Tart said...
