Even Smaller Houses

First it was my Reincarnated Pasta Box Houses, then I made Tiny Houses out of the pasta box scraps, then someone suggested the ornaments I made out of them looked like "earrings", and I found myself making teeny tiny houses. I decided to use polyclay for the latest houses because I thought it'd be more durable for earrings than papermache.
So I made a dozen 1/2" x 1" houses, painted them, strung them--along with some glass beads--onto wire, added ear wires, and I had six pairs of Teeny Tiny House Earrings for my Etsy shop. Well, five pairs, I kept the pink and aqua pair for myself. I may never wear them, but they'll look great in my soft aqua bathroom...when I get it painted that is.
I think I've taken this house shrinking idea as far as I want to.

ULLABENULLA has done it again!

In January, the lovely and very talented Ulla, featured my "Clown" figure on her amazing blog. She recently bought a pair of my Lollie Leg Earrings, and surprise, there they are, caught under a magical fortune teller tea cup on her blog, ULLABENULLA!
I'm almost too thrilled to brag!
Almost. ( :

Thank you Ulla...again.
