Miniature Animals, A Parrot and A Shell Mirror

While browsing around today I found this amazing artist! She makes the most realistic miniature animals! Her website is Kerri Pajutee Miniature Animals.

I've been looking for a golden retriever, a cat (or two) and a parrot for my dollhouse. I wish I could afford to buy one of Kerri's dogs and cats! I can't believe how precious they are! She shares her technique on her website too. Absolutely amazing!

I did find a beautiful little parrot at Matlock Miniatures. I bought a few other things too. Their prices are very reasonable. I don't plan to purchase many things for my dollhouse but I fell in love with this parrot, a sailboat and a couple of beach chairs...

Look at all of the beautiful detail and the colors! He will be the star of the "Beach House Blues" for sure! Any suggestions on a name for this gorgeous and trouble-making bird?

I spray painted the roof of my dollhouse last night and started painting the exterior. I also made a little shell mirror. It turned out so nice! Hard to get a good photo of it but I love it!
I used my hair dryer to loosen a mirror from a free Clinique compact, glued it on a piece of cardstock and then added the tiny shells I found at Michael's. I can't believe this Florida girl had to buy sea shells! I need to make a visit back "home!"

As you can see, I have lots of painting to do. I just wanted to see how the mirror would look in the living room! I would love to make a fireplace/mantle too but don't think my beach house needs a fireplace!?

Hope you have a beautiful day!

Blessings, Kathi

Hi Kathi! Glad to hear you're having a good time browsing for things for your dollhouse. Yes, Kerri's sculptures are beyond breathtaking. I probably would have died for her Chinese Crested or her Papillon had they not sold earlier. :o

What a beautiful parrot! He looks like a "Fiasco" to me. I'm definitely going to check out the rest of Matlock's selection later on. :)

"Fiasco!" Love it! :)

I just got a nice email from Matlock's Miniatures. They wanted to be sure I was aware of the actual size of the "yacht" I ordered before they send it. How thoughtful! I'm impressed with them already!
