box of condoms to put by the bed! Handmade box measures 3/8" (1cm), and comes with three individual packets that measure 1/8" (3mm) each. The wrappers don't open, but each one has the telltale "ring" made by the contents. Keep them with the box, or stick one in your miniature man's wallet or woman's purse!
Hi folks, I hope you're all enjoying the beautiful spring weather we've been having. After such a cold, snowy winter, I know I sure am!
After several years of being absorbed by other matters, I decided to reopen my Etsy store! Due to the cost of listing, I'll only be putting sets there, not single books, but you can still buy the singles from my TreeFeathers Miniatures website. Pop on over and take a look!

Illuminated Mishneh Torah, c.1350
- Is the Talmud published in English at all, or should I make it in its original language? And is that Aramaic or Hebrew? It would only be relevant as far as the title on the cover (and which way the book would face), as I'm not about to attempt to make one full-text in miniature.
- Should I make a Jerusalem Talmud, a Babylonian Talmud, or both?
- Is there such a thing as a one-volume Talmud, or even 3 or 5 volume set? Or is it always a huge multi-volume set of books?
- Are Talmuds ever made with fancy fabulous covers, or do they tend to have plain covers, or does it not matter? Would it ever have gilt page edges? Are there old medieval versions I could recreate, or should I just make a modern style one?
- I have already made a Mishneh Torah (with English title) since I happened to come across a beautiful old cover for one. Just how common is this book? I read up on the background and history of it, but it didn't really give me a grasp of whether or not it's a common book these days.
I already know what I'll be using some of them for: holding the leftover bits of custom-mixed paints and plasters that I use. It takes so little for mini projects, I hate to mix up large amounts of custom colors and textures. They tend to dry out quickly in larger containers, so storage has always been a problem. These will be perfect! I'm also going to use them to hold different colors of flocking material, which currently stay in the plastic baggies in which they arrive. I have to pour out piles onto paper plates or into larger containers when I actually use it (and then try to pour the leftover back into the baggies.) This will be a much easier solution.
I think they'll also be handy for storing miniature works in progress, to keep the pieces together and clean. And I can stack them right on the work table within easy reach instead of away in a drawer where they might be forgotten. Maybe it will help me cut down on the UFOs around here!
