As most of you who read my blog know, I design jewelry and sell it on my websites, my Artfire.com shop and my Etsy.com shop. A lot of my pieces have a "whimsical" flavor to them and I'm inspired by the artwork of Mary Engelbreit. A little over a week ago I got an email from "Pam" who wrote "I LOVE the fried egg flower watch you posted on ME Inspires me on Facebook and I really really need it!" Now tell me...how could I resist a plea like that? I wrote her back that if she "really, really needed it" I would be happy to make her one. She, also, wrote me in that email that she was an "avid ME fan". Well...that sealed the deal cuz anyone who is a fan of Ms. ME is a friend of mine. Pam wrote that she was a miniaturist, too. Hummm?? That might be a deal breaker...I've never known a "miniaturist" before. But then I went to the link that she sent me where I found her Oh So Cute little Mary Engelbreit dollhouse. That's how I found out about all of her fabulous little miniature creations. I told her that I would HAVE to share her work with everyone on my blog and she gave me her permission to use her photographs.
|Miniature ME Lunch Box Scene|
The scene above was created in a 7.5" x 6" tin lunch box. As Pam explained it to me, she works in "scales" of 1 inch and 1/4 inch. This means that 1" = 1 ft. or 1/4" = 1 ft. so you can just imagine how tiny her work is. I was just amazed as I looked at each of her creations.

You'll need to enlarge this little photo to see the details of the exterior and interior part of the house that she created in a ME recipe box...that's right....a recipe box. There is a little cat standing on the stool in the kitchen working on a laptop computer..too cute!

This little ME suitcase measures 11" x 7 1/4" but it holds the little miniature ME house with an outside sitting area.
|Pam's Clocks or Room Boxes|Pam sells her clocks and room boxes over on her website. She moderates a Yahoo group for miniaturist and teaches others how to create these wonderful little works of art. Please stop over and see more of her work on her website.
A big Thank You to Pam Junk for allowing me to share her ME Inspired creations.
