Miniature Drinks

Happy St. Patrick's Day everyone!

I bought two drinks today, but it's not what you think! I decided to have Husband's alien dude drink a cool and refreshing drink in this lawn chair. While I was trying to figure out how I was going to make a really cool drinking glass out of polymer clay, I came across a whole world of miniature food. That got me searching further and I found these two adorable drinks on ebay, made persumably by Linda of Linda's Crafts and Collectibles. They are 1:6 scale (Barbie sized) as opposed to 1:12 scale which is apparently the most common scale for dollhouses. I am super excited.

I'm afraid I can't figure out a way to post these pictures from ebay so you will have to follow these two links to see the glasses. It will say the listing has ended, then there will be some alternative choices, and then the final sale item will be at the bottom of the page, so scroll down. Here is "stormy drink" and here is Caipirinha, a Brazilian drink that I will probably end up using.

Can't wait till they get here!

Blog moving

Hello my dear readers,

Since I was under a rock this winter, I did not realize that Blogger will no longer be using FTP publishing. Since my blog is published via FTP, I will need to migrate to either a blogspot domain or a custom domain. Right now I am leaning towards a custom domain. What do you all think? I've been frustrated with the layout of this blog for some time now, and I have been on and on about creating an actual website for myself as well, so perhaps this is a call to action. The deadline is May 1st, so I guess I had better get moving.

Now all I need is to create a cool domain name. Any suggestions? I like "neverbetter" because it's kind of a life philosophy that keeps me positive, and it does not limit me to one subject matter either. But I don't think I will be able to keep it. Hmmmm.... Ideas welcome!


And now, a quiz! What do you think my cat is doing? As documented in the photo below, she grabs the blanket (and only this one blanket will do!) with her teeth, pulls on it with her front paws, and then spins around on her butt in a frankly somewhat erotic nature. Thoughts?

Silly kitty!
