Best thing to do to a watch!

This is a fantasy orrery I made for my daughter Sarah for Christmas. She comes over from Brisbane each summer for a couple of weeks to escape the muggy heat there. My family get minis as gifts whether they want them or not! She gave me two Shaun Tan books which I love - if I could make scenes like that in miniature I'd be very happy.
Inspiration for this orrery came from Ericka Van Horn's work - her minis are amazing!


  1. Wow, Glenda! I can't believe you made this! It is wonderful! I am heading down stairs in two shakes to try to get some things accomplished for my Etsy shop. Checking in with everyone to see what's up before heading down to my basement! This is wonderful!


  2. You are so creative, I love that orrery! Your daughter must have been so pleased to get it!
