In a nutshell ......

I had a delightfully unexpected gift through the post this morning - an exquisite miniature diorama of a beach Punch show constructed in half a walnut shell. I will post a picture but this doesn't do it justice because when you click the thumbnail the picture is bigger than the actual object and the delight comes from appreciating how tiny are the pieces being modelled, positioned and painted. The artist, Ruth Brickland, has a website on which are illustrated a number of her creations. Many are inspired by lives of the saints, children's literature and so forth, but I spotted Houdini and a Magician producing a Rabbit as being of special interest.


You can find them on
It's good to squawk!
