Finally I displayed  sign board I made.  
A cat and a little birdy....both are I collected before.
I glued the bird onto cat's head...ha,ha!
Wishing they get along as I love both birds and cats.

original picture from Maybel cat.

Bird nest with Eggs

When I attend the miniature show in Japan,  I sell miniatures I found
at Miniature show in the US or in the UK.
I sell miniatures I made as well.

I made these bird nests. Using hemp strings and green foliage.
Eggs are FIMO.  All of them got sold out at June/July show in Japan.
I will make some more.
