1. Raspberry Caramel Dessert , 2. Miniature Ice Cream Display, 3. Tropical, 4. Summer Treats

A charming selection of miniature, summer-perfect treats! I just LOVE the ice cream bar! Hoping today we get our summer treat at Dairy Queen (I’m assuming that’s at best, a North American chain) as it’s the day they donate a dollar from the purchase of their signature blizzards to charity. Not that we ever need an excuse to go buy ice cream in this household.

    I always love your miniatures. Have you ever checked out http://www.theminitimemachine.org/ ? We discovered it this summer during a trip to Tucson, to visit my mom. It’s a whole museum dedicated to miniatures. They are incredibly kid friendly as well. I hope you and your readers check it out. We did, and are glad we did. We got a year membership during the five weeks we were there, and got more than our money’s worth.

    Hi, I love these wonderful minis. Could you point me in the direction to find out how to do the faux ice for the snow cones? My daughter wants me to make her some snow cone jewelry and I can’t quite imagine how the “ice” is made. Thanks for any help. Smiles

    Hey Sue! Sorry for the delay in getting back to you – I was out of town while the blog was auto-posting for me. I’m not sure how this artist has done the snow cone but I would be tempted to use flakes (Arnold Gummer, fake snow, large glitter, etc) glued to the clay base rather than just clay. You could also bake a nub of translucent clay, grate it afterwards and roll a ball of clay in the gratings to make the flakey effect on the ball, itself.
