Things People Swallowed

For the Box of Whimsies/Miniatures swap, @Bunny1kenobi said she likes Victorian things. I’ve made a few full sized Victorian macabre displays over the years focused on superstitions or funeral customs. I had this pretty little frame and some red velvet scrapbook paper in my stash so started digging to see what is small enough to fit inside. Once I found the miniature coin, I knew it would be a Things People Swallowed display.

This is brilliant! I love the little items. I never would have thought it was a miniature until you added the quarter for reference. The red is the perfect background!

This is sooo clever. I love that you used unusual Victorian traditions for your inspiration. A miniature hair art display would be a cool companion piece, although don’t know how one would create tiny hair art.

This swap has challenged me to think about miniature crafting in a whole new way and now I want to make something inspired by this beauty.
