Ten Tiny Chairs

Lesley, the Funky Art Queen issued a Ten Tiny Things challenge last week. The challenge was extended to Tuesday, June 30th. With my love of all things miniature, I couldn't resist playing along. The above photograph is my official submission.

The rules of the challenge are:
1) find 10 tiny things and group them together
2) photograph them
3) post about them on your blog
4) go to Funky Art Queen's blog, leave a comment and a link back to my blog.

I found these mini chairs at a yardsale and paid a whopping 10 cents a piece for them. I chose them for this challenge because they are colorful, cheerful and summery.

I had so much fun taking the first picture (in the coffee shop) that I continued to carry them around all day, photographing them in different settings.

Here are a few places the chairs found themselves today:

at the local coffee shop
with lovely Sarah, the bank teller

under a tree in the park

in the window of a fine furniture store

(can you find them? click on the photos for a closer view)

alas, only one green chair in the collection! hilarious! musie, you're more fun than a barrel of monkeys! i just wanted to ask you if your "moment of awareness" sidebar is something you have made. are those your questions?

The Fragrant Muse said...

Hi Kitty, wow, I haven't heard that expression in ages! Yes, the moment of awareness is something I just made up as well as the questions. Sometimes I just think about my own moment of awareness and what I'm feeling and type it out.

This is so cool. Love those miniatures. Great job!

Kitty said...

It's totally awesome. What a great way to incorporate mindfulness and yoga into everyday life. Couple of weeks ago you had one for forgiveness that was really good. I hope you've written these quips down so you can book them! Good stuff!

The Fragrant Muse said...

Thanks Kitty - actually I don't write them down and it recently occurred to me that I should jot them down in a notebook or keep a record of them somewhere. I'll start now. Better late than never!

The Fragrant Muse said...

JFKlaver: Thanks ~ It was a ball!

Cyndy said...

While I am likely to vote for any of the cow shots (being a central PA girl and all), I l.o.v.e. the choice you made with the flowers. Very cute!

The shot of visiting the store, though, was a riot!!

wv: worms: now that's boring...

Janet said...

what fun!!!! are they going in your fairy garden now?

Hit 40 said...

Very cute!! Your really did go a little wild with the chairs! My favorite is the first with the geranium.

Delena said...

They made me smile! Such fun. !

Lola England said...

I love them and I am sure that my kids would say that they are perfect for the Wood Elves and fairies . . . .

marinik said...

you are just too cute... love the shot at the furniture store :)

spudballoo said...

This is hysterical, you utter loon!!! Soon you'll be wearing a wig and photographing yourself around town....

Love this idea, such fun. I'm SO playing.

Where have your gremlins gone btw? I neeeeed them!

The Fragrant Muse said...

Cyndy: Those cows were so funny. The longer I fiddled with the chairs, the more lumbered over to see what was going on. By the time I was done, the fence was lined with cows sticking their snouts and tongues out. I rescued the chairs just in time! And the store was fun, too. I just asked the owner if I could step inside the window and take the shot and he said "sure". Central PA friendliness at it's best.

Janet: You know, I hadn't thought about it, but I suppose they could! I'm going to try it. Thanks for the idea.

Hit40: I did go wild and could have done it all day.

Delena: So glad it made you smile :-)

Lola: They would be perfect for the wood elves and fairies! Keep your eyes opened at yard sales...the lady I bought them from couldn't wait to get rid of them.

marinik: That's my favorite too. I only wish I'd take more shots like sitting on the furniture or farther back. I was trying to be respectful of the owner and got in and out in 10 minutes.

Spud: You know, you may be right! Amazing how courageous you get with a fancy pants camera. I've packed the gremlins off. Don't worry, they always find their way back when I least expect it which is their dastardly nature.

Great post! It really brightened my evening (do I want them bright? probably not, but it made me smile and that's always good)
I love the cows. I have a friend that is a dairy farmer and I "adopted" a baby cow. Well, till they sold it for meat =(
His name was Maynard. He looks like the one in your picture.
