It's been a while since I posted in here. Now that the weather is cooling down and almost all the (real) yard/garden is almost ready for the colder months, I'll begin mini making again! Probably next month tho since some of the (real) house also needs 'winterizing' :)
A BIG Thank You! to all of my patient followers - you all ROCK!!

Have been busy with custom orders, plus my Dad passed away a couple weeks ago and I've been dealing with everyday life stuff.

Thank you to all of you who continue to follow this much neglected blog.  Eventually I'll have some new pics to post.

Update Re Golden Unicorn Miniatures Etsy Shop


To all my customers, friends, and family...

If any one of you have been getting spam emails from Etsy, I want you to be aware that it is THEY and not me who is sending them.  Accept my apology if you have received any. 

As soon as I became aware that Etsy was publicly making all private information available, I opted-out of their idiotic wannabe social network but I'm not sure if my opt-out was quick enough.  All my once favorite sellers have been deleted, and no one is in a "circle" via my shop.

My Etsy store will remain on 'vacation mode' indefinitely.  

Thank you.

My Etsy Shop

Due to Etsy's massive invasion of all their sellers' privacy,  my shop there will remain on 'vacation mode' until Etsy returns to being a selling site rather than a wannabe social site.  Who knows how long that will be? Your guess is as good as mine.

The Language of Trees

I love trees, and when I saw the following blog post and read the accompanying lovely poem by my friend, Esmaa, I wanted to share it with you:



The Language of Trees
by Esmaa Self


Deep in the forest

Snow Flocked Trees in the Woods


and high on the hill,


More big trees covered in snow.

Expectation of the Dawn ~ Waikamoi Rainforest Maui Hawai'i


trees have voice.


Arbutus in the fog


If you would hear their speech,



if you would learn their words,

you will venture far from mankind.


Will you stay with me?


You will learn to pick out the childlike pop, the joy...


Beech leaves in November


water shed park


the wail, the crackling moans of standing timber.



Same place on a cold March day


Eventually you will learn to walk in silence.

If you would know the language of trees,
you will walk very far in silence.

Model Horses and Their Scales

What is a model horse?


Model horses or toy horses are scale replicas of real horses and are highly collectible. Most model horses are in the 1:9 scale (such as Breyer Traditionals and Stone Horses) while others are no bigger than mice, such as Breyer Stablemates and Stone Chips.


What are the model horse scales?

*Traditional Series: Approximately 12"L x 9"H - Scaled to 1/9th scale
*Classics Series: Approximately 9"L x 6"H - Scaled to 1/12th scale
*Paddock Pals: Approximately 6"L x 5"H - Scaled to 1/24th scale
*Stablemates Series: Approximately 4"L x 3"H - Scaled to 1/32nd scale
*Mini Whinnies: Approximately 1.5"L x 1.5"H - Scaled to 1/64th scale

Four days into the new year and 'life' is still getting in the way of my making new miniatures and re-opening my Etsy shop.  One of these days soon...
