Tiny dioramas under glass

Yesterday I finished these scenes under glass. Left to right: This one is travel-inspired. A pink suitcase is filled with clothes, binoculars, a necklace and map. The top is wrapped with cheesecloth, tied with blue-and-white bakery twine, and topped with three vintage mother-of-pearl buttons.

The second is gardening-inspired. Some posies poke through the earth; some nest in a watering can perched on gardening gloves. It’s topped with reindeer moss and a vintage crystal button.

The third is a ballerina in a cloud of lametta and sequins; the top is wrapped in part of a vintage kerchief, topped with a crystal vintage button.

Each is four inches high.
