Saying hello! Welcome to new followers :)

Thank you so much for starting to follow happenings here at "mikropragmatakia-Littlethings"!
Ganz Herzlichen Dank ,dass ihr neue Blogbegleiter geworden seid hier!
wee ee ♥

as you might remember, Caramel was a bit left at the side lately...he very intensly complained last night...

and got new trousers then ( to start the winter clothing:) ...and later even got a new fluffy, warm, comfortable friend..who will take him through the next days...as Anna is busy with moving houses and he will have to wait (again..sigh..) for her attention! That's also the reason, Praline took the (last...sigh... ) chance to put up her feet , while trying out some little furniture a customer ordered!

He loves him!!!

Dale from http://dalesdreams.blogspot.gr/ posted some wonderful photos of my mini-books on her facebookpage....that was so sweet of her! ( remember , i won that pretty pink little cushion for Praline's kitchen!)
these are Dale's photos...so exciting my books are there now!! :)

Interesting? interessant?


real little bricks and mortar..It is about "toys"...but might be quite useful for "building houses" :)

echte Ziegelsteine und Moertel...Es handelt sich um "Spielzeug"....aber das sieht mir auch zum "Haus Bauen" recht nuetzlich aus! :) 

update!! Neues : 

Ilona (see comments below please!!) knew these bricks and says: 
Some years ago these bricks were found in Holland in the supermarket as childrens toys. It workes wonderful, it is a bit large for scale 1:12. But very useful to build some garden miniatures, like a bbq.

Ilona (unten in den Kommentaren ist ihr blog) kennt diese Steinchen etc und sagt:
Es gab das als Kinderspielzeug in Holland. Ist toll zu bearbeiten, aber etwas zu gross fuer 1:12. Kann aber prima fuer z.B. "Garten-bau", und weiteres benutzt werden! 

Mini Jazzi is in Mexico! :)

...with dear friend Rosamargarita! That will be fun ....:)
This is Rosamargarita's blog!

Praline is so lucky that Conni made her, Caramel thinks...! 
he doesn't know where he was made...but i told him, it must have been a very nice person,too -otherwise he would not be so cute! 

Praline hat Glueck, dass Conni sie gemacht hat, findet Caramel!
Er weiss selber garnicht, wo er herkommt. Aber ich habe ihm gesagt, dass er bestimmt auch von einer so netten "Mama" wie Connie gemacht wurde..denn sonst waer er doch nicht so niedlich!

Caramel wants bigger feet :) Caramel moechte groessere Fuesse! :)

the middle of october...much to do except minis...so i am mostly planning but also doing some evening work for xmas-minis already ! I so much wanted to try to have a "MINI-Adventskranz" ( the 4-candle-wrath, the traditional German pre-christmas decoration) ...as also in my real house, i can't do without!
I used branches from a n(again thrown-away and found) artificial , realsize, christmas-tree, cut down a lot....and there we are!
As is was a BIG tree...i think i can make some more....if anybody wants one, let me know!!! :)
Last year i made the Santa-Clouds-House"...this year there will be a new scene, which is slowly starting to shape...i hope i can show you more over the weekend!
i also made the candles...and some pieces of "Stollen"...christmas -bread, which is always made very early as there are many spices in it!
Mein Adventskraenzchen, selbstgemachte Kerzen und Stollen! 

Then i found Caramel standing on his little chair...searching through his socks...although not yet winterly dressed...he is also getting involved into christmas-preparations. First of all he needs to find some socks big enough to hang at the fireplace AND for the presents he wants! But that's difficult, as he is so small....
...there must be a solution!!!! :) We are working on it!
Caramel sucht seine Socken zusammen, fuer den Kamin und fuer seine Weihnachtsgeschenke...aber er ist sooo klein! Irgendeine Loesung muss es doch geben...wir arbeiten dran! :)

Rena from Thessaloniki with the blogs....


....is a multi-talented lady ..with a big heart! :) She sent me this beautiful little summer-memory, made in a cap! She likes re-using and recycling most and has the most incredible ideas! Visiting her blog is worthwhile! :)
She doesn't speak much English..that's why she doesn't leave comments on your blogs...but she is quite a regular visitor!
She is the one, who had organized ( with never-ending energy!!) the exhibition for the more than 180 drawers from all over Greece...and is now again active with a new challange for an exhibition of
hand-made saving-boxes/houses/towers........:)
Rena especially asked me to tell you about this new exhibition...as it is open to all of you and of course it would be just wonderful to have some international participation! The saving-boxes (as the drawers before) will be exhibited and sold for a charity purpose in Greece. There is more to read about this in the second blog "Greek bloggers' activities"! There are a lot of great events going on and Rena is one of the leading persons behind them!

you can also see the saving boxes on facebook...new ones are added every day!!! there are 359 already...we would love to make them 500 or more!

a moment of peace and beauty..for all of you!

Giac just left such a kind comment....and wanting to thank him  and all of you for coming here so often..
here are some beautiful pictures my sister took during her week on Corfu, after helping me here at the hospital  with my husband (who is back home today and recovery is proceeding well! ) .
Just enjoy!

There are many "waves" in life...but also moments of silence and peace! :)

( just in case you might want to visit the place...it is the seaside village Agios Stefanos on the very north/west corner of the island of Corfu in the Ionian sea! )

Jazzi's giveaway...more like christmas! :)

I had been the  super-whoopie-happy Winner of Jazzi's 200 followers' GIVEAWAY from
where she had been talking about a little "giftbox"!
Well...the giftbox arrived and there were so many beautiful little minis...as if it was Christmas already! :)
Thank you so much Jazzi!:)  I love them all, you can see many have already found their place! And i know exactly what to make with the other! :)
You even sent two (!!) of your modern chairs...i was overwhelmed! So kind and generous of you! That means i will have to do some "modern scene"! I will!!!
There we are:

Ich hatte vor einiger Zeit schon bei Jazzi die Verlosung zu ihren 200 Blogbegleitern gewonnen! Da hate sie eine "Geschenkpaeckchen" versprochen....das heute angekommen ist...und fast wie ein Weihnachtspaket war! so viel war drin! Ganz ganz vielen Dank Jazzi! Die meisten Teile haben schon ihren Platz gefunden..wie ihr seht! Und bei den anderen weiss ich auch schon, was damit gebastelt wird! Ganz doll gefreut habe ich mich auch ueber die 2 modernen Stuehle...das heisst naemlich, dass ich demnaechst auch mal etwas Modernes machen werde! :) 

Hier ist alles: 
Praline got 2 suitcases/boxes, a new silver perfume, 2 bubble-baths, AND a "sweetheart-foto-book-medalion" ....which she simply adores! (i think she has got  a secret sweetheart!!! .?) , and a new beautiful cushion which she immedeately took up onto her Spa-Sofa!!! and a little pair of scissors.
 Praline hat 2 Koefferchen bekommen, ein Parfuem in einer Silberflasche, 2 Schaumbaeder, Und ein Foto-Schatz-Buch/Medalion....das sie ganz toll findet! (ich glaube, sie ist heimlich verliebt!!! ?) , ein neues Kissen fuer ihr Spa-Sofa, ein Scherchen!
Caramel and the "gang" are proudly and very "foto-conciously" presenting their new GLOBE, a pair of binoculars AND a metal treasure box which actually opens! and a cute white little bear! ( o dear..that makes 4 of them now!) 
 Caramel und seine "Bande" praesentieren stolz - und "foto-bewusst" ihren neuen Globus, ein Fernglas und eine Schatztruhe aus Metall, die richtig aufgeht! und ein kleines weisses Teddybaerchen ...( o...nun sind sie schon zu viert!) 
Jazzi also sent the cutest tea-pot ever, a beautiful blue glassbottle, tiny tiny deco-material for cookies and a metal cookiebox WITH the lid...which Caramel took to serve his friends some cookies! 
Jazzi hat noch mehr geschickt...eine ganz suesse winzig kleine Teekanne, winziges Streudecko fuer Plaetzchen, eine wunderschoene blaue Flasche und eine Metalldose fuer Kekse MIT Deckel, den aber Caramel schon genommen hat, um seinen Freunden Kekse draufzutun! 

and here is "the rest"...many many beautiful ever so tiny stickers, floorpieces ( or furniture-building pieces) , more bottles, the chairs,....:) 
und hier ist der "Rest"...viele viele winzig kleine Sticker, Bodenplaten (oder Moebel-Bau-Teile), noch mehr Flaeschchen, UND die Stuehle!!! :)


and now "stay tuned" for 
the winner of my Giveaway tomorrow! :) 

und nun ...freut euch auf den Gewinner 
von meiner Verlosung morgen! :)
