Bits & Pieces: Le Animale

  • A couple of days ago I mentioned poppytalk handmade, and how easy it is to make great Etsy finds when you use poppytalk as a reference. Another fantastic booth at poppytalk? Le Animale, maker of tiny clay animal totems and jewelry. According to Le Animale’s blog, these small-scale sculptures were born from a desire for a miniature zoo. I love tiny things, and the animal totems small enough to sit on a fingertip may be the most charming thing I’ve ever seen–add that to the list of things I wish I knew how to make.

No thanks–but I do always enjoy the puzzle my family does together on Thanksgiving day to stave off the boredom of a world in which everything is closed. This year, I’m even more excited to break into the Lego set I’ll be building!
