Secret Adventures of Tiny Things

Hi ho! This week's Round Robin Photo Challenges topic, Tiny Things, was suggested by, well, me!

Here at the Museum of the Weird, there are quite a few tiny things: Barbie and Remco accessories, china animals, a tiny plastic snake, and so on. Who knows what they get up to in the quiet of the day or the middle of the night, when I'm in here messing about online? I grabbed my camera this week, snuck around, and found out!

Exhibit A: the plastic kingsnake climbs into our poinsettia plant. I can't prove it, but I suspect that Talking Stacey gave him a ride over there on Casey's Vespa, carrying him in Tutti's watering can. That's my conspiracy theory!

Exhibit B: the china Spaniel family auditions to be Thurber dogs.

Exhibit C: Lady Skunk helps me with my novel. No wonder there seem to be fewer typos lately.

Meanwhile, outside, the Matchbox cars are drag racing on Calle Mumble!

Look at 'em go!

Zoom! I'm afraid the sedan and the convertible are going to have a hard time catching the gold sports car.

Still, for such intrepid adventurers, even a race around the world is child's play.

Now let's go see what tiny things our other Robins have found!

How funny is the car race. My money is on the yellow car! Love the skunk on the keys. This was a fun one.

The race around the world shot is awesome! And the Thurber dog shot is very clever. I love Thurber, too.

Karen, Love your tiny things! And your very clever photos! I hope I'll get better at designing my pix as time goes on. Thanks for welcoming me to Round Robin! :D

Sandcastle Momma said...

It also looks like so much fun at your house! I love the snake in the poinsettia and those racing cars look like a lot of fun. There's nothing like a good drag race between matchbox cars. Awesome picture of them racing around the world!

Robinella said...

Love tiny things in flower pots. You just never know what critters you'll find there! :-)

Suzanne R said...

Your clever, creative mind has been very much at work here! How fun!

Monica said...

Oh what a FUN entry! I love the last shot and what you did. You have a creative mind, no denying that. Enjoyed ALL of them.


Carly said...

Now that's cute! The Thurber dog auditions made me smile. :) It's been too long since I took down my Thurber book, and climbed inside. As for the cars, I am rooting for the bright yellow one in the back. I am sitting her, trying really hard to name that car, it's right on the tip of my already pointy brain, and no luck. It's just not coming to me. And the bad part, I am pretty sure my mom once drove one just like it, not yellow of course, her's was rusty red.

Kiva said...

Shame on Talking Stacey trying to scare the poinsettia plant into blooming by planting a snake! There is nothing like Thurber dogs, I hope the spaniel makes it. Oh, boy, I'm going to drink that bottle that says DRINK ME and get into those cars and play!

The cars racing around the world with the cosmos as a backdrop is the coolest picture! Glad you still have some fun things to do... unemployment is the pits... I hope you find a job soon! Is the sleeping improving lately? bea

I can see why you chose the "tiny" topic.

Steven said...

You really know how to lay out a spread of photos. The skunk is great. Love the cars and what you've done with them. Excellent topic!
