Sanrio’s newest deer: Hummingmint

hummingmint-deer-sanrio-1

Move over Deery-Lou, Sanrio has made way for a new deer called Hummingmint. To be honest I like this character better than Deery Lou, since she’s got a more subtle look and doesn’t look like a deer in the headlights. The story goes that Hummingmint was born in Norway and that’s what the image below it about:

Honestly I’ve got no clue to what this text says (O_o), but a Tumblr picture helped out:

Hummingmint was born at night with Aurora in the North. She is a female fawn.
Hummingmint likes singing, she also likes fruits and fashion.
In addition she likes the forest. She is full of curiosity with a tender heart.
Ah! It seems that she has a nice discovery in the forest today!

Well that clears thing up, I mean what deer doesn’t like singing and fashion, right? ;)

Sanrio has released a plethora of Hummingmint merchandise and I love the retro look! But most of all I’d like to get my hands on the plush version:

You can find the items on eBay and the official Japanese Hummingmint page.

The sweetest miniature doll rooms

At first sight this patisserie looks like heaven on earth, but upon closer inspection you can probably tell that all the objects are miniatures. The interior and pastries have been carefully crafted by Carolina Tyran. Her cute dioramas -of 40 x 30 cm- are suited for larger dolls such as Blythe and Pullip. You can even rearrange the details and furniture in it!

Pastel colored macarons that you’d best not sink your teeth into ;). I think they’ve been made from from polymer clay.

I can just imagine hearing the sea outside of this Light Blue Dreams room.

My personal favorite is the Seventies Rainbow doll room with it’s shōjo manga and Jetoy details <3

If you’d like to see more of Carolina’s work you can visit her Flickr or Etsy shop. The dioramas don’t come cheap at a price of $300. But I do think it’s a fair price for an unique handmade object that no doubt has taken days (if not weeks) to complete.
