Can you hear this?? 

No?  Me neither.

Guess what, that’s totally normal. Unless you’re a monster (yep, quite a nice way to detect them by the way), you can’t hear that “delightful” sound… that sweet melody, tooootally out of tunes: the sound of the “fish choir”…

But it’s not a big deal to not hear it…I mean, look at those faces, it’s like you can almost hear them!

 

I agree, I can spot some not singing at all or just pretending…but hey, we can’t blame them… We’ve all done the same 🙂

If you want to see some more, I invite you here

And if you feel like knowing a bit more about the silly fishes, and in the same time discovering plenty of very talented polymer clay artists, I invite you to read Polymer Clay Daily from Cynthia Tinapple 🙂

-Food chains-

If you look into marine food chains closely, you’ll find out “ishly” that sharks eat octopuses, octopuses eat crabs, crabs eat clams and clams eat plankton. You can complicate the scheme by introducing squids and stingrays, both predators of small fishes, mollusks and crustaceans, and prey of sharks and big fishes. Then you can add into the picture, seabirds, predators of fishes and basically all leftovers of food reachable on earth (from pizza,  french fries to vomit…yeah I know disgusting but true), and according to Mother Nature  and google those guys are the prey of sharks (again). So if I must summarize and apply this to all the sea creatures I have in my apartment (and ok, also in my head), I know who’s eating my hermit crabs, clams, crabs, fishes, stingrays, squids, octopuses, birds, and sharks. Then if I think correct, the next question is who’s eating the sharks and my whales, since if I wanna keep that place as an nice ecosystem, I need predators for those 2 guys. Google my hero pops up again, and says, that besides killer whales, predators of baby whales and some sharks, Humans are theirs predators. In other words, I’m supposed to kill my whales and my sharks if I don’t want to be invaded. You can imagine that I won’t do that. Ever. And I won’t ask Fairy Mariette for killer whales either since I don’t like those. So what can I do?

Here is my answer:

Have a fun sunday people 🙂

THEY ARE BACK!

For those who followed this wonderful blog from the very beginning… WhaAat? Was I the only one following it??

Well, then, you might need a refresh otherwise you won’t understand the importance of the news. 

They are back.

Who?

Well, those who decided to party last night in my living room! And if you’d follow my stories, you would know that 3 years ago, I woke up, one night, because of noise in my living room. And what did I find partying and coming from nowhere? Geese.

Yes, geese. I did not recognize it first, because the only thing I saw was pairs of surprised eyes glowing in the dark, like this:

And like his…

chuchotement

And, yeah, it was a bunch of geese, and believe me they know how to party…(they might be a bit danish…). Anyway, to continue in the “refreshment”, I found geese, did not know what to do with, then the Fairy Mariette appeared in my living room too (you would be surprised of how many people/things you could cross in that living room), and she told me to make mobiles with it, to take care of child while they sleep. 

It sounded interesting, so I said yes. (I’m not sure I really had the choice though). 

Anyway, for at least 2 big years, no geese news, and not that much news from the Fairy Mariette. 

I can say now that both are back. Like, back back. Don’t know if I should be happy about it. Anyway, here you go, first pic of a geese serial (I know, I should redo my nail polish, no worries…on the “to do list”).

Enjoy people and sleep tight, who knows what’s gonna wake you up tonight 😉

I hope you had a nice Xmas! Mine has been a tiny bit disturbed… I’ve been attacked by pirate whales… and pirate fishes… I guess this is what happens when you live close to the sea! Anyway, I wonder what’s going to happen for new year’s eve…

I wish you a wonderful new year!

Allez hop, direction la France!

Et oui, aujourd’hui expédition de 5 mobiles pour des vacances “prolongées”…en France! Allez hop tout le monde  dans la valise! Et c’est à moi que ça va en faire des vacances aussi, car ces petites bestioles font la java toutes les nuits! Depuis que j’ai eu le malheur de parler de Paul le poulpe capable de vous pronostiquer un match de foot, mes poulpes me font la guerre et veulent aussi se lancer dans le business… Mais ils n’y connaissent rien en fooooot! Et puis la coupe du monde c’est finit, mais non, rien à faire. Du coup, je préfère prévenir les “heureux” destinataires, pour ceux qui vont recevoir des poulpes, il est possible qu’ils se mettent à pronostiquer un peu de tout et de n’importe quoi, laissez faire, ça va leur passer… Heureusement dans l’expédition il y a aussi quelques baleines, et j’ai remarqué qu’elles avaient tendance à temporiser les accès de folies de mes poulpoïdes. Quoi? Des baleines? Mais il n’y en avait plus des baleines! Non, il n’y en avait plus depuis le mois d’avril (?) dernière fois où il est tombé de la neige. Je rappelle, les baleines tombent avec la neige, les poulpes, calamars et palourdes débarquent dans mon évier, quand aux volatiles, c’est dans mon arbre magique que ça se passe. Mais, me direz-vous, tu ne vas quand même pas nous faire croire qu’il a neigé hier au Danemark??? Non, je me doute que pour le coup, je ne serais pas très plausible… Mais! Figurez-vous qu’hier il y a eu un énorme orage, et bonne nouvelle, les baleines tombent aussi avec la foudre! Ha! Vous ne vous y attendiez pas à ça! Et bien moi non plus, et récupérer des baleines en catastrophe sous la pluie, le vent et les éclairs, ce n’est pas une mince affaire! Enfin voilà, tout ça pour vous dire que, bientôt des mobiles baleines, toujours des mobiles poulpoïdes, et d’ailleurs je vous mets la photo du petit dernier en attendant la photo des baleines!

Nino and the little Mermaid…

I was in Copenhagen this week, to see the famous little mermaid of Hans Christian Andersen. I wanted to take a picture of the mermaid to send to my new nephew, Nino… So, I take my bike, direction the rock of the little mermaid…


Once arrived, no mermaid. I look everywhere, on the mermaid’s rock, beside the rock, behind the rock, NO MERMAID!!!

But where is the mermaid? And there, I saw a little paper, on the rock, a little piece of paper, to explain that the mermaid is in…Shangai!! Shangai?! But what a such idea??

The mermaid has decided to go in Shangai for few holydays, and because sometimes she thinks the weather is a little bit cold in Copenhagen, and because sometimes she just wants to travel too and not stay on her rock and see people who come from everywhere to see her…

So I can understand the reason why she wanted to go, but I was sad, not to have my picture of the little mermaid for my nephew Nino… And this is at this time, that the Fairy Mariette appears. Aaaaaah, the Fairy Mariette! “But what are you doing here Fairy Mariette??


“I’m here because of you! I’m looking for you everywhere! And this is your cat who says me that you were in Copenhagen for 2 days, (by the way, I think you’re going to find surprises in your apartment, your cat has made a big party I think…)”


“Ok, ok Fairy Mariette, don’t be mad, I’m here, you find me, what do you want?”

” I need you to do something important, I’ve rescued from the sink of my neighbor, some octopuses, clams and fishes. And I know that a little boy is borned a few days ago, and I’m sure that would be nice to give him this critters in mobiles of course.”

“Yes, ok, no problem Fairy Mariette, sure, I can do that. Can you just say me who boy is it?”

“This is Nino, a baby boy borned in France, close to the sea…”

“Mmmm, this is funny …I think I know him… So ok, Fairy Mariette, don’t worry I take care of that. And at the same time, I know you know the little Mermaid, so if you can just say to her hello… and maybe if you can give her my adress, the next time she’ll able to prevent me that she is not here!”

So, I’ve taken with me, the octopuses, the clams and the fishes, I’ve made a new Ptitmobile, and this one is only for you, my little nephew…

Tillykke med fødselsdagen Consul’s daughter!

For 7 springs now, the nimble and delicat fingers of the Consul’s Daughter shape for us jewelry that seem to have been gleaned in the fields, gardens, orchards… All of this of course over the different seasons! Sometimes I wonder if Mother Nature and Delphine Roche de Montgrand are not born of the same family… Me, I think yes… Happy Birthday to you Consul’s Daugther!


Cela fait maintenant 7 printemps que les doigts agiles et délicats de La Fille du Consul nous modèlent des bijoux qui sembleraient avoir été glanés dans les champs, les jardins, les vergers… Tout ça bien sur au grès des différentes saisons! A se demander parfois si Dame Nature et Delphine Roche de Montgrand ne seraient pas parentes… Moi je crois que oui… Très bon anniversaire Fille du Consul

And for the news concerning the PtitsMobiles, the first new is, I close the shop for a while… Because all of the PtitsMobiles move to a little exhibition in Aarhus (thanks Dorte!). And the second new is, I’m going to have less time to make mobiles now, buuuuuut don’t worry, I’ll always find time sure!

Pour les nouvelles concernant les PtitsMobiles, la première est que je vais fermer la boutique un certain temps… parce que tous les PtitsMobiles déménagent pour leur 1ère petite  expo à Aarhus (Merci Dorte!). Et pour la seconde nouvelle, et bien je vais avoir moins de temps maintenant pour faire des mobiles, mais ne vous inquiétez pas, je trouverai toujours du temps!

Dear Louise… Chère Louise…

Dear Louise,

Thanks to the Fairy Mariette, I’ve heard that you were arrived in the world a couple of weeks ago. So, welcome, I hope it’s still also confortable and cozy as in your tummy’s mummy.

For this occasion, I send you goose‘s Ptitsmobile, you are going to understand very fastly that it will be helpful for starting your life.

The goose can protect you in your sleep, for example if sometimes you are scared by bad dreams, monster or I don’t know what in your bedroom, the goose will be here with their phosophorescent eyes specialised in the detection of bad dreams or monsters. And when the goose eyes detect bad dreams and monsters, they catch them and pinch them with their beaks! You can understand easily that in this condition they don’t stay longer!

Of course like everything, sometimes the phosphorescent eyes detector doesn’t work very well, and it’s possible that your parents will be pinch too, buuuuut, nothing is perfect and it’s better to pinch parents and bad dreams and have a good sleep than pinch nobody and sleep bad! And you can be happy because last time, I’ve send hermit crab, and now I have troubles with parents who are pinch all the time by them (I don’t know why) and beleive me a pinch of hermit crab this is not a pinch of geese! That hurts much more!

So I hope you’re going to enjoy your life with your news friends…

Take care

E.

Ps: You can find in attached a picture of new critters, the guinea-fowl for fridge, I could tell you this story anothertime!


Chère Louise,

J’ai appris grâce à la Fée Mariette que tu étais venue au monde il y a quelques jours. Alors, bienvenue! J’espère que c’est aussi douillet et confortable ici que dans le ventre de ta maman.

Pour cette occasion, je t’envoie un Ptitsmobile Oie, tu vas vite te rendre compte combien il te sera utile. Les oies vont te protéger dans ton sommeil, quand par exemple tu feras de mauvais rêves ou qu’il y aura des monstres dans ta chambre. Les yeux phosphorescents des oies sont des détecteurs à monstres et à cauchemars… et quand ils en ont repérés, les monstres et les cauchemars sont attrapés et pincés par les oies! Tu imagines que dans de telles conditions, ils ne resteront pas bien longtemps à t’importuner.

Par contre, rien n’est parfait et il peut arriver que le détecteur à montres ne fonctionne pas très bien. Il n’est pas rare que certains parents soient pincés… Maaaaaais la vie est ainsi faite et il vaut mieux pincer parents et monstres et dormir tranquille la nuit plutôt que de ne rien pincer du tout et faire de mauvais rêves! Et puis tu peux t’estimer heureuse car j’ai envoyé dernièrement un Ptitsmobile Bernard l’hermite, et j’ai de gros problèmes avec les parents qui se font pincer régulièrement et, crois moi un pincement de crabe c’est bien plus douloureux qu’un pincement d’oie!

Bon, je te souhaite une belle vie avec tes nouveaux amis.

Prends soin de toi.

E.

Ps: tu trouveras en attaché une photo de mes nouvelles bestioles, les pintades de frigo… mais je t’en dirai plus une autre fois.

What have you planned today? Qu’avez-vous prévu aujourd’hui?

Because today, I’ve planned to go to the art modern museum of Aarhus, Aros. Yes, the fairy Mariette who came last night, says me that there is a poor and alone Boy in this museum, and that maybe could be a great idea to give him a PtitMobile, like this, nights will be more funny. Of course, I can do that, it’s raining today, so it’s the perfect day to go to museum. And can you imagine that, a boy, alone, every day, every night, without friends to play! I don’t know yet, which one I’m going to give him, I’ve received new critters yesterday from the Fairy Mariette:


So if you want to help me to choose, you’re welcome!


Qu’avez-vous prévu aujourd’hui? Parce qu’aujourd’hui, j’ai prévu d’aller au musée d’art moderne d’Aarhus, le musée Aros. Et oui, parce que la fée Mariette est passée hier soir, et m’a dit que dans ce musée il y avait un malheureux et seul garçon (le Boy), et que ça pouvait être une super idée de lui apporter un PtitMobile pour égayer un peu plus ses nuits. Bien sur, j’ai accepté et ça tombe plutôt bien car il pleut aujourd’hui et c’est un jour parfait pour aller au musée! Et pouvez-vous imaginer ça, un petit garçon seul, toute la journée, toute la nuit dans un grand musée sans ami pour jouer! Je ne sais pas encore quel PtitMobile je vais lui apporter, la Fée Mariette n’est pas venue les mains vides hier et je ne sais quoi choisir! Si vous voulez m’aider à choisir, cliquez ici!
