Back to the origins with a Pooh Bear

Six miniature shows, last year, too much work, too little sleep, too much things to fix between family, childrens and miniatures and now I really need to slow down.
I want to go "back to the origins" making just things I love to do (isn't that the dream of most people?).
So this time I want to show you something I made that really gave me pleasure (you've probably already spotted it into my banner), a little Pooh Bear ... 15mm tall (approx 0.55"):



... then, looking into my thrift box I found a toadstool made with cold porcelain, and a teapot I crocheted some time ago:


The teapot is really small, just 7mm (approx 0.24") and is crocheted with my wonder 0.4mm hook and sewing thread.
And then .... mumble mumble what little Pooh is making with a teapot, and a toadstool?
A picnic of course!!!
So I added a little cherry pie in a quarter scale, a little gingham towel, some grass, a little box, and  ... taaa-daaah:




This is my first "back to the origins" ...

Deep in the hundred acrewood
where Christopher Robin plays
You'll find the enchanted neighborhood
of Christopher's childhood days
A donkey named Eeyore is his friend
and Kanga and little Roo
There's Rabbit and Piglet and there's Owl,
but most of all Winnie the Pooh

Winnie the Pooh
Winnie the Pooh
Tubby little cubby all stuffed with fluff
He's Winnie the Pooh
Winnie the Pooh
Willy nilly silly old bear
