Magical happenings in Edinburgh . . .

The tale of magical happenings in Edinburgh,
where tiny intricate sculptures are
left mysteriously about the city.
Nobody knows who puts them there,
but they are certainly causing a stir.
You can see a film clip about them here.

  1. How lovely! Like secret little worlds tucked away in their bookly habitat.
    I do find it very sad that some people are cynically minded enough to think it's a publicity stunt for the Council. I personally think that the artist wanted to evoke the mystery of story telling. Thanks for showing this Ruthie, I'm going to FB it! :)

  2. I hope that the artist is never discovered unless he or she chooses. It IS sad to see the cynicism, but I suddenly thought if the Council is doing this, well, what a lovely stunt to pull! There is still an artist creating. There is still magic happening. It is a sweet mystery.

    I'm jealous.

  8. Wonderful. Perhaps it's a little like guerilla gardening and guerilla knitting. Hope it catches on. I'm interested in some of the miniature oragami I've come across recently.

  13. What a beautiful magical story ! I agree with the woman in the bbc film, I don't want to know who is the artist, it's better to keep the mistery...

  14. What a lovely tale Ruthie. I've been in Edinburgh for a fair bit of my time at the moment and I didn't know a thing about this. Thank you.

  15. Love it! I'm sure there's a reason the artist is currently remaining anonymous... likely in order to create this kind of buzz. But I find it enchanting!
