I have an odd fascination for all things that are miniature versions of usual size items.

What can I say? I like little. It might have something to do with the fact that I’m not a very big person myself.

Like a lot of people, I like the obvious little things like puppies, kittens, babies, tiny meerkats (ok so maybe that’s just me), but I also love it when something forms perfectly in it’s ‘full grown’ state, just on a tiny scale.

Like this wee guy!

I had to put my ring next to it to give it perspective. It’s so tiny! But absolutely perfect!

I can’t imagine it will give much heat to a Spag Bol or Chilli Beef due to it’s Itty Bitty size but we’ll use it anyway so it get’s to do all the things ‘grown up’ chillies get to do : )
