Today’s Topic – A Small World

Sometime ago I created another blog called It’s a Small World because I like miniatures and am fascinated with nature up close. I will post a gallery below with some of my favourite small images.

For those of you who read my blog regularly, I mentioned yesterday that I was about to change my theme. I eventually decided on a theme called Cocoa. I haven’t explored it much as yet but hope to have some fun in making it the new home for allaboutwordswa 🙂

Having fun with microscopes :)

My son Joel bought me a microscope a few years ago. I indicated I would like one as I had one as a child and found it fascinating. It gave me an interest in science and what things are made of.

Called SuperEyes, it can be purchased on Amazon or Ebay and ranges between around $10A to around $200A. It plugs into my computer via a USB.

It is easy to use although the (free) software is a bit temperamental – just need to be patient and persevere with it :). The results are worth it.The item on the base of the microscope (a succulent from my garden)  is photographed and saved to my computer.

I set up another blog called It’s a Small World . You may like to check it out!

It really is a small world

When I was little, my Uncle Roy bought me a microscope for my birthday. I still remember my fascination at looking down the scope and being amazed to see a leaf transformed into something magical.

I had thought about buying myself a microscope to rediscover the small details we can’t see with the naked eye. My son, Joel, heard about this and bought me a microscope for my recent birthday – and I have had great fun with it. It is electronic and connects to my computer, in much the same way as they are used in medical procedures.

Below are some samples of what I have seen so far. These are images of fabrics in my home. They look very different from what we normally see.
