A bucket full of flowers…

Was just going through some photos and came across a floral mini I made for an exchange gift at our year end party for Miniature Club of BC. Thought I’d share. Only made this one but I really like the flower combination so I might make some more flowers and maybe put them in the […]

Rustic stone planter

November 8, 2014 | 0

Had seen a similar looking stone pot with lavender and tried recreating it for gifts to my two friends the “mniteers”. They had been wanting some peonies, but wanted for their garden. Take a look I made 3 and kept the little one. Had a lot of fun making them and will be making more […]

June 19, 2014 | 0

A little gift I made when the “miniteers”went visiting a new mini friend for lunch.  She is making a French inspired florist shop. First time making peonies and the tall tin vases. They are not from kits, I cut my own petals and leaves to assemble.  A lot of fun. I am finding that I […]

Wisteria trellis

October 28, 2013 | 0

This Garden trellis was a fixer upper.  Someone in our group put it in the share case and I rescued it. Removed the flowers it had on it, removed the old paint, repainted and added the wisteria plant. I  made the wisteria from “flowersoft”.  It was a lot of fun and I hope to make […]
