I am still here

 As usual I have my pics all out of order ....again :( Oh well bear with me please. Ive been working on some flowers for my flower seller.
 There are some amazing tutorials on 1 inch minis , the link should be on my blogs list :)I am always amazed at what she can make from paper I decided to give one a go ,here it is in progress.
 Ive been soaking and dying moss ha ha I think I have enough for 10 years;)
 The bunches of lavender were made from these flower stamens I found in a cake decorating shop.They are painted with washes of colour ...they work for me :)
 I bought a border cutter with a tiny leaf pattern on it I need to seperate the leaves ( I think they will work for roses :)
 Here I was trying to prove to myself that not having a particular resorce readily available ( such as quilling paper) I shouldnt be detered from making minis :) This is a half made jug ,I wanted to show you it before I painted it etc so that you can see I have simply used junk mail catalogue, When the pattern called for card I just glued pages together til it was thick enough .....I love recycling :)
 Here  are 2 jugs I made from the tutorial the one on the right is finished as it is on 1inch minis ....but  the one on the left I took a different approach and gave it a textured finish and attempted to make it look like aged copper ....Im having fun with these ...they will probably pop up in all kinds of guises ;)
last but not least the view (dollshouse ) from the top bedroom ( 3rd floor) down the staircase ....hmm guess I should have vacuumed before I took this !!!!


  1. Oh your flower lady is adorable - and love the flowers! As I have seen - you really see so much in things that others don't - and work wonders!! Love the dollhouse view.. haha in fact I love that you didn't vacuum - a work in progress!! Must try those jugs - they turned out beautifully!! XXX

  2. Interesting picture you have taken out over the stairs. A fine idea you have found to make lavenel of. You have made many fine things. Keep up the good work.

  3. You are a truely resourceful lady. I love the lavenders and the jugs. The flower woman is awsome. Great work!
    Hugs, Drora

  4. What a clever person you are! I love the jugs and the unfinished one appeals too, very Picasso looking.
    Also the leaf border punch is a great find, separating the leaves will keep you busy for a while. Don't worry about not vacuuming, I haven't either!
    Hugs, Vicki.
