Happy New Year!
I hope you had a good holiday, and tha 2014 brings you happiness, prosperity and lots of time for mini-ing!
I haven't had a huge amount of time, especially with the wedding coming up, but I have greatly enjoyed your blog posts, and have tried to grab a few quiet moments to make some things.
Turning my sights to the exterior, I really wanted to brighten up the facade with some flowers. I have three amazing white daffodils, made by Ilona, some snow drops and ivy from Georgie at the Miniature Garden, and some Christmas roses that I made using paper punches and watercolour paints.
Although they are all white (my favourite colour for flowers) I think they brighten up the stonework. Flowers are really great litle things to make, as they are relaively swift, and as a project, quite portable - so I could make them standing in the kitchen!
I also made some aquilegias, some of my favourite flowers, and, of course, some tiny Jonquil narcissi - the yellow ones were made from another Miniature Garden kit f 24th scale daffodils, the white narcissi I made. The three pots came from One Pottery, on Etsy - I love their pots, such lovely warm colours, and perfectly in scale.
The jonquils look particulary sweet on the bedroom dresser, and I only wish I could make them smell as lovely as they do in real life!
