Miniature Container Gardens

Hi all,

I made these miniature gardens about three weeks ago. These photos show you how the little gardens currently look. I used several ground covers: Scotch moss, creeping thyme, Blue Star, and rosemary for the "trees", and other small plants I found at the nursery shop. The containers are twelve inches wide and sufficiently deep for the project. When I planted them, there were not flowering yet...however, you can see the sweet tiny, tiny flowers blooming all over in the second photo.

About two weeks ago...

A little rabbit enjoys the greens...

A pair of gnomes in this one; although you can only see one in the pic...I do need to re-paint them, the sun from last Summer fade them out...poor guys!

Can you see the ducks making their way across the bridge?

I hope you like them and inspire you to try making one or two mini gardens. They are fun and easy to make.

Have a great day!

Thank you so much for taking precious time to visit my blog. I have to admit that I am not the best blogger in town since I don't post often...that chore called work keeps me pretty busy.

Any way, I will be posting new photos from my latest miniature adventures soon. Also, we have a challenge project (given by our miniature's club president),so I will try to present some pics to you as I inch along with this one.

Again, thank you for your visit!!

Isabellas's playhouse

Back again with a new project, a small one. This is going to be a child's playhouse; the kind you would find in some backyards (when you have the space!). It is 1/12" scale, and the body is made out of gator board which is very sturdy and it will not warp. In the first photo, the whole house is held together with masking tape for "dry fit" purposes.

I used scrapbook paper for the wallpaper and found a pretty border for the top. Next, I used already made "hardwood" flooring and handpainted a design with rabbits and chicks...I think the chicks are a little hard to see in the photo. Any way, I am yet to polish the floor before I glue it into place. I am going to apply siding for outer walls,and dye some wood shingles for the roof. I have hand painted the ceiling in sky blue with clouds and some tiny birds flying here and there.

I will have more pictures of the latest progress...however, I appreciate your patient because I am slow at this blogging thing :) and I have too many mini projects going on.

Thank you very much for your visit and have a good one!!!

A quarter scale garden shed

Hello everyone and thank you for stopping by. Today, I would like to share photos of my most recent completed project. It is a quarter scale garden shed, measuring 6.5 x 4.5 inches this little piece stands tall among my other larger scale houses. It was a joy to work with and I am happy with the results considering this was the first time I worked on this tiny scale.

To the side of the house you can see the attached green house which I made from a kit. The fence with gardening gloves is made from toothpicks, the bird feeder was made using metal findings and some white paint to give it a shabby look.

I need to add more gardening stuff, might be spread some dirt around...it looks a little too clean LOL... I'll get to that later.
Thank you again for your valuable visit,
