Royal Wedding Fever....!

Heheh, when I saw these plates I just had to have a souvenir of the Royal Wedding!
My fuzzy photo doesn't do them justice, they are really really lovely and made me smile.

Another smile :)
A parcel arrived in the mail yesterday unexpectedly from a dear friend.
Don't you love surprises!!
I was gobsmacked when I opened it to reveal a whole box full of beautiful wicker that she'd made.
This chest is just one piece!
Adelaide claimed it immediately and dressed it up with her favourite things.

I just love it!!
And I love all the other bits which will turn up in photos soon!


Happy Easter

Easter Greetings,
hoping for peace and family time for everyone.
These are my miniature Easter makings for 2011.
The basket is an old one with a shabby facelift,
the birdie-on-a-stick is new,
the nest is new,
as are the Easter Eggs and the pull-along-bunny.
Mr. 9 year old grandson helped make the polyclay eggs.
Inspiration is back!


Some Self Indulgence

I'm feeling like a bus today. 
You wait and wait for a bus that never comes then two arrive together!

Just thought I'd share what I've been up to,
indulging the passion while unable to make miniatures myself.

The ducks reminded me of my grandparents home and made me smile.
Being unhandy with miniature plants I couldn't resist these gorgeous succulents.  The photos don't do justice to these polyclay creations, they are absolutely wonderful!

I adore this little Froggy flower frog in this lovely bowl!
Once again the photo doesn't show the perfection of the handwork.
The bunny and african violet were surprise gifts that made my day :)

Here they are all together with a spike I made 
inspired by Mercedes RL size spike.
The spike is my first play with miniature making in quite a while.
All of these goodies reside in my conservatory which is getting nicely filled.
