Elephant Ears FLOWER KIT easy to make

I bought this plant a few years ago to copy for my collection  of flower kits.

It is a most attractive plant and comes in two sizes 12th and 24th scale.

it is easy to make and looks stunning in the dolls house and livens up any dark corner.

It also sits well in the conservatory where it will thrive in a slightly warmer atmosphere…..sadly my plant died as it was not happy in my dining room!!

New kits in stock.

RHS flower show Tatton park

We are fortunate to live 10 minutes walk from Tatton Park in Cheshire so it would be a shame not to visit to famous RHS flower show which takes place there in July.

I visited it at the weekend and as usual was astounded by the variety and beauty of the plants on display. It is a source of great inspiration and I always return home with my head full of ideas for flowers to make into flower kits and my camera loaded with images of plants from the show.

The BUTTERFLIES at the show this year were extremely LARGE however !!! See below!

How fantastic is that!

I recommend it as a great day out!

My best Xmas Present

My favourite Xmas present this year was a book called 'The Miniaturist' by Jessie Burton.

It has been in Waterstones shop window for weeks and Iwas lucky enough to get a copy.

Now you don't have to be a collector or maker of miniatures to enjoy this book.

it is a real page-turner and full of a very interesting mix of characters. It is set in seventeenth century Amsterdam and was inspired by a dolls house in the Rijksmuseum.

I would really recommend this book to everyone.

What was YOUR best xmas present this year?

All roses can now be made up as a standard rose, a bush rose or simply a vase of roses.

Yellow roses were not discovered until the 18th century, the earliest of them was called 'rosa sulfurea' 

and had a really bad smell...not what you would expect of a rose!

But with cultivation it has become the sweet smelling flower we all know today!
