- I've been into dollhouse miniatures since the early 1990's now and when I realized how much I've learned during that time, I thought I'd make a blog to share my knowledge with others. I'm mostly auto-deduct, but always found help on the Internet and in specific books. The mini-world starts and ends with your own imagination, so let there be no limit. And never say : I CAN'T .... because you can, you just need to try and have the necessary know-how. And that's the main reason why I started this blog, because I wanna share what I know with newbies in the miniature world or anybody else who might be interested in sharing what I've learned so far. So, hopefully, I'll be able to provide some useful hints, tips and tricks for those of you out there just starting with this wonderful hobby

FLOWERS & PLANTS : Geraniums, Roses and more
We had 4 days of real shitty weather here ..... what else could a hobby miniaturist ask for 😄
I have worked a lot on my current project, the garden cottage, over the past few days. I wanted to share a few pics with you all, but it's late and I'm about to go to bed, so please forgive me if my comments are a bit short ... I'm tired and I gotta get up at 6:00 😖😖 but I will add more detailed comments tomorrow
Here's my first try at making geraniums, thanks to a tutorial by Kris Compas which she kindly shared on her blog (www.1inchminisbykris.blogspot.com) ... she is sooooo very talented and has a lot of tutorials on her blog, please check it out, it's more than worth the detour
For a first try, I think I did OK 😊😊
I think the easiest way to make roses is to punch out simple circles and use a paper that is not too stiff, like tissue paper f.ex.
Climbing roses on a trellis
I made the trellis and the roses myself, used a little aquarium greenery
and flower soft to add the leaves
hm, just realize I don't know the name of this one
Of course you can also buy loose flowers and make your own arrangements
Just add some greenery and a few flowers you purchased
this one's from a kit ..... not yet finished in this picture though, need to give it a coat of darker green
Flowers purchases in a dollhouse shop, neatly arranged in a vase
Silk flowers and aquarium greenery
A fern I made with a punch
Dried flowers, greenery, colored stamens
A good thing to gather some more ideas is to look inside special garden magazines or just go to your local florist and take a good look aroud the shop
There's no limit here to make your own creations
