(Since I first created this page I have TONS more items waiting for a home. lol)
PLANTS AND STATUARY IN NEED OF SETTINGS
I have always liked making plants and doing gardening scenes. I have done potting benches and landscaped houses, etc., and still keep making and collecting more individual items. Until I figure out what scenes to put these things in, I've been taking them from drawers so that I can enjoy them, and others hopefully will, too.
THE BLACK DISPLAY BOX
This mirrored case sits atop my husband's armoire in our bedroom. It is a way station for numerous pieces waiting to be put into a scene.
This little orchid was a swap gift and needs to be potted into the appropriate container.
This stone pot with horsetails and emerging iris was a swap gift. The topiary at the rear was a gift from my daughter.
I found the wall fountain at Big Lots once. The two pots of flowers were swap tems. The swan was a show gift at a Southwest Mini Roundup in Roswell, NM.
The bonsai was a gift from my friend Sandi many years ago. The funny looking red plant was my first geranium - punched petals glued to a green bead. You can see a bead visible where petals have fallen off! Kind of tacky, but I am such a sentimentalist I keep it because it was the first one.
This piece of statuary was part of a wind chime.
This lily was a swap gift, too.
The tulips are made from some dried plant material that I found in the desert and painted.
The angel was one of some neat pieces that were offered at Michaels one summer.
Several topiaries; most were gifts. The coleus were some I made in my first plant-making attempts.
This delightful stone fountain was a gift at Roswell. I added the climbing rose greenery at the base.
This succulent is made of mini plant leaves from an artificial stem. It's in a rough stone pot from Mexico.
