Flower Power!

I love flowers and plants, especially in the miniature scene!

There are miniaturist who are skilled in the art of making the most amazing flowers and plants and I rather would prefer to buy these!!! Though I'm not that good at making plants as a would like to be, I still have to make a great deal myself to save me some money;)

Because I have a roof terrace, balcony, three sides and probably a big garden to fill, I attempted to make a start;)

For the people who wonder how I turn on the lights without wiring....the last picture shows you the trick;) That is how I will do it in all the rooms...you just have to be clever in hiding the battery!

  3. Hi Sab! Your roof garden is coming along beautifully! I like what you've planted up in the washtub too. It is so bright and cheerful, flowers are so welcome at this time of year. Unbelievably it is April already?
    Very clever hiding the battery under the skirt of the bookcase! Problem solved!

    1. Hi Elizabeth, it is April but it looks like winter in Holland;) Because I didn't wire the house, and still wanted some light...I had to come up with something:))) This works for me! In the past I have made some plants etc. but not much...to fill every corner with flowers will cost me a lot of time, but I do like to make them:)

  4. I love your flowers and the pots!
    It's very clever to use a battery for the dollhouse lightning!!!

  5. Hihihi, leuk die batterij! Verstoppertje spelen, buut=gevonden :D!
    Je kunt geen plantjes en bloemen maken? Wat zijn die mooie gekleurde "dingetjes" op jouw foto's dan? Volgens mij zijn dat écht wel degelijk bloemen en plantjes en nog hele mooie ook!
    Groetjes, Ilona

    1. Haha, ja je moet wat....ben niet zo van elektriciteit dus moest ff iets anders verzinnen:) Ik vindt plantjes maken wel erg leuk hoor....voor ik ooit een plantje had gemaakt dacht ik: dat is niets voor mij! Ik heb wel al een paar plantjes gemaakt, maar als ik zie wat anderen er van maken zoals jij, zijn mijn margrietjes maar simpel;) Ik ga maar eens wat mooie kits kopen, om de boel te vullen.....hoe meer hoe beter!!!!

  8. Hi Sab! Your flowers are a success! They are so very pretty and colourful! I also love the various little containers you have. It's brilliant to have hidden the battery behind the skirt. One would never know!

  12. Deze plantjes zien er echt al geweldig uit Sab en ik vind het echt een werkje voor jou ;-) Dus op de beurs leuke pakketjes kopen en hup aan het werk, dan heb je zo je terrassen/balkon en tuinen vol! De batterij is natuurlijk een slimme vondst :-)

  14. Your flowers are amazing - had to double check they are not real! your pots are lovely too and love your table! Just showed my hubby your system of lighting. Is that just a normal 1:12 scale light? One of the projects I'm working on is impossible to light and that would be the answer.
