Two posts in one day! Well as I said earlier it's been snowy all day and we aren't really supposed to go out on the roads, so what better to do that minis. I have been working on the garden most of the day and after the shrub I made a daylilly and did some other small things. The flower was from an article in Dollhouse Miniatures, issues 10 and 11 by a woman named Jo Bevilacqua about how to make a summer oasis called "Leni's Garden Wall". This daylilly is made with 28 gauge copper wire and paper petals. You take a length of it and twist 3-4 loops of it to create the stalks, add the petals, paint the wire with acrylic paint and fabric glue, and then put on the leaves. I was unable to located the smaller wire she suggested for the stamen, so instead I didn't put those in, but I followed most of the other directions and I think it turned okay.
In the picture of the side yard you can see a fish in the pond. My son made that and right now it's lying on its side but will be swimming once I get the resin to fill the pond. I tried to make another one, but was unable to, so maybe the fish will be the only one. Maybe I will get him to make another one.
