My little Garden in an Old Rusty Suitcase

A charming young lady from Singapore sent me this beautiful, precious gift crafted by her own talented hands.
Thank you Sans. http://sansdollhousediaries.blogspot.co.il

Before it arrived, not knowing it's exact proportions, I planned to use it in a scene, next to a little outhouse I made several years ago.  In the meantime I received some lovely garden items from Sandra
as well as some I already had at hand, so I changed my mind. I'd rather do a potting shed.  The only photos I can show now are of the miniatures which will be used for this project.  I'll build the shed (Similar structure as the outhouse only wider with room for shelves and pots.  I managed to collect a large number of wheel thrown clay pots, some you can see in the photos.
About the little outhouse.  It is kept on display in our spare guests' bathroom where it brings a smile to anyone who uses this room for the first time. The contrast is too funny.  We once lived in Bogota, Colombia. Do you know what they call the guests' bathroom there? Emergency Bathroom! (Bano de emergencia).

It's getting too hot here and I scarcely have time to craft.  Too many activities besides miniatures, as well as a senior citizen husband who wants to go out, sit with friends and enjoy life.  I wish I could get him to help me with the miniatures, he supports me, but has has no interest in it.

 Isn't this garden gorgeous?  I am so proud to have it!  You can see how much work was necessary to produce such reality.

The colomn needs a paintover and will look good with the clay birdhouse on top.


This is the outhouse.  It goes back to the "Emergency Bathroom".  I love the cheap plastic cat.  I wish I could felt it.  Worth a try.


Here you can see some of the clay pots I mentioned.  I bought many, because they are very difficult to find when you need them.

When will I ever finish all the pending projects?  On the other hand, where is the rush.

It's time to bid you goodnight .  Blessings to all of you and a big warm hug

  4. I truly think it's always good to have plans - and in my opinion a project in progress is better than a finished one... Sans! suitcase gardens are always extraordinary special and I love the one she made for you. Lovely plans for the emergency room - in a way this makes sense, I think...

    Greetings
