Making flowers helps getting well

Hello all,

I am recuperating and getting stonger daily.  There's nothing  I love better than making mini flowers.
I want to learn to make flower arrangements.  Here are some attempts.





And I went on to cakes. Those precious doilies  Manu sent me just begged to be used.



Here is what I used to make this cake tray.  A cut cheap plastic check game piece for the leg, the inside of a Coca Cola 1.5 lit. bottle cork with one of Manu's doilies glued on it and a vending machine tiny toy transparent ball for the cover.





More raffia bags and shoes. I really have  to choose other materials to work with. Raffia is so uneven.


This is my latest experiment with making potion bottles from scratch.  I found these lovely beads,  punched circles of cork sheet with a recular office punch, stuck two circles together to make the stoppers.  I rather
like the result.

I am happy to welcome two new followers

A big warm hug to my new and old followers and thank you from the bottom of my heart for your "get well"
wishes. It warmed my heart to know so many people cared.

Blessings

  2. Dear Drora, I'm sorry to hear you have been so unwell but pleased you are now recovering. Your pretty flowers are outstanding! I also like your beach set with the rafia. It looks rustic, you see many real size beach bags made like this. I think you should spend more time recovering, it is doing wonders for your miniatures! Get well soon! A big hug, Gill. x

    The flowers are very well made ​​and very yummy cakes. Glad you used the doilies. The set of slippers and bag is delicious and since I have the fortune of owning one, live is even better
    Hugs.

  10. Hello Drora,
    I think flower arrangement might be another hidden talent of yours. The arrangements are lovely. As for the raffia items, I think they look lovely...they remind me of wicker factories we have visited when we travel. Beautiful work, as always!
    Big hug,

  11. I am here again , this time with virtual chicken soup. We are sitting in your kitchen (please bring your laptop there) and me troubling you with making a virtual tea :). We now move to the room where you show me the minis, coughing a little, hmmm , no, you are still recovering, not recovered entirely, and I am going ...wow! those bags are cuuuuuuute! I asked you what you mean by the coke bottle thingy? and then tell you how you are such a wizz with little beads. You then show me some of the teapots you have made with beads and I tell you how much I just love your potion bottles :):). I leave now, my dear. It's a long way back from your home to mine, even though it is only virtual. kiss kiss bye bye > :)

  13. Your flowers are so beautiful, so well made. I just love miniflowers. Your cakes and cake dish and glass are also pretty. Great summer set.
    It is good, to hear that you are getting better, I hope you gain weight so you have something to stand against with.
    Hugs

  14. les arrangements floraux sont très beaux et les gâteaux ... appétissants ! Le raphia n'est pas facile à travailler à cette petite échelle, il serait plus aisé de réaliser vos jolis sacs et chaussures en coton ou en ficelle fine.
    Bonne journée ! rosethé-Minima

  25. Please don't stop making flowers and arranging them - they look so beautiful and if this makes you feel better...well, please go on and on with that! Good to hear you're regaining your energy. Your newest work is so lovely, the raffia sets look absolutely perfect for a day on the beach, I hope you're not going to change the material. And your cake stand is breathtaking... you're so inspirational. And I never would have tried on my own to punch cork with an office punch... what a brilliant idea! My best wishes for your further recovery
