Hanging baskets

Hello dears,

Last week, a friend who is also a miniaturist, invited me to go shopping with her.  There is a big department
store with a small craft corner where we sometimes find items that can serve as raw material for miniatures.
I get bored working on one project and  put it aside for a while to do other things.
Finding these large bead caps made me think of hanging flower baskets and this is what I've been up to.


The silver color metal was covered with linen color acrylic paint.


I had some laser cut wooden corners in my stash. I cut two ends of the long wooden
stirrer and covered he fancy laser cut piece, drilled a hole and installed an eyelet in it. Now
it can be fixed to a wall and a flower basket can be hung from it.


Geranium filled baskets.


Now that Halloween is almost here and pumpkins are so popular, I'd like to share with you these amazing photos of pumpkin curving art. These are done by Ray Villafane, an incredible talented young artist.







Happy Halloween to you who celebrate this day.

A warm welcome to Jannet.  Jannet has a new blog, worth visiting.

Hugs and blessings to all my frieds.
