Tulips for spring

 Last week my friends and I got together to make some tulips.  We used the instructions in the book by Pepperwood miniatures.  Tulips are surprisingly easy to make.

Lydia Pickett Quater Scale..Finally put together!

 This house in an adorable quarter scale house kit that I bought from Suzanne Larson-Tamburo. 
It was a very detailed laser cut kit.  It took me a while to put it together, working on it occasionally over the past two years. 
 Now that the house is together, I have the landscaping and interior furniture to finish. 
This is a labor of love for sure. 
A view from the side of the house.

Ready to move in!

Progress with Quarter Scale Houses

 At the Chicago International show, I took this workshop by Suzanne Larson Tamburo.
It is a quarter scale adorable house called "Fairy Tales".
 I still have lots of landscaping to do as well as the interior to furnish.  It is coming along nicely.
The class was a two day workshop.  In that time we built the house,  made the paper clay tile roof, did all of the landscaping shown so far including the stone walls.  We even made the tree and a little pond for the swans.  If you ever get a chance to take one of Suzanne's workshops, I highly recommend it.  She is a fantastic teacher...and she gave us morning and afternoon snacks!
