PlantFiles is getting a new look! Just in time for spring, we're rolling out a new look for the best online plants database. It will also work with your smart phones and mobile devices, so now you can take it with you on garden center visits or botanical garden tours. Questions or comments? Please post them here.
Steve and I just about finished the house. Still needs some rock trim on the base but it is basically finished. Won't be able to really set it out until spring, but that gives me plenty of time to try to make some fairies and accessories from clay? We shall see.
Porches and sides are old barnwood from the old deck at our cabin.
One side of roof is bark and the other is shingles.
Harry Lauder walking stick for the window and door trim and billowing smoke and corkscrew willow and a barberry painted blue for the birdnest.
We plan to make an area in our shade garden under the water maple right at the base of its huge trunk!
Thanks, it is amazing how my mind races with one idea after another once these projects come together. Steve is working on one now that is octagon and I am already thinking of how to finish the roof and add windows and such.
I have so much material right here with my corkscrew willow, harry lauder, tall grasses, flower gardens, rocks and pines. The ideas are endless!
Thanks you two! I did purchase the black powder rifle at Hobby Lobby.
I love the acorn light fixtures too and I actually dipped the tiny bud from my dogwoods in white paint and inserted in them to make the bulb.
I think my favorite is the teacups and teapot and tray made from acorns. I used the woodburner to make a design on the tray. I'll post a pic of the tea pot today later.
This is the tray with teacups and bowl, I used pine cone petals for the base of the bowl and drilled tiny holes in the acorns to add the harry lauder handles and same for the tray.

Tea set on the table and the last shot is the garden swing I made of clay and harry lauder with another tea tray.
