Just playing

I made some clay pots and added various plant materials and then arranged the furniture into "rooms." The fabric under the bedroom set came from the swap box. I was planning to make toss pillows for the living room but I think it makes a great rug...hmm. The fern leaves were cut from a real life plastic plant. I also added the top trim pieces to the bed today. It looks more finished now, I think.
The living room will have the large floor plant potted in a terra cotta bead, a fern on a plant stand (made like the previous fern) and a smaller plant in a clay bowl (made with reindeer moss.) I will add some throw pillows to the couches when I actually decorate the house. The walls will probably be a pale olive in the living room.
The dining room has a vase of flowers - a really cool stained glass looking bead - and a gold trimmed terra cotta teapot. I made the teapot from polymer clay as well as all the pots except for the bead I used for the floor plant.

It's fun just to arrange and rearrange - it helps me to get ideas for the finished rooms.

"real life plastic plant"

my oldest daughter is experimenting with real-life plants in mini gardens. she amazes me with her patience, and some things have actually WORKED.
maybe she will let me blog about it sometime.
