flower stall complete

I have finished the flower stall completely. i added a few small bags of potting soil and some cans of bug stuff, I also found some magazines and a book on flowers/gardens. So it is all done. I think it looks cute.

So now I am back to making swap minis. I signed up for two swaps. A sewing/quilting swap and a bakery supplies swap. At least I have until the middle of January to get them done by.

I have decided I am going to leave all the stalls so they all have a uniform look to them. I think the natural wood looks the best, The stalls already have such vibrant colours showcased on them, so a natural look looks best.

flower stall

Well I have the flower stall put together, I have not decided on weither I want to paint it or not, the other stalls are not, I want a uniform look. I may decide to stain them all once I have everything done. If you have any suggestions please feel free to leave some. I do read all of your comments.

Here is what I have so far, the little wooden box on the stand is full of seed packages.

So now that I am caught up on all of my swaps, and the new ones are not due until Februry I have decided to get back to work on my mini market place. So most of you know I have been making mini flowers, I made a bunch on the weekend and I am in the middle of making a potting bench to disply them on. Thanks to Joanne Swanson for the wonderful tutorial about how to build a potting bench.

these are the plants I completed on the weekend. I still want to make some fresh flower boquets tht you see in your local grocery store wrapped in cellophane and I need to make a trip to Michael's to get some more pots so I can make some more flowers

So far this is what I have done for the market place. I have the fruit and veggie stand up, still need to make some more fruits and veggies, and I have the farm fresh egg stand done, both brown eggs and white eggs are available.

Mini flowers

Lately I have been working on flowers and I have been up to my ears in working on swaps. So I have finished the swaps that needed to be done and aare ready to be mailed off. With all of that out of the way I thought I would mke some flowers for the Willow, but i wanted flowers that can go outside. The willow does not have flower boxes so the flowers have to sit out beside the stairs. Anyway in one of my swaps I participated in I receieved a large white flower urn painted with polka dots ( it was a polka dot theme) and I found a picture of a Fushia plant, I have never seen a plant this pretty. So I made one. I was really pleased on how it turned out.
