It's not a Poinsettia....



It is funny where our fingers take us when we sit down to 'do' some miniatures! I was already to make-up a "Bonnie Lavish" Poinsettia kit, being Christmas and all.....when I started fiddling with an ivy kit and before I knew it I had this unruley unkept ivy on a hoop. It has been something I wanted to make for the 'petite maison' for quite some time.....although not really sure where it will be situtated.
Suppose I should now make the Poinsettia......or just leave it until next christmas.....?

Bonjour Linda! I think it was meant to be that you created this ivy piece - beautiful as always.
Hope you are still continuing to feel better, so glad to see you are back to enjoying your marvelous miniatures.
Wishing you a fabulous week!

It's fabulous Linda, the urn is just perfect for it.

If you're concerned about the Christmas angle how about hanging a few baubles off it? (joking!!) Doing what the heart desires rather than what the head dictates is the essence of creative success IMHO and there are enough timetables and deadlines in the 'real world', let's escape in the mini one and do what we please. Looking forward to seeing the poinsettia some time later, when the mood takes you:)

So funny Linda, So many of my mini projects start out one thing yet turn into something totally different. Wonderful Ivy. Really really lovely. Love seeing the wonderful kitchen in the back ground. I just love that kitchen so much. Hugs~ Kim

So nice. I can see it in front of a sunny lighted window. I love ivy loops in real and your mini as well. I'm glad you can find time for minis, it means that everything is on the mend.Hugs Rosanna

Your ivy is great. I love in real life ivy in this kind of form. I like the old look of your vase. You may still have time to make the other plant ..., anyway it's good to make what you like even if it isn't what you intended to make first.

Is that really 1:12 scale? It looks so real, in the setting on the kitchen counter, complete with under counter lighting! While your dream is to live in Paris, my dream is to live in your petite maison!

What I would call a happy accident! Love the urn - it's beautiful - did you fancy that up a little too, or was it like that?

Who wants a poinsettia when you can have something like that? And the plus, you can leave it your house all year :)

It looks lovely! I had to look twice at the pictures, at first I though it was full-size, not minis! Beautiful work :-)

Tallulah Belle said...

Lovely Linda...I love miniature Ivy even though I am not keen on making it...at least the variegated kind.

I have some of those urns...love the way you shabbied it up.

Sabiha Barkey said...

Since I'm into poinsettia's this year, I say go for it . . . then it will be done for next year and you won't have to pull everything out again! LOL!

Hello Linda, I am pleased that you have resumed work, it means you're better and I'm happy for you!
I have an ivy in my garden, which twists around the trunk of a tree ... Your thumbnail is very beautiful, I see well near a window full of light, throughout the year, not just at Christmas!
The vase is beautiful, you did a great job!
thanks for leaving a comment on my blog, I almost did not believe it ... you made me happy! It's a honor for me!!
I wish you a good day ...

You have very good taste and a great talent. It is a great honor you have chosen my ginger cookies to be part of your wonderful work.
