Saturday afternoon....





Not a very exciting afternoon for some.....but I have enjoyed myself! I spent a wet & some what cold Saturday afternoon with a glass of wine and one of Pascale Garnier's tulip kits.
Once again I am very pleased with the result....Pascale's kits never disappoint me!!

I learned to appreciate so much a quiet Saturday afternoon ...
Maybe there were more!
My husband says that lately I am losing touch with reality, he does not know what I wish it were true! If I look around, I see only bad news: the world is a powder keg :-(
Therefore, I am sure that while you make up this delicate and white tulips, was in place the magic of miniatures: transporting us into a world where everything is a measure of our deepest desires :-)
Too bad that Pascale did not have a website: for me is a tragedy! I live in the middle of the Mediterranean, isolated from any exhibition of miniatures ...
Fortunately, there is Linda, which shall cheer me with his photos :-)
Mini lovely hugs, Flora

Lovely Linda, obviously just enough wine to enhance creativity but not enough to destroy co-ordination.

Great tulips! Linda, I suppose you could almost dream that you spent a Saturday afternoon in France with your glass of wine and Pascale's kit. Small treats can make your day, even if the weather isn't good.
