Box Rose Wreath

You might remember the two rose boxes I've made recently. They were shown here. The last one of the set of three, the biggest one has been left for a while. I have it finished just today.
Because it is rather large box (30x10x9 cm) I didn't want it rosy pink and chose slightly different design of rose wreath in cooler greenish colour with a tint of grey. Pict 518Pict 519 Pict 521Pict 525

Cath's Roses and Rosina' s Cats

I make a lot of small items all the time but rarely show them. Maybe it's not the right way to do things. So here I show two sets of such small everyday objects.
You see this is the ever popular design of Cath Kidston. This set is for sale in My Shop

This magazine folder is decorated with lovely paper with prints of victorian labels on it. I have it aged a bit with patina and small cracks. The inside is painted in deep colour which adds vintage feel.

Colour of season - Yellow

I am not a great fan of yellow colour in the garden but in this time of year it is very welcomed! Yellow daffs and tulips create the feeling of sunshine and warmth!

Marsh marigold, primroses and of course this shy beauty - the dog's-tooth violet!

With a touch of delicate pink and blue - my garden now is a very cheerful picture indeed!

Watering Can "Fox Hunting"

This is one of my most favorite decoupage papers, I like a theme and I like the style of painting. I have already made a watering can with hunting scenes once but this one is very different despite the similar theme.

Once I was asked about my painting. I can't paint, but sometimes I could manage to mix colours and disguise the boundaries of the decoupage paper - here is how the watering can looked like at the very beginning!

Tiny Seeds and Huge Camelia

It seems I didn't show this small box which I decorated as a seed box. You see it's made im my favorite "dirty vintage" style! If you drop it on soil in the garden or handle with dirty hands it will do it no harm at all!..

And talking about seeds... Look at this enormous camelia I've seen recently visiting Lyme Park
It grows in an orangery and what you see is a single(!) tree!
