Miniature Greenhouse

ETA: I am also joining "Sunday Favorites" with this post since the original was posted in January. Chari at Happy to Design is hosting the weekly event http://happytodesign.blogspot.com/, so be sure and visit Chari to see what she and the others have to share this week.

I am late!! I knew there was something I was going to do last night or early this morning. Join in "Show and Tell Friday" hosted by Cindy @ http://romantichome.blogspot.com/ Thanks Cindy for hosting again this week. I originally did a post on my Miniature greenhouse in January and tried to post the original post here, but it was showing all the comments made at that time. I need to go to "Blogging School" . :-) The pictures were put in photobucket before I learned how to make them bigger, so sorry they are a little on the small side.

Bought the terraium container on clearance at HL several years ago. It already had the green crackled paint on it when it was bought.

The potting bench was originally a mini drysink that I whitewashed, and the table and the door I made out of scrapes of balsa wood and whitewashed them. The handles on the door are earring backs. I made one of the plants from leaves off of a faux plant and the rest I bought here and there - where ever they were on sale.

I added the shingles on top.
Thanks for touring my miniature greenhouse. Be sure and visit Cindy to see what she and the other participants have to offer today.

Have a great weekend!

I love the little greenhouses, Glenda. I can't believe the attention to detail-do you display them in a prominent position in your home? They are quite beautiful....you are so clever!
Hope you have a lovely weekend.
Best wishes, Natasha.

Lovely little miniature. You have a gift for doing them.

By the way - - - have your little birdies (as seen in your header picture) ever taken a trip and reported back for your blog? Maybe they SHOULD!

Hi Glenda...

Just read your note about wondering how to repost a past post without all the previous comments. It's really not hard and I give "step-by-step" instructions on my Sunday Favorites how to's...thought I would give you the link so you could check it out...

http://happytodesign.blogspot.com/2009/04/sunday-favorites_19.html

Hope that helps, my friend!

Hehe...I was wondering if you had a special room or place for all your miniatures. Ohhh yes...I would want to keep them out for all to see too...and to enjoy!!!

Thanks again, my friend for joining in with the fun of Sunday Favorites...hope to see you again!

Have a marvelous Monday!
