A try at a little bedding

Standard

no bed for it and no house for a bed if it had one …

Project finished

Thanks to the kindness and patience of Georgina Steed at The Miniature Garden, I’ve managed to finish transforming her wonderful pot rose bush into a rambler/climber style.  This, with a little touching up here and there on the papier mache soil banks built for the plantings, was the last item to complete the eighteenth century scene; a late seventeenth century house falling into ruin and lived in by an eighteenth century tailor, quite possibly in Gloucester.

Rose embedded in the wall at bottom end to help support and pinned, glued and wax-held around the window too – used pieces of florists’ wire as staples here and there to help support the weight.  For the papier mache I like to use tissues as, when dry, they give a striated look, a bit like wood or rock.

as it were.

Totally out of order of play, was saving this entry to very last or near last, but health going a little pear-shaped at mo and don’t quite know when I’ll next be mini-ing much.  Prob not today, anyway.

Anyhoo, a tale told from the Mouse population’s point of view – with great respect to Beatrix Potter and the Tailor of Gloucester
