Orchids in Barbados 2, Orchid Bridesmaids

Thank you so much everyone for your kind comments on my last blog. I have so many more photos of orchids I wanted to share. This photo above reminds me of a June wedding party with the bridesmaids and wedding guests talking! Orchids really would make great miniature  fairies and flower children, they have such character. The colours are so amazing. I hope you enjoy!  Jean♥

Orchids in Barbados


It is Father's Day today in Canada, above you can see a photo of my wonderful husband John. I couldn't have asked for a more perfect partner and father for our two sons. These photos were taken on our cruise last year in Barbados. We visited Orchid World which has over 2,000 orchids and I think I took a photo of each variety. I thought you might enjoy having a look at a few of them, I tried to capture them with the light shining through the petals, it really makes glow. I've been thinking they would be wonderful photos for inspiration for watercolours. I love the little faces in the fourth photo. The third photo shows how some of the orchids were just attached to a wire fencing to get the moisture from just the air, found that interesting. It was very humid.

AIM, Artisan in Miniature Magazine for June/July 2010 is out now!



The special June/July issue of AIM magazine http://www.artisansinminiature.com/  is out now, just click on the link to take you your free IMag for some terrific reading, inspiration and projects. I'm so thrilled to be a part of this wonderful group and am proud to have two articles published in this issue. One article has a pattern for a newborn coat about "Clothes Pin Dolls' page 12 and the other is about "Tea Parties" page 62, with an inspiration board with young girls having tea parties for ideas for dressing dolls and display.
I always love all of the terrific food ideas and displays, there is a summer fete display that is presented so wonderfully, articles about miniaturist, terrific regular features and much more.

Here are two of the inspiration boards that accompany my article on "Clothes Pin Dolls" with directions about making the white coat. Two of the clothes pin dolls are dressed in my newborn and toddler Marigold Garden kit.
