Miniatures are magic at times. Wednesday started out as an overcast gray kind of day here. All damp and muffled outside. I looked out the window and veered for the workroom instead.
Out of sorts with the weather -umm— so what should I work on????
I have 2 projects at the present that I have been bouncing between. One is the Orchid Hill House and the other is a florist shop. I am trying to get the florist shop down to exhibit it this fall and the deadline is approaching fast.
I have been doing fall flower arrangements of late (miniature of course). The wonderful autumn foliage colors this year have kept me inspired. I have had a ball doing them! Some for the project, some as gifts for friends and even an overflow into my Etsy shop (the same name as this blog) ———–
So I wondered what if I changed the colors of a little cart that I have used as an Easter arrangement and had a turkey pulling it instead of a bunny? I love the graphics from old postcards that had whimsical images of bunnies, turkeys, etc for the holidays. That is actually how the original Easter egg cart evolved that I have had filled on the Etsy site and offered as a kit on my website . ………………
I totally got absorbed in the transformation of that Easter cart into a turkey cart. It was cheery and sunny in the workroom despite the gloomy weather outside……
IT WAS MAGIC!!!!
So thinking about how much fun I had with this simple project and wanting to celebrate several things………………………………………
