Show and Tell ~ 1:12 Scale Pink Hydrangeas

This weekend was terribly busy for me. Chinese New Year is just less than a week away, and I had to do some spring cleaning in my room. Cleaned out the corners, bought a storage box to store some stuff, threw out the old paper box, and also finally sat down to start making new curtains for my room. I bought some very nice pink shabby chic fabric in Spotlight last year, but never had the chance to sit down to sew it for my room. Finally, yesterday evening, I dug out my sewing machine and started working on it. These are very modest curtains, and nothing fancy at all, but a nice looking fabric makes a whole lot of difference!

Miniature wise, I have not been able to work a thing this weekend, due to all the cleaning and clearing. Over the week, I made a little pot of miniature pink hydrangeas which I'm really pleased. I love the colours, love the elegant look. It makes me so happy just looking at it...and I hope it makes you happy too.

Hi Pei Li,, I am glad you got to work on your curtains. New curtains, especially a pretty fabric can make all of the difference in the world.

I love the hydrangeas! I think these are my favorite. I love hydrangeas. They dont grow where I live, but they are sooo pretty.

Have a wonderful week and enjoy the Chinese New Year! (()) gail
