Climbing Roses

It's been slow going with the roses but I'm getting there.

All of them stuck onto floral wire and a pair of leaves added, my fingers and thumbs are not designed to do minis! Wire was added to the trellis, which I had previously painted.

Then came the job of  adding the roses but as I neared the top it became obvious I hadn't made enough. DOH!!

I intend to finish it off tonight.

It never ceases to amaze me how many mean spirited and petty people there are in this world.A couple of weeks ago, after I had posted about getting to grips with Fimo and showing you the pizza, I received an anonymous E-mail saying that my Blog was all lies and I was just showing photos of things I had bought (hence the photos of the trellis in various stages) I tried to reply but my E-mail bounced back at me so I put it to the back of my mind and thought no more about it. That is until this week when it emerged on Facebook that a very talented miniaturist, Caroline from Hummingbird miniatures, had had her Etsy shop suspended after somebody told Etsy that she didn't make her own stock ( I'm not comparing myself to her, she's leagues above me). She then had to go through hoops to prove that it was all her own work. Her shop has been re-instated but she has lost insertion fees, which Etsy will not refund, and possibly sales and all because of a mean spirited person. I despair of people sometimes.

See you later....


  1. You're doing very well with your roses, it must be hard to guess how many will be needed but it looks lovely at the moment.

    I bet you were tempted to remove your email address from your blog now - that can't have been a nice "e" to open at all.

  2. Sounds like you and Caroline have been hit by a troll, nasty!

    Oh boy those roses look like a lot of work! I'm sure I wouldn't have the patience, let alone the skill. You'll certainly get a lot of satisfaction when you are able to sit back and admire the trellis and the roses knowing it was all your own work :)

  3. Chelle, when people are so nasty they must be miserable, jealous, inadequate people themselves. You know that you have done things yourself, and when you know that, it is as Norma says, so very satisfying. You are doing a great job of the roses - it will be spectacular.

  4. Ahhh! What a sweet minis blog you have! Your work is beautiful. I'm so glad I found your blog today! :-) Jennifer
