Ambiguous Affair

I am shocked to announce that there have been some naughty going ons at Tallulah Belle’s nursery.

A short while ago I found a cute little shoot that was unfamiliar to me. I looked in all my reference books and couldn’t find a species like it.

It was only once she started growing that I realized why.

It seems, my friends, that we have been having some illicit cross pollination going on in the middle of the night. Tut tut.

Polly Poppy was always the partying type but never in my wildest dreams did I think she’d be run off with Maurice mushroom.

And here she is… the hybrid offspring of this dubious dalliance who looks like she has inherited her Mothers promiscuous tendencies.

Is your plant in print ?

This months American Miniaturist magazine has an article on moi.  How cool is this....I love how they've done it....looks like the plants are about to jump off the page and bite you...or in some cases lick you :-)

Thanks Bailey and the rest of your team, I am really impressed. I love the comment about NastYurtium Nanci needed to floss more lol

And thanks to Kat for sending me a copy. I can't buy one anywhere near me unfortunately and I subscribe to their other magazines.

If you click on the photos you should be able to get them large enough to read it.

So, is your plant here :-)

And as well as having a grungy fabric tutorial in Dollhouse Word, Kat from Kat The Hat Lady is also featured in American Miniaturist...way to go Kat !

Now I just need to go find a copy for my Nan who I mention in the article. It was my Nan and Grandad who first got me into miniatures when I was very small. 

Unfortunately, my Nan is not at all well and has been in a nursing home for a while. Pretty tough when I live on the other side of the world. A lot of the while she doesn't know who people are or why she is where she is but I am hoping that my Mom can read and show this to her she'll remember me and the things we used to make together :-(
