Marguerites d'Anvers

Questo è diventato un lavoro di gruppo.
A Paris Creation Linda ed io abbiamo acquistato dei kit di Pascale Garnier ripromettendoci di non lasciarli troppo a lungo nei cassetti.
In effetti il giorno stesso del mio ritorno  a casa avevo già montato i fiori che poi ho abbandonato senza foglie in attesa di trovare un contenitore che mi piacesse.

This has became a group work.
Linda and I bought some kits by Pascale Garnier at Paris Creation promising not to keep them too long inside a drawer.
Actually the very day when I came back I made the flowers putting them aside leaveless waiting for a container of my liking.
A Roma, precisamente a Piazza Navona dove si riuniscono le bancarelle dei presepari, ho trovato un delizioso secchio di latta che sembrava fatto apposta per le mie margherite.

In Roma, more precisely in Piazza Navona where  are gathered the stands of Nativity set sellers, I found a cute tin bucket which seemed born to host my daisies.
Così ho passato l'intero giorno della Befana a tagliare e modellare le foglie, 5 ordini di foglie !!
Mini, piccole, medie, grandi e maxi ! Un gran lavoro ma il risultato è davvero realistico, molto più di quanto non possiate vedere da queste foto.

Hence I spent the whole Epiphany day cutting and shaping leaves, 5 orders of leaves !!
Mini, small, medium, big and maxi !A big job but the result is truly realistic, much more than you can tell from these pics.
Adesso mi mancano 5 kit diversi .... a Linda ne mancano 20+..... dovrò comprarne altri per stare al passo;o)
Now I have  5 more kits to go through ..... Linda has 20+ ..... I shall have to buy more to keep up ;o)

I love your flowers and hope you will show us more of your kits. Your photos of Roma really are heavenly. I was there in the 70s, for a few days on my own on my way home. I loved it, saw the then pope, Paul VI. Will certainly return if I possibly can.

Rosanna, fancy you making these whilst at the same time, Cindy was making the gerberas. They are so alike, I am sure they are from the same family.

I love flowers and as far as I am concerned, they are a must in every home, even poor tribal ones :).

Angela ha detto...

Ma che brava che sei stata....forse anch'io dovrei provare con la tua tecnica....chissà che non riesca a produrre....
sono davvero bellissime queste margherite....poi tra l'altro sono i miei fiori preferiti....
questi kit li avevo visti a Parigi ma non li ho comprati visto che non mi sono mai cimentata con i fiori in miniatura...ma dopo le tue immagini mi hai incuriosito....
complimenti per il vaso che hai trovato a Roma....
un bacio

"Don't you think Daisies are the friendliest of flowers?", a quote from one of my favourite movies: You've got mail.
And they do make you smile!
Perfect container for it too, Rosanna, BUT they do look like a lot of work! But like all things, the more effort, the greater the result.

Patty ha detto...

They came out so perfect! I love how realistic they look!
