I really had SO much fun creating the portable miniature primitive garden makeover for the Summer 2012 issue of A Primitive Place & Country Journal Magazine!
The rusty trash pile wheelbarrow stunk to high Heaven, I'm certain I saw a few dried Florida lizard skeletons amidst the debris before cleaning it out & painting...
|Rusted holes = great plant drainage!|
Once I came up with a plan, it was like child's play from there on out!
|Stone wall dollhouse stencil (from yard sale) + fleck stone spray = garden 'wall'|
|I added a decorative birdhouse from my collection, by placing it on a pie basket riser|
|Added miniatures I already had on hand ~ brick flooring = plastic roll from Christmas village supplies, Michael's Arts & Crafts|
|The birdhouse is an upside down miniature clay pot topped w/a small clay pot tray! Dollhouse roof shingles border the aquarium gravel, the mini shrooms & bird were from my junk drawer|
|The outhouse is a $1.00 lean-to birdhouse ornament, I added dollhouse shingles & scrap balsa wood faux door. Twigs hold up the clothesline w/string holding tiny antique quilt scraps|
|Battery operated LED tealites in the windows|
