Bonnie Lavish hydrangea kit last night. (You were right, Janice, it was fun!) Of course I clearly picked one of the most fiddly flowers in creation with which to begin my adventures in 1:12 scale flower-making -- gluing tiny little flowers onto tiny little stems was making me a bit batty by the end of an hour, but it's very satisfying and I can recommend the kits. The instructions were a teeny bit sketchy (I'm a Virgo and I like things to be clear :) but it all worked out okay and, like Janice, I got six blooms, enough for two small plants.
They will eventually go in two planters I've ordered, but for now they're living in the kitchen. I don't know if people in the early sixteenth century picked flowers for pleasure rather than medicine or herbs, but I love flowers in my own home, and I like the detail they add to a scene.
You can buy the kits directly from Bonnie Lavish's web site, or from other retailers. I happened to buy this kit at a discount from eBay seller littleplaceminis.
