A Little Spring Is In the Air

I think I'm getting sick of winter.  I've been busy trying to add a little touch of spring to my dollhouse miniatures to cheer things up a bit.  I haven't really had a good go at making flowers, so I thought I'd give it a try.  I think this is an art that takes practice.  I am pleased with my flowers and know now what I would do differently when I get in the flower making mood again.  I think they look so pretty and just want to put them in my own kitchen.   These blue flowers are supposed to be hydrangeas...which happens to be one of my favorite flowers.  

These flowers are supposed to be daisies.  I like how they turned out.  I need to come up with something better for the middle part of them though.
Some more Hydrangeas, although I smashed them a bit with my fingers too much.  They seem kinda squished. 

Some roses.  Roses are always fun.  I have to play around with the paper I used for them though.  I like them thinner.

I'm actually not sure what these are supposed to be.  I was just playing around with a new punch and wanted to see what I could create.  I'm not a flower expert and wouldn't know what to call these. 

Some more hydrangeas. 

And lastly, I finally put upholstery on my shabby chair in the shabby dollhouse.  I love how muted it is.  I think it softens the yellow of the chair quite a bit.  I made the rug for my Valentine's scene, but thought it looked nice in this room.
