Happy International Cat Day

As someone who wears her “Crazy Cat Lady” title as a badge of honor (does four cats qualify you for that title?), I’ve also been collecting miniature cats and kittens over the past couple of years. When I saw that International Cat Day was coming up, I knew it was the perfect opportunity to showcase my beautiful felines by JMDS Miniatures (Juan Manuel Diaz Solis) AND make some fun little kitty accessories!

The scene wouldn’t be complete without the cat scratcher and toy balls by A. Smith Arts, the cat litter box and scoop by Shepherd Miniatures, and the Chewy printable boxes by Mojo World!

Happy Easter

Happy Easter, my friends! I can’t believe how quickly April has arrived, and with it, all the best parts of spring! I’ll admit, the holiday snuck up on me this year, and I didn’t have time to make nearly as much as I wanted to for Easter, but I thought I’d share some of my little goodies here with you. After all, there’s always next year!

Happy Easter from The Petite Provisions Co.

I’ve been wanting little chicks for the longest time, so this past week I decided to just give it a go and make some myself! Overall, I’m very happy with these little cuties for my first attempt. I learned quite a bit in the process and may give them another shot in the future. I also made little bird nests from coconut fiber and moss, and then I added polymer clay robin’s eggs. The lovely little bunny is by Juan Manuel Diaz Solis.

I actually made this leaping bunny topiary last year, but for some reason I never really did anything with it! The bunny is a plastic figure that I painted green before covering it in model railroad foliage. I made the ivy by cutting out the leaves on my Cricut Maker, then coloring them with alcohol ink markers and painting the edges with white acrylic paint.

The potted bunny topiary was also a leftover from last year, made the same way as described above. I think the topiaries are so cute!

Now, back to what I made this year! I’ve actually been wanting a set of “cabbageware” for a while now, so voilà! I made each plate from white polymer clay that I veined with a silicone mold. Then I painted them with acrylic paint. Finally, the critical step for making them look like ceramic was a coating of UV resin! I liked them so much that I made chargers to go with them from orange jute twine glued onto orange cardstock. The result is very garden-y, isn’t it?

I also made the speckled eggs, which are displayed in a depression ware bowl from Melvin’s Miniatures. The white lilies I made from a laser cut sheet from Mary Kinloch. The clear depression ware jar (also from Melvin’s Miniatures) is filled with polymer clay jelly beans I made, and the glassware is all Chrysnbon.

And of course, Easter just wouldn’t be complete without a basket, so I made a new one this year with glitter eggs, assorted candies, chocolate bunnies and a tulip “carrot” bouquet!

I hope you’re all enjoying your Easter! ‘Til next time!

Vertical Herb Garden on Repurposed Shutters

Spring is in full swing in Florida, so I’ve been pinning all sorts of garden inspiration on Pinterest lately. I’ve been wanting to create a miniature herb garden, and when I saw people repurposing vintage window shutters into vertical gardens, I knew it was the perfect way to display herbs!

Dollhouse miniature vertical herb garden on repurposed shutters by miniature artisan Erika Pitera of The Petite Provisions Co.

I actually had these shutters in my stash of odds and ends, and I had already painted them in a shabby chic style, so all I had left to do was make the potted herbs. The parsley, sage, mint, oregano and basil were all laser cut sheets from SDK Miniatures that I colored with alcohol ink markers. I made the rosemary and lavender from painted princess pine (and Flower Soft for the lavender). For the chives, I painted a preserved flower I had (I have no idea what it’s called, though), and I made the little purple flowers from crepe paper.

For this scene, I included some other little gardening goodies, including the gardening tote kit from Dragonfly International, and the ADORABLE calico kitty by Juan Manuel Diaz Solis. I absolutely love how it turned out!
