A Tropical Oasis and Tiki Bar

A Tropical Oasis and Tiki Bar

With summer right around the corner, I’ve been dreaming of a tropical getaway! I envisioned a miniature tiki bar in Hawaii, surrounded by lush greenery and an oasis, and I got to work. I built the entire tiki bar from scratch, and since building furniture and structures isn’t normally my strong suit, I’m absolutely thrilled with the end result!

To complete the look, I wanted the tiki bar’s surroundings to be lush, green and tropical, so I landscaped a rock formation (complete with little waterfalls) with palm trees, bamboo and other green vegetation. For my first time landscaping in miniature, I’m very happy with how it turned out!

These adorable like tiki guys are ceramic beads I found at The Crafty Bead on Etsy!

I just love this type of “directional” beach sign, so I created it in bright, tropical colors with fun sayings. The pineapple on top is a button, but it worked perfectly to give the sign a finishing touch.

This tiny little hula girl and the toucan perched on the sign below are also ceramic beads. Aren’t they cute?

And here it is after dark! I love how the colored lights look at night!

Bean the Easter Bunny

Bean has been hopping with Easter on its way! Bean has a purple bow and cute little pink paw pads on his feet. He also comes with a miniature woven Easter basket filled with green tissue paper, hand-sculpted pink and purple polymer clay Easter eggs, and a hand-sculpted yellow polymer clay marshmallow Peep! Check him out on Etsy!

Rory the St. Patrick’s Day Mouse

Personally, I’m not one to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day. However, I couldn’t resist creating Rory, who’s all decked out for the holiday in a snazzy green vest and bow tie. He’s also got a soft pretzel (hand-sculpted from polymer clay) and of course… a frosty mug of beer (hand-poured resin in a plastic mug topped with polyfill). He’s available on Etsy now!

Romeo the Valentine’s Day Mouse

Valentine’s Day is right around the corner, and Romeo is ready for romance! He measures about 3-1/4″ tall and comes with a red bowtie, a rose bouquet and a bottle of bubbly! His bouquet includes three ribbon roses wrapped in cellophane and tied with a red and silver ribbon. His bottle of champagne is hand-sculpted from polymer clay. See him now on Etsy!
