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!

Today, amidst all the bleak news around the world, I’m happy to share a bright spot with you all. I’ve had the honor of being interviewed for the April 2020 issue of DollsHouse & Miniature Scene magazine!

Sadie, the lovely author, chose to highlight some of my Easter and spring miniatures, along with my conservatory! I can’t begin to tell you how honored I am for the thoughtful, beautiful piece Sadie wrote about me. It’s really a special moment when you see yourself called an artist in print – I think all creatives suffer from moments of self-doubt and wondering if we’re good enough, so it’s an amazing feeling to see yourself through another’s eyes.
