The landscaping has started.  As the process continues, my workbench becomes increasingly messy, as you can see!

I use model railroad lanscaping materials for my
landscapes because I know they will maintain their color and texture over time. The plastic box on the left holds fine ground foam in a mixture of medium to light greens, which I use for grass. (Adding a light color gives the effect of sun on the grass, so that it looks more real.) The flowers are little snips of bunka.

For the stones, I use real, tiny beach pebbles, which are readily available on lakeshores here in the midwest.  If you don't happen to have a lake nearby, you can use the tiny stones that pet shops sell for aquariums.

I hope to have these finished by this evening.


  1. They are looking wonderful...can't wait to see them finished!

  2. How neat! I will look forward to seeing it come together! I love the way you landscape these tiny jewels!


  3. What a wonderful blog!!! I am so glad I found you. :-)
