“I would rather be on my farm than be emperor of the world” – George Washington
The Crown Jewel Farm doesn’t have an emperor but it does have a squirrel! Kerri Pajutee has created magic once again and this tiny squirrel named Bob hopped onto Farmer Jewel’s truck to take a peek at the pumpkin patch. Bob is the favorite pet at the farm… expect to see a lot more of him in my photos, even at the kitchen door.
The Crown Jewel pumpkin patch is a combination of my own handmade leaves and a kit. I made several leaves using textured paper from Japan, the crinkled texture really added to the realism. I made my own pumpkins and plan to add more in the autumn. The other leaves, pumpkin blossoms and curly tendrils were part of the kit.
The red tractor is one of my recent discoveries at an antique shop! It’s roughly 1:12th scale and my imagination is in full bloom with ideas for various ways to incorporate it in my miniature scenes.
It’s so nice to find time to make a few things for myself this summer. Last month I finished a tomato plant kit using my own tomatoes. It’s planted in a wooden bucket for now but will eventually become a permanent part of the royal garden on the Crown Jewel Farm. Both kits, pumpkin and tomato were purchased from The Minaiture Garden via Etsy. I love Georgie’s kits!
The garden tools and wheelbarrow are Sir Thomas Thumb miniatures and I made all of the fruit and vegetables.
Farm-to-table food is the best on earth, even in miniature. Happy summer, mini friends!
