Pete's Been Naughty!

Occasionally, the younger pixies get into a bit more trouble than usual. They might forget to polish the beetles like they were told, or flit too fast through the dandelions and spoil the newly painted ladybirds. They might have even tied one too many knots in the hair of a sleeping child, and that calls for a time out! That is when they get sent off to spend a minute or two in the Pixie Pause Room, where they are supposed to think about what they did (or didn't do) but most likely it is a place to complain about being cooped up unnecessarily for a frightfully long time. 

I simply adore this wee greenhouse and stand. from Alpha Stamps. It is around 7.75" tall and 3" wide, which makes it a perfect fit for 1:12 scale dollhouse items like flowers and such. The kit is so easy to assemble, even a naughty pixie could do it. My greenhouse received a coating of gesso, then a layer of crackle medium, then a wash of antiquing fluid, and that's it! The flowers were arranged in various pots, I added a little sign, and just like magic, I had a finished project. Now to let out Pete and his cohort and hope I don't wake with a tangle of knots!
