Hosta la Vista, Baby
I thought it would be nice to make a hosta border around the conservatory of the Victorian house. I bought leaf sheets from Pepperwood Miniatures and started cutting... cutting... cutting. And then I started painting and gluing — all 360 leaves. I was painting the back sides of the leaves in my comfy bed while my hubby was watching TV next to me. Suddenly, he fluffed up the bed covers, and all of my leaves went spiraling into the abyss of green carpet! I've been picking up leaves in the carpet for a couple of weeks. It doesn't look as though I'm back up to 360 leaves yet. Good thing I don't vacuum very often. Here is my progress (minus the occasional carpet finds).
