True2Scale Forsythia with French Pitcher Kit

This True2Scale Forsythia Kit has been on my wish list for a very long time.

I love the French blue pitcher and I love forsythia. 

 As soon as the forsythia started blooming again this spring, I kept thinking I should buy it.
And since I was making pitchers, I thought I should buy it to see this pitcher design.  Good justification, right?  (Another funny thing is that I think I first didn't buy it several years ago because I thought it seemed complicated, but it's not (and probably my skill level/confidence has increased.)

It took me a few evenings, but it was very easy and kind of soothing to make.  I loved the way the paper became little flowers.

Unfortunately I did lose my pitcher's handle, so I had to make my own, and I made it a bit too big.  Also I realized that my paint came out too dark a green on the leaves.  

But overall I am really happy with my forsythia and the beautiful French pitcher. 

Through the windows of the Malibu kitchen (someone needs to clean up all the parsley on the floor that fell off the parsley plant when it got knocked down):

And another view:

Have a great weekend!

    1. Thank you! I'm very happy it turned out well!

  2. I'm glad you got a little treat for yourself! It does look lovely and I bet you discovered that your pitchers turned out just as wonderful!

    1. Thank you! Yes, I am really surprised at how well the pitchers turned out (and how easy they were).

  3. You've done a great job with both projects, they look lovely :0)

  4. So beautiful! Forsythias were blooming every spring in the garden of my mother-in-law.

    1. Thank you! Forsythias bloom in my neighbor's garden and on this path I take in Central Park so I think that's why I really like them.

  5. I love forsythia! It always makes me feel hopeful and optimistic in the spring after a long, dull, gray Canadian winter.
    Your miniature version is delightful and looks very pretty sitting on the white table in front of the window where they can be fully admired and appreciated!
