Terrariums and Trellises

Sunday was my Christmas celebration with my best friends, and this is what I made for them:
The one with the kids is for my friend Kelly, who runs a day-care. She takes the kids for hikes and down to the river all the time, so I tried to theme hers along that vein.
Jennifer's husband is a surveyor, so when I saw the mini surveyor dudes,
I knew what I had to do!

I love the kite-flying girl:

(LOVE the Venus fly traps.)

Then, I had BF make me some peony supports for Jennifer, because she has a huge hedge of them. We had seen these supports at Campo de Fiori over in Massachusetts last year, but they were pretty pricey. Luck for me, BF can bend metal!
...and he can weld it too! I had him build these two trellieses/obelisks for Kelly's garden:
Those iron arrows are drapery finials! Cool, right?!
I had to take a picture of this pot that Jennifer's mother gave her. It's a beauty!

Thanks for stopping by and commenting, Diane, especially after seeing them already on FB! :) Jennifer's mother bought that pot down south somewhere--I don't think it was as far as Georgia, though--probably the Carolinas. I love it. It makes me wish spring were closer, but alas, I awoke to snow flurries this morning.

Lovely! Where did you get the figures for the terrariums?

Oh my golly! I love those terrariums!
Yes, please share your tiny people source.

I got the tiny people at a local hobby shop--it took me forEVER to find a hobby shop around here. I went to two that I found on the internet that were closed/out of business, and then I found one 40 minutes from my house. I guess I should have called first, eh? Live and learn!
