Een beetje licht in donkere dagen? / A little light in darker days?


Dáár dacht ik aan toen mijn blik op deze vaas met Physalis, ofwel “lampionplant” genaamd, viel. Maar, zou het ook mogelijk zijn die plant in miniatuur na te maken…… ?

That’s what I was thinking of when my eye caught this vase with Physalis. Here, in The Netherlands, we name this plant (literally translated) “Chinese lantern”. But would it be possible to make this plant in miniature……… ?


Na een grondige studie van deze plant besloot ik het toch eens te proberen……dit was dus één lampionnetje. Jemig, nog zó veel te gaan om een tak vol te krijgen. 
Pffffff, ik leek wel gek......ben ik óók, een beetje ;)!

After I had thoroughly studied this plant, I decided to give it a try……so, this was number one of the small lanterns. Oh dear, still so many lanterns to go before I would get one branch full. 
Phiew, I must have been mad........I am, but just a little ;)!



En na één dag uitzoeken van hoe ik het zou kunnen doen……..had ik een takje vol.

And after one day of figuring out how I possibly could do this job….I had one full branch.


Deze volle vaas was het resultaat na één week ‘ploeteren’ (als ik tijd had om er aan te werken).

This full vase was the result after one week of ‘slogging’ (if I got the time to work at it).


Tijdens het maken kwam ik op het idee om ook kleurverschillen aan te brengen, zoals ook in het echte boeket te zien waren. Misschien brengt de zonnige oranje kleur van de Physalis wel een beetje kleur in de donkere dagen hier, dat deed het voor mij wél :D!

While I was making the small lanterns, I got the idea of adding more nuances in color, as you also can see in the real bouquet. So, perhaps this sunny orange color of the Physalis will bring you a bit of warm sunshine, at least it did for me :D!

They look amazingly real in such a small scale! I love these little lanterns, I can never seem to grow them though ;( maybe time to recreate them in bitty :P

Dear Ilona, only you could succeed so marvelously in making mini Chinese Lantern plants!!! (That is what we call them too!) I think your version is stunning! I can imagine that it took all week to make all those branches! Yes, you are Mad.... in the best possible way!!!
I hope all your busy RL business goes well and lets you return to minis soon!

Hallo Ilona,
die Physalis ist einfach unglaublich schön geworden.
Obwohl ich kein Fan von orangefarbenen Blumen bin, auf diese
Art gefallen sie mir sehr. Da kann der Wahnsinn nicht groß genug sein :-).
Liebe Grüße Veilchen

Beautiful idea. I've never seen this plant.

The Old Maid zei

You are a flower magican Ilona! They are FANTASTIC!!! Is there anything you can't make in miniature??? :) :) I've been wondering if you could try to make another orchid like paphiopedillum kind? That's just an idea. ;)

I need to have a word with Ewa... she's using my text! *LOL* I love it when the little devil in your head is talking you into trying out something new - this always leads to breathtaking results. Your Chinese lantern plants (we call them Lampionblumen btw)turned out wonderful and so realistic. I hope it's only preparing for the fair that keeps you busy in RL - take care of yourself!

I know them as Chinese Lanterns too, afraid I have no idea what they call them in Norway. I had to look twice to see which vase had the real flowers! Beautiful work, you got the colouring so right too. Blessings, Pam in Norway xx
