sweet stuff

The gals at The Cottage and I were asked to do two rooms here this weekend. We're pulling things together and it is really coming together. I don't want to give too much away but here are some things that I made...





Kitchen utensils framed in a shadowbox! I'm so happy with how they turned out.

This will also be there...



I found this yesterday and could hardly contain my excitement. If it doesn't sell, I might end up keeping it for myself. I love child-sized chairs!

Here's something that I made that I've been wanting to show you...



It's an old Singer sewing machine, painted and decorated. Isn't that a fun prop?

Other things to show you from around The Cottage...

Your shadowboxes are adorable!

And the Singer machine is totally unique...you did a great job!

The table and chair is really wonderful. It's so rare to find a set in good condition. Sometimes I see a chair, but rarely a table! Hans and I have about six child size chairs and my mother is bringing over three more next week. When neighborhood children come over, they get so excited that we have chairs just their size. Little chairs are always special.
