The cottage only has the one room downstairs. You would think that it can be filled easily, but I keep finding more space, more stuff in my containers and I keep having all those ideas in my head. So, I've been working hard again. ;-)
Let's see, what are the latest additions? I have taken a lot of pictures tonight. I am tired and the light isn't the best, so I'll just post all the piccies I have. Easier than sitting here and trying to make a choice. You be the judge of which you like most. :-)
Two canisters made to look like they are made of enamel and two old leatherbound books.
A series of pewter items that I've been painting to look like china. The pewter isn't Warwick, so not the best quality, but once they're in the cabinet you won't see much of it anyway.
Long ago I have tried my hand at wood turning and this stand was the result, but I never found a use for it. Well, the owl did! He's been sitting in my containers for just as long I think and was happy to be let out....
He was sitting on a stack of books, but it was all pottery stuff, so didn't look good. A router got rid of the books and I've placed him on a stack of real books. He looks much happier now.
This picture isn't very sharp, but I am not going to take it again. ;-) It's near my bedtime!!! It's also a pewter item that has been sitting in my containers for jonks. It must be really hungry and in search of something to eat.
These mice have already found their diner.... Aren't they cute? I bought the set at the Convention in New Zealand and knew just where they were going to go: right next to the mouse hole in the wall! The table is just a place holder at the moment, to fill up the room and next to it an old carpetbag with some paper rolls and a skull. The things Eucalypta comes home with!!!
Same picture, but with different lighting. Too dark I think.
A picture of my favorite corner again. I have now added the little cookbook on the chair. Eucalypta is a bit like me. Has no imagination whatsoever when it comes to cooking. ;-)
I don't know if you can see it in the picture, but the mushrooms on the board are the same as the mushrooms in the cookbook! Actually, it worked the other way around. I first found the picture of the mushrooms (through the Graphics Fairy site) and then made the mushrooms to look like the ones in the picture.
Just a pretty picture with the sun shining in...
And another one through the front window.
And last but not least, two pictures of the magic wand. It's laying on the table, but I thought I'd take a separate picture, because it was a bit hard to see on the table. It's simply made of a toothpick, a fancy bead and a glitter stone. They were in the stash of beads and things Jody sent me.
It's later than I thought. I'm off to bed and will welcome my new followers tomorrow.
Bye for now
