Been working in dreamy creams today :)
Last week I was asked by a lovely customer at my shop if I planned on making some more of my glass handled powder puffs (first shown on my blog in 2012).
|Something I haven't made for a while, so using this pretty glass decanter stopper, here's one that I completed today.|
It's finished in antique lace and marabou feather trim.
|My next project, taking a very plain (modern) cardboard box, I turned it into a pretty storage casket for the dressing table.|
I covered the bottom half of the box, inside and out (and the inside of the lid), with antique sheet music.
I layered up the top of the lid with a square of wool blanket, covered in a square of calico.
I then decorated the calico base with lengths of antique lace. A chiffon millinery flower completed the top.
|I used an antique ruffled braid to neatly finish the edges of the lid.|
Another coordinating accessory was this painted wooden tray, which I simply lined in a section of vintage wallpaper.
|Not suitable as a tea tray, but pretty on the dressing table to store make up or jewellery etc.|
|Finally today I started working on a new collection of small heart pincushions.|
All of my latest makes will be coming with me to the Vintage Bazaar, Frome next Saturday.
Have a lovely weekend,
