As some of you know from my jumbled emails, I haven't been very well this week, so I apologise for the slow start to Gertie's posts, I just haven't felt well enough to do anything! But, I have had a couple of parcels through the post, so I thought you might like to see them.
This is everything in one go, there job done, back to the sofa now to feel poorly again!! Ok ok, sorry, I will show you properly! I'm going abit stir crazy being stuck in the house for the last week!
My first buy was this great little wooden shelf and loads of potion bottles from Midnight at www.etsy.com/shop/MidnightsDreams I love the way Midnight has made the bottle tops, they will be great in Gertie's potion cabinet.
Next, I bought some little black kettles from Ebay, they will be great for sitting on Gertie's mantelpiece!
Then there were some lovely dishes, two owls and some fruit from... sorry I can't remember who, but they are on Ebay! But my best bits are the wood turnings :0) I bought these at a local craft fair a couple of weeks ago. The maker was a lovely old gent who was practically giving these beauties away, the little wooden plates were only 30p each! He had a little tupperware pot on his table, full of bits he had made out of his off-cuts, perfect minis! I think the green crockery and the wood turnings go together very well to make up Gertie's potions and dinner plates! And finally, a question!! I bought the lovely dressed settle from a lady on Ebay who had decided not to continue with the hobby and was selling off her bits and pieces. She told me she had bought the settle from a Dolls House Fair. It is beautifully made and has the initials CS on the back, does anybody happen to know who the maker is? I would love to know :0)
Well, that's me for today, I really am going back to my settee now :0(
