A few months ago, I bought some lovely soaps and a HOME plaque for Woolembees from Looking Glass Miniatures (Photos to follow) and as is usual with us miniaturist people, we see something in everything that could be used as something LOL So, when I saw this lovely little thank you tag in my parcel, a little light bulb went off.....
and I made it into a pretty little table mat for the sideboard in my Maysage and Birch Staff room.
The sideboard is a whitewood piece, which I had stained with Jacobean Oak Woodstain. I was happy with the look and colour of the sideboard, but I really wanted a pale orange crocheted mat to sit on the top of the sideboard. I'd looked around and seen some, but none were just quite right! Then the lovely parcel arrived and I looked at the pretty tag, thinking the colour would be perfect and my little idea was formed. Trimming it down to size on the wall side, it fits perfectly and I think it looks great :)
Here the table is in place in the staff room. Still lots to do in here, but it's coming along nicely I think. I'm not in a rush with Maysage and Birch, as this little shop and staff room will have some of my favourite pieces that I haven't wanted to part with once I made them! But mainly, it is my 'display case' for my favourite artisans and friends treasures that I will collect over the years... hence a long project!
Can you name who already feature in here? :0)
Well, off for a hospital consultation now, back over the weekend with a update on the witches cottage :)
