The Trees are all showing off their new leaves and soon they will be so green we won’t be able to see the birds inside. Here is a peak of some little pigeons!
And here is a peak from the neverending shops project – an apothecary cupboard for the ground floor shop and a wool display for the Haberdashery upstairs.
For the apothecary cupboard, I wanted to have rows of matching jars but buying miniature jars en masse is expensive and, in any case, finding any small enough to fit into this dresser seemed to be impossible. I eventually settled on making them from a string of beads with tiny buttons for lids and labels from The Graphics Fairy printed scaled at 13%. I’m quite pleased with how they turned out, though I will try to find something more interesting to go on the bottom shelf.
And for the Haberdashery, I used a rather battered cupboard that came as part of a lot. I never really expected to find a use for it but it fits into a corner by the fireplace and I think painting it improved it quite dramatically. I think the wools actually looked better in their old cupboard but that didn’t fit well in the room.
Outside, Spring is springing at last. It’s my very favourite time of year with everything so fresh and new. Poppy, of course, loves to be out in all weathers but I’m really enjoying these warm (not too hot) sunny days. Hopefully they will stay a while…
I wish you a lovely week :)
