A few new things
I've made some new items. This paper pitcher is another one from Marlies tutorial, but I changed the size and spout shape.
Purchased a couple of paintings at the Tom Bishop show. They are watercolors by Serna Sheridan (she's a member of Northbrook Minis). The one on the left is the Connemara mountains in Ireland and the right is the Morton Arboretum here in Illinois.
Built a kitchen cabinet and matching pot-rack. Also built a little thingy around the upper part of the oven hood - I wasn't thrilled with how that copper sheeting met the ceiling.Made the Daffodils with Lolly's group.
Will add cabinet handles as soon as I find something shiny in gold or copper.
Cut down the hutch, added toothpics to hold plates, trim so plates wouldn't roll off. For pot-rack I used a pewter picture frame, cut down headpins for cage and surrounded with popsicle sticks.
