Gather 'Round - It's Story Time

Hiya dear friends! It's another scorcher outside so why don't we all just gather around (in this cool air conditioning) for a little story?

Make yourself comfortable. It's a little snug with all the fairies filling the small spaces, but I think we can manage! After all... it's bigger on the inside...

It's a 3 1/4" x 5" tin set up on a pedestal that was sanded, painted, distressed, painted and sanded some more until the colors were just right.

It's similar to another I made in February.  I had many leftover bits and pieces from the first that I just had to make another. :) This time I put it on a stand and used vintage tatting as trim.

Fussy cutting is a favorite technique, and there's a lot of it here! You can't see in the photos, but there are little flowers all over the inside corners. It's a nice little surprise if you peek in...

Thanks for visiting. Have a great day!
