New Pottery and a Stepback Cupboard
Hi friends! I hope this post finds you all well and enjoying the cooler days....mornings and evenings are getting a little crisper and it is getting darker out at night earlier and earlier! Fall is here! (Well, almost)!
We are very busy getting everything ready and packed up for our craft faire for tomorrow. Bob has been working day and night to get as much pottery done as he can before tomorrow morning. I am so amazed at how his talent has grown! Now he has started to make salt and pepper shakers~! These are so darn cute, I just love them! I asked him awhile back if he thought he could come up with something and he sure did.....
Here is some other pottery that is still sitting on my table waiting to be wrapped up for tomorrow! There is just so many pieces that I am going to hate to part with! ;)
On a quick side note, I promised you all I would show you pictures of the beeswax pinecones that I made along with some acorns. This is all completely 100% wax, not a real pinecone dipped in wax. They got great and they smell yummy too! I also packaged up a whole bunch of these too for tomorrows faire. :)
Now, onto the stepback cupboard! I found this blue beauty at a favorite shop of mine just recently. I previously had a stand there that wasn't quite as tall as this, but it was wood colored and nearly blended into the wall. I wanted to paint it or give it color, but decided to go with this instead because I love stepbacks! Well, it is certainly prim, but I love it....but, I was told that it looks dirty and the person that said that, also couldn't believe I was keeping it there and in that color! :( What do you all think? Does it stick out too much?
It is quite bright in these pictures, but during the day it is hard to get a good "prim" picture...but it gives you an idea atleast. I really like it there, and I like the cupboard too.....I like a little bit of prim dirt! ;)
