Secret Santa from Lorraine :)

Post by thriftycrafter on Mon 26 Dec 2011 - 14:40

How gorgeous is this.....











It has been so well thought out, my name in it and lots of sewing things, which I enjoy, the sides (and base) are decorated with stamping, there are some walls in a turquoisy green, the decorated domino has a face on (Is it a green man Lorraine?). A lot of the embellishments are metal and some are die cut, the back wall has been hand decorated with stamps I think. The vintage lace is real. The more you look the more you discover on this amazing piece of work. The photo's just can't do it justice.
Thank you so much Lorraine, it is beautiful. Worship
I also have 2 Tim Holtz embossing pouches, Thornton's chocs (had), and a travel toiletries kit, which is a great size for taking camping or to Sherwood when we go with school.

Not sure why it's gone sideways, replaced it twice now, but you get the idea.

It's in it's third position now, on top of the piano, I keep moving it to a 'better' place. I might bring it in here later (dining room) so it's by the pc and I see it more often.

4 days Emma. Allowing drying time for the paints, inks and sealant of course. And, I enjoyed every minute of it. Mr Green

Karelyn, if you're really having trouble finding a place for it, then it's obviously not for you so just send it back. I won't be offended, promise. Crying Laughin

Peeing Laughing Yes of course, it's already in the post, Peeing Laughing
It's just a case of no longer spending so much time in the sitting room so I will see it more often in the dining room now the TV season is over, and the ironing pile is gone.
I might be able to hire it out.
I'll certainly bring it to the retreat so everyone can see it.
