Miniature Trunks..



Thought I'd show you these Miniature Trunks I made a couple of years ago. I used to sell these at the Fairs. These two I really liked and kept. No two were ever the same. The little Yellow one contains a Christening Gown, Rattle, little Gold Teddy, a dinky duck and other bits and pieces for baby. The Green one is a Gentleman's Chest, containing his smoking jacket, hat and little leather slippers, with his glasses and a well worn book. If you click on the pictures, they will come up bigger, so that you can see the detail.
Harry wants me to make a Pirate's chest and a Wizard one. Another project for the new year. Want to get "Honeydukes" finished first. I also want to make a Witches Hat Shop..
I went shopping today at Carmarthen, who ever said there was a recession on? The roads in were packed with cars, so I just went to Morrison's did some food shopping and came home. No way was I sitting in traffic then trying to find a parking space. Thank goodness all my presents are done and wrapped...

I've just caught up with about two pages of posts! I'd no idea how long it's been since I last visited.
The Stork's nest is delightful, and I love those trunks of yours. Beautiful!

How beautiful!!
And I also really like your "Stork's nest" project, just to die for!
Couldn't come for a while, as I was pretty busy with school :)
