So here it is... my altered book is in the background and Elizabeth will notice that the door knob has been removed temporarily so that I can actually work in it... good job it just screws in and out so not a problem.
I'm chuffed to bits with the way the niche turned out and really looking forward to getting on with some of the pages now!
This is the niche... it's supposed to be an Apothecary Shoppe Window.
and dear Elizabeth must be rubbing off on me because also on my desk is the pile of dictionary papers that were removed to make the niche!!
so as I had bought the rabbit and it is covered in book papers, I thought I would put the offcuts to good use and cover a pile of those polystyrene eggs with them for a table display for Easter. The bags of chocolate eggs at the back are going to the children of friends as soon as I have figured out a novel way to present them... and if those bags remain intact from now till Easter... and if I were a betting woman?... ;)
and at the front of the desk is what arrived in the post this morning from a friend!! Isn't that the most fabby ribbon? I am planning on making a book to celebrate our Queen's Jubilee year and this is definitely going to be in it.
