when i first saw this tutorial over at one red robin i just knew i had to make one for myself. and now that i have a space to display it in i had no excuses not to make it. this will just be so pretty on the wall of Lilly cottage and friends and it will inspire me to make a few more bag charms or brooches to hang on it.
this started life as a very cheap pine picture frame with no glass. i painted it up ready to be transformed into a brooch display board. i popped a bit of lace under the frame to hide the staples. the lighting isn't that great but it really is the sweetest little thing and compliments my handmade pretties so well.
last Sunday was a wonderful start to our new venture with lots of pretties finding new homes and each of us heading home to create more items to fill in gaps in the shop. i had a day of relief teaching today which was absolutely wonderful but of course that has meant 1 day less of creating. the beauty of this cottage is that there are 3 of us contributing which means that if one person is having a slow week the other two are sure to be creating something so the shop will never look empty. i worked on my stitchery last night but am not sure how to display it... might need some help with that one. i will post about it as soon as i get a chance.
best be off and make some dinner before the children eat their own arms.
