At the moment, Daviot House doesn't have a kitchen - I'll be putting in an extension at the back or at the side, when the main house is finished. But that doesn't stop me collecting and making!
I painted the top of a McQueenie's sideboard a lovely smooth cream, and added some hooks for a tea towel. The little yellow crock is from One Pottery, the honey jar from LugartPetit and the doily on the milk jug is from Roslyn Treasures, who sadly stopped making last year. I added the glass beads and used fabric stiffener to make the doily into a jug cover - I have lots of these in my real life kitchen!
A little trip to Small Wonders Miniatures resulted in a Duncan White chicken finial teapot, a Danny Shotton pastry brush and a Veronique Cornish pumpkin jug.
To stick to my New Year resolution of trying to make instead of buy, using materials from my stash, I made a little blue salt box and a painted egg hutch, which considering my non-existant woodworking skills was a miracle as it even has a working door! Thank goodness the style is supposed to be what I would describe as 'rustic primitive'!
Speaking of woodwork, you'll be pleased to know that the sewing for the stumpwork mirror is finished! I now have to make a frame, and as you can imagine, I am dreading it... bad finishing can ruin a piece, and I have spent so long sewing, I would hate to have a problem now. More pictures to follow soon,
