These sweet siblings and best friends share a delicious cup of tea. The tiny pair measure just 2 1/4" tall and the teacup measures 1 3/4" tall. Everything (except the glass cloche) is made of paper. A removable banner hangs from the top of the cloche that reads "You, me and a cup of tea." With care, the dolls can be posed and re-positioned. The "tea" and two sugar cubes can be removed as well.
And here is where I create....
Not much has changed since last year except that I've taken over empty spaces on the walls and ceiling. I use chunky frames as shelves and a drawer organizer as a place to display a collection of little things. Paper dolls are taped or nailed to the wall and one hook holds more than one thing.
A garbage find magazine rack holds jars of buttons and sea shells and artwork from favorite artists and a vintage suitcase keeps sheets of crepe paper flat and safe.
My apron serves more often as a a pretty chair cover than as clothing protection...I never want to bother putting it on...besides, I wear junk clothes when I create anyway.
I removed a broken drawer from a vintage chest and use it to store crates of paper.
Wow!...now that I look at this picture, it looks like a lot of cluttered junk, but it's not. I have everything I need and use most at hand. And when I am stumped for ideas I can ponder over this "junk" for inspiration.
Thanks for taking the tour of my small workspace!
