I've been busily helping Kettle work on her little kitchen on the bookshelf in our living room. It is coming together nicely and if Chaunczilla will stay out of it from now on, it will remain looking beautiful. I awoke this morning to mayhem in the living room this morning. Half of Kettle's living room was on our living room floor, her mushrooms were strewn all over her kitchen shelf and the shelves below, and her iron was in the middle of our dining room floor.
Poor little upset Kettle and I spent about 20 minutes finding various items of furniture, kitchen wares and so on and returning them to their rightful place in her home. Finally, she was able to settle in for some breakfast.
Kettle loves mushrooms and these tiny magical ones (no, not that kind!) she found out in the garden with friends yesterday. Sometimes she bakes little cakes that look just like them! They are ever so cute.
Some mushrooms on the cutting board, some in her bowl next to some dried rose to crush up and sprinkle on top her muffins in the morning with a wee bit of honey.
Some shelves made from slats from an old shutter and some miniature clothespins to act as support to help keep them up.
Kettle also has a love of quail eggs and some very obliging hens from down the street gave her these three to bring home to use for baking, omelets and so on. They'll probably last her six months, they're so big!
Oh yes! My last post I told you all about making an outfit for the Renaissance Festival and Kettle had been my inspiration. Well, here are some photos of the process and finished product.
I took a Renaissance styled dress and covered it in sunflowers and fall leaves and flowers front and back. I used fabric glue because my fingers were hurting far too much to attempt to sew each piece on. (All of these flowers came from the center pieces I made for my our wedding reception a few years back.)
I took some wings I found for 16 dollars at a Halloween store and attached the same types of flowers and leaves all over it and added some glitter.
I then took my tiny beaded pink purse and covered it in red and purple tulle and made a cluster of leaves, flowers and feathers and attached it to the front of it so I would have a bag to carry on Festival Day.
Then I made some fall hair adornments to match as well.
I took some black half-pants that I have had for a few years that have flouncy flowing leg cuffs and sewed fall leaves all around the cuff of each leg and this is what I got!
Lots and lots of tulle all around me. Layered fall colors of purple, red, oranges and greens with fall leaves and flowers sewn into it. Oh yes, and my shoulder dragon!
This was before I added the leaves to the leg cuffs. Purse is attached to the side of the dress so I didn't have to actually carry it around in my hands.
And at the Festival!
I'll have some fun photos to share with you from the Festival in a day or so. Hope you'll stop by!
