I resisted the temptation to make them all vintage, although I think the 'La France' one there is my favourite!
I just used scrapbooking paper, because I have enough of it to last more than one person's lifetime! I would encourage you all to have a go at making these (I've made 26 in the last two days!!) Marlies has very detailed instructions and they are surprisingly easy and they look so real! I made them in a range of sizes from 3cm to 1.7cm, most of them are about 2cm tall.
See those teeny, tiny egg cups there on the table, they were a gift from Sylvia last week.
Thank you Sylvia!
On the home front - we have moved out of our house for a couple of weeks because finally, after 8 years, our renovations are finished! Hubby and his dad have been working very hard to get everything ready so we could get plasterers and painters in during the school holidays. My brother and his family have gone away so we have their (beautiful, new, warm) house to live in. I can hardly believe our house will be finished in a couple of weeks!! Although I'm not looking forward to cleaning up all the dust from the sanding.
You may not hear much from me while I'm away from home...I have a party to plan...more about that soon!
