La Patisserie

              I know it's been a while...but life seems to throw unhelpful situations at me these days!                                                               

Progress has been made on the patisserie.

I've built a bakery counter with a marble top.

Not exactly sure where it should go yet.

I made the display case next.
Then the cabinet for it to sit on

with drawers for supplies in the shop.

There was a weekend I was obsessed with making plates!
You can find the tutorial I watched here.

The plates are made from scrapbook paper.

I made the coffee pots from paper too.
I guess it's possible to make anything from paper if you put your mind to it!

It's getting there!
All the beautiful cakes were made by Kim Saulter. 
Eight years have gone by since I visited Kim in California...It still seems like yesterday!

Maybe now I'll try and decorate the Maisonette for Christmas.
I hope you're all having a great December.
I've been thinking this year I should make gifts using only the stuff I already have.
However, even after three months of lockdown all I have made are two Christmas decorations from felt I've had since I was a teenager!
