New cabinet :-)

While searching on internet on the secondhand site I found this very nice old German cabinet. I immediatly felt in love with it and had to get it. My husband told me that it would have no use to make a offer on it cause he thought they would ask a very high price for it. But I couldn't resist to make a low offer and to our big suprise the same evening got a e-mail that just for € 25,- more it could be mine.
So last Monday I drove 115km to have a look at the cabinet. They said the cabinet was painted  very well but when I took a look the painting was very bad. I could see many drops in it, many hears, and little bobbles created by bad painting tools. But because the cabinet already stole my heart I took it home. I hoped that giving the cabinet a good scrup with sandpaper I would have a good base for a second paint layer. But even that wasn't possible. So yesterday I started to get the paint off with blowlamps. So far it is going very well. They even didn't use a primer. Just one layer of paint.
Here is the picture that they used on internet. Tomorrow show you a picture of how it looks now.
(I tryed to get the picture here but I copiet the pic from internet to Word and now can't place it here
:-(     ... so you will have to wait untill tomorrow)

Vintage creation

This time I made two vintage creations in white. One ofcourse inspired by Tilda. Both creations made off old cotton and very old Frence lace. For the heart I also used some glass beads.
I think will hang them on my new cabinet. See my next message.

My latest creation

My latest creation is not a Tilda one. I made a weddingcake topper for a lady who has a company were you can rent doves for a wedding or funeral. I'm very proud of the birds that I designed myself and now finally can show you. Because I made the topper exclusive for a company I can't show you pictures here but you can take a look at the url. Just scroll down untill you see the weddingcake. The cake was not made by me just the topper. So curious what you think about it.
If you want to have a weddingcake topper like that for yourself please contact me for further information. Every topper will be exclusive and no topper will be the same. I will not use the same lace again for a topper. All creations will be made with your own wishes for color etc.
