This Old House is now completed!
Unusually for me I am actually quite pleased with how this turned out! It isn’t 100% perfect but it does look good imho!
Following are some close up sections showing the various elements in each of the little niches:
At the very top of the attic are two owls peering out with a small mulberry paper rose alongside. Above them is a small cabochon with a paper butterfly adhered on the back. Below the owls on the right is a basket of flowers and next to that is a pile of ‘vinyl’ records; all the types of items that might be relegated to the attic!
Two buttons form the clock on the wall with a sand timer and paper rose; next comes a pile of books on a small section, below them are some wooden beads and a mixture of leaves and small silver beads. A small feathered robin with several loose feathers ‘stuffed’ around him with a music cleft adhered on the wall behind him. Below the robin is a teddy bear, a small clay face (donated by Lottie), a found piece of blue pottery and a small glass vial. The beaded ‘flower’ is handmade. In the large right hand section is a handmade pin of flowers, clay button and lace with several charms -key, postcard and buttons.
From right to left – two small bottles filled with seed beads; a found cone (found in my garden!) together with some toadstools from Wild Orchid Crafts and a small clay butterfly button courtesy of Lottie! In the left hand side the shells and white pieces are from my own beach combing collection together with several charms.
A close up of the clock; the small clock was a button from which I removed the shank and adhered the button onto a black scalloped button.
This was such fun to make and decorate, I now need to make a few more purchases and find a few more items to make another one!
Thank you for looking x
