Working with sea shells again

Hello dear readers,

Between working on the shop fronts and the market stands, I managed to make a few swap items. There
were tiny seashells in my stock waiting for me to do something about them.

The shop fronts are ready for the exposition.  It's only left to pack them carefully.

I was not happy with the lettering on the Jeweler's shop and changed it.  I think it looks better now.

Here are the two shops which I did not show you in my last post.

All the clocks, except the grandfather's clock were made by me.

I made the bead bags (First try) and the bead curtain.

Now I have a whole week to clean and make a few changes for the market stands.

I hate to write about our political situation, just want to let you know that we are safe in
our home.

I wish you all a wonderful weekend and blessings.

  6. You're always in my heart whenever we hear about it in the news... good to hear you're safe! - Your seashell work is amazing as always... I'm really proud to have such a shell box in my collection (btw it will go to my future project, Gertie Gumthrop's retirement home... the bearies didn't dare to argue with an old witch... *teehee*) And the last two shops are stunning, too... beautiful work.
