Hello dear readers,
Suddenly it is December again. I feel as if I skipped November doing very little. For example, the book nook isn't finished yet. Anyhow, before it will be finished I want to show you how the opposite wall looks because after assembly it will be difficult to take photos.
My friend Sarit is ordering the mirrors and when they are ready, she'll come over, and together we'll fix the lights (with what I have in my stash because the ones ordered online have not arrived). We'll also assemble the book nook and install the mirror.
The empty spaces are for the mirror. I add stairs for the entrance to the book shop.
When my husband, may he rest in peace, and I resided in Bogota, Colombia, we enjoyed very much the months of December, especially the time before Christmas when the stores and shopping centers were decorated with hundreds of pots of poinsettias and other Christmas decorations. Just for nostalgia I decided to make these flowers and did my best with what supplies I had at hand.
I made all the pots, the large one from egg-carton, the smaller pots from fired clay.
I used this punch to make the plants.
This is a smaller version of the plant.
I used this star punch for making it.
