Switching Gears



I decided to put my country store aside and work on the mini version of my grandparents kitchen. If only I could finish one before starting another, I wouldn't have five unfinished projects! 
I gave the tablecloth a good glue and water bath and this technique seems to work very well. I will also try this technique with the curtains as soon as I can find the right material. Apples are hard to find! 
I also set the table with some dumplings and gravy! Grandma's specialty! 
I found a great wood pattern for the walls that looks just like the real thing! It was a hard find and I am very happy with the end results. 
Still a lot to get done, so off I go!

Great Website

I stumbled across this great website when searching for brick wallpaper for my Grandparents 'mimi' kitchen! It has tons of different textures and the best thing....they are higher resolution! Check it out at http://www.cgtextures.com/
