All the fun of the fair

I had heaps of fun yesterday dressing this kitchen hutch which will be for sale on my table at the Sydney Northern Districts Doll and Bear Show tomorrow...

... as will this six piece living/dining room set. It'll be hard to part with it though because I really love it! I guess I just have to look it as a chance to share that love :) 

Offering these 'one of a kind' pieces created from my extensive stash of furniture and accessories (some purchased, most of which have been revamped/decorated by me, some created by my own fair hands) is part of the process of de-stashing in preparation for a move back to New Zealand some time next year. Quite tough to do but entirely necessary - I'd have to hire a cargo ship for my exclusive use if I was to take it all with me!

Modern kitchen revamp revealed

Here it is! This is the kitchen revamped and reconstructed. 

The original sink was discarded and a new recessed sink installed, I'm still waiting for the 'gooseneck' taps to come from the US.

 I've been playing with decals lately, had fun with a few plates and this set of storage jars.

Preserves by Nina Eary 

Tiny jam jar from LugArt Petite

'Pasta' plate from Carrie at A Lavender Dilly

I've had the vegetables in my stash for a long time, the person I bought them from is no longer around, a pity because they're really lovely. 

Just a reminder of how it looked before ... 

... worth all the effort I think.
