Show and Tell Monday

After a long leave of absence from Show and Tell Monday, I'm back! Here are just a couple of things I've been working on lately......

First, this pretty oriental style buffet/dresser


Before





.....and after







And these little mini-books....perfect for sketching, autographs, notes.....






This one is still in the works......

In my spare time I have been totally reorganizing the brick and mortar Cozy Cottage......check back for a new slide show coming soon!
