I wasn't sure what this was, there were two, this one and a blue one. I immediately planned to pair them with a glass pedestal to use as a dome, perhaps for a wedge of cheese.
A set of 6 white linen cocktail napkins with a raised white-on-white embroidered design. And there's the edge of the other lovely blue glass dome thingy.
A vintage (I think) glass nutmeg grinder with it's charming little crank handle.
And a tiny glass salt & pepper set with traces of pepper still showing up in the grooves of the design. Notice the nice patina on the top of the left one.
And I can hardly wait to pour this linen water into my iron and inhale the scent of those glorious steamy vapors. This is a container I already had, and today I filled it with the scented water I had left over from my recent experiment with lavender and lemon balm lotion. If you missed that post, you can read about that here.

After all the paint was applied, I just popped it into the microwave for 4 minutes. I let it cool down before rinsing with cool water and this is the result.
I still have to hang it up to dry though.
But I was dyeing to show ewe how it came out.

I used 2 cake pedestals, a handful of seashells and I had a plan for a little more sea inspiration.
I had extra batter and wondered if these cookie cutters, paired with a pie plate would work as a mini cake pan.
And just a little reminder that the winner of my scented balsam moose pillow Giveaway will be selected on Monday! See last Thursday's post for more pictures and details of how to enter.

Like the perfect spot in my tiny village, where I took these photos yesterday,
And if I lived there, I would have a bakery in the downstairs part
and in the autumn, I would make spice cakes in little ramekins,

Perhaps not PINK moose, but that's the fun part of the giveway! I have chosen my two favorite colors, and whipped up this tiny moose pillow and stuffed it with fragrant balsam fir from the North Woods of Maine.
Oh, and I'm including a tiny canvas bag in matching colors, just because.
All you need to do to enter this giveway is just leave me a little comment, just to let me know you're there. Just say "hi" and introduce yourself, or say anything you'd like really. I love reading your comments! The winner will be selected by Simon, my parrot and be announced in Monday's post. You can enter twice, by making another comment in tomorrow's post too, because I just love reading your comments!

Covered with water droplets, his wing looks iridescent.
After bath Shabby Chic impression.
Simon focused on his after bath pizza.
At least one of us knows how to focus here.
