Drats....! Read the post below this first....

Oy! Can't believe this picture fell out of the sequence.....

Anyway.....it's the Hatter's worktable. I made a similar one to take to the July show to offer for sale. It has a Mad Hatter's hat instead of the lady's hat and the color scheme is a bit different. I made both tables...the legs are miniature spools. Appropriate, eh? The tiny spools of thread were wound onto Tiny Turnings; the larger spools were purchased and the ribbon wrapped 'round. The mirror was a give away prize from Kate Whitaker. All the lace flats were wound by hand and stacked on the shelf. The boxes are also from templates I found online.


Apparently lost this one as well....made the little upholstered bench. This is a good shot of one of Kat the Hat's primitive hats with the mushrooms. That is her steampunk hat on the window sill.


The Victorian mourning hat was made by Nancy Manders....I bought it in Chicago. I made the bride's hat and all the other's in here, including the little silk bags and the 2 parasols.
Hat boxes are from templates I got online...I traced them onto scrapbook paper. The hall tree/hat stand was an old piece that was repainted and "shabbied" for this project. The Queen of Hearts round table just sort of came together while I'll was playing with spools.

I hope I haven't forgotten anything....

Off to get ready for a tea party!

Later
