Newest Projects

Hi All!  Here is a sample of some of the things I've been making for the Winter shows here in Florida.


I made a dozen or so of these book stacks with the glass ink well. I really like how they turned out.  I think they would look nice in an 18th Century setting, though they could be used for a Medieval library, too. They have paper pages which open, but are blank, and are covered with scrapbook paper and some leather.

I had made a Hookah for my Alice project (someday I'll get a caterpillar) and got several requests for one so I made the orders and a few more while I was at it.  The two customers both have Tobacconist Shops. 



Speaking of books, I also made a few singles and stacks that would be appropriate for a Wizard or Witch.  These have paper pages (blank) and are covered in leather.


I will probably not put any of these in my Etsy shop until after the shows but if anything catches your eye, just send me a message and I'd be happy to arrange a sale for any of my followers.

The most exciting thing to report is that I just finished a special request for a fellow blogger and it will be on it's way by the weekend.  But I will let her have the fun of revealing it when she receives it!

Now back to work....

Edited to add....while I usally cut my own quill feathers, those two you see pictured here are from my lovely friend Nikki.  She always sends some little extra thing in her packages and these were the latest.  I hope she is happy I put them to good use!

I absolutely love them! I'm an author myself, so I am completely ga-ga over those perfect little books. What a treasure!

Janice said...

Some lovely pieces as usual Tabitha. Good luck with your shows I am sure everything will sell like hot cakes.

Thank you all for your kind comments. I find I get so involved in the making that I sometimes neglect the Blog and the sharing part.

Kristy, I'd be happy to swap with you (or anyone one else for that matter.) One of my followers has already snapped up the green hookah and I am very happy about that. It made me hunt around for a few more colored glass beads to add to a couple of them still on the worktable. I like the brass and silver ones but the bit of glass does add a little something unusual.

Ara said...

I love these!! All of them. I'm hoping I can get something like this for Gomez's study.... need to finish the actual room first though - haha! They're just great!!

Katie said...

Loving your Hookas over here, too!!
