Le Chocolatier

 Sadly not a minute for any new creations this week ... maybe tomorrow  :-)
In the meantime here are some pictures of my Le Chocolatier roombox which was an entry in the Minimum World Roombox Shop Competition last month. 

Isn't choosing the colours, paper & fabric the fun part

Behind the counter ... cake stands, biscuit tins etc

Shelves filled with paper items and even more canisters ... that's mainly because I cant do fimo!!
Its a chocolate shop selling 'chocolate themed' items as well as cakes !!

Chocolate Books
The chocolate rose tower cake was bought from 'Good Enough to Eat' and is exactly that!!

A selection of hot chocolate with flakes, loads of whipped cream and marshmallows from Fran ... yummy :-)

I like this quiet peaceful corner
And one scrummy real hot chocolate as a reward

And now me thinks enough canisters, decoupage etc ... next week I need to do something completely different .... I'm thinking a pretty pink nursery, lots of ideas  and am gathering my pink fabrics in preparation :-)

Pretty pink shabby chic

I have spent a lot of my time off this week putting together some shabby chic pink shelves and a shop counter. I love pink, love shabby chic and love decorating these canisters using decoupage techniques.

The hardest part has been getting this post together and uploading the photos, I definitely need a lot more practice :-)

More and more canisters ...

More canisters and plastic placemats

Jug, books and plastic placemats

The little girl doll was bought from a fair many years ago as she reminded me of my little girl who is now 32!

My first blog ....

Well having spent lots of very pleasing time browsing other miniature and crafting blogs I decided that creating my own blog would be the first thing on my to-do list when I retire from the day job ... having a week's holiday and lots of rain I'm giving it a go now .... I'm not very patient when trying new technology and am finding this a bit hit or miss but hope to have a nice post and pictures up by the end of this week, Jackie
