Wow, after 4 months, the 6 Chippendale chairs are finished and on their way to their final destination in England. Here are a few photos of them in my dollhouse, sometime next year I want to make a set of chairs for my dining room and a table, but not the same as these ones.
The six chairs.
Around the table.
This was the first time that I put the Stokesay dinnerware on the table since I bought them earlier this year, I need a few more wine glasses and a few other things.
The bottom of one of the chairs, showing the little brass plates with my name that my husband makes for me to sign my work with.
And a few photos of my Spring Garden, although summer has definitely started these last few days with very hot temperatures.
You can see my workroom's window on the right side of the tree, on the left of the tree is a huge outdoor room that we call a "stoep" in South Africa. We eat many suppers here on hot summer days and all festive days like Christmas and so on are celebrated on the "stoep".
We had an unusual amount of rain this spring and my iceberg roses rewarded me with an amazing display of roses.
Have a wonderful week.
Tessie was Right! - Tessie won this one. I made the bolster pillows for her "chair" this morning... If it were the right size, I would be fighting her for it. It really does...
