What will be a Haberdashery

The second floor of the Gateman building which has been until quite recently, the studio for a local artist is now soon to be a menswear (I always hear the voice of  Mr. Humphries from Are You Being Served?) shop run by a newly immigrated from "the old world" tailor.
These are just a few first items - I want it to be quite elegant and live up to that poster of the Arrow man, isn't he handsome?

Bottles for the Drug Store

I've been looking back on my blog and my, I have some pictures to take!  For example, the dining room in the "big house" has a new floor laid, has had for well over a year and I don't have a photo of it.
But for now I just have some pictures of some bits done over the past Memorial Day weekend.  I've had some toothache and doing mini-bits is wonderfully soothing while waiting to see the dentist.
Below is an old piece I made as a teenager.  As an adult I sanded it as well as I could and painted the shelves white.  That bit on the top is just sitting there on a whim with grip wax - it won't be staying.

But what was made were some new bottles and labels put on.  I just love bottles arrayed on a shelf...!
I'm going to need a TON more for a drug store.

Carte-de-visite and some books

Yes, it has been a whole year since I last posted...however here are some Carte-de-visite's and books I made recently and a rounded edge tray.   The tray will need more work or at least a very fine doily on it.
