Feeling refreshed from our holiday I have enjoyed moving everything round here at home and getting things ready for the next fair. One item that will be coming with me is a rather lovely set of edible drawers (not the chocolate kind from naughty shops...ahem) but of the French variety!
A few weeks back hubby and I went to pick up a velvet marriage display cushion I had bought from a couple who deal in lovely French finds. We met at their business premises which was full of the most gorgeous French antiques, I could have spent hours rummaging. These five floral drawers were laid on a sideboard in the warehouse so I asked how much and a deal was done with promises made by hubby that he would make the wooden stand for them.
Very clever hubby spent all day in the garage on Tuesday beavering away and TA DA! here are the floral drawers in their new home and painted of course in Annie Sloan's Old White. Now I have the age old dilemma, do I keep or do I sell? I may covet them for a while and then pass them on.
More Edwardian underwear, a corset dating from about 1912, unfortunately it is sooo tiny I have had to stuff it with a feather cushion to display it as I have no mannequin small enough!
Not in bad condition for a hundred years old.
Another early Edwardian corset, and again, absolutely tiny!
So there you have it, drawers and corsets!!
Have a lovely weekend whatever you are doing.
