A little more MacKenzie-Childs
I'm joining Bloggeritatville for Thrifty Thursday and Between Naps on the Porch for Tablescape Thursday
A quick tutorial on imitation:
I needed one more thing to match my MacKenzie-Childs knock-offs I made to match my new M-C clock, so I bought a cylinder at GW and covered it with M-C tissue paper.
This is how to adhere tissue paper to glass. Cut the tissue paper a bit larger than needed.
Slap on some mod podge with a brush and gently lay the tissue over the glue:
Work in sections and repeat!! Trim the edges with sharp scissors. It's as easy as that.
I am joining Between Naps on the Porch today for Tablescape Thursday. Hop on over to see some lovely tables.
I would love to pretend that this is my kitchen and these are my dishes and glasses, that I polish this silverware weekly and that this cool checkered table and chairs are all mine...
...and that this is my dining room, with the most lovely fluted bowls and plates and the sweetest stemware.
But I can't take once ounce of credit. This is the farmhouse at MacKenzie-Childs in Aurora, NY and these are the displays in 2 of the rooms. It is the most happiest house to visit. The gift shop is so stunning and, although I didn't buy anything for my table, I did purchase this clock:
I suppose now I should consider setting my own table, huh?
