This is what the shadowbox looks like now:

I did some research about what farm kitchens looked like around the 1900s, and decided to "upgrade" the kitchen so that I can sell it at the miniature show and sale in September.
I already had some blue spatter pots, so I ordered a blue spatter Jug, plates, and cups to match. I also ordered the adorable sacs of flour, sugar, salt and potatoes. I took the white pail out of the kitchen sink. It might go back in again, but I want to put something in the pail. I'm thinking perhaps a wash rag in water. The "shelf" that is positioned in front of the shadowbox will be mounted on the wall eventually, as will the towel rack.
The original kitchen items are old dollar store pieces, and will need to be sanded before I paint them, since they are shellacked with quite a heavy varnish. I love the process of putting together these small scenes.
I would like to extend a warm welcome to all my new followers. I am delighted to have you "along for the ride" as I chronicle my miniature adventures!
Hugs and Kisses to all my lovely followers,
