WOYWW 62

Yay I'm back, well for this week at least, mum is at home recovering from hip op, which hopefully seems to have gone well, though she was a bit wierded out that they didnt do a general it was an epidural and and a local, now my mum hates the sight of blood so she must have absolutely hated that, all being well she'll be dancing in the aisles before too long.  I really missed having access to my craft space, but each day went really quickly, but I must admit I was so grateful to come home, the saying is true . . there is no place like home. . especially when that is where your craft stuff is, LOL

Well having been away I came back to not much mojo but had been prepping the jewelery box before I left so took up where I had left off, apart from that been OCD'ing on the organisation of my area, (so sad I know).  The box is not finished but getting there, colours totally changed but hey thats art for you.  Top and bottom are still just gessoed, not sure whether to just gloss them up to highlight other paint or to do . .  . well I dont really know, we'll see as it evolves.  On the drawers and the circles used Adirondack Pearl which just has a lovely glimmer to it.  So there we are, more work to do, now do I add black doodling around the circles etc, what do you think.  I really like it as is , but dont want to stop too soon or go to far, what do you all think.

For those who have no idea this is part of Whats on Your worktop Wednesday, go here to find the start.

Looking fabby, Pidd! Love your colour scheme. Good to see you back and glad to hear your mum's op went okay - can't remember if they knocked my mum out for hers or not but epidural sounds horrid.

Good news for your Mum - hope her recovery continues apace. The jewellery box is fab...if it were me, I;d stay away from adding black outlines, but really, I am so not the person to ask. My night school art teacher told e the biggest problem I had was knowing when to stop. He was right!

Daniele said...

wow what a great altered cabinet thanks for the peek
hugs

Pallavi said...

I've never heard of a local for a hip operation. I thought that would be major surgery. Glad to hear she is doing well, though.

Your jewelry box is gorgeous. I'm totally impressed with it. Happy belated WOYWW. It's good to see you back.

Paula Gale said...

Hi there - i've never been to your blog before but thanks for visiting mine - oh the wonders of WOYWW...

Hope your mum has a speedy recovery from the surgery and it gives her a new lease of life...

Now then, your jewellery box project is FAB! I have the very same box and must have had it for over 20 years now (where did that time go?). As it is deep mahogony, its doesn't match any other colourscheme in my house, and particulalry my bedroom, so you've given me the most fantastic inspiration to give it a new lease of life and MAKE it fit the colourscheme... thanks so much, and hope to be in touch again soon.

Love that jewellery box - fab and the colours are Wow! Hope your mum did not stress too much at the epidural - I would have to be OUT for that operation - any operation.
As I am late I saw your Asda stash first - great bargains and I love those wings. Now can I persuade DH to go to Asda!
