Another useful recyled item...and my Japanese doll.

I have been busy this time with something that is not made of paper! I saw the idea ages ago, and thought i must give that a go!
The other day I went to my local secondhand shop, and came accross these lovley sausers and plate by wedgewood. Unfortunatly they were missing the cup. I found some small glasses that suited in size between the plates.
I made sure that everything was squeeky clean and dry. Then glued it all together with superglue :O) My very own cake stand that is unique and only cost a couple of pounds to make :O)) (not one for the dishwasher). The muffin shaped pot is just placed on the top, it dosen't usually sit there but it did for the photo :O) I bought that at Søsterene Grene.
I should mention that since it is a small 'cake stand' it is actually better for serving sweeties and chocolates on.. mmm :OD

I also took a picture of another little project I am working on at the moment, I have a small but growing collection of small wooden Japanese dolls. So when I saw this little unpainted wooden doll at Panduro, I decided to try and make my own :O)
It is not finished yet as you see she has no face yet, and I plan to paint some small flowers on her jacket . I have glued some wooden beads to her head to look like hair buns, and have painted her with a mix of matt and shiney hobby paints.
