Three Tiered Tray



I've had a fun day in the studio, just me and my power
tools!  I'm turning a box of old enamelware dishes
into new and exciting creations!

    2. My old Dad always said "Never let a woman loose with anything powered by electric, unless it's a washing machine, a Hoover or an iron". Ha!

  4. I like those things you made, but I cant think of a use for them, unless they are used to keep screws, nails and nuts and bolts in them? Yes? My grandma had cakestands that looked like the ones you made. After she died my cousin inherited them and she now uses them to display her collection of thimbles.

    1. You could set it on your kitchen counter and put fruit on it, cookies, and anything you want. I've seen them in bathrooms with wash cloths and soaps on them, too. The possibilities are endless!

  5. Lovely! I love the yellow...I don't think I've ever seen the enamelware in yellow before. I see you have a few other new pieces in the shop. I wish we lived a lot closer to one another so I didn't have to pay shipping. Oh wait...it's probably a good thing that we don't because I see way too many things I like. lol Have a great evening.

    2. Wasn't that awful? Several victims (I include the injured) were French, also Americans and the British woman who died started out Spanish so many many people affected. I know that area well as I have a friend who works next door to Westminster Abbey. It is always packed with tourists and of course these days they stand around taking selfies even at 10 o'clock at night so really easy targets. London will keep on going; probably with more ugly lumps of concrete in front of everything and more dates to remember for the wrong reasons.
