I bought myself a glass bird tree jewellery hanging display piece, it was on sale and I couldn't resist, but am a little disappointed as to hang necklaces off it the stand should be taller but it's still good to display things on.

I also got this LOVE sign that you're supposed to put photographs in but thought it would be perfect to show off my windmill hair clips and it says what I think of them and what I hope everyone who sees them will think!
|White wooden letters spelling LOVE with wires coming out and three windmills placed in the wire holders|
I also got this funky photo frame and painted the back piece white and then glued in two pieces of lace so that I could hang some earrings from them so you can get a better idea of how the earrings will hang in your ears.

I'm going to make a list of everything I'm putting in the cabinet with prices and keep a copy for myself and give a copy to the library staff so they can tick off what sells. The cabinet is free but they will take a small percentage of what sells. I think this is a fantastic idea as it enables me to show off my work to people without any cost to myself apart from some new props which I will reuse anyway. I've got my name down for a cabinet in another newly refurbished library but that's not until March next year.
It's been really interesting going through everything and thinking how I can display it statically so that people can get a good look at it even though it's going to be behind glass. It's meant that only certain things are suitable and like I mentioned earlier you also have to take into consideration the size of the props you use to display your items as the display cabinet; although tall, the gaps in between each shelf aren't enormously high and the shelves aren't adjustable as they're all glass too. This means I've rejected taking any needle felted pom pom earrings or any feather earrings as I just can't display them to their best effect. This is fine as I've got them then for stocking the shops or fairs now instead. I also now know I need to get making as am running very low on certain items especially now I've put specific items in the cabinet, so I had better get busy!
This is completely unrelated but had to share it, we went out for lunch yesterday, J and I and I found some fantastic things, firstly this:
|My frozen margarita and some nachos!|
|The Tardis from Doctor Who|
|Another shot of the Tardis|
It was outside the Doctor Who Experience exhibition, we didn't go in but I immediately thought of Meg the Grand and how she'd hate me for seeing it without her! ;) Hope you enjoy the pictures at least Meg!
