Finally got around to making my blog badge, in the manner of Magpie Ethel's.

I had to include the little girl (from a paper doll) - she's my trademark! Why a ferris wheel? I dunno, just thought it would look cool with cherries hanging off it. Even though it's not a merry-go-round, I think I'll call it my "cherry-go-round"! I hate working with crepe paper - there must be a simple and easy way to fold it!

Here are my dishes all washed up and in the china cupboard ~

What did I do with all the stuff that was in the cupboard before the dishes? Well . . . nothing yet!

As you can see, I still haven't done anything with this hutch top either. I was planning on setting it on top of the kitchen "island", which is against a wall; but, when I told Mister my plan, he got the idea that he would keep cereal boxes in this piece. Oh, no he doesn't!

Great badge. Very fitting for you.

If you put the hutch top up & fill it up quickly, then he can't fill it with boxes ... chuckle! Oh, we've been thru things like this ... & as you said, 'oh, no! he won't'. Chuckle.

Have a lovely week.
TTFN ~ Hugs, Marydon

Great that you included the little paper doll gal. How can you HATE CREPE PAPER? I love it! I have found the easiest way to do a ruffle like that is to sew it first - and of course the vintage stuff works better!

Love, love, love your badge! I'm slowing working on mine - in my head mostly. Your hutch looks great!

Oh I like your badge!! First I've heard of such thing, for your blog! Love all that milk glass I'm seeing here too! I picked up a few pieces over the weekend, at a nearby multi-family garage sale, so I was very happy about that!! First one of the season!! Still cold around here (NY) though, so I hope it warms up again soon!! ~tina
