The Haberdashery


I love little shops like this, that are so cozy and warm when you walk in. There's a little dog to greet you, whose favorite place to chew on his bone is under the Elephant Ear Philadendron. Everything is in it's place, and there's always a "Special" going on. Today it's scissor sharpening! Only $5 per pair!
The stucco on the front of the building even has a "lacey" look and feel to it .
This effect was made by using a lace stamp from the Chocolate Baroque set Lace Fragments.

The Store Front - complete with pins in the
pin cushion! With thimble flower pots,
and a scissor easel, tape measure
for a hours of operation sign, lace
wallpaper, and buttons for flower centers.





The hours of operation sign is hanging on the door, and at
closing time, the proprietor will turn the sign around. Here's the
"Special of the day!" I love that blue striped wainscoat wallpaper.

For the window and door, I used one of the
Spellbinders plastic containers that
some dies came in. The door knob is a brad.
There's a stool right there by the window,
if you'd like a seat.
Please note the wallpaper border,
and be aware of the exit, just in case...
Bone-chewing in the shade,
but still wary and on guard.


A place to write your note to the recipient

  1. Oh my what a treat? Thank you for allowing me to visit your little haven of tranquility & delight. There's so much detail in this & I love the little scenario you wrote - you could write a little book to go with this. The recipient will have to be someone really really special - it's a beauty.
