    Catching up on French-themed items. And a table…

    Filed under Art Projects, Back in Stock, Marie Antoinette, Miniatures, Teri Calia

    This table. I was looking for a replacement for the table with drawers that Teri Calia used in Marie’s Boudoir Shadowbox, below (no luck on such a beast with drawers) BUT I found this versatile white table. I think that scalloped side decor would work well with a French scene like the one Teri designed.

    Note the painted brass fan and boxes from the Tiny Little Fashion Boxes Collage Sheet in that scene — so sweet!

    And the Glass Pitcher from that project is also back in stock (used as a vase with pale roses).

    See the supply list from Teri’s project (still quite a few items available)! You can view more photos on Teri’s original blog post (but note: that was from 2015 — long before we moved to the current site, so the product links do not work… use this supply list instead).

     
    What is NEW today?

    These new (or back-in-stock) items are mostly French-themed (sourced with the current Ephemera Queen Kit in mind).

    Marie’s Boudoir Giveaway!

    Ah, there’s a photo of Teri’s entire project!

    EVERYTHING in Teri’s Supply List is included in today’s Giveaway!

    I’m only highlighting a couple of the NINE items in the supply list/Giveaway:
    Tiny Paper Roses – Pink Cream Variegated (and on sale!)
    More Marie Antoinette Collage Sheet
    Large Brass Fan

    Note that the shabby chic turquoise metal box Teri used as the room box is long since sold out. But that big flourish on top reminds me of the Large Patina French Crown Charm, so I’m including that as a substitute!

    I’m also including the other 2 items shown below as extras not in the supply list! (Subs for a teacup/plate for pastry, and a close match for the candle on table.)

    To enter the Marie’s Boudoir Giveaway drawing all you have to do is leave a comment BELOW on this blog post TODAY or TOMORROW (the deadline is 11:59 pm PST, MONDAY Night, March 15, 2021).

    Don’t forget to leave your (hello!) correct email address, too, so I can contact the winner; your email address does not need to be made public. Note: I’m offering free shipping, too, but only within the USA. International shipping will still apply.

    Please be patient! Spammers try to post crap here a lot so comments are moderated. So if you don’t see your post in the comments section, be patient and check back in a few hours before re-posting it, please!

    Now a question for you: see that frothy resin frame around the portrait of Marie? I’m just guessing but I’d say it’s about 2-1/2″ tall. Is that a size/style of oval frame you’d be interested in?
