I felt inspired...

I got so inspired when I recieved the giveaway from Marie and saw the cute little green box she had made. I had to try myself and made this kit today. Thanks Marie, I sure hope you don't get offended by me copying your design. The pitcher I guess most of you know, but the tray is my own design. I just love the beautiful miniatures you can make out of cardboard and paper... Remember to click the picture to enlarge.


  1. Annie, They are so wonderful and look like real antiques! I have fallen in love with paper and cardboard goods too! It is amazing what can be made!!! The possibilities are endless!

  2. I know how much joy can give to build a small, pretty, humble cardboard tray ...
    Yours is really beautiful, green: if I not mistaken, is your favorite color ...
    Very personal and original.
    I love it!
    And the pitcher, as known, is always an intriguing subject :-)
    Mini hugs, Flora

  3. I´ts great Annie! I think we all know the basic designs of all the things but it is your personal touch that matters. I like the color match.
    Love, Susanne

  4. I've never yet found the jug shape but I'll keep looking as I'd love to have a go - your tray is lovely and I like how you've created the handles. That's an inspiring touch in itself!

  5. Beautiful! you would never guess they are cardboard.

  7. Gorgeous Annie, so perfectly 'aged'.

  8. they are beautiful made with that special personal "it" to it. As said before from Dark Squirrel Victoria: One would never guess it is made of cardboard

  9. I love them Annie! Your aging is wonderful on those pieces.

    I know the French perfume label that you used on the tray. I have one, isn't it gorgeous! I have not seen that label online though.

  10. Que encantador conjunto te ha quedado precioso.Me encantan los bolsos que haces he visitado tu tienda de ventas y no dudes que seré una de tus clientas.


  11. Just Gorgeous! You did a fantastic job as did Marie with this wonderful design.


  12. Le ha quedado muy bonito!


  13. They look beautiful, I'll have to have another go at pitchers, and try some other shapes too.

  14. Dear Annie, your shabby kit are just beautiful and the little "metal" box are perfect ! I really like this design, I've the same in my garden with flowers, and I was inspired by it when I realized the giveaway ! I'm very happy that you like it ;) and it's a very big advantage of the blogs community, share ideas and find inspiration ! Thank you too Annie !
