My Altered Dresser is finished.
Close up of the Pin Cushion in  a little tea cup. 
I added some flower sequins to some of the pins.
Close up of the cute miniature sewing basket. 
The basket is about 1 inch wide.
I was etching last week and here are my pieces. I painted them with a Turquoise dabber and then sanded them. 
Some stamps work better than others.

It's Wednesday and you need to run to Julia's blog to see what everyone else has on their desk and what they have been up to.

Your dresser is fabulous, very feminine. Thanks for your comments on my blog I didn't realise there was a stamp club in Blackpool do you go?

Thanks for visiting my WOYWW desk over in South Africa. The ink tool holder was bought at a local stationer and it is meant to hold the stamps for the office. I have seen Tim's one but this one does not have the clip so you don't need two hands. It is not quite as high, but works just the same. I coloured sticker dots for the tops of the handles so I can see the right one at a glance.

Apologies for being so late in visiting this week but I really wanted to pop in and see what you were up to last week. Love your altered dresser and the wee house you've made since is terrific. Hopefully I will get around much quicker tomorrow. Elizabeth x #73
