Today I made a little enamelware salt cellar to go in my kitchen (I'll show some pictures of the kitchen tomorrow). I made it for a Challenge in which you had to use card stock, popsicle sticks and decorative stickers to make a miniature. You could use an extra two more materials of your own choice. I used two small nails (as hinges for the lid) and paint.

While I was out in the garden spraying it with a coat of varnish, I spotted the pretty little blackbird's eggshell which has the same hues as the salt cellar, blue-green on the outside and white on the inside. An egg and some salt... perfect together!

  4. I do not know which is the cuter; your saltcellar or the egg. Lovely work. Do you know that Dante Alighieri said that the best food was a hard boiled egg sprinkled with salt? I'm looking forward the kitchen.

  5. Yes, I am looking forward to the kitchen too. The salt cellar is really neat especially as you make the cover closable.

  6. Rosanna, the egg is very cute. It's so small, like a thimble, it fits just on top of my index finger. I think Dante Alighieri was quite right...I also love a hard boiled egg with som salt, in fact, I'm boiling one right now for my breakfast.

    Thank you Sofia!

    Sans, I will post on the kitchen as soon as my son is finished on the computer. I can't get to my pictures now...

  7. What a beautiful composition! It's amazing what you did with paper and a popsickle stick . . . I thought perhaps it was a kit and wondering where I could get one! Well done!

  8. Thanks MiniMadWoman, you should try one yourself! It's not difficult, I used the technique others have used to make those French looking pitchers and buckets. I'm sure there's a tutorial online somewhere. The popsicle stick I used was from a Magnum which is a little bit bigger than an average popsicle stick.
