The First Frost

I woke yesterday believe it or not to the first frost! Autumn is most definitely here. The temperatures have noticeably dropped and we have lit the fire. It put me in the mood for finishing Frostys Snowman Shop. There was lots of shelves to be stocked and labels to be added and of course a light dusting of snow!

Here's a peek through the glass in the door!

And another through the side window.

Even a really sneaky peek through the glass roof!

So here it is completely finished.

Shall we go in.....

I love the little bench - the artwork and fabric are just gorgeous.

Of course there needs to be mirrors a snowman needs to see how well that top hat fits!

The most wonderful thing about kits by the Betterleys are the little extras!

I used the little artwork snowmen and added them to some of the left over papers and popped them into the little wooden frames - add some glamour dust and hey presto - frosty paintings!

Alterations service available - maybe that scarf is just a bit too long!
I love the little facials tray!

And finally the whole scene all together.

Claire, Frosty's is delightful! I too love all the details you have put in it, and the extras you have managed to add. Clever you! You should be very proud of this one, but then your work is always beautiful.

You are going into cold weather and we are going into warm weather here in Aus!
