fairy bed

I just love these little wire beds. I love making them and I love looking at them.

How pretty is this?

Ok, so it might have no real use, unless you have a dollhouse or a visiting fairy, but its so delicate and fine and... just... well, pretty!

This is the second wire bed I've made and its a bit fancier than the first one. It has a mattress made from a tea dyed napkin - it was stained and in the throw out pile so I decided to use the best bits.

It also has a little 'crochet' cushion, made from a piece of doily.

I actually made this little bed a couple of months ago but didn't have my 'light box' in the office where I could use it easily.

Plus, to make matters worse, I tried to change the pendant light in the office to test a new one, and ended up stuffing up the light fixture. I now have no light in the office.

I think I need an electrician.

In the end I rigged up two floor lamps, a desk lamp, a box and a white sheet and got some pics.

One of these days I might actually have a proper set up for taking photos of things. I just need good lighting like the kind I use when making films...

Anyway, I got pretty decent pics of the bed so I'm happy.

  1. I'm just getting around to reading what was going on when we were getting ready to move, so I'm a little late to the party. I've been working diligently, because I just can't seem to let things go! lol

    Anyway...this is so darn sweet and cute and whimsical! I love your wire works!


I appreciate you taking the time to read my blog and leave feedback! Come back soon. :)
