A Trio of cakestands

I have been working on my etsy shop all day and my brain has kinda frazzled!!!!!I am getting a post in before I Give up for the day!!

Here are some pictures of my latest cake stands ..........

This is actually a remake I smashed the original one by slamming a car door on it so I had to chisel the bottom tier and support off...which was a job and a half I can tell you!!!!
I had a rummage around in my "cake stand making" box and found a replacement bottom tier and support that was perfect, I think I like it more than the ordinal one!!!!

This is another recent make, a beautiful pressed glass yellow plate.......
With a fifties yellow rose saucer on the top!!!! lovely and sunny!!Unlike the weather outside!!!

And this beauty is part of a miss-matched tea for two set on my etsy shop! ALTHOUGH!!! I am having to keep fighting my daughter Poppy for it as she wants it for her dressing table to hang all her jewellery off of!
I am thinking of having a rummage around in my box and making up a cake stand for my very first give away.......what do you think??? Would anyone be interested????????


  1. Oooooooh I love your cake stands! I'm sure a cake stand giveaway would be very well received!!!!!!!

    I met up with my S-I-L when down in the Gower and she collects china to make various bits and bobs with. I hadn't seen her for a bit and her collection blew me away! We were laughing, as a friend of hers saw her collection the day before me and told her she had way too much...the thing was, she had only shown her what was on her dresser in her house, her double garage is crammed full of china too!!!!!! I was ever so slightly envious of some of her pieces...truly beautiful! Lovely to be inspired!

    Have a lovely rest of a day! xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

  4. oh boy yes please...did you really need to ask!!

    I am sure anyone would be chuffed to win one of your designs. I know I would...you can never have enough cake stands ( who needs shoes)!


  5. Can you tell Popii to put a link on her Follower Tab.

    I dont know if thats the right name for it. You know when you click on your followers and you get sent to another page where you can see other sites they follow, but also Links to their Blogs?

    There isnt one there on Popiis?

    I keep having to come to you and then go from your link on your Blog:-/
