I mentioned I have the theme of “A Christmas Carol” for the library… Victorian… Charles Dickens… right?
While trolling for ideas on the internet, I saw a pic of a little chair, a crutch, a top hat, and fiddle set just in a corner… and I *LOVED* it! Tiny Tim’s chair. Can everyone say, “Aaaaaaawwww”? So I’ve been wanting a top hat (and I may have found one on Amazon – of course… we have little kids’ oak chairs for our kids’ reading table, that was NOT going to be a problem… today… I made a crutch.
There’s always a pile of limbs around somewhere on this place… so I slid out to one (it’s alternately icy and muddy around here!) and cut a forked branch. A little time with my sanding wheel on my grinder… A torn up sheet wrapped around the top.
I liked it.
I had drug the end through some mud… but that white sheet? It was just too…. white!
Well… dirt stains are not a problem around here… ha ha… but the wind was howling today and it was cold, blowing the next storm in after melting some and now re-freezing. Well, I’d just do the next best thing.
I made a hot cuppa! The tea and honey was delish, but the tea bag got put to use too!
Nice brown tea bag stains quite well.
Much more “authentic”!
Now… that top hat…
