Oh, August. I'm going to be honest with you. You're miserable. And hot. And buggy. And these daily afternoon downpours only make it worse. Doing anything outside (or even opening the door) is right out. So I thumb my nose at you, August! My curtains are closed, the lights are off, and my new Niche Shrine from Alpha Stamps arrived, so I don't even have to think about you.
This unbearable weather has me a little irritable, but luckily, creating a cute little market stall distracted me long enough to change my attitude.
What better way to cool off than with a nice, tall glass of lemonade! Maybe have a lemon tart or two?
I love, love all of the niche shrines. They are quick and super fun to make. Each new one instantly turns into my favorite, but this little Cabana House Niche Shrine with the Market Stall Niche Add-On? Be still my heart! And it is super tiny; an amazing 5 1/2" tall and 3" wide! The House Ornament Base that the market stall sits on is 4 1/2" square and couldn't have worked out more perfectly for the extra minis I added around the stall.
I did add a top to the counter of the Add-On (more on that later) because I wanted a wee bit more space for the fancy Tiny Doilies - White - Set of 4, two plates of sweets, a glass of lemonade, a bowl of lemons, a few tiny jars of lemon curd, and, wait...is that it? There's more room up there!
The cakes started out as Tiny Resin Cookie Cabochons that I dipped in Winter Snow Glitter Mix before adding half a slice of lemon and half of a Tiny Iridescent Four Leaf Clover Glitter to the top. I also repainted several cakes from the Tiny Resin Cakes Cabochon Mix to fit in with the lemon theme.
