The past couple weeks have seen a lot of cutting and sewing as well as fabric purchases. With company coming, I figured I better clean this mess up and do some organizing. I did my usual as everything has its place around here, but I wanted to redo my "jelly cupboard". If you lived pretty much anywhere in New England 20-30 years ago, I would bet you had some of that VERY dark Yield House pine furniture. You may have even had a jelly cupboard as they were pretty popular at the time. I always found this piece of furniture quite functional and it has been in bedrooms, bathrooms, kitchens and basements. When we moved here it went to the basement as I was frankly finding that dark pine a bit embarassing. I missed my jelly cupboard. So when we built my studio, I redid it in a favorite green color with the cream inside, the better to show off its innards.
