Upcycled Display Stand

DSCN3548I am still mourning the loss of the tip shop. (If anyone is interested in the tender to the Broken Hill Tip Shop, please contact the Council.  At least two of us are suffering severe scavenging withdrawal symptoms!)  I’m having to rely on my stash which shows the wisdom of having a stash doesn’t it?  Inspired by my daughter who blogs about creative storage and organisation (and occasionally about incredibly cute goldenDSCN3555 labrador puppies and aren’t we all excited!!??) and by the amazing Marlene Brady who has excelled herself with her revolving jewellery stand here, I decided (read: was driven by necessity) to work something out for displaying the Samunnat ladies’ shisha bracelets.

It is nowhere near as magnificent as Marlene’s, but it does make use of tip finds , rolls from paper towels and my beloved lokta paper-the Nepali paper made from daphne bark.  I have three of these stands now and a very unattractive metal mug holder that also serves as a shisha display stand.  My life has been somewhat dominated by plaster and papier mache of late but progress is being made.  I am having to accept that I won’t get all I wanted donw before I leave but in the spirit of enough, I am happy enough with what is happening!

More soon.
