Repurposed sugar bowl

A friend found a tarnished 38 year old sugar bowl in her cupboard.  Decided to give it a clean and a buff and repurpose.

We headed to Bella Paperie at Brendale with the sugar bowl and once we briefed Deb on our requirements, she produced some beaded fringing and velvet flowers in the 'perfect' colours. To add a little whimsy, we decided to add a little bird next (mounted on some antique lace) on the spoon

Full view not long after completion

Hard to see in this photo, but the beads
reflect beautifully with the silver background

PS:  I would love to have it on my shelf, but at least I will get to 'visit'
