MORE pickling !!!! And a fun pic of my little girl...

I did not have as much time  as I would have liked today, but I still managed to fill some more pots and to finish some others

The onions got labels. Anyone with more than my two brain cells would have hit upon label making in Word loooong ago... well, I did so, finally, today.

The cherries were labelled and got little covers (brrrr fiddly)

The bottles had dried and look nice, I think. They are solid acrylic, painted with glasspaint.

And I filled some marmelade jars, chopped orange canes by Angie Scarr, colored scenic water. The color is a bit VERY orange, I am afraid :-) and at least two of the pots are going to burst- bubbles are developing! There will soon a marmelade-bomb exploding in the Kendrew house,I think :-)

and while I was at the computer yesterday a little girl was playing acrobatics next to me:


  1. ...and I just wonder, or even hope that this wasn´t only your cat´s warm-up for the Christmas-tree!
    Happy 2012!

  2. Mooi hoor, wat een priegelwerkje lijkt me dat alles netjes in die potjes te krijgen. Ik hoop dat je een fijne kerst hebt gehad.Ik wens jou en iedereen waarvan je houd een heel fijn en gezond 2012met veel knutselplezier en liefde.
    p.s. en natuurlijk veel poezenacrobatiek...haha mooi scrabbelwoord

  3. I love all these pickles and jars you make. You inspire and tempt me to make some 1:1 pickles but it's the thought of using so much salt that holds me back.
    Your cat is so cute!
    Happy 2012 and a hug

  4. Thank you all!
    Drora, I don't even dream of RL pickling - either loads of salt/vinegar or loads of sugar. In miniature, it is fun, though!

  5. Que precioso gatito.
    Me encantan los botes que estas haciendo, son de lo mas real.

  11. Elly, what patience you have! And creativity too, to think of all those details to fill them. The jars look great on the rack. It is so much fun to see the kitty antics too - life will never be boring with her around.
