The Victorian Kitchen

One of my Christmas presents was a lovely new storage unit for my craft stuff, and in the process of sorting through my stash to rearrange it on the unit, I found these NBUS Victorian Kitchen papers and stickers from Craft Creations. The large background is actually reproduced from recipe books of the time and the smaller one has pictures very similar to the illustrations in Mrs Beeton.

I've added other long-forgotten elements from my stash - some adhesive cork tape, a doiley, screw headed brads and the last scrap of a spool of lace - plus stamped images using the Sheena Douglass Home Life stamps, stamped in brown and with inked edges to give them a vintage look.

I would like to share this with
