Summer break is here!

 Today was my first day of summer break. It's strange around here without Angel. I miss her and so do the other pets. I kept busy with household chores, some work for the church, and a bit of play time. Today I added the welcome sign on the door and the bulletin board by the counter. The bulletin board has notices on items customers are looking for, job wanted notices, and lost pet posters. There's even a tiny "what to do" list so the shop owner doesn't lose it. ;)
 I also made this mirror and console set. I embossed thin craft metal in copper and then added verdigris to it. The mirror was made from mirrored poster board with smudges of black paint to make the mirror look old. There's a stacked button "vase" on the console shelf. I am very happy with the results of this project!
Here's the whole corner in one photo. Progress, slow but sure.
