Look what I got & progress on Easter table

I don't know the English word for this kind of cupboard, in which one can display small items, but isn't it a beauty? I thought it was a bit too expensive, but when my husband saw that I had a hard time putting it back on the shelf, he bought it for me :-). It was totally white: I've put pieces of scrapbookpaper in it.

I've been busy on the Easter table for the bell jar.
I thought it would be nice to have breakfast outside, so I've put grass on the floor. Then I made the table. I displayed it here with some tableware. It was good to try that out, as I had many plans (coffee, easter-bread, easter chocolate thingies, etc), not realizing how limited the space is. I need to choose what the miniature people may eat/drink on Easter-morning!
The legs of the table are made of metal strips, with an ornament glued on them. Between the legs is a wooden bar, screwed on the ornaments with amazing tiny screws, just like in the real world. I glued the table cloth on the table to make it hang. Even though the fabric is thin, it won't hang on itselve.
To be continued...

Marit, your Easter table is amazing!

Your new heart shaped 'shadow box' (the only English expression I know to describe this kind of tiny shelf unit) is sooo sweet - and a really romantic kind of a gift. It's nice I think to have a place to display all the lovely little things we collect but don't have a 'home' for right away.

Love the table, as always I'm jealous of your ability with metal :)

De Paastafel vind ik leuk, maar het hart is geweldig leuk. Wat leuk van je man om het voor je te kopen...

Wat een schattig kastje en leuk om zo je mooiste spulletjes 'aan de muur' te hebben. Ik vind je stolp zo mooi worden, wat een origineel idee!

Marit dear, forgive me, in this period are burdened with commitments and I just now time to write reviews, but I can not resist the congrat you for the wonderful atmosphere you are creating under the bell jar :-)
A desire for a trip outside the city :-)
I love the table, but you're capable of this and more ...
In Italian, the shelf is called "bulletin board": as a child I had a very large, shaped ... house for dolls!
My fate was sealed :-)
Mini hugs, Flora

*** de draak past inderdaad onder een stolp, die heb ik wel ergens, maar waar...;), mmm de curcussen rond Utrecht, weet ik niet zo één twee, drie, zeker niet voor langere periode.Kan het wel eens in de groep gooien.Ik zelf heb geen enkele cursus gevolgd, alles komt uit het bolletje en hoofd.***
