Red Spotted Toadstool

The fantastic craftylittlemonkey over on was very kind and very generous, and sent me a fantastic package of goodies which included a glorious bell jar with a wooden base.

I decided to make a red spotted toadstool to go inside. It looked awfully lonely in there so I built a ladder. Then I thought there needed to be a reason for the ladder and toyed with the idea of putting a telescope and star chart on top but space was pretty tight up there. So my husband said "Why not make a wee paintbrush and bucket of paint? After all, how else do you think those toadstools are such vibrant colours."

And so, believe it or not, I listened to my husband. Shock of shocks!
