birthday card for esme

a pigeon

gifts for esme

for esme's birthday i made these...

bought a matching pair of old side tables with some interesting detailing carved into the legs and table top surround. painted them a colour that would give the original designer a heart attack. stuck some coasters down though leaving some of the gold detailing that appears on the leather top on show [my original plan was to cover the whole top with coasters then grout between them but i decided against that idea when i saw these tables]....

a simple idea. however, many of my grand plans never seem to materialise, i'm glad this did.
