You might wonder what smoking has to do with this sweet hat stand.
Well, it was once a floor ashtray, albeit, a fancy one with the marble and brass.
Still, it was an ashtray.
I was able to invert the original ashtray "bowl" (after cleaning thoroughly of course)
And covered it with a sweet Victorian lace doily with under padding.
It stands about 24" tall so is a beautiful statement to that favorite hat of yours. And then there's the crosses.
I mentioned them in a previous post and
Had several questions regarding them.
Because I am making about 15 of them and
Will grout them all at once, using a dark colored grout.
I thought I would go ahead and show the design of the cross
Since it might be a while until they are totally completed.
They, too, are quite substantial measuring 22" tall.
Thanks for stopping by today....
You know I love it when you come.
