A real wonder if I ever saw one. A little apple & banana stand made from a cheese box.  Covered with the smallest beads and bits including mini books which you can read.

-  It came in a package with another surprise.  I spend most of last night just looking at it.

Will you look at all the detail that went into this piece.  The rose and two small hearts done in red & white checker tablecloth is my favourite.  I just found out today that a red & white checker tablecloth in French is called a Vichy tablecoth "nappe Vichy" .

As a family tradition, Mail Art is opened at dessert of the evening meal.  Also in this package was this wonderful place mat which I have now adopted as my official dessert place mat.  A real inspiring and motivational tool.  And reminds me of whom I really am …

-- As you can see, I have given up Choclate Mousse, Crème brûlée, Tarte Tartin, Chocolat Eclairs & Banana Splits for dessert.  A half of grapefruit is now my dessert.  My present body is on loan, and I'm trying to refund the payments as soon as I can.

Here it is in all it's glory.  And you can also find it in a special place: http://iuoma-network.ning.com/profiles/blogs/bucket-from-erni-bar?x...

Thank you very very much Janine.

This is amazing. So much detail. I'm trying to figure out the actual size which I think isn't very big based the on grapefruit on the mat. Oooh, lucky you.
