I just got my next assignment for Make Per Month, the art trade I mentioned in this post. I put my previous (kind of crazy and somewhat bedazzled) plan on the back burner because it didn’t seem to fit the girl I am making for. After some thought, I have an idea that I’m excited about that draws visual cues from antique Eastern European furniture.

I used to work in a boutique owned by one of the foremost collectors of this furniture (including the piece above), and had the opportunity to admire it every day.  Since I’ve been a little folk art inspired already lately, it seems like a good match. I’m going to try to pick up this book at the library for some stunning reference.
