Hi to you all,
this is an amazing website and I am glad I found it, for the crafting websites here in Germany are just toooo cute for my taste.
My favourite pastime is Decoupage and here there are especially innocent little pieces of furniture which don't stand a chance against me.

Please excuse my mistakes in translation.

Looks great! It also looks like you linked with an ftp link instead of a hyperlink. [It's the button with the world with the little piece of paper in front of it, three in from the left on the bottom] So, here you go:

Thank you! How did you did that? Anyway, perhaps I should have read the FAQ properly. Hopefully it will work this time, although Flickr just told me, they are having a hiccup.

Here's the "code view" of how I made the text link instead of the actual address. Flickr is hiccuping but I was able to get through to see the photos before. Keep trying folks, it's stunning!

It's just beautiful work. Totally transformed the piece.

Decoupage is wonderful, isn't it? Once you get into it, it's as if it opens up a whole world of potential projects.

WOW! I got into the pictures. A really beautiful job. I love seeing plain ordinary pieces transformed by decoupage. I picked up an old copy of the book "Manning on Decoupage" written by a society mother/son team in 1969 that is full of beautiful classic pieces like this. Your piece rocks!!!
