Herbology Room in Progress

Herbology Room in Progress

Sunday, October 12, 2014

I love this crazy, flawed, one legged doll.  She was part of a lot eBay.  She was crammed down in the corner of a box, looking up at me with her big wide eyes when I found her there.

She has been sitting in the Judge & Gibbet attic for years along with other pieces that have no place.  But during a recent trip to Seattle, it hit me.  This fine little lady would make a wonderful fortune teller in a box!  Instead of working on a room this winter, I am going to devote my time to making a wonderful cabinet for her along with a slot for coins and a place for the fortune to come out.  I know it will not be the same, (and I would not want it to) but below is an example of what I am going for.

She will be a perfect addition to the bar when she is finished.  Maybe she will inspire me to actually get to work on that room!

I think I will start with 3- windowed doors and a solid back and see what I can do.  Wish me luck!


  1. Hello Gayle,
    Good luck with the project. I know you can do it and do it well.
    Big hug,

  2. Giac, my work is like a chocolate chip cookie when compared to yours which is like a perfect souffle. Every time I look at your photos, I am breathless. Thank you for always being so kind.

  3. Hi Gayle,

    Good luck! I made a fortune teller's room last year. It's on Etsy now. But I am so curious to see how your project will come along. I admire your work greatly.
