Tomorrow's the last day to enter my giveaway celebrating my 2 year Blogaversary and 500 posts! Details here.
After some Christmas shopping, decorating, and cleaning this week, I needed a day to rest. So I spent some time yesterday crafting:
Linda Sue's generosity; the fabric is vintage Waverly, and everything else is old, too!
A while back I bought a necklace made from an old watch case at A Paris Street Market; I loved the case and the beading, but after a while I decided I didn't love the insides, so I changed them:
Barbara might recognize her ATC paper is the background, on top of which I added vintage millinery flowers, a tidbit of lace, some of the original gold leaves that came with the piece, and a unique little figurine. The little lady made of porcelain is something I picked up at an antique fair recently; the seller told me the figurines were made to be put into Mardi Gras (King) cakes. I just loved the look of her! I tied it off with a piece of red and white "42" ribbon I got from my Silver Bella trim swap.
Speaking of jewelry, last night I had a chance to sit down and shorten the bracelet I made at Silver Bella in the Josephine's Jewels class; it made me itch to get to work on the kit to make the matching necklace, so I slipped my husband a hint about how nice it would be to have a set of three jewelry-making pliers.
This past summer I picked up this little old letterpress stamp with Christmas bells, and now I simply tied antique tartan ribbon around it to make a cute holiday decoration!
Your turn: tell me what you've been creating (if it's not a secret!)
