I put my Flickr photo on last night. I hope to add lots more pictures for you all to enjoy
For this post, I thought I'd share some of my hat pins with you and other pretties at the bottom of the post. These are just an assortment of the black hat pins. Some are wood, some are stones with rhinestones and some sequins.
A little look at my hat pin holders. The one in front (better picture later) I got from a lady in Cape May who handpainted these and other lovelies. I'm not a rose painter, but I've always admired her work. she did the sweetest little business card holders as well.
Love those old shakers for the pins! Aren't they gorgeous! They look so pretty with the tall hat pin holder.
I've not always loved it, but Amber seems to be one of my new favorite colors. Maybe it's fall approaching?? But I love the depth of the color...
Amythest and pink glass. Love those 2 shades. They're so romantic and girly....
This is my first box creation. I worked with old wallpaper (which can be challenging). Don't look too closely as you'll see my mistakes. But, for a first attempt, I'm happy with the way it looks. A spray of ribbon roses on the left and a cluster of vintage buttons. Loved the little girl in the Acme Soap ad with her apron full of posies... Dark haired girls always remind me of my lovely daughter, Heather.
I put a little velvet ribbon inside to cover up the seams and used tiny pink rhinestone buttons in the corners. I had some difficulty deciding what to do with the inside lid. But, all-in-all, I am happy with the results.
Now these beautiful things I bought from Rhea. You all might remember her "Cherish" box that she sold a while back. I snatched it up quite quickly! Love it. Here's the contents. Lovely tags and Christmas tags and a hand painted shell and button and a little hankie. Oh, don't forget that sweet ballerina!
Don't ya just love this little girl on the box! She's just so sweet! Rhea is so talented! Love her stuff!
I loved the box contents so much I asked Rhea to paint me some shells and buttons. Originally I thought of them as gifts, but can I part with them? Oh, I don't know!?!?
Well, that's my post for today ladies. Hope you like the pictures. It's always nice to look at lovely things to inspire and just to take the blood pressure down a notch! Have a wonderful day!
