Last week, I was still immersed in making ornaments.
Beth and I had gone to a flea market where I found a bag of little doll shoes, and have been busy turning them into pretties to hang on the tree.
At the flea, we were drawn to a box of buttons, and after we'd each found a handful, we thought it was funny to see how different our picks were. Bright, bakelite for Beth, and sparkling blinginess for me. Beth said we should take a photo, and the jostling of bundled purchases, coats, and scarves while digging of the cameras out of pockets while not messing up our selections was pretty entertaining.
Afterward, I thought, now, why didn't I just set the buttons down, get out the phone, and then re-arrange the buttons? Well, that would have made it just too easy, I guess.
It wasn't the best flea market I've ever been to, but it was a lot of laughs. And I was glad to get a bag filled with a dozen little shoes.
They have been addictive, I made up quite a few of them. Some to keep, some to sell, some to give as gifts.
I'll save one for Sugarwings to make with me too. She is always looking for a new crafting adventure, and I think she'll enjoy redesigning a little shoe.
I've listed a few of these in the Boutique.
And there are a few new creations in the etsy shop too. (and kits to make your own)
As well as these funny, little angel earrings, which I didn't make. They are vintage clip ons.
I will be away from my computer till Monday, we are off to see the Guncles in Florida. All packages will be mailed when I get back. Thanks for your patience.
I'll leave you with some photos of what is new in the Boutique.
