~~Starry Starry White~~

I've discovered some natural batting that I love working with. My favorite color anyway has always been white (and yes I know, it's not really a color!) and winter white for Christmas is something I can't get enough of.  These stars have been selling in my Etsy shop, and I plan on taking some to the holiday shows I am doing. I thought they would look great either filling a silver basket, hanging from a cabinet knob,  part of the wrapping of a special gift, or of course hanging from a tree.

~~Wine Anyone?~

Some fabric wine bags I have been working on lately.... the last style is courtesy of the most amazing shop I discovered at Etsy recently, RedStripeVintage.  She packages up her goods in a pretty white linen bag, which I turned into a wine bag.  Visit her shop for lucsious rhinestone buttons, old laces and trims and buttons and baubles!  And my wine gift bags are available at my Etsy shop

~~Vintage Charm~~

Years ago I dabbled (quite a bit) in jewelry making. Especially altered jewelry, made from unusual finds, vintage trinkets and interesting aged objects.  Then when everyone and their sister learned how to assemble jewelry, I tired of it and went on to mixed media and collage (hmmm, come to think of it, my mixed media is made of unusual finds, vintage trinkets and interesting aged objects, too!).  Occasionally I still like to dabble a bit, especially if the jewelry is made of old tintypes, sparkley rhinestones and buttons.  Here are a few new "old" pieces I put together for my Etsy shop, and for some local shows I am doing this month.
