Spaceships and little green men? Nope. I'm talking about those Un-Finished Objects. Do you have any of those? I love to create and make things. Ideas come from everywhere, blogland is especially dangerous territory for this!! I have so many different projects going ALL the time...and AT THE SAME TIME! Some get finished, some get set aside for "later". Some just didn't turn out and get rejected.
I like to get things DONE. So, why do I have such a large collection of UFO's? That is a mystery.
This pink "purse" (or what may end up being a purse eventually) is my latest example. It was inspired by a purse that someone else made, and hers was Darling!! So, I bought the fabric, got some vague instructions, got home and put it in the "later" pile. Almost a YEAR later, I decided to jump in and give it a try. I loved making it, the "tags" were my favorite part, so of course, I put too many on it. I pulled through mostly Pink ones, making it more of a pink purse. Then I ran out of fabric....guess it's finished!! I can't find fabric for the lining. Etc Etc.
It's in the later pile. Haven't given up exactly...just put it off til later.
Are you looking for a fun way to spend your Saturday?? Take the Pink Tour! Go to Beverly's and get the scoop on .....
Go get a cup of lovely tea and come back for some "Eye Candy".
Yesterday I went over to my new friend Lori's house. She is a wonderful Jewelry Artist among many other interests, sewing, knitting, embroidery...JUST to name a few. I took some great pictures of her studio, BUT I am not going to show them.....because I completely missed taking pictures of her creations!! I will just HAVE to go back (he he) and take some more photos! We have already decided that we need a "crafting" day to make something wonderful together.
The "Eye Candy" is Lori's collection of jewelry. I was in HEAVEN!
And, you will be too! Lori inherited a vast array of jewelry from vintage to anique.
Sit back and enjoy the BLING.
Help us out.
What is this?
We couldn't figure it out. They seem to hook together somehow. And, each one has an end that something could be looped through.
Maybe you loop a fabric belt through and this is the focal piece? If you know, please leave a comment and satisfy our curiosity!
I am a huge fan of these pins and this one is very special. Lori didn't know what the 2 crystal pieces are, but I am very certain that they are shoe pins, can't you just imagine them on a pair of dressy pumps?
It was just one treasure box after another. I love all the PINK here. That bracelet is adorable!
It's a collection that took a lifetime to build. Look at those little green ball & flower earrings. We think that they look 60's. Maybe paired with a short shift dress and "go-go" boots?? And, of course a pouffy hairdo and false eyelashes!!
This was the case that held most of it. I just love these older cases. Don't you?
I promise to take you on the tour of Lori's fabulous jewelry creations, you will be soooo impressed! Watch for it! Thanks for the visit Lori, I had a TERRIFIC time!
Miss Kool Aid
