Projects and Coming Attractions!

I have been having fun working on some new projects the last few days! I posted about these photo holders before, but have been trying to find new & different things to use. I love this little bitty doorknob!...and this little guy in his cowboy "chaps"!! I found a good sized pile of vintage photos at a sale a week or so ago and have been enthralled with digging through them--they are so much fun!!Some of my completed holders.

Using some old silver from my friend Joann's sale to make wind chimes!

These keys make a nice tinkling sound!

As you know~I LOVE pincushions! So I like to make them with anything I can find!

Especially old sugar bowls~in china...

and aged silver! I found some crazy quilt pieces at the flea market in May and they work perfectly for these!!

NOW....for the BIG news!! I am 2 posts away from my 100th post, and I will be having a giveaway!!!!!

I will be including this lovely vintage post card!

Also one of my photo holders and lots of other goodies which I will be packing inside this vintage cracker tin!!!!

Everyday I keep adding to the pile~something for everyone!!! SO, I know you won't be disappointed!!

Stay tuned!*!*!*!*!
