Hello dear hearts..
Here we are on another Monday..
How fast the month of January is passing by..
Here in Eastern Canada we are having what we refer to as a January thaw..
The temps are very mild and it rained and the wind roared all night long..
This morning the snow seems to have disappeared.. Not to worry, though, it will be back.. smile..
This afternoon Terry and I packed a wee treat, bought a couple of coffees and along with my trusty camera we took a little rural tour..
I love driving in the rain and wind..
The brooks and rivers were very full and the hollows were full of fog..
I will share those pics with you next time..
Thanks to inspiration from Shonda's rings I attempted these..
I will show you a simple way to make little vintage napkin rings..
This is all you need.
4 napkin rings..(or however many you want)
I had these but you could sew them up in a heartbeat..
Or buy wood or plastic ones at a thrift shop..
Some old jewellery pieces and buttons.. (thrift stores)
I collected this stuff for several years when I did Victorian crafts several years ago..
ribbon and lace
wire to tie bows with
tweezers to place jewellery under other pieces..
glue gun and glue..
I have a little cache of country style pins from years ago like the little angel head there..
I think Terry gave me that about 10 years ago..
I used my snipers and snipped the pin back off..
Made a bow from some old ribbon and glued it on first and then the angel head..
Took some green rhinestones off an old necklace and glued them around ...
This was another old broach..
Took the back off and then used a piece of vintage lace tied in a knot.. Glued it in place and covered it with the broach..
Then just added some pieces from other necklaces and such..
This was a piece of an old bracelet..
Ribbon and other pieces all glued about..
Same thing here except I glued some rhinestones around the old broach...
So, my friends you just need to use your imagination..
Send me some pics if you make them..
These are kind of pink to go with my china..
That is the name of my china..
I am still working on my bed runner..
It is a bit more work then I thought.. smile..
I think this is going to be a busy week..
I am trying to do a pantry challenge which I am thinking needs to get done next...
And I am expecting some dear old friends for lunch one day this week .. smile..
Take care my friends..
