When I received some unexpected goodies with my swap with Linda at Itsy Bits and Pieces,
I decided to put stuff to use right away rather than rat-holing an ever burgeoning stash of treasures.
The best way for me to approach this endeavor was to go into a bit of a production mode.
Yesterday I set about collage-ing the various vintage bingo cards cards that she gave me along with some little scrapbooking images that another friend had surprised me with. Along with some images that I had been collecting I put together some simple collages.
She gave me several large buttons to play with.
I came up with some simple shabby style silk sari ribbon necklaces
with vintage keys and a bauble or two.
I may even revamp my Etsy shop and hope to get a shopping cart up here and on my website as well as facebook.
I'll be ready for the summer season coming up at least!
I'm not so sure about this one as far as durability goes since it has a plastic hasp
( vintage plastic) and the headpin is a little wobbly.
I wanted to post it though since I like the picture.
So yes you could say I've been busy!
Meanwhile any of these are for sale.
