 I recently had the wonderful pleasure of winning a spot in a class, ALTERED DOMINO BOOK, over at Creative Workshops taught by Terri Heinz!  Terri has done such a wonderful job with this class, covering every detail , and she is so wonderful to watch on video, it really is a great class! I always wanted to try this, and now I know I will be doing more, because this was really a lot of fun, and I am pretty happy with the result!  Terri also has a great blog, called Artful you can visit her there and see all the other really creative things she does, she is so multitalented!

 Here is the side of the book with a crystal briolette I attached, and a vintage MOP bird I had saved in my stash for a loooong time!

Here is the back of the book. I messed up a bit, the color bled, and I am not sure why. I think I put the glaze on too soon before the sealer had dried. I still like it, and so I learned!

 In side of the book

 I will say it was a tedious project for me with my shaky fingers these days, but I got such a wonderful satisfaction from doing this! Now, what will my next theme be?

Thank you as always for visiting...I truly appreciate it, and I wish you a marvelous week!

 I have added a new romantic listing in my shop tonight. I sometimes hoard many vintage pieces for a long long time, so I decided to part with some, and made a necklace that was calling to me for a while. I was just in the know how that is!

Here is wishing everyone a beautiful new week,
and thanks for visiting me, it means so much.

 Since working on the prayer flag project, I am so obsessed with textiles, so I used some beautiful sari silk I had to make these earrings.   I just love the look of hard and soft together, metal and silk, vintage and bling.

And old buttons won't let me rest either.

Thanks for looking, and I wish you all a wonderful week!

 There is nothing that makes my soul sing like some great finds at the flea market....well, just going makes me all tingly! I know, I am weird, but I have one lady I see all the time, for years, and I could find things in her place for years and years to come! What do you think I will do with these vintage handkerchiefs, slips, and vintage buttons? I have many ideas a brewin!

 Wish you all a great weekend ahead, and thanks for visiting, and all the new followers, I appreciate that so much!

Sneak peeks of prayer flags for a swap with my good friend Lenna Young Andrews.   Lenna has a fabulous blog dedicated to, and her personal blog ...here Both are wonderful to say the least! I soooo enjoyed doing this, an opportunity for me to use some of my vintage buttons and bits and pieces of lace, some new, some vintage,  and various fabrics that I adore for their texture and color ! There is something about fabric that makes my soul sing....

Three days and headache free....yay!!  So, I got a chance to make some jewelry. I have been loving these patterned beads I bought....they add a bit of texture, mystery and character. They conjure up stories in my head, but I will leave the interpretation up to you! 
 I have enjoyed my holiday weekend immensely, hope you have too.
Thanks for looking, and I wish you a great week!
