I've missed you SO!!!!
We had a wonderful Fourth of July weekend and
really enjoyed being with each of our families ~
I've been a missing in action I know, but am finally getting back in the saddle
you know I love my blog here and love you as well ~
This is a scan of the sweet little tin type that Lisa gifted me after
the Paper Cowgirl retreat....I knew you would love to have it too!
I've had this pale, aged, pink satin purse for awhile now...
and even tried to sell it all by it's lonesome but to no avail.
So I thought...why not alter it and turn it into a Flea Bag!
You know, a bag you can throw over your shoulder, not too heavy but
holds the necessities when you are at an antique flea market?
Money, lipstick, etc?
Here are the beginning stages:
I'm adding wonderful antique lace and trims.
I don't know if you can see how really pale the pink is ~ it's almost an ecru now!
I wanted to make both sides beautiful ~
Here's one side:
And the other:
NOW. To add a comfortable strap and plenty of embellishments!!!
Antique buttons....maybe a few seam binding bundles....what about a clock face???
I'm in the home stretch now!!!
OH! And look what my husband found for me one day....
ANOTHER TREASURE BOX!!!
Now if I can only make it as sweet as the first one :)
Here are the finished pics from my first treasure box:
I have to share with you this beautiful photo of Clara....
Brent, Emily and Clara traveled to mountains of West Virginia to
Emily's grandmother's cabin for the fourth ~
look at this angel enjoying herself and picking flowers for her mama!!!
I hope you have a wonderful Wednesday my sweet friends!!!!
hugs and love,
