I was at a local antique store Monday and take a look at what I found!
Aren’t they lovely? Hand done, on black velvet embellished with beads and sequins sandwiched around a hat pin. They may or may not be stuffed, I think they are, but only slightly and the stuffing was either very stiff to begin with or has hardened with age. I fell in love these the moment I saw them and I knew at least one would be coming home with me, luckily the asking price was very reasonable and I was able to keep them together.
I think as soon as I can find some scrap velvet I’ll try my hand at making a couple myself.
Also, I appear to be 3 subscribers/followers (I keep track in Google Reader) from 200. When it hits 200 I’ll have a giveaway. Not sure what it’ll be yet, will most likely depend on my mood that day & the prize may even end up tailored to whoever wins (I’ll hold a random drawing) – we’ll see what happens.
