framed things and charms too...

she likes to collect pine cones, so naturally, we have them all over the house. my favorite are the smaller ones, conical, not bent over and closed with still a stem. the other day she gave me yet another one like it and I have a sweet little sheer ivory ribbon and tied it around the stem. at first it went onto ginny's rear view mirror but alas, i knew she would want to wear it and so she still is now. she had given me an idea so i went to michael's to have a look around. i found a few sweet charms, and just one, round and simply elaborate charm with a illustration of a vintage owl in it! i love it and now it has been strung into a little velvety brown ribbon.

i also recieved some beautiful frames provided by little bird vintage that came along with the curio with my tiny buttons in it. i deciced to fill them with original illustrations and put them in the shop. i have more information about them on my littlebighead.


it is so much fun creating, making things, crafting. it has such a wonder of fulfillment and excitement. i have more ribbon and more charms. i just have to get the ideas rolling, and we will see what happens...

I just saw the frames on your Etsy, they are darling !!!

(unfortunately I can't see the charm : I don't know why but I have a trouble with Blogspot : sometimes I can't see the piccies ... It happens like once every three or five pics ...)
