Some thrift store finds.

I have been collecting a few things here and there from thrift stores and yard sells and so on. Here is a black pouch purse. It already had the bead dangles. I want to add something on the front and then hang in my room. I will post a picture when I get it done.

I have seen some ladies on YouTube alter a box and then add a small mini or a very large mini in the inside. Here is a link to one of the video. I want to give this a go and add photos of my grand babies.

Here is the inside. It is a very large box.

I ran into the thrift store to see if they had gotten anything new since I had stopped there yesterday. And look what I found. A really pretty dress form.

And only for $4.99.

Some handmade flowers

Made these using my creative memories circle cutters and some decorative scissors. The smaller ones and the centers to the larger flowers are using different flower punches.

Made with ribbon and material.

Made with different kinds of ribbon. The lollipop flowers are made with organza material.

More wire edged ribbon and regular ribbon.

These are done with edge stuffing, material and lace.

The brown flower is cut from a pine cone and the white one is done using feathers and a vintage style ear ring.
