I had a really creative day yesterday.
I ordered some craft bits for a future project that I really
can't wait to start working on.
I also made two fascinator hats, some hair flowers for me
and revamped some old junk that has been laying around
for too long.
Like this thing...
It used to be a candle garland or whatever you call these
things. This one is from the 50's/60's, back then plastic
was very popular, nowadays is all silk flowers. Yuk!
Anyway, this one was the only one of it's kind and not in
a very good state as you can see here.
So I cut a bit off and then I stitched a pin onto the back
and got myself a unique and rather lovely brooch.
This was actually a 1950's bracelet my man gave me
four years ago. It was way too big for me and it's been
collecting dust ever since.
So I attached a thin chain and a clasp and hey presto,
I got myself a necklace.
And here's the fascinator hats...
And these arrived with the snail mail...
eBay find, celluloid type bangles, all four for 99 pence.
They kind of reminds me of Dita's bangles in this ad:
