I rarely post so called selfies on here but today calls for one.
I love my three mermaid wigs but I rarely use them so today I
decided to cut bangs on one of them and I love how it turned
out! (Here's a before pic.)
It was quite tricky and it isn't perfect but for what scissors and
little patience I got nowadays it as good as it gets. LOL!
I feel like a mermaid Bettie or something. :D



I'm sorry for putting a minimal effort into this blog lately,
I would like to change that.

Since the weekend is here and the weather might be dull
here and there I though I make an inspirational post.

I'm gonna show you what you can do with cup post studs
and some bits that's not flat on the back.
Like these vintage buttons and broken hair elastic.
I usually sand things down with one of those 4 stage nail
files/buffer but it didn't work on these cherry buttons, I cut
off the "loop" as close as I possibly could and then trying
to sand the remaining bit off but they were a bit too fragile
and that's when the cup posts works a treat.



This old hair elastic doesn't have a flat back and I didn't want
to even try to cut the back off since it probably would damage
the whole flower.
Cup post to the rescue.



I got mine from eBay, dirt cheap.
I haven't used them for more than a handful of projects but
it's something that's handy to have in the craft supply box.

Hope you all have a lovely weekend.

Hi there!
It's been a while!
I've been in Sweden and Holland for almost a month.
I dread to make a post about my finds over there but
I will however post about yesterdays finds from a local
car boot sale.

Straw bag, 20 pence. (approx. $0.30)
This bag need a bit of TLC, I need to glue the straw on the handle 
into place and the grapes are scruffy, I might seal them with some 
decoupage glue.
I've been pining over this bag for a while and for 20 pence I don't 
mind that it's not in mint condition.

Bakelite bangle, 35 pence (approx. $0.55)
I'm not in a rush to make my collection bigger and I'm not spending 
a lot of money on Bakelite so when I find them cheap it's even more 
of a thrill.

Lot of Bakelite and celluloid buttons and buckles, £5.80.
(approx. $9)
The shapes and designs are amazing.
I want to make OTT rings out of the huge black buttons.

1940's/1950's hair remover, 20 pence. (approx. $0.30)
I'm NOT going to use this but the package is just so darling.

Faux fur jacket, £3. (approx. $4.70)
This jacket is absolutely stunning in real life.
As much as I hate cold weather I do look forward to be stylish 
this autumn and winter.

1950's jewelry, £1.50 for the lot. (approx. $2.35)
I just couldn't resist that little teak fish!
