My first item is an old oriental style tin from Holland (don't ask me how that happened). I got it I guess about 7 or 8 years ago at my favorite antique/junk store in downtown Lynchburg. It holds earrings, rings, charms...that sort of thing. I have it setting on a pile of books on a shelf by my bed.
The next item is an old (1950's) wide-eyed fawn. My grandma gave me the pair (yes, it has a twin, but only one is setting out) back before Christmas. She's the knick knack queen, and lately she's been saying that if we see anything we want, tell her so she can give it to us. I told her a while back that if she ever wanted to get rid of that set of fawns, they'd have a good home with me. I was so happy I got them, and I know they are truly old because she said they've been around for one hundred years (she's also the exaggeration queen). They sit on another stack of books by my bed. I have lots of book stacks around my house (maybe I'll count them one day). I just love reading! If you want to join, you can link up on Kassi's blog.
And how funny is this...my aunt mentioned me on her blog and referred to me as a "fashionista!" Haha, she's sweet, but I'm just a mess that took a while to put together, certainly not in the know fashion-wise! Well, it was sweet, and it made me laugh!Also, because I'm not just in love with myself and my own creations, and because I know a lot of you lovely readers are pretty crafty yourself, I'd like to include some of your projects in my weekly "what I've been working on" posts. Just send me a picture (or more than one) and description to firstname.lastname@example.org so I can include you! If you're not ready to join this week, that's okay, I do the post every week!
