Thanks to a really great no sew tip from Natasha - I've been able to drastically improve my crepe paper ruffles! I decided to practice a bit this weekend with the above projects. The top photo is a tag I made for a christening we attended today. Our good friends have twin babies that are just adorable. The middle photo is a tag I made to go with the Florida collage I will be giving my friend tomorrow. I decided to add some glitter after I took this shot. The bottom is a little box I made for a friend.
I hit one estate sale this weekend and picked up the above lace valances for $5. They now grace our spare bedroom. The amazing thing is - my husband actually loves them! He surprised me with his enthusiasm. I wasn't sure how lace was going to go over.
This is some vintage jewelry I picked up as well. The woman who sold it to me said she has a lot more and that I should stop by her house sometime to see more. I'll take her up on this offer! She is a local woman well known in the community. I wouldn't go into random people's homes! I had to laugh because she made a big point of saying that she lives alone and doesn't invite strangers over but she can tell that I have class. I was wearing my new Sis Boom top, maybe that had something to do with it! :)
My sister and I took some time to see my cousin pitch for his baseball team. He scored two runs as well. He just turned 14. It seems like yesterday he wanted me to carry him all around and would cling to my side. Sigh... I think I'm nostalgic now, I can't imagine what it would be like to have children of my own. Happy beginning of the week to all!
