Vintage Fabric Tags

Every Christmas it is my goal to dress up the gifts so people don't notice that we used grocery bags to wrap them. Remember last year?
Well, this year I didn't have time to paint on them (what was I thinking?) so I came up with the max amount of cuteness, for the least amount of work...
Vintage fabric tags!
Here's how:
• cut your cards and punch a hole (heavier note cards or card stock works best)
• pick out your fabrics and notions
• sew them on!

...see how easy that is?

Happy Holidays to all!

What a lovely day!
My sweet husband took Judah for the morning so I could take about a billion photos for a bunch of fun stuff I made last week. I had to stop and empty my memory card to keep going!
Now after a yummy dinner with friends, I'm wiped out, and smiling while I recap the day's events.
While sifting through the pics from today, I found this... look who wondered into the shot:

Isn't our Judah such a cutie?! He's a tiny little man in this photo.
Can't wait to post the new goods. Stay tuned!

Medallion Necklace

My Nana has been sweet enough to keep me supplied with boxes and bags of her old jewelry to pilfer through, keep, remake, sell, etc. A few months ago she sent me an entire jar filled with buttons that belonged to my Grandmommy (her mother-in-law). I remember eying that thing when I was a little girl! What a treat to have that on my work desk now. Sometimes I'll just get them out and rummage through, picking out my favorites, imagining the sweater she wore them on. And now in their second (or perhaps third or fourth) life they add the perfect touch to purses, jewelry, and brooches. Santa might use them in gifts this year! ✻wink wink✻
While I was sifting through my new jar of memories, a group of mixed golds and textured black buttons stood out to me and became the inspiration for my latest necklace: The Medallion Necklace. I'm so thrilled to share these little gems with you all!

North Pole Earrings

Things are looking quite festive around here...and last night I went on a jolly earring-making spree!
I just listed these sweet North Pole Earrings...complete with sparkling beads, vintage lace, and curious little polar bears (from my Nana's jewelry stash).

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!
