A Story in a Box...

How pretty is this antique tin box?! And what a surprise when you open her up to find a beautiful "Story in a Box".
"A reflection of vintage appeal"

Vintage fabric, lavender, antique flower pin, pearls and a little bit of Paris
I'm in the process of making another one. This time the story will be in an old suitcase...

Some of my Holiday Creations...

An example of the cards that didn't quite make it in the mail

The tree

Garland up the stairs and the beautiful 3D Snowflakes I made

Some of the "U's" that went on all of my gifts

The tree topper I reinvented with silver eyelash yarn

My handmade tree skirt, felt and ribbon

The card tree and my house painting in the entry

There will be more to come...

Had to add one more crafty holiday idea...

Fabric collage at it's finest...

The most amazing quilts,

Nice idea for reusing those old jeans,
Just because I think they're beautiful,
