White Wednesday 101

Last weekend was our annual 
neighborhood rummage sale!

I did not have time to put together my own sale,
nor did I have much time to plunder, unfortunately.

But I did manage to find a couple
of white treasures to share for

I'm always on the look-out for 
crocheted doilies,
and vintage jewelery
to use in my crafting!

I think this pin would look nice on a journal.

Cameos are ALWAYS a good find!

And isn't she adorable!
Another good journal or
altered canvas piece!

But here is my favorite find!

A crocheted lace and pearl collar!

I don't think I could have too many of these!

Even though I really don't know what
I will do with them.
Do you have any suggestions???

Happy White Wednesday Hugs!

One of the advantages
to having an
abnormally cool spring
is that the tulips
have lasted a lot longer than usual!

I love this time of year!

Can't wait for my lilac bush to bloom!

Have a wonderful day!

Inspiration is EVERYWHERE!
There are so many things
that catch my eye,
and I think,
"Someday, I would like to try that!"
If I had a book to hold
everything I would like to make
it would fill many volumes in a library....

~ But this ~
This was just what I needed
to get myself off my seat
and actually create!

Karen over at Todolwen made this beautiful
sewing kit from a 
Bath & Body Works Wallflowers box.
Isn't that the cutest thing you've ever seen?!
(You need to go to her blog & see all the goodies she has packed inside this little box!  It's incredible!)

And here is my version:
 What started out as my own sewing box...

 ended up a "nature" box!
(which is why there's pattern paper covering the inside instead of sheet music!)

 Stamped muslin and sprigs of lavender cover the inside of the box lid.

 And little inspirations of nature fill the bottom.

 This was to be a Mother's Day gift for my mom,
so I wanted to fill it with things she likes...
like lavender and bird houses!

I'm hoping to find more of these little boxes at
Bath & Body Works so I can make more!

Linking up with 
Kathleen at Faded Charm

Have a Wonderful Day!
