Spoils


Where in the world
does time keep flying away to!?! I've been running around like a mad woman buying up supplies & hitting all the good thrift spots in town! Look at the spoils I returned with from this weekend + today...
I was in vintage enamel flower heaven :)

Yes, that's a new/vintage jewelry box as well! I don't even have a space for her yet, she's sitting on my squishy purple lounge chair in the studio looking all forlornly across the room at the others that are so neatly lined up ;)

********************

Speaking of enameled flowers....I've had this idea in my head for some type of floral fabric cuff to go with the necklaces for the upcoming fashion show but was reluctant to get out my sewing machine (it's 90 degrees here all of a sudden & just the thought of lifting that heavy thing out of the closet has me perspiring! Yes, real woman perspire, we don't sweat ...hahahaha)...

While digging through my especially horded stash of vintage crochet I stumbled across this beautiful yellow flower & this design blossomed before my eyes...

A lovely no sew project as she's attached to a vintage brass cut out cuff!

Can't wait to show her to you on the runway
all spruced up with the necklace
& on the gorgeous model :)

Have you gotten your ticket yet?

Rumor has it there are only 2 seats left
& it's standing room only from there on out!


Well my dearest birds, I have a ton of bloggy friends to catch up with! If I haven't been by in awhile don't fret I'm on my way! My internet keeps going out & the boy is on Spring Break which puts quite a damper on anything work related!

XoXo,
Johanna

Side note: Today I found the stash of jelly beans I hid from The Boy before Easter. I thought something was missing from his basket! My tummy is happily full of ALL the black jelly beans, I'm quite sure I'll regret that tomorrow! Here please take some before I eat the rest!
PS: this photo was taken prior to my picking out
all the licorice ones & stuffing my gut ;)
