I made a quick long necklace today on a complete whim. I pulled out the top/dress I like when the weather is like the inside of an oven with no cakes, and decided I needed a long necklace to wear with it.
I have had this sliced up tagua nut set for a while and have never really decided how to use them. Funny how all of a sudden a design pops into your head and you know exactly how to execute it. So, I grabbed my leather and tied them on, chose a button and made a fastener with it. Ta dah!
I love these simple necklaces I made last week, they are light to wear and look great together or alone. I have some similar necklaces which I wear with everything. They are in my Etsy store if you want to see more photos.
Do you like my new colander? I got it at a local yard sale last weekend. I love the stars and I couldn’t leave it behind. I also got some little 1950’s aluminium Jello molds, they are all different shapes and all say ‘Jell-o’ on the base. No buttons at this sale, but lots of vintage kitchen wares so I was a happy customer!
Do you like a yard sale? I love them – treasure hunting at its best. I am happy to walk away with nothing – honest! Buttons beads and vintage housewares are a magnet for me though.
