Hey! How have you been? I've been working on some Valentine's themed projects ^_^ I know it's cheesy and over-commercialised, but I love Valentine's Day! ^_^
I'm embroidering a pattern by Sublime Stitching, which I should have done to show you in my next post, but I've also made these super easy heart brooches ...
I think they are really cute!
All I did to make them was roll out some Fimo, cut out the hearts with an old biscuit cutter, and then embossed some words using my tiny alphabet stamps.
Then I just attached some badge backings with E6000.
This red one is my favourite! ^_^
The good thing about these is that you can wear them all together for a big impact, or just wear one for a more subtle look ^_^
Next up: op-shop finds! Scott and I went searching to today for waistcoats and bow-ties, and come home instead with dishes and a typewriter. Opps! We're just going to have to do more searching for vintage men's wear ... what a pity! ~_^
The dish above I think might be milk glass? I am not entirely sure if there is a special way to tell, apart from it being white and glass >_<
Anyway, I really like it; I think the pattern is pretty cool too!
My new typewriter (and my favourite find of today!) is a cream/ beige Olivetti Dora - it's very pretty and it even came with ribbons! Score! ^_^
Lastly, I got these two cute little dishes; the one with violets is from England, and the other is decorated with little shamrocks and is a piece of souvenir wear from (you guessed it) Ireland.
Do you have plans for Valentine's Day? Any suggestions for presents I should make (or buy!) for my nerdy, Star Wars obsessed husband? Let me know! ^_^
