pink saturday

good morning! the weather here has been beautiful and pinkness is blooming everywhere, even in my studio room!! the brooches below were made with an vintage chenille blanket that i cut and dyed various colors. i clipped loops and sewed them onto a small piece of wool with wool leaves. each one is a little different. so springtime and fun!!


a few more pieces of jewelry made with vintage buttons and jewelry parts.

hope y'all all have a wonderful pink week. going visit my pink hostess beverly now and the pink party girls!!

Those are beautiful little flowers for decorating ourselves with. How creative you are. And the eggs earlier are precious but not nearly so precious as the tow little ones. You have beautiful children. Enjoy them at this age because you'll blink and they'll be grown.

God bless,
Jennifer

That chenille jewelery is stunning. I really like your button ones also. That glass hand is so cute. I have a china one from Hall's China. Is this one of Hall's made of glass or what kind is it?
