Firstly I went to to a jewellery chap who has the most luscious bits and pieces I just wish I was wealthier!! Anyway he had a large tin of military buttons, emblems and ribbon and I have a bit of a military thing at the moment so a purchase was made. I also discovered a silver pendant with and ivory insert of two love birds I couldn't resist. He apologised for not having cleaned it but that's also what attracted me to it the age of the object I hate things shiny and new.
So next came Jean 's bag of bits which held some delightful treasures wonderful old fabrics a wool camisole and some very faded trim.
On arriving home the postman had delivered my new book Karen Nicol's Embellished what a wonderful book it is just a feast of inspiration. With all my purchases spread at my feet I played and hence took photos for you to see ....
