The Goose Is Getting Fat …

…. really fat. Christmas is rapidly catching up and I am still not ready for Judy’s vintage fair.

Are artists ever ready?

That said, I have been running some ideas past my new best friend Del at Curlsnskirls who has been the most spectacular inspiration and guide. How much did I luck out getting Del as my swap buddy. Well done Kat for that one, international relations between Bedfordshire and Viginia are going swimmingly πŸ™‚

I digress, here for your approval/comments are a few new creations. All have an element of GENUINE vintage, not vintage like or retro style. Good honest to God vintage.

The buttons are circa 1920’s glass made in England, probably in the Midlands. The cream and gold ric rac also made in England circa 1950’s and the flowers made from cushion trim is circa 1940’s with mother of pearl button centre’s again made in England.

Bit of an England theme there but I will have items with French glass buttons form the 1920’s, Italian lace from the same era but they are yet to be made. They are made in my head but of course no matter how creative you are, that’s a whole different creative skill to see in my messy old head πŸ˜‰

Hope you like and welcome your feedback

    Thanks much for your generously kind words, Lovely, but only said what I thought – your fabric choices are far beyond what we see across the pond (or what I can locate), and all those buttons you scatter onto your creations are to die for! ALL VINTAGE!!! Just wish we were closer, but there’s always Aruba! xxx del
