Very PINteresting

Red Cream 2_edited-1

Hello, my friends!

Have just about all of you discovered Pinterest by now???  I have to tell you…it’s my biggest addiction ever!

Pretty pictures and ideas by the score—just waiting to be saved on lovely virtual boards & used when I have the time…

Cream soda 2_edited-1

…and I finally had the time for this one!

A really fun pin I saw there a couple of months ago—such a great idea—and I had all the materials on hand already!

Pins 22 {vintage buttons from my stash, pretty little millinery flowers & my new favorite vintage style resin flowers finish them off!}

Based around vintage soda pop caps (which I already had and hadn’t done anything with yet!), you just add any sweet little embellishments you chose until you’re happy with them…

Pins 44 {all image buttons are found on Crafty Secrets’ “Mini Vintage” Creative Scraps & topped with acrylic buttons}

…and I think I’m happy!

Pins 3

They look so cute on a chunky sweater or jacket…a fun little gift to make for family or friends.  Good thing I have lots of these bottle caps!

 Pins 1

Take a peek at Pinterest…you never know what you’ll discover…but one thing’s for sure—you’ll be hooked!

{and if you want to see what’s peaking my Pinterest, just click the bright red logo on my sidebar!}

See you soon with something new…

The Fairies’ Dance


The fairies wouldn’t stop dancing around in my head this week…fairy-themed projects I couldn’t quite get out of my mind…

Pinned Image

…I tried to stop them, I really tried!

“After Christmas”, I told them…”I’ve got too much to do!”

…decorating, gifts to finish, Christmas projects, baking……………..


They still wouldn’t stop.

The only way I’ve found to stop the dancing is to listen to the fairies…

…so I did.

A couple of little fairy projects made this weekend…

And then we have little cutie:


A pretty piece of vintage sheet music found online, beautiful paper, and some lovely flowers…that’s about all it takes to make this little fairy happy…

…maybe now I can finish decorating!


So don’t forget to listen to the fairies…maybe they’ll actually help me with all my decorating now!
