Collection Cabinet

necklace 'jolie Fleur' click on the picture to go to my shop

A while ago I went to an outlet sale of vintage findings..... everything was so tempting... I know, I spend too much money on these beautiful treasures I took home with me, not knowing what to do with it yet, but I am sure to use in my future creations. (I used the velvet flower in the necklace 'jolie fleur' on top of this blogpost)

Beautiful vintage buttons in horn,mother of pearl, lucite, african glass beads, some gorgeous olive velvet ribbon and lipstick red trim, a bunch of vintage sacks with an original turquoise pattern...
(read more about vintage buttons on this very informative blog)


and a new black room-mate (I already had a white one), isn't she cute (and a pretty figure :-))

I do the same: buying everything that I like, that is why I am full of fabrics and beads (even in my bed). I have a silver foiled glass bead, that I bought in Berlin, in 2003! I am sure, that one day I will use it :-)

Jip, I can only agree with Veerle here! :) And I love buttons too - I think I need to start collecting them...

Very pretty figurine there. I wanna the same figure as her. Well, I am so spoilt when it comes to collecting supplies. Sooo sooo spoilt. But hey, at least is better than spending on clothes and cosmetics. :D On the overall, I must say, you have those magic fingers at work to make them into beautiful things.
