Finished this little necklace the other day...
I have been pinning fiber art for jewelry for some time now and finally decide to try my hand at it....
True to my nature (and my budget) I wasn't about to buy anything new to make it.
Of course I have a plenty of felted wool scraps laying around...and
I love the combination of green and pink...and with Valentines just around the corner...Well it just made sense to put them together!!
The lace came out of of sandwich bag full of vintage ribbon I picked up at a garage sale...
And of course the buttons are vintage too!!
I hand stitched a smaller heart on the back ...Can't leave it blank. :)
So what do you think?? It was fin to make...but will it sell??
(Will probably link up to some of the priest on my side bar...they do rock!!)

I haven't done any furniture makeovers since November...Yikes!!
So I thought I'd share this little sewing cabinet I finish last fall....
Found her earlier in the summer at a garage sale....so when I came across this sweet image of a girl sewing at Graphic Fairy I instantly knew where it belonged.
The first thing I did was paint it with homemade chalk paint...The color is a lovely blue gray called "Rain Drop" by Bher.
I used the same Mod Podge transfer method that I always use. You can find the complete instructions HERE.
Not sure what is is about vintage sewing cabinets and boxes but I just can't say no to them....I must not be the only one because this little gal sold right away. :)
The weather has been fridged this last week but I'm in the mood to paint...so I think I'll work on something small that I can do indoors. :) But it is defiantly time for me to get back into the painting groove!!!
Have a great weekend!
I will be linking to the parties in my side bar!! :)
