Embellishment




Oh my gosh ... it is 10:45 and I find myself still in my jammies... Hang on... I'll be right back....
While sipping coffee this morning I went upon a site and instantly found inspiration with every single object I viewed there... I found a real touch of Robin Brown in her creations but distinctly hers also... When visiting http://pennriverdesigns.com I took one look at a floor lamp I purchased several years ago for 5.00 and thought it was a candidate for a redo...thinking this would bring a touch of new eye candy for the holidays... A hour and a half later I had scoured the house and found 2 pair of old lace cuffs... a wonderful old piece of hand-crocheted lace that I had purchased to do a altered art journal with { I was able to safe 12 inches to use on a journal also }.. a tag I had made... of course a rhinestone brooch.. another hand-made doily and some crinkle ribbon... I just hand tacked the items on with needle and thread and now have some new eye candy to look at... It is amazing when we look around how much we can find laying ready for a project... especially when you have in mind you do not want to spend any money... I may find a couple other pieces as I search for objects to tuck in for holiday decorating but for right now... the shade is pretty darn cute with the touch of romance I love so much... Lace and the glam of rhinestone's always add just the right touch for me and my style...
Please go to the site and visit... Lot's of eye candy for all you that love altered art and something that's not for everybody.... Enjoy....
