So here's how it went down yesterday. I was finishing up all my little pieces for The Vintage-Flea booth. Pricing this, signs for that. And then I got the itch to work on something totally new to add to the mix. So I pulled out the ceramic robins behind the cuffs below and attempted to embellish them. Yeah....didn't work out like I wanted. Bummer. And then I remembered the wreaths I saw in blogland Monday. This artist had fallen in love with the $40 cone wreath at Target that I too had drooled over (it's in that section by the books and stationary...you know that expensive section with the door mats?). She had made her own using a wreath form and 2 Reader's Digest books. It was genius....and gorgeous. So into the garage I went looking for a wreath form. Dang, packed all that up in my purging for the selling of our house. So I glanced around and thought, "I wonder if I can make those swirly flowers out of all the fabric scraps I have? Well that was a yes. So then I set out to find something to glue them to. And that's when I unearthed these brassish cuffs that had been tucked away for a "rainy day" project.
Seriously, I puffy heart them. I am going to buy a headband today and see how they look on that base. I am thinking Mailey is going to have a new hair accessory! So they are available at the Flea, but if you want one just email me and I'll send one your way! They are $22 each.
