I am in Love !!

Yup , I am in love !!!  With a new favorite site that is ! Pinterest , I am a visual person  , so it is easy for me to get lost and waste... I mean ...use my time wisely, checking out all of the wonderful photos  !  If you have not discovered it yet , you need to check it out , it is a social catalog where you can find all kinds of inspiration and beautiful things, helping you organize, classify and share anything you find on the internet. You can click on the logo on the right  and follow me ( the large red P )  !!
I have also been crazy busy still making things! I made up some altered dominoes to use in some pendants and magnets, also have small tiny one's  ( they were hiding in another place ) ! I love my little wooden display holder , holds them perfectly !

A good friend of mine went to an auction sale that I was unable to attend & she was so kind to purchase several wonderful finds for me ( she knows what I love ) ! The little wooden display was one purchase and the brass letters . You should take the time to  check out her Etsy shop , FoundOnThe Prairie  great vintage treasures.We sometimes love the same things so it's best were not at a sale together !! Just kidding Melissa !  These are the brass letters that were used for printing , I will use them for jewelry !
Also been working on some book markers , using vintage velvet ribbon and lace then adding vintage beads & treasures. Makes for an elegant book marker !!
Made two entries for a challenge on our Yahoo group for Altered Pages , was anything metal!! One is an ATC with a "metal" key that I made from the "metal" tape from hardware stores, just ran it through my cuttlebuf with a Tim Holtz die.   Also an altered tin, was from a tin I had in my "pile" for a long time.

                           I hand dyed the lace and added handmade flowers that are grunged up  !!
Have a wonderful week & I hope you enjoy the little things !!
