Wedding Hearts

Been busy making decorated shabby chic hearts with some paints, ribbon and embellishments. They look lovely displayed on a white tree and would make perfect wedding decorations.
                                   I bought the wicker hearts cheaply on e bay- here is the link

What's on your Workdesk Wednesday? 249

Back around to Wednesday again and our trip around the world looking at creative places. Pop over to Stamping Ground to find out more and take a journey.

So what is happening on my desk?

There have been a few changes as I like to move things about a bit. I am proudly displaying a ceramic salt 'pig' which I found in a Charity Shop is the perfect storage for all my ink sponges. I have moved some of my tea cups and the cat pencil sharpener is trying to camouflage itself!

   I even got round to adding paper to the fronts of the little drawers I have had for about 10 years!

I get comments every week about the Vintage Tins on my desk....they are from Store 21, formerly QS, and are very inexpensive.

Here is the finished corsage which was hiding at the back of my desk last week.

Making Hair Combs

The final items in the hair comb collection
There were made by deconstructing a necklace and adding lace and beads to the filigree framework.

                               These lovely beaded flowers were simply glued onto hairgrips.

These Butterfly Brooches were wired to the combs.
