I sanded... and sanded, and sanded and sanded and sanded. I have the skinned fingers and jagged nails to show for it today, too!
I made some more Valentine's Day pieces for the shop. I love the cottage chic, shabby chic look, and anything vintage. I wanted to do a few "distressed" pieces in Red, and these brooches are the result, and being the Diva I am, couldn't help but add a little bling, too, with some Swarovski crystals. Why is it that photographing reds and blacks makes them look like x-rays? That is not a defect in the piece on the right, either. It's camera glare. Sorry about that!
I also made some more vintage pieces with an Arts and Crafts Movement feel to them. For some reason, they remind me of Frank Lloyd Wright!
