My lovely sister Therese is staying with us for the Easter holidays. She always has stylish and innovative ideas for accessories. She manages to turn a narrow piece of vintage lace into a chic and simple accessory.
Yesterday afternoon, I got out some bits and pieces from my stash of crafting goodies and we made a start on some brooches.
Recently, I found a small packet of unusual plastic shapes in a great selection of 50s colours. When we started playing around with them, using old buckles as the base for the brooch compositions, Therese realised that the plastic shapes are actually the cut-out pieces from the buckles themselves. It seems like a nice idea to put them back together again, so we'll buy some brooch pins when the shops reopen tomorrow and finish them off.
