On to the fun things! I trailed after my mum and sisters to "arab street" (a cute, old, antique-y place here in Singapore) to find material for our choir girls' dresses for our next season and I found a big roll of burlap in one of the stores! .exactly.what.I.wanted.
So I asked the "auntie" to cut half-a-meter for me, and I took it home and snipped it up and made these little gift-pockets.
trimmed with real, crocheted lace and fairy wings, tea-dyed buds and a felt rose. And the most beautiful chandelier drops I found in a beads-and-trinkets store.
little lockets and key trinkets I found somewhere on "arab street". these stores are nameless and I'm not sure I can find them again next time. *frowny face*
And I made a card with a little burlap too.. here 'tis..
.. see the cute wall-panels behind my card? I picked it up for just a few dollars at the wonderful beads-and-trinkets store ... the old fashioned kind of place with lots of cute things to pick over -- and I just love that little panel! here's a full photo -- darling isn't it?
Last of all... today is...
... here are some of my very favorite goodies that I used in the creations shared today... and I would love to give a bundle of them away to you as a "thank you" for all the times you've come to visit. whether you come often, or this is your first time popping in, just say so.. I love to get to know my readers too :)
only one rule: if you don't leave a comment, you don't get to be picked. Easy? you can say anything you please in your comments. Niceness not enforced here :)
*sometimes, just sometimes, I feel cranky and don't participate in giveaways... if that's you today, please do still leave a comment because I'm just aching all over to know just who reads my silly blog... will you? you're a dear!*
Next weekend, I will be back and draw a name. And if we go more than 50 comments, I will pick two winners. each will get this goodie bundle...
