more black and white


Here are a few more items for my Sweet and Sinister partner Susie, the jar is now full, I had more fun looking for black and white buttons, the jar sat here on this black table for the last month while I kept feeding it buttons. I already miss this jar, I think I'll start another one. I just love the black and white candles, hand crafted beeswax, I found them at
MacKenzie-Childs. The pictures on the round box came from an old magazine form 1921 and I added a few vintage buttons to top it off. I had a hard time with the sinister part of this swap, so I just added a few little craft items and a black book, nothing is more sinister then a black book...

Sweet and Sinister swap




I just put the last touches on the items for the sweet and sinister swap , all wrapped and ready to go, I just have to find a box big enough to hold it all....


Here is a picture I took a few weeks ago, when the the jar was half full, it took me a while to find enough buttons to fill it, I couldn't think of anything sweeter for a crafter than to have a candy jar full of black and white vintage buttons....I hope my partner likes it.......

FREE




This sewing machine was free, just like it said it is, it was in a neighbor’s garage and on the way to the scrapheap. It does need a bit of work, it looks like someone closed it up 60 years ago and never took it out again. I found ivory handle scissors, an old pin cushion, and rust stained lace inside the cabinet door. This must have been in the cards for me to find today because I was a
lucky winner of some wonderful sewing items made by Mica at Garb-oodles Soup, I love these wonderful hand make items and I am so delighted to have won......
