Hi there! How are you? Did you guys all make it through the Super bowl? I was the designated bean dip and cocktail weanies chef. Very high class I tell ya. Today has been a reminder that alas...Winter is not over rover. Nope. Cold and snow flurries. Luckily it has not stuck. Oy.
At any rate...it was a great day to try out a few ideas I had using some antique handkerchiefs I found while out and about at my fave thrift store. I am sure you have heard the term "Waste not Want not"...a term heavily used during the great depression. They knew a value of a dollar and used what they had. Repurpose reuse....two beautiful words in my dictionary. I have a thing for old scraps of fabric and collect them...including hankies (I have a few of my great grandmothers that are dear to me) this time I allowed myself to cut a few up and had fun using them on cards. I plan to take the time to repurpose more often...I like the outcome. The two other cards I used scrappies on...I swear 2011 is the year for scraps! I am over run with them. The frame on the one card I painted (did not like the original color) and serendipity reared its head and made it chippy for me! LOVE how that happens from time to time. I like using the unexpected. How about you? Well I am off to catch up on dishes...the dish fairy never came. Hugs, cherry
