Karen and I have only known each other a couple of years...but we have become close friends. We have the bond of OC, Ovarian Cancer. I am battling it, she saw her mom battle it. But we are more than that......we love to decorate, shop, find a great treasure, eat good food...craft and create.
Karen suggested we do a swap.....oh mercy. She is like the queen of this and I am a newbie.
So Marty and I went to Karen's home and I could not wait to spend time in her amazing studio. I was looking at all the goodies and I came upon something that was really to my LIKIN!!!
Karen, where did you find this? That is for you Ceekay...that is your swap!
I was speechless. I could feel the tears coming......It is soooo precious.
It is a little memory box with dividers....
Karen made the flower on the top and finish it with this vintage jewelry piece.
I know....I know....major hoarding here! It is filled with bits and bobs of lace and ribbons...
She shared some of her precious collection of old buttons. I vaguely remember her saying they were part of her mom's collection, which makes them even more precious.
She told me I needed to create with these watch pieces....well then Karen....don't make them look so cute on a tag.....!!!!
