Create: Using vintage treasures

I opened my online shop about a year and half ago when I realized I had to much stuff.  I had acquired most of the items I listed in my shop with good intentions of incorporating them into my crafting. But eventually I was overwhelmed with beautiful treasures that were stashed in drawers and boxes never seeing the light of day.  I decided it was time to find them new homes, where people could use and appreciate them. 

I was so thrilled when Judy from Vintage Reunion contacted me to let me know how she had used a simple embellishment from my shop to make a beautiful necklace.  Such creativity in making this piece and seeing beyond the traditional uses for beaded notions! I can imagine it going beautifully with so many outfits! Rumor has it there is a headband in the works with another one of the same embellishments, and I'm hoping I get to see that as well. I'm also loving this necklace I found in Judy's shop.

I'm always so happy to hear about what everyone is making using items they found in my shop, or how they have used an item in their decor. Please don't be shy- let me know! It makes my day, inspires me, and makes parting with them a little easier :)
