My Studio is Springing to Life

I have still been Working on my Spring Cleaning
(Garage Sale planned for Saturday)
and in doing so unearthing some do-dads
that are Inspiring me!


I have embellished  a Large Matchbox
this is a first for me Inside and Out!
And then I coffee stained some Tags 
this morning with my left over coffee and
also decided to dye a few Pink!



I also took sometime
to photograph more of my
Ruffled Crepe to add to My Shop
So now I'll have a Nice Bright Yellow 
and Summer Lime Green in the Shop


Like I said I have been clearing out closets and
going through boxes in the attic, sorting through drawers
and cabinets so it's official I'm having
a Garage Sale Saturday!
I will be setting things up in the garage Friday
I promise to snap a picture or two
Wish me Luck!

Happy Spring!

Your match box is soooo cute! Where did you find the paper you wrapped it in? It looks like vintage wall paper to me. That alone is a treasure, but put all together with your the vintage rhinestones, little flowers, ruffled crepe and your pretty tag, it's FABULOUS!
