after what seems like such a long time I ventured out with my daughter Ashleigh today to one of the antique stores I visit and I found something lovely! I actually had seen this beauty some time ago and then it was gone ~ sold I thought but today it was back and I wasn't going to let it get away again and now it is mine.
I am talking about a lovely vintage hat covered in vintage millnery flowers in the form of velvet violets. Small ones and larger ones ... light ones and darker ones ... many, many voilets! Needless to say that after arriving home with it, it didn't take long for the scissors to came out and play, clipping threads here and there and freeing the lovely blooms from their bed of dark blue fabric.
To tell you the truth I haven't got any creation in mind just yet for these beautiful blossoms but I am sure if I look at them long and often enought something will grow in my mind to give them a new life!
All together I 'picked' 75 vintage tattered voilets!
I am so excited to see what new creation will come to blossom from these violets! Please be sure to stop by Todolwen every now and again to see what I am up to, and to see what happens with this wonderful treasure I picked up today!
I hope you are well and life is treating you kind.
Have a peaceful and creative day,
