I got a vintage suitcase filled with trims and seam bindings, What a great find it was!


I adore your necklace idea, I came back to see what you used!
Thanks and Smiles, Cyndi

Junk_Sophisticate writes: Nicely done on all of them! I especially love the "North Hemisphere" lampshade. It is in perfect proportion with the lamp which looks as if they were meant for each other. Brilliant!
