a little box of beauty
Whilst sorting I came across my degree show pieces which I sorted into a lovely old suitcase given to me by my friend Elaine's mother...
a lovely tattered and battered case
gorgeous interior paper design
I found a beautiful vintage collar which I had temporarily misplaced (along with another dozen things!) I bought this in The Kasbah (no not in Morocco) a local furniture emporium. I found this in the bottom of a banana box amongst crochet doilleys and tablecloths. My heart skipped a beat when I found this little gem and it was purchased along with a few little other pieces and I knew immediately that I would never part with it. I am thinking of keeping it the natural colour but maybe dip-dyeing it a little darker on the edges to give it a more time worn appearance. Apologies for the quality of the images, the light is so poor at the moment.
Betty volunteered to wear the collar
I think I will just make some simple ties to fasten the collar
my favourite detail - the little circles
Better get back to the dye pot, my lovely treasured fragments are soaking..... until next time Jayne x
