Thimbles

Apr 10, 2012

I always get asked “What are you going to do with these”? when I’m digging in flea markets and such for little treasures to use in projects and such. So I thought I would give you a little insight into my head. Warning: Enter at your own risk! It’s a scary place inside this head of mine.

I love adding to my ever growing, tarnished, slightly scratched and dented thimble collection. Oh how I love tarnished, slightly scratched and dented everything as well as tattered, torn and frayed.

So here goes… 15 seconds inside my head.

  • Accent for a shadow box
  • Charm for a necklace or bracelet
  • Tiny pot for vintage flowers
  • Cute miniature cupcake
  • GASP… smashed flat… an embellishment for a heritage themed mini album or layout
  • Base for a miniature ornament

You all know how I’m such a vintage girl at heart… but I must admit a little bit of a vintage “Dirty Girl” is starting to come out too. I had some fun yesterday, finding more courage… how about you?

Hugs!
