Sprouting "IndyWatch Feed Craft"

 
 
Snowdrops, primroses, wild violets... They have all sprouted tricked by the fair weather tickling their seeds, caressing their stems, kissing their fragile petals.
 
Wishing for snow and seeing that it is not going to happen this year, I succumbed to the realization that spring is inevitably on its way.
 
My mind switched into a different mode and this is the result of it. I chose this lovely, used vintage fabric that was a skirt in its previous life, to make a mixed media necklace that is part of the Victorian collection I am slowly enlarging.
 
With this I bid you farewell and wish you all a perfect weekend!

Thrift Stalking "IndyWatch Feed Craft"

Thrifting is not a game. Thrifting is not just fun. Thrifting is a sport, not a strawberry social, yall.

To Wong Foo, Thanks for Everything Julie Newmar is on Netflix right now, btw.

Yesterday, my thrifting savagery reached a level Im not entirely proud of.

Let me explain. I popped into Goodwill and was browsing, like ya do. I was going through the handbags when  a lady to my left who was chatting on her phone said, Oh wow. I just found the weirdest thing. Its a vintage Dooney & Bourke suitcase thing!

No. Oh no you did not, I thought, my eyes narrowing to slits.

I kept my breathing slow and calm, but inside, I was more like
