What's On My Workbench



Hello Blogger Friends,

I have just a quick post to show you what I've been up to lately.  I have all of this great antique lace and after seeing a few pretty wrist cuffs around, I thought to myself, "Self, you should do that."  So I did.  It turned out so nice, I decided to make another one to sell on Etsy at my shop, Elegant Farmhouse.  I'm thinking I might make a couple more since inspiration is now flowing with all of this pretty lace...



Oh, and that beautiful antique HAND WRITTEN French sheet music the cuff is on in the first picture was an Etsy find. I love ETSY!

I'm linking up this post to Kathleen's White Wednesday , Sandy's Vintage Video Party and Debra's Vintage Inspiration Friday.



Until next time,
Pin It!

  10. Hi Judy,

    I love your beautiful lace cuff and the old sheet music. Don't you love old lace, just so much lovelier than the new nylon and synthetic lace that is around nowdays.

    Happy Thursday
    Hugs

  25. You are right... your cuffs and a Romantically inspired Bohemian Bag would look terrific together! *winks* I have been pondering how to go about making one of my bags using Vintage Lace as a primary feature for a distinctly Romantic vibe. Just haven't gotten around to experimenting with that vision since I have a laundry list of patient clients still waiting on their creations that I have to get to first. I am such a S-L-O-W distractible ADD Artist! *LOL*
