My Last ' Last Week Sunday' Creations ..

Hello my dear friends,

today I am sharing my last two creations that I have made from my last week Sunday's treasures. For those that haven't read yesterdays post, todays creations are a part of a set of little salt and pepper shakers.

And this is what I have made from the tops of the two little shakers ...
... I turned them into lovely tassels.
One looking very vintage with all different types of ribbons, silks and laces and as the little special touch a vintage piece of sparkle ...  

Yes, .. I did get photo bombed again! Seems to be the thing these days.

...and the other one ...  

 ... all wintry and glistening, again with lots of different laces, ribbons and  yarns. The special touch for this creation is a large snowflake embedded with Swarovski crystals.

Both of these creations beautiful in their own special little way.
It is amazing what you can create from something little ~ you just have to let you mind wander off into the land of creativeness and let it fly.
Thank you so much for taking the time to visit me again here at Todolwen ~ it means so much to me.
I hope you are well my dear friends and life is treating you kind.
Have a peaceful and creative day.

Last Week Sunday ~ Treasure No. 3 ..

Hello my dear friends,

today's post is about my third and last treasure I found this last week Sunday.

 I thought this would the finale one of my 'Last Sunday' posts but it's not. There will be the last post about my Last Week Sunday's treasures tomorrow.

If you think about it properly, my last treasure is actually two treasures in the shape of a pair of old tarnished little silver salt and pepper shakers.

The are so neat and small and only 1 3/4 inches tall.
Of course pincushions again were one of my options to make but I wasn't quite sure if  I wanted to make another one. Christmas and Winter popped into my mind as well but that was it really. In the end I just sat down and let my mind fly away to the land of creative thoughts and suddenly it just came very easily to me what I wanted to make from this finding.

 Do you all remember my little tiny pewter animals? ... My stash of them is getting smaller but I just had to make these a part of at least one of these creations as well. Once they are gone, I won't be able to get anymore that I know of right now. Also a neat thing about this treasure is that I wasn't just able to make one creation from it. No, ... I made four and three of them ended up being Christmas/Winter themed.

Are you curious now? ...

Would you like to see what I made? ...

... here they are the first two of my four latest creations and I hope you will enjoy them.

I love it how the everything looks so beautiful together ...
... the tarnished metal, the shiny silver and crystals and the glistening snow ...
... a little Christmas/Winter magic.



The little tree top star is embedded with Swarovski crystals which make it glisten in the light.



My little Christmas creations have turned very nicely in my eyes and I hope you like them too.
Already I am thinking about what I could create next and already I have an idea too and I can't wait to start working on it. What are you up to these days?
It would be nice for you to stop by again and visit me here at Todolwen ... maybe tomorrow for my next new creation? And until then ...
I hope you are well my dear friends and life is treating you kind.
Have a peaceful and creative day.

Last Week Sunday ~ Treasure No.2 ..

Hello my dear friends,

today I would like to share my second found treasure from last Sunday's outing.

It is a small neat, old and tarnished little metal basket.

I knew exactly what I was going to create from this little piece again and I am so happy with the way it has turned out ( you can tell by the amount of photo I have posted today).
 I love all the bits and pieces that I have used for this creation it because even though they are so very different from each other, they all work so well together.
This is my newest creation and again it is a pincushion which I have named ... 

 ... 'White Blossoms'.  



 Maybe you will have a few minutes to visit me tomorrow again?
I will be sharing my third finding and now creation(s).
I hope you are well my dear friends and life is treating you kind.
Have a peaceful and creative day.
