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. 


  1. Karen,
    These are so pretty! I just found a box with 6 sets of these salt and pepper shakers, I will probably use them on the table, but what an awesome idea! I would LOVE to see a picture of your tassels hanging on a tree or somewhere! THis makes me want to make tassels!

  2. Those tassels really do look so peaceful, but then again, they excite my imagination! Thanks Karen.

  3. Karen I loved these tassels as well as the 2 other creations you shared yesterday. So much beauty and creativity from 2 little salt and pepper shakers. Thanks for sharing, very inspiring. Have a creative day! Pam

  4. These are gorgeous Karen, now I know what to do with all of those salt shaker tops I have left over from other projects. Thanks for the inspiration and beauty!
    hugs and JOY,

  5. Like I said before........your creativity amazes me.

  6. Well my goodness, I didn't even THINK about there being tops to use. What a fantastic idea...and how beautiful they've turned out. I love tassels, and have them here and there around the house.
    You've blown me away again!

  7. These tassels are absolutely gorgeous. I'm especially partial to the white one, and I love the addition of the sparkle and bling! Best wishes for a lovely day!

  8. How very beautiful they are Karen,- and such a lovely idea. I love all the ribbons and yarn you have used, and the glittering snowflakes ,too.
