Hello my dear friends,
yes, it's been a while again hasn't it?!
These last weeks have been less about being creative but more about being outside, walking and spending time in nature and all it's beauty. I am very fortuante to live in a city that has several beautiful forests and nature areas.
These days I struggle being inspired which can be so frustrating. I don't go out as much as I used too and I for sure don't shop as much as I used too either so I am grateful when I see something neat and an idea pops into my head right away. That is what happened a few days ago.
I found these neat mother of pearl salt and pepper shakers whilst out and about looking for some treasures and just had to have them. I couldn't wait to work with them but it took a day or two to finally come up with what I wanted them to be.
I knew that they were kitchen/table utensils but I saw something else in them. I saw neat and unusual needle cases/needle keeps. I just needed to work on making them look that little bit prettier.
And that is exactly what I did. I worked on them and they are now done and I am so happy with the way they have turned out! I embellished them with some tiny real seashells and sweetwater pearls. Vintage lace was a must again too and of course that little sparkle was also needed. Not too little and not too much, with a bit of the seaside feel, perfect in my eyes.
And this is how they look now ... my seaside needle keeps/ needle cases.
This is the first one ...
