PINK POODLE IS "CRAFT CENTRAL"!!~~



Turning out to be not too bad a day here in Melbourne this afternoon, after a few cold days which I am NOT enjoying..

I have gone a tad "pyscho" re crafting for some reason??

Painted lots more pegs...made some fridge magnets...(EBAY stuff ONLY)...

Making LOTS MORE "french dictionary cards" (as I call them)..embellished with vintage crochet circles..
& LOTS of vintage music sheet & french dictionary inspired decor balls....~~

Dyeing LOTS of vintage crochet pillows & cloths...

Played around with trying to stiffen some doilies with a heavy sugar/water mixture...
still drying...but I THINK it is kind of working..?? per photos..

Next on my agenda is to make candles in gorgeous VINTAGE cups/saucers/glass jars etc (per last photo)...~~~~~~

I think I am kind of in a bit of a panic mode as I , along with some other blogging buddies, are exhibiting again at the wonderful "SHABBY VINTAGE JUNK" extravaganza organised by Tamarah..

www.shabbyvintagejunk.blogspot.com

We had the FIRST EVER ONE IN AUSTRALIA last August..
& it was such a success & a delight to participate in..

This up coming fair is on the 3rd/4th June ...
at the ASHBURTON scout hall..

soo all vic lovers of shabby/vintage/junk KEEP it in mind...

Even INTERSTATE ladies...
Well worth the trip to check it out..

this fair is purely vintage themed goodies....(NOT my painted pegs etc)..

BUT a TRUE VINTAGE inspired FAIR...
