Foraging


I've gone through my fabric stash and pulled out 'possibilities' -- pieces that may or may not qualify for doll clothing.  There are homespuns and flannels, fine cotton and old lace, you can even see the old sock that I've used just recently.


The other day I found a bunch of old buttons at a local thrift store.   I was in heaven -- not only for the possibilities they represented but also for the fact that I got the whole bunch for less than $3.00 and I was contributing to a worthwhile cause *smile*.


Recently I found some rusty leaves at a shop in Dillsboro, NC and made my monthly trip to Honeysuckle Hollow here in Hendersonville.  There I found more vintage lace, some tags and a couple of felt hearts.
 
For now I'm set for materials - let the ideas and inspiration begin...

  2. Love those old buttons with the straight line in them. Have fun creating with all your new-found stuff.

  3. I love the serendipity of finding things at charity (thrift) shops and boot sales. So much more satisfying than going shopping with a set agenda.:o)

  4. It's so much fun to dig out and handle these things while the imagination wanders. Something will rise to the surface and be on its way to creation!
