Trinkets and Doo-Dads

I am 'addicted' to trinkets!  I can hardly pass a possible future embellishment without grabbing it up and putting it into my stash.  These treasures give me endless inspiration and often create something almost on their own -- I'm just the hands that they pass through.

I thank all of those who have created and packaged these bits of magic. I have to admit that my stash is a lot larger than shown here, this are just a very small  sample of the buttons, bells, and wonderful doo-dads that reside here.  I love them all!

"To invent, you need a good imagination and a pile of junk." - Thomas Edison


  1. They must inspire so many ideas!

  2. OMGosh!! I could have written this. I can't pass any bit up. I especially LOVE old lapel pins..any school, club, award....I love them. Old keys are keepers as well as metal tags.

  3. Oh, yes, I can just imagine the whole collection! And you find such great ways of including them in your art.

  4. It's the fact that they've been pre-owned that I love, and what wodnerful stories they'd tell if they could talk!
