I hope you are all looking forward to 2016.
I can hardly believe it's here.
Though my 2015 was not a "fly-by" year.
Last year was a turning point for me for learning to
live in the moment.
If I was pressured to think about the future or tasks ahead
too much, I realized that I was trying to fit too
much in. It was a helpful gauge for
keeping me within realistic boundaries.
And in working to stay true to that,
it increased the quality of my time and focus.
It also slowed the passing of my valuable time.
Don't you love learning new things?
I sure do.
CHEERS to 2016
and all that we will learn
and be the richer for!
Today, I'd like to show you this really cute purse
that I found at a thrift store.
As usual, I don't have a before photo.
I had one but have misplaced it.
This is the first purse I have re-loved.
The color and style caught my eye and I thought it
would be perfect for a project.
It was so fun thinking it through and dressing it up
with vintage trims, doilies and antique buttons!
Here, I added a bit of chain for interest.
The flowers are made from a cotton, thrift store shirt.
I thought the detailed stitching
on the purse added a lot.
I have a few of these tiny antique metal buttons.
It was just what I was looking for!
I so enjoy finding treasures that I
can re-love and use or find new homes for.
What do you enjoy doing?
I'd love to hear about it.
Life is so interesting.
Thank you so much for coming by.
