Retro Style Jewelry: Up-cycled fur and pearls


I just finished this set for my shop Kokar. I have a craft fair on Saturday and I am so pleased that I finished this piece late last night.
I used up-cyced rabbit fur and pearls for the necklace and I love the retro feel!
Add the hair comb to match and there you have  ... pure 50's glamour!

Revamped Jewelry, from Old to New!

I went on a craze last nigh and up-cycled old necklaces and one ring that had lost its pair:)
Happy with my new pieces!

Too bad I forgot to take the "before" photos.

 This was an earring with 3 turquoise beads, butI lost the pair. Just added a big orange stone and made a gorgeous necklace and  new pair of earrings, love them!

Easy Baby Doll Easy Crochet Hat

Snow storm outside, no school, Sofia asked me to make a hat for her baby  doll
Ok, off to work!
All single crochet and very easy.

 She has a strong motherly instinct, so sweet!

An Easy Craft Fair "Banner"


I wanted a nice , quick and charming banner for my table at the craft fair and after a  little brainstorm and almost no elbow grease I have one and I love the result.

I bought wooden letters at Michael's and first spray painted them red.
 I used milk paint that I have purchased a while ago at the thrift store and never used.
 Mixed both for a muted greeny blue

 Some light  sanding, gel stain, wiping and I had this result:
Shabby and old looking, I like it!
I used E-600 glue to attach tem to a piece of drift wood that I already had and It gave it an even more primitive and "nature" look, juts as I wanted!
