It has been an age since I have joined in with Sophie's fun and games - I have been treasure hunting but pre-Christmas many of my finds were destined to be gifts so I didn't want to spoil the surprise by sharing them here. This week however, all these treasures are for me me me!
Glorious grey shell buttons - the biggest of these are a whopping 3.5 cms across! It was love at first sight and I would have paid much more for them but they were bundled up into $2 packets so I didn't have to.
I picked these up whilst we were away at the seaside. They are definitely some kind of seed pod but I have no idea what kind - I will keep hunting around for an answer. They are quite black and bulbous. I will be deconstructing the necklace and using them for something yummy.
And why shouldn't buck-toothed squirrels play dress-ups I ask you?
This pretty china will be smashed and worked into earrings I think. I love it when I find odd bits of crockery with a small all over pattern. Speaking of jewellery, if you are in the mood for a little retail therapy please drop by my madeit shop - all the jewellery is now $20 and the proceeds of sales through January will be donated to the flood relief appeal - free shipping in Oz too!
