In the pink

Hello Everyone,

This is a surprise...me posting this time of the night...but I was having a tidy up on my PC and came across this photo...



Okay...it's not broccoli....but baby socks...give me a second or two and the penny dropped..

I was at the dairy, weeks ago and saw these socks....but my eyes really saw the lace, and thought" how pretty"...so I bought them....and did this......



Sinful.. I know....found an image, coloured it and made this.....



A lovely 50's...60's image from.....sorry, cant remember and didn't write it down on my paper...but there is that pretty lace...



I wish the sparkle showed more, because looking at it on my desk it just glimmers under the light...



Coloured with my Faber Castell pencils, loads of white glitter, half pink pearls, and papers from my girl folder of scraps...

Going to enter into the Ready-teddy-go challenge   [In the Pink]

Amazing what you find when having a tidy up.....found this too, which should have been posted ages ago...a  little gift from my G/sons on Christmas morning.



A little garden watering can....cute huh!!



This is where he sits, outside my back door, could not bear to put water in him, so he just sits and looks cute...



Time for my jim jams...had a big day and getting too sleepy to play....see you in the morning with an OTT...creation....
Welcome to my new follower, thank you so much for joining me...


Luv CHRISSYxx

It's amazing how creative us crafters can be - but some poor child is now getting laceless socks! Definitely put to good use though hun, lol. And as for your watering can - I def think you need to use it, it would make the neighbours day seeing you pottering around with that! Hugs Sxx

That's a hoot Crissy... only a crafter sees socks as embellishments, right? It is perfect trim though, I have to admit. I love the watering can... bright, cheery and cute!

Hahahahaha....sock ribbon! LOVE THAT. Remind me if I ever visit, not to wear anything with a cute trim on it!
Love your innovative thinking and how stellar that lace looks on the card. SOOOO way cuter than on the sock.
As for your watering can...OUT OF THIS WORLD adorable. My gosh, that's got to be the best watering can I've ever seen. What great grandkids you have!

Hugs,

Angela said...

The lace looks so pretty. I too do things like that all the time. I think to myself every time I go to throw something away.. can I use it on any of my creations??? and if so I keep it and go ahead and cut it up if needed so I will remember to use it.
I love the vintage image .. oh and that watering can is ADORABLE!!!
Hugs:)
