The Mad Hatters Pinkeep

I am still playing around with ideas from inspirations from Alice In Wonderland. Its been alot of fun to use the pretty blue and white colors. I found this empty pocket watch case and started thinking about some ideas for that. Its seemed too big for a pendant. One thought led to another and somehow my brain came up with the idea of doing a small pin cushion. After all the Mad Hatter designed hats and surely used such a sewing notion. :) I repurposed an old brass bangle bracelet and wrapped it with blue velvet ribbon and added the roses. I truly have more pieces coming this week. Its been a crazy week with the Grandkids, but I always love spending time with them. But I am hoping for a much more creative and productive week. I hope spring has arrived in your world and you all have a beautiful week. Gail

How very pretty, Gail. What good timing with 'Alice' things! BTW, I just listed a piece of 'Alice in Wonderland' fabric, vintage, I think - really neat. Great colors, etc.
Keep up your wonderful creativity!

Even with the grandkids, you are creative. The watch case is a great idea, love it. That's a cute idea for the bracelet, made me think a matching head band can't be too far behind.

Saw that you were at the luncheon today. I was so sad to miss it...but I wanted to tell you that I have been to Tillie's attic several times. I heard some changes were in store....are you working there, or consigning there? I don't get there often as I am in Buckeye....but I love to go to Front Porch....

Hello Gail and right back at ya!! It was my pleasure meeting you yesterday and what fun I had. I love it when we all get together and hopefully there will be many more. I am happy you enjoy your tags, I don't know what it is about those things, but I love them and can't get enough. Altho I make them, I also love to buy them. It's an addiction I tell you. I hope you have a great week and see you in blogland. I am going out of town this week to attend the Canton Flea Market in Texas, but when I get back I am going to visit your pretty shop and have a look around, Char

Oh Gail Sweetie...
What a beautiful pocket watch make over. You can make something from anything. What a talented lady you are. I love the blue color, just gorgeous and the little rabbit is just perfect. I love it.

Now taking that bracelet and adding the beautiful velvet ribbon, just so awesome. I love the addition of the roses also. What an element of surprise.

How is your daughter doing sweetie. I remembered her in prayer last night. Please keep me posted.

It was so lovely to put a voice and beautiful face with the blog name. I can't wait to meet with you again.

Country hugs and much love, Sherry
