My latest obsession is the collage barrettes that I have made.
For me, inspiration comes from many places.The past couple of days I have spent inside because of the weather so it gave me some time to sort through and reorganize my tackle box. I came across things that would be great as a center piece in a barrette collage. The pink and blue piece in the barrette pictured above came from the bottom of a dirty sewing basket. I wonder how it made its way to the bottom, out of site until I came and rescued it. The big crystal piece came off of a vintage ring I bought from a local shop. The 2 flowers that are tucked under it were screaming for me to buy them on Etsy. My Mom has memories of buying the kitty button to use in a project for my baby clothes or accesories. The pink button that looks cute with it was bought when I went to a Piano Camp and stopped in a tiny antique store on the way. The first barrette shown displays some of my unique buttons that I have collected over the years from Estate Sales and fleamarkets.
