{ Plunder }

While out & about for a little while today,
I just happened to go past my local antiques shop
(uh, yeah. right....not premeditated at alllll....)

I found an old red velvet pillow that had seen better days, so I turned the fabric into
these little strawberry make-do's on old porcelain door-knobs...


I found old MORE doorknobs, tin tart pans, teeny oil cans and funnels
that will soon become make-do's ~


...miniscule ironstone dishes and candlestand,
and an old tobacco jar full of buttons!

oh boy oh boy...
I am envisioning great things to come from these!

I will be updating my selling blog soon~
the update will have a MAKE-DO theme...
some pincushions, pinkeeps, dolls with patches made from early fabric, etc...

Look for the update announcement here in a week or so!


Blessings from the Farm,
Lori
