Ab fab

My dear Blogging buddy Nathalie sent me this charming necklace in our latest QB5 swap. Nathalie altered a vintage bobbin complete with thread to create this message of hope. She actually has a Thread of Hope giveaway running on her blog right now and there's still time to enter the draw!


It arrived neatly packed in this little matchbox, so perfect in every way!


The second part of the swap was a brooch, and just look at this beauty! Nathalie's made hers out of three tiny fabric circles which she's decorated with lace and old buttons. The text is especially for me, apparently I say fabulous a lot, do I? really? The brooch is attached to an old library card, great title combining my favourite colours

Go and check out Nathalie's ETSY shop, she has loads of cool goodies looking for a new home!

Thank you again for my wonderful charm and brooch Nathalie, it's so fab (just had to say that!!)to be part of such a talented group of gals!

Your photography makes my things look FAB. :) The candy wrapper looks a little deflated. ;)
