Butterflies


As promised in the previous post, here are the results of our butterfly experiments!


The spoons are 'unheaded' and have vintage finds as heads, to prevent scary looking insects we used a vintage watch face, vintage rhinestone and a large vintage rose.


The wings are all made with vintage fabrics and lace, and as you know the bodies are vintage silverware, recycling at its best :)
The butterflies will be listed in the coming days in our giftshop.

Our Creative Space...


Mariposa : Any insect of the family lepidoptera.
This is all the information to be had about butterflies in this spanish encyclopedie from 1934. But what it lacks in the info department is made good by this beautiful litho.
It was all we needed for our new project involving old silverware that may be from 1934 as well!



Wire, lace, gauze and old findings put together will give us some very special lepidoptera indeed...




The old silverware have amazing details. We'll show you the end results soon!

Boiled Brains


We did know that it was thursday yesterday, but because of the heat we totally forgot Our Creative Space, sorry for that but we are blaming the heat and boiled brains :)
The heat didn't stop us creating though and to make up with you we wanted to show you our two newest bags, freshly made and soon available in our bagshop.
The first is made for this week's challenge of the EuropeanStreetTeam with the theme Circus.
The second is a super cute pouch all made with vintage and recycled materials.



P.S.  Estella's title for this post is by the way also the name of a turkish very popular soup, 'kelle pa├ža', which main ingredient is exactly that, boiled brains, of the sheep, in that case.
It is usually consumed in the night or early morning, specially after a heavy drinking and it is supposed to help prevent a hangover. I don't know why. Maybe it makes you puke??
If you insist, I can give you the recipe.
