I have been having fun creating new things
with some beautiful old things.
I found a group of vintage beaded flowers
They were in need of some love and attention.
I took a few of them apart
and re-imagined them into something new.
Each has been given a vintage rhinestone button
and circle of vintage lace for a center,
and a set of beautiful chocolate brown velvet leaves.
This is how they looked when they entered my life.
A bit dated,
I am guessing circa 1970?
I like to think I have improved them,
but now, what to do with all those beaded leaves and centers?
That's a project for another day.
