This was one of those items that you
stash - and think - i know i can do something
with this sometime ...
A wooden thimble cabinet 13" x 10" .
I liked all the niches - but decided to take it apart
as i also bought 2 smaller versions -
and i wanted to create something for myself .
My own magpie`s nest assemblage -
What else ! ??
As the magpie is reputed for collecting
items - just like myself - i had a
vintage image i wanted to use for a while .
Filled with things i love -
favourite papers - buttons - trims .
The buttons are sewn on stiffened
fabrics - mounted in photo corners -
so i can change them - it was difficult
choosing my favourite buttons to display -
i have so many - and why have them stored
away , when you can display them right ??
And they`re the ones i do not want to use !
I made a nest for a corner - an egg -
and loose treasures - to exchange when i wish
And the top arch of the assemblage " house "
space to display various trinkets -
like my vintage buckle and embroidered brooch .
A large art nouveau button and
cute girl scarf ring . These last 2 photos are
