More roses. EB had a photo on her blog that reminded me of these pretties (actually it's on her banner now but she changes it all the time so you might miss it). My grandfather, whose name we borrowed for our daughter Fallon, and affectionately called Bumpa, had these in his safe deposit box for years as they are silver, even the food-touching part. He and my grandmother gave them to me - probably because I was the first to get married, and became a "W". My silver chest is an eclectic collection of monogrammed silver from both sides of my family, in addition to pieces added from friends, and others found in dusty shops, brought home and shined up. I cave for anything with "M" or "W". I love setting the table with all the various pieces - reminds me of all my loved ones.
Some messing around with Photoshop. Fun to try out the different options. I've printed some of these on transparency to put in my journal, and will write down the stories behind each silver pattern and engraving.
Speaking of "M"s, scored this custom necklace from ETSY. It is the coolest bezel I have ever seen on a typewriter letter. Love when an artist finds a way to Make It Your Own. And these tags rock too.
Visit Elizabeth's shop for all the cool stuff she makes with typewriter keys, watchparts, and....well, just go to KeysandMemories.etsy.com And then pop over to see Kelly, and scoop up several batches of wonderful patterned die-cut doo-dahs for your journal at The Paper Pixie.
The scene from here.....no school today! I have the new Somerset Studio, the March Vogue (over one inch thick!), the Oscar Special Vanity Fair, and Illusive 2 (I've already listed 30 sites to visit from this book!) Who needs food?
