Old to Gold

It was all about shoes this week and what woman doesn't get excited over that? While not all of us have a hundred dollar shoe budget, all of us have shoes playing the game of hide & seek in our closets. It's time to usher them out of hiding especially these days when hanging on to our pennies is the name of the game. A fashion revival is in order! The formula is simple: clean, polish and accessorize! And accessorizing means looking through our craft boxes (ex. lace appliques, grosgrain ribbon, ostrich feathers) and jewelry cases (ex. vintage clip-on earrings) to fashion a new look:

Of course not! We don't waste things in this blog! What was a blah is now a...

Tada!...the gold buckle instantly glams up a simple wood bangle

From shoe buckle to belt buckle...another Tada!

Even wooden boxes deserve a little gold! All together now..."Tada!"

And as a final Tada!...I used the gold buckles as accent buttons for a linen pillow cover.

Have a good weekend everyone!
