A 'Missing White Wednesday' white post

Somehow this Wednesday morning isn't quite the same. I had always looked forward to turning on the pc and heading over to the Faded Charm blog to check out all the white loveliness and occasionally to post some beautiful whites myself. But White Wednesday is no more. So, just for me, and perhaps the ones of you who also participated in WW, I gave in to the urge to photograph something white, lol. 

I had this English wedding tiara for a very long time. I bought it many years ago at an English car boot fair. Isn't it just the most beautiful thing? Gorgeous wax flowers, tiny silvery beads, sparkly diamante, silk wraps, this is a real antique treasure. It is still very dull and grey outside, so the photos don't really do it justice -








A few sewing supplies for a little project I am working on -




Something totally different now. Kimberly from ArtJoyStuff started a new ATC swap a couple of weeks ago. The link is on my sidebar if you want to find out a bit more about it. But basically, she would like to swap one ATC per week for the next 52 weeks with a different artist each week, so that she ends up with 52 ATCs from 52 different people. I was lucky enough to be the first this week to put my hand up for the swap, woohoo, and this is the ATC I made for her -

Winter Fairy







I used some beautiful vintage Swarovski trim at the bottom of the ATC, glittered the fairy's wreath, necklace and her wings with a Gelly Roll pen, used some vintage flowers and some funky snow flakes, and a snippet of satin ribbon to pick up the colour of her wings. I hope Kimberly is going to like it.

I really don't say it often enough, I should say it every day really, thank you all so much for visiting my blog, leaving comments and keeping me going. It would be a lonely place without you gals :-).

The tiara is exquisite! It's in excellent condition, considering its age and fragility.
