get creative

While packing for the show in
Atlanta, I neglected to take any
jewelry with me.  I took jewelry
to sell...but none that I wear all 
the time.
BUT
I did bring a strip of old satin that
I had ripped off of a wool blanket...
needle....thread...scissors....
an old key and some buttons.
I made this.
(ignore the glass necklace, that is one I had for sale.)
I braided the torn strips of satin...made a flower from
grey knit  I had cut off my pants that were to long.
Hung an old key from the other side, (that you can't 
see.)   It was pretty fun....
A woman I met...told me this saying....
USE IT UP
WEAR IT OUT
MAKE DO
OR
DO WITHOUT.
Here is a sign in an Anthropology store
I found yesterday on the web.
We had to bundled up in 5 layers of clothing,
because it was 40 some degrees in the morning.
By afternoon it was in the 70's.  Beautiful
weather and such a magical setting.
This is a true representation of how I felt
to be there....
Happy.
