Little acquisitions!

Do you ever buy something which you could have easily made yourself?

Well I did that recently!
I acquired these lovely tags, adorned with ribbons, lace and embellishments.
And on top of that,the seller had given them all names!
Here they are...too cute to take to pieces!

Pretty in pink and cream


Anchors Away


All that is Shabby


Baby Blue and Snowy White


Coffee and Cream

Little Girl Dress Up

Mary's Garden

Nature Lover


Raggedy Ann and Andy


Shirley Temple

Sweet Baby Nursery

You are my Sunshine

I've teamed them up with some vintage fabric pieces to pretty up my stall at various fairs!
I wonder which is your fave?

Interesting tags Sal - I think I like the last one best. I can always get ideas from your blog.

These things are very pretty, but do they serve any practical purpose - I'm not a crafter although I appreciate they are pretty to look at! Are they meant to be dismantled, the things then used in other craft projects? Enlighten me, please, someone!

Sal said...

Yes Margaret...they are meant to be dismantled and used in whatever way one wishes,for crafting...

I think that if you can present your goods in an attractive way,you have a much better way of selling them!!

And that's what this particular person has done.


galant said...

Ah, but Sal, what happens when they are too pretty to use, har, har! I think these are sooo pretty - I'd never want to dismantle them!

They are all fabulous, I'd have to have the lot! Such a simple idea but so very very delightful.

Take care

They are beautiful. My favourite is "You are my sunshine" because my Nan used to sing that and "Only 5 minutes more" with me sitting on her knee in front of the old range fire just before bedtime.
