Notions and Vintage Goodies...

In mid November, I posted about some vintage notions and goodies that I had won over at Create HOPE Designs. The parcel arrived ages ago and I'm finally getting around to showing you the fabulous things that arrived; all donated by Kristy from Hopeful Threads.

Yes, ALL of the above arrived in the one parcel!!!... and it's all MINE!!! I thoroughly enjoyed discovering all the things that were packed into the parcel. Thanks so much, Kristy!!!

Earlier this year, I participated in the Retro Pillow Challenge and the Solids Only Tote Challenge, run by Keren and Rikka, from Sew la Vie! and Ricochet and Away. In January, these two girls are hosting yet another challenge; the Naughty Notions Challenge. I had so much fun in the previous challenges, I definitely wouldn't miss this one. Here's the brief, taken straight from the Naughty Notions Challenge home page.

Should you accept this challenge, you will be required to make a clutch bag (or a small handbag), using lots and lots of notions.

Why "Naughty Notions"? Because they pile up and create a huge stash, that's why!

Here's your chance to put those notions to use big time. Buttons, beads, snaps, ribbons, cord, eyelets, hooks and eyes, zippers, lace trim... have I left anything out? Go overboard! Make your clutch bag all about the notions.

If you would like to join me in the Naughty Notions Challenge, head on over to the home page to sign up. You won't regret it.

I have no idea what I'm going to make yet, but, thanks to my win, I now have lots of fabulous notions to get me started.


  1. What a great variety of items you received! The challenge sounds interesting. I'm going to consider joining in on that one.

  2. OMG! I have so much spare stuff lying around the house simply because my mama won't throw it away. Now I have good use for them, will definitely try my hand at this!
