ABOUT
I created ” Charlotte”, from vintage cloth, hand – sewn and wrapped with vintage satin ribbons, crochet scraps and metallic silk threads. The necklace is embellished in places with Victorian bone beads, faux pearls and a 1800’s antique buckle up one side. This buckle was dug from the goldmines in Victoria, Australia.

Another buckle, Victorian, lay below, together with, a decorative metal fan shape with leaf embossing, a vintage glass bead in rose, a vintage, “Mother of Pearl” embellishment with an antique French doily attached to a hammered found tin, cap. Finished with a touch here and there of doily scap and antique tulle netting in antique cream.

French Paper Napkins. Napkin Transfers.

My Beautiful French Paper Napkins


I love to collect napkins . These ones are very special to me and would have to be my favorite ones. Each napkin is covered in little rabbits, squirrels and reindeer with children playing in the snow, wearing colorful hats, coats and hand mittens.

Story behind these napkins…
I found these beautiful paper napkins in Paris. I bought them for our Xmas dinner at my son-laws parents in 2009. We had 11 courses of decadence consisting of colorful seafood terrains, Brittany crabs, lobster, chicken voulavents, duck, venison, deserts and to finish it all off, a huge chocolate buche covered with little ceramic ornaments. All this, while watching the Eiffel Tower lights twinkling out the window. I’m very spoilt when I live in Paris.

 

Paper Napkin transfers are fun too… check out this video
