I have always loved vintage fashion. It is so feminine, pretty, lady-like. I love dress and heels with little cardigans. For the book signing, I wanted a 50's feeling outfit and was looking a vintage sweater clips. I looked and look and decided I did not want to pay $15.00 for one. In my usual rebellious, do-it-my-way attitude, I made my own. It was sooo easy and cheap (about $1.00).
All you need it alligator clips, a length of chain (an old necklace would work), jump rings, glue and old buttons or jewelry or some vintage finding. Really the sky's the limit.
Figure out the length of your chain you want and cut it. Attach the chain to a hole in the alligator clip with a jump ring. Then glue your button onto the front of the clip. That is it. Sooooo easy!!! Sweater clips are very trendy right now. With a pretty cardigan, it would make a perfect Christmas gift!!
I also want to give a thank you to my dear (sweet) friend Theresa and Art & Beth @ Glass of Many Colors Stained Glass Studio, for the beautiful glass wind chimes I won. I have to say, I did not know there was so many pretty types and colors of glass. I found it fascinating looking at them and they make such a beautiful sound. Thank you so much!!
