While perusing an old tattered 1920’s magazine I came across an article about French fashion and began to cut out the tiny pictures of the Paris trends.
I happen to toss them into a box that held aged watch faces and a vintage Eiffel tower postcard. Together laying on the bottom of the shallow box I could see the emerging of a new art kit.
I took a copy of the postcard and punched the watch faces into it giving me the title " Time for Paris".
The colors in the kit was inspired by the vintage French trim made from genuine silver threads and the black dot silk ribbon. .
I also placed a few family treasures in this kit, pen nibs and an ink pen from the desk of my husband's grandfather and a silver deco pin from his grandmother.
Rose buttons from a jumper of mine that I use to wear all the time back in the 80's, I really loved that jumper. As well as some buttons from Aunt Alice's discarded button box.
This kit was in Somerset Life Summer 2009...
