Artful Thursday ~ Week 8

We are going to Gatlinburg for the weekend. As I was thinking of what I could bring to wear, I thought about a few of my jackets. And that got me thinking about once upon a time, I wanted to make a brooch out of some vintage millinery with this being Artful Thursday, I got started!

First, I had this poor, once beautiful flower...

You can see the wonderful velvet flower petals mixed in the flower

After a nice hot, steam bath, she was ready for her transformation!!

Gathering some extra fabric from around the house...

And playing in my jewelry box...

some playing a little more than others :0)

I now present you with Chloe!

Isn't she beautiful?!? I'm so excited about wearing her around town!

~Happy Artful Thursday~



  1. very did a great job

  2. Beautiful- I would like to make one sometime. Your little one is cute too!

  3. Have a wonderful weekend. No, I didn't make the brown velvet pillows. They are actually euro shams that I originally used on the bed. I bet you could make you some! I always use downfilled inserts. Just makes the pillows look prettier!

  4. Oh - we LOVE Gatlinburg - I am SO jealous! I want to go. Oh wait, your postwas about that lovely brooch you made, wasn't it? Very, very pretty!! Enjoy wearing it in Gatlinburg.

  5. Gorgeous...we were on the same wave length this week for artful thursdays... I made flowers too.

    love much more vintage looking.

    pretty paper posies

  6. That's awesome. I don't know if I could do it myself but it is very cool!
