my collections


I was experimenting with my camera (nikon D7000) last week … i am the person who loves and cherishes small things that were either given to me or bought my self … every little item has special value to me …

image above: my new threads from Angela Liguori … I have so many ribbons from her already and couldn't resist buying some spools of this gorgeous wrapped cotton thread too , the spoon I bought in china town and the felt brooch was a present from Arounna from Bookhou a long time ago … she should be selling these too don't you think?

image below: new ribbon from fog linen work, the brooch again 🙂 , paper stars given to me by Jurianne Matter the first time we met, a little candle holder that i bought in a thrift shop and the copper key is from an old clock my parents had at home and a glimpse of one of my new fog linen trays

Hope you like my little gems too …

    Irene, how do you like that camera, and does it take good videos? I’m in the market for a new one.

    Its looking like antique collection. Really inspiring me. The thread spool is unique and fancy.

    Thank you for the compliments!

    Louise: I am using manual…. trying not an expert!

    Aran: very happy with the camera. If you put the camera on a tripod when using video than the result is SuperB! Very high quality!
