If you love tatted lace, jewellery, plants and anything handcrafted, come back often.
I will regularly post items that are made by me, plants that I grow and interesting things that I photograph.
It's so cool to know that my sweet yellow hairpin has traveled all the way from Singapore to Pittsburgh PA - and arrived very quickly! Thank you SO MUCH for this very special gift! The photos don't quite show how very perfect and delicate the tatting and beads are in person! I still don't know how you got the thread through the tiny holes in the filigree! Believe it or not, I chose the yellow color to match our classic car ('69 Pontiac GTO), and I will be proudly wearing it on my black visor at the car shows (or on one of my black jackets) so it can be seen by the many spectators who come to see the cars. I often tat at these events, so I will be able to explain how the internet has brought about this special connection among tatters, literally from around the world!
Hi Kathy,How cool!! Would you share a photo of you and your car with the hairpin?
I've received it today!! Opened at the post office and put on my hair ))))Thank you so much! I love it ))
Hi Elena, So glad you liked it.
Definitely will share a photo with the hairpin! We're hoping to go to a show tomorrow (if the weather cooperates)! It's a big one with at least 1,000 cars (every Friday!) It's almost like a carnival atmosphere with lots of visitors. I have a couple of photos of the car on my blog. Just type "GTO" in the search box.
They're all so pretty! Two of my daughters use hair pins all the time. I've never been able to get them to stay in. I don't know if it's because my hair is too thick, or if I just don't know how to use them! Anyway, congratulations to the winners! I'm sure they'll all look lovely in their new finery!
Those are great hairpins! And great colors too! :)
My purple one arrived a couple days ago, and I just love it! Have just the perfect outfit to wear it with, too. Thanks! (Having computer problems for several days now. Hope I can get it worked out soon.)
They're beautiful! I don't use hairpins, but seeing them makes me wish I did!
I am so glad all three have received their tatted hairpins. Thank you all for your wonderful comments.
