Inspired to have a go at the Let's Get Shabby challenge. Beautiful blog. Also inspired by the love I'm feeling for my scrappy vintage bunting from the last post...I thought I'd use some leftovers. In my desperation to make the deadline tonight, I had to take a night time shot. Of course the flash causes havoc so my pic is VERY dodgy. I'll take another one tomorrow okay!

Sooo the criteria...use three things from your sewing basket, one must be a pin.

1. gold safety pin

2.vintage buckle

3. press studs

and for good measure, a pin, one of the buttons, cotton, and the brand peeled off an old cotton reel. I have popped a letter to Lulu in the little envelope, all about our baby girl at 11 months. The journalling is taken straight from our family blog.

Edited to add a daylight picture
