Haberdashery Blog Hop Reveal

Haberdashery Blog Hop Reveal Today

Today is the reveal date for the jewelry designers' challenge in which we were tasked with using items typically found at a haberdashers, i.e. (according to, a dealer in small wares and notions, or a retail dealer in men's furnishing such as ties, shirts, gloves, socks, and hats.  The three items I worked with are ribbon, buttons and garment pins.  I tried combinations of all on this piece, but ended up using only buttons.  My old stand by.

This is the last blog hop I'll do this year, and it was one of my favorites because I got to redesign a piece I'd started months ago, use my favorite shade of pink (as close to red as possible, LOL), and use a favorite component; buttons.  Particularly, vintage buttons from my Mom's old box and MOP buttons.  Oh yeah, and I love to use rhinestones, hee hee.

Below the photo are the other participants in the hop.  After today take some time to check out the 34 or so other participants and enjoy the eye candy! Some were much productive than me, and all were creative! Thank you to our blog hostess Melissa Trudinger!
