bits & pieces

stamps & buttons bits & pieces

I've been working on a series of small collage pictures using my vintage stash of postcards, letters, lace, trims, buttons and beads. I'm really enjoying making them, creating a little story with these bits and pieces. I'm just finishing this one off by adding a few more beads.
I'm planning to frame them up in white washed wooden frames.
I bought some purple Viola flowers today, so I'm hoping the weather will stay nice so I can plant them in pots for the living room window sill.

Thanks for all your kind comments about my work, they're always lovely to read. x
