Jetons d' Amour~Love Tokens
My dad found these great circa 1924 metal transit tokens in an antique shop a few months back. They are from Honolulu. I knew I would think up a way to use them, so I put them aside until it hit me. Yesterday, I came across them again and I realized they would make the coolest, vintage charm bracelet! I used only interesting and unique vintage buttons with the coins and I really love the way it came out. Here I go again wanting to keep everything I make, but I know the drill. I'll make something tomorrow or the next day that I'll love just as much and the pile grows! I can't keep it all, can I? No, seriously, can I? O.k, o.k!!. The bracelet is now in my etsy shop. The bracelet and findings are all made from sterling silver. Thanks, daddy! You have a great eye for cool stuff!
Oh! I missed blogging about our P&P book club Friday. We read chapters 3 and 4 (cue Mr.Darcy) and are now on 5 and 6. I love this book! Join in if you haven't already. There's still time to catch up easily. And,go on over to the tearoom blog and comment if you want to be entered for the free tea give-away I do each week. Darcy and tea make a great combo, don't ya think?
Have a great week everyone!
