Check THESE out!!! My OLD kitty cardigan clips complete with "pearls"! I think these were last worn when I was about 6 years old! I'm sure I was truly rockin' the shoulder-draped-cardigan-look! (Whatever!) Okay - lets be honest these are REALLY odd!
Even more odd is that I still have them. Just ask my sisters or my husband I am NOT a saver/hoarder. I delight in tossing out 'stuff'! I think the only reason these still exist is because they were 'saved' by my mother - who then "transferred " them to me in some deviously covert manner.
Vacant googly eyes, sequin noses, faux pearls. felt ears, fake fur and re-purposed GIANT earring backs! HEY- I should TOTALLY 'pin' this to PINTEREST as a DIY project! (NOT!)
Regarding the sequins. I have been inspired over and over by a dear blog friend who has a knack for using sequins on her cards! Every time I see one of her cards I tell myself ....NEXT card - I am using sequins! So Lynn! Thank you!
