Things Made from Vintage Things

hello there! it has been too long, much has happened in my absence. lets see: got sick, had a sick baby, went on a trip, got lots of vintage stuff, oh and found out we're having another baby! needless to say i have been full. full to my hairline.
but i thought i would take some time and share a new project with you all! i am about to open a new etsy shop (well two actually, but you'll have to wait for the second). and you get the first sneak peak.
all of my items that i will be selling are made of mostly vintage materials..... like 90% i am very proud of this. not only is is recycling and reusing, it is giving old things that would have been thrown out new life. here is a tasty sample pack of what you will see at my shop, crafty britches.
  hair clips with a headband. the headband is made from vintage T's
 a hair clip made from vintage felt and button. the feathers are not vintage dont worry:)
more vintage clips made from buttons and old pennants.
a clip for special nights that you need a little glitter, made from vintage felt and rhinestones
 vintage paperclips with fun vintage buttons on top, to jazz up your work space.
these paper numbers are from a cool old math game that i found. i love them!

notebooks made from entirely vintage materials. even the thread i used to sew the binding is vintage!
and THIS, my friends, is my banner for my shop! isnt it great? my bestie designed it for me, i took the picture and i absolutely love it!! keep your eyes and ears open, folks. i will let you know once everything is up and running.
