{ Velvet & Wool }


I love the look of old faded fabrics,
and especially love to use them in my displays and/or artwork...

so when I found these old velvet Victorian photo albums,
I had to purchase them for their worn & loved, dark look...
i just wish I could have found them with all of their antique photo's intact!
aren't they gorgeous?

and yes, I am a self-diagnosed Tactophile...
anything with texture of any kind will eventually find it's way into my hand...
that's why I love working with wool so much,
whether it has been processed,
or left raw,
carded
or
turned into roving...

I made these necklaces from hand-dyed needle felted wool:
they'll be available in my etsy shop:
http://www.notforgottenfarm.etsy.com/
they're perfect to wear with a sweater and jeans...


some are on a length of sheer black ribbon,
some are attached to tiny bottles
and hang around your neck from waxed black cord...
all are spooky sweet!

the little bottles are cool,
because you can slip in a spell or two!!

Blessed be, friends~
