The other day while searching for a box of craft items I found a whole lot more than I expected.
I came upon a box that has been in a cabinet for quite a while, so long ago I forgot what I put in it. I had to laugh when I opened it.
It was full of hair accessories that I had made (mostly tatted) back when my kids were much younger and I had long hair.
There are a couple of head bands and a snood as well as a lot of decorated barrettes. For some reason there were also several tatted pieces that have nothing to do with hair or even clothing accessories. I have no idea why they were in this box.
All of these barrettes are made of a metallic thread, I think the brand name was Kreinik, or something like that. I remember these threads were a real pain to tat with but they were so pretty. A lot of these are tatted over wire to give them their shapes. I know that I was trying a lot of different ideas at the time, some working out better than others. I think I wore more of these than the girls did :-)
I guess I'll put all of these back in the box for now. Maybe my granddaughter will want to play dress-up or something with these some day.
