Necklace Therapy

So, it was a crazy past week. Crazy because hubby fell very ill and work still required him to be at the office even though it wasn't physically possible for him to continue. So, he was given a choice and we feel he has made the right one. Why work for someone with such Machiavellian tendencies? Hubs lost 4lbs in one week but now he's resting, plus he gets to spend more time with our son. 


While hubs was recovering, I managed to slip in a tiny crafting session just to calm myself and reflect on this nonsense, okay, crap (sorry for being so curt but that's how it all felt).



I saw a lot of lovely collar necklaces on Pinterest that I had to make my own. I took the collar that was snipped away from the snowflake dress I made and added some lovely vintage lace. Sewed on a hook and an eye, and clipped on some necklaces. Voila!   I feel a lot better now :-)

  15. I knew there was something I could do with the collars of the men's shirts I've been cutting up for quilts. Have 10 of these just ready to be made into lovely orange, peach, blue and yellow necklaces. Think they would make great items for our Relay for Life fundraiser efforts at my church as well.

    Now to look at Good will for necklaces to attach to the collars. :) What a cute idea!!!

    1. Please do not make this item for your bazars, goodwill finds, etc. AGY notes we cannot use the necklace for profit!

  17. Cute necklace! I love your ideas for re-purposing and creating new pieces. It's amazing how an old clothing piece and lace can go a long way!
