As I was digging through boxes in the Atelier, hunting for the package of E6000 adhesive I've somehow hidden from myself, I came across some items I'd put in a box and forgotten about.  As you know, I enjoy adding tatting to various items- especially vintage ones.

This little beauty was once a clip-on earring.  It's finding had come off the back & it was in a plastic bag of miscellaneous vintage jewelry items at a local antique store.  Won't it be just gorgeous with a tatted edging around it???

And I found my vintage Coro pine cone brooch!!!  I really need to tat an accent for this one. Should I put it on a purse or one of my cloches?

Then there was this vintage blue brooch.  I think it needs a super-frilly edging.  Perfect for wearing on jackets and sweaters!

And the last thing in the box was this pair of earrings.  Jocelin found these at a local boutique.  I think she did great as they will be easy to enhance with tatting.

What do you like to add tatting to?   And where do you find it?
 I adore "junquing/antiquing" and hunting for goodies at boutiques and basically stores everywhere.  You never know when or where you may find a potential treasure.

Guess I'll head back into the Atelier and see if I can't find some thread to use with these and put them in the project box by my chair.  Have a wonderful day & feel free to comment and let me know what you like to add tatting to. 
Until tomorrow~
Happy Tatting!

  1. Oh, Rachel, you really have me thinking, now. There is a small city/town north of here that my husband and I visit. They have a lovely boardwalk - no shops - that hugs the shore line. In the town there is a shop that sells antique buttons, etc. The next time that we visit, I'll have to pay closer attention to the buttons that are for sale.
