Vintage Inkwell Bottles for Vendor Night at Downton


I cannot believe "An Affaire at Downton" is just under 2 weeks away! I am not lying when I tell you I have been preparing for this event for almost a year! I had no idea when I began that it would take up so much time and so much thought! It has been a wonderful experience and I am sooo happy to say that I am fully prepared and wont be staying up till the wee hours of the morning the night before I leave trying to finish my kits!! Yeah!!!

On opening night of the event there will be a cocktail party and Vendor market where I signed up to sell my wares. :)

Among some yummy supplies and extra class kits, I will also be selling vintage inkwell photo holders. I spent the weekend making these and plan on making a few more too.

 They are all made using the inkwell bottles, solder, lace, rhinestones, crystals, German glass glitter and Vintage bling... really all the things I LOVE to play with!!


I'm even thinking there might be class this summer here at Casa Valentine!!!!
(stay tuned... I'll let you know. :)

Hope you all had a wonderful Easter Weekend. 
See you Thursday for Sweet!!!
