These are the lapel pins I'm making from the vintage knife handles, they look wonderful on a blazer or a denim jacket or a tux for a wedding. Put a fresh flower in when they are in bloom or a piece of holly during the winter months. I love recycling or I should say upcycling old vintage silverware into wearable art. Back in the day these were called Tussie Mussie's. The gentleman with the pin on his tux was dressed for Victorian Days in Belvidere. It is held every September and the entire town comes out in full Victorian dress. Plus they hold an Antique Car Show and Victorian House Tours. It's quite the celebration!

Yesterday was the Summit Fine Art's and Craft's Show. The promoter and her crew were wonderful. They were there for your every need and did an incredible amount of advertising. There was great music and tons of people came out and they were buying. The great day came to a screeching halt when at four o'clock it got really dark and started pouring. I look forward to JC's next festival!
