Book stands and lace hangies

Hello dear ones!

I spotted a book-holder in a store, looking like a triangle and it got me thinking, so I made one like it but mine is a page in half. I took some time and smiling, folded 1050 pages and then, my daughter liked it and wanted one for her teacher, so I folded 760 more. :) The great thing is I can decorate the in any way I please, so I used buttons and lace and materials. You can hold pictures, notes, posts or business cards. 

Then I got to making some wire eggs, where I stretched some delicate lace over them and made them into hangies. Then I added some pearls, flowers or jems. It's so easy and looks great on a branch or in a window, and you can make all shapes and sizes! 

Spring is slowly approaching and again, we will be wearing sandals and flip flops. The ideal creme to get our footsies into shape is applying a generous amount of Vics before bed and socks. :) It plumps your skin, gets rid of any cracks and as the greatest touch, the ingredients eliminate foot fungus! How awesome is that!? It takes one night to improve your feet and they will thank you for it and feel refreshed! And its cheaper than footcream too! All you have to do is wash it off in the morning. :) 

Thank you dears for dropping in and leaving me your sweet words,

Witajcie duszyczki mile!
Podpatrzylam w sklepiku takie ksiazkowe stojaczki zlozone kartki w trojkot,nie bardzo wiedzialam jaka maja spelniac role ale ladnie wygladaly.Ja zas  zrobilam tak samo ale kartki skladajac w pol.Tak sobie cierpliwie z usmiechem zlozylam 1050 karteczek a potem moja corcia poprosila abym zrobila dla jej pani mniejszy stojaczek wiec nastepne 760 karteczek =)Ozdobic mozna jak sie chce ja uzylam koronke i guziki. Moze sluzyc  do zdjec , kartek biznesowych lub na male zapiski.

Z drucika zrobilam owal jajka i obszylam koronkami.Zawieszki sa plaskie i wygladaja delikatnie. Mozna zostawic same koronki lub przyozdobic kwiatuszkami,brylancikami lub perelkami.Bardzo proste i latwe i ladnie wygladaja na galazce lub oknie.

Pomalenku zbliza sie wiosna ,niedlugo zaczniemy nosic sandalki ,klapki.Idealnym kremem aby odswiezyc i doprowadzic stopy do wygladu stopek dzidziusia jest najzwyklejszy VICS.Jest super nie tylko na zrogowaciala skore ale rowniez zapobiega wszelkim grzybica. i pekaniu pietPosmarowane na noc stopy juz na drugi dzien wygladaja lepiej,rano trzeba zmyc stopy z tluszczu jaki zostaje po vick.Tanio i naprawde efektownie.Wszelkie kremy i masci kosztuje drogo i nie zawsze spelniaja swoja role.
Kochani dziekuje za odwiedzinki i mie komentarze,Pieknej wiosny zycze i duzo usmiechu!

Love your new creations! I would love a tutorial on how you so neatly get the lace onto the wire frame! You always make such delicate treasures. Did you make the nest & eggs too? Awesome way to use a book too.
Blessings,
Cindy

Your eggs and book stand are equally stunning! I really want to make a book stand now, you have totally inspired me! And as far as Vicks for your feet, if you ever have a cough from a cold, slap the Vicks on your feet and you will get a good nights rest without waking up from coughing! Thank you for sharing Katherine, I am going to pin this so when I make 1 I will remember who to credit. ~Diane

Michigan will be getting into the high 40's this weekend (Detroit area) and the snow is melting. Once the lake melts I know spring has sprung. Have a great weekend!

What a wonderful idea with the book Katherine. I remember as a child my dad bringing one home that was folded like a Christmas tree.
And your eggs are a delight for the eyes.

Bardzo pomysłowa rzecz te książkowe stojaczki i takie... bardzo retro.
Zauroczyły mnie Twoje koronkowe jajka, są śliczne. Czy pozwolisz, Kasiu, że wykorzystam ten pomysł??? Jeszcze nie próbowałam takiej techniki z wielkanocnymi pisankami.
Też zamierzam w podobny sposób wykorzystać mini-foremki. zastanawiam sie tylko, jak je wyeksponować.

Miłej niedzieli i pogodnego tygodnia:):) PA!

Kasiu,
jak zwykle wszystko wygląda u Ciebie tak pięknie... podziwiam te "stojaczki" książkowe -za precyzję i cierpliwość przy składaniu.

życzę Ci pięknego dnia! u mnie od rana pada deszcz,jest szaro,buro i zimno,ale mam nadzieję,że dzięki temu zmyje się cały pozimowy kurz i brud i potem będzie pięknie i słonecznie! :)))
