I finally got around to listing the Texas Tag Necklaces that I brought back from Antique Alley. There are a few more that are on my shelf at Room With a Past. If they don’t sell, I’ll be listing them later this week. You can see these and a lot more in my Etsy shop.
Yep, it’s a regular dog (tag) and pony (ribbon) show over in my Etsy shop! I’ve been having a lot of fun the last few weeks making necklaces and bracelets from old dog tags. Most have already sold but there are a few still available. I don’t think I’ll be listing anymore for about a week. Next week is the Room With a Past sale and I have to have something left to show there!
All the pieces are really vintage — tags, keys, and rhinestones (the chains and findings are new). This is one of my favorites. I love the flower shape. It would be great for someone born in 1960! …Just wait ’til you see the one I’m keeping!
I love these horse show ribbons, too. They’re great for craft projects or just hanging around as decoration. Use them as gift toppers for someone who loves horses! I especially like the ones that say “Calamity Jane” on them. Know anyone that would fit?
I’ve seen some fun ideas to use these in quilts and pillows. I just can’t bring myself to cut any of them. I also started a board on Pinterest for ideas of ways to display horse show ribbons. If you’re not already, come follow me on Pinterest.
I don’t have any of these bracelets in my Etsy shop right now. Some have already gone to Facebook fans who have requested specific dates. And I really need to save the ones I have now for Room With a Past. If you’re looking for a specific date — year of your birth, marriage, birth of a child, etc. — let me know and I’ll see if I have it. I can do different colors of beads, too.
BTW, our kitchen is finished but Monday the floors go in so the house is still a wreck! I’ll have photos when it’s all done. I can’t wait!!!
