What's It Wednesday #86
I'm on a quest to get things out of boxes and drawers, and have them out where I can enjoy them, or out they go. A little “late” Spring cleaning, so to speak.
celluloid collars were invented so your shirt became a “dress” shirt, and the collar was always clean. (Even if the rest wasn't!?) The box is just gorgeous with this pretty lass on the front and the fancy fasteners So feminine, but they were made to hold men's collars. The top for collars and the bottom for cuffs.
I have a few beaded collars and wanted to use them in a special way. I took this old frame and lined it with lace. Then I displayed my gold beaded collar, (and a bit of bling of course!) That's all it took, and I was on a roll!
This was fun! I lined this gorgeous frame with burlap and an over lay of lace. I added three beaded collars with cameos as the fasteners ( That's a 2 for!)
I ran a strip of silk down the center so the collar backs didn't show. (There are labels there.) Not very romantic.
There you have it, out of the drawer and where I can enjoy them. Now are you hot under the collar, too?
