Silly Old Suitcase

Are you sitting down? You are in for such a treat. I found this talented woman at a blog called Silly Old Suitcase, and you will not believe what she makes. What I'm about to show you. And yes, she has an Etsy store. 

Here's what she writes on her blog...

Hello ... Hello ...

I'm Maartje.
Zeeland in South Limburg.
Mother of three lovely girls.
Wife of a sweet man.
Own a head full of ideas and a crazy old suitcase filled with treasures.

silly old suitcase

In the attic, I once found a crazy, old suitcase. This case is like a treasure chest filled with the finest gold. The content makes me happy, fabric, buttons, beads, paper, recipes, retro and vintage treasures...

 Every day I open the suitcase and then I find so much beauty and inspiration to make things and write about. I cherish this crazy old suitcase suitcase filled with treasures ...

And now...just enjoy...

You simply will not believe all the jewelry she makes. It is beyond stunning.


Becomes this...

Becomes this...

And ends up this.

This woman is a master with fabric and yarn and beads. Has your jaw simply dropped? You can close your mouth now. A fly might fly in.

Go to her blog and you will see.
