With Hinge and Tags

Some time ago I came across a tiny old hinge
at a flea market, and I knew exactly what I wanted to use it for

and since then I have been hunting for more.
I haven´t found more at flea markets yet
but I did find some that could be used
in my husbands gems in the cellar....

I don´t think he´ll miss them though
you see - they are a bit rusty too
they must have been there for some time...
naaaa - he won´t miss them

so, using tiny key, lots of ribbons
and lace

old paper
and some grunge tags

I have been having fun creating
Tiny French Inspired Tag Books

inspired by all those beautiful
garden journal I see around in blogland

instead of garden and nature
I keept these french inspired
and had great use of my newly bought
Cavalli Stamps too

just need to go hunting for some
more of those hinge now
so I can create more tiny tag books.

Thank you so much for visiting
over here today and
I wish you all a wonderful weekend.

Tina ♥♥♥

De er simpelthen fantastiske. Måske jeg skulle gå ud og lede i mandens bunker, derude på værkstedet, han ville da nok heller ikke opdage det:-)
