I also bought some genuine vintage stamps! Here is just a little sample. I think I love them too much to use them. Why must I always do this to myself?? Now I'll be tortured with the thought of actually using them and removing them from their brothers and sisters and their safe plastic slip home...
Here's the stamp I ordered for my shop from CraftPudding on Etsy. I'm so happy with it, and Magda was so easy to work with. Thanks again!
I've told a few people the story of this bottle recently, but here it is for all: In middle school I introduced myself as Jenny Holbrook to one of my new classmates and she said, "No way! My Grandma's maiden name is Holbrook. I bet we're distantly related. Ha Ha." Around the same time, my Holbrook grandfather was doing some geneology research, and what did he find out? That there's a town in Kentucky called Holbrook, where his family originates, and that's also the town my friend's grandmother lived in. Cool? Cool!! So she ended up giving me this old bottle she had at home from that grandmother, with "Holbrook & Co." written on it! I like to invite people over and tell them that I own a very successful liquor company... :)
And here's a glimpse into what I've been working on:
A necklace for myself.
The Renaissance Rose Earrings, soon for sale in my shop and on consignment at the store.
The Shooting Star Earrings.
The Blueberry Hill Earrings.
