Dream Curio Display

Hi All,

Just a quick post to say that I am going away on holiday for a week ... we're going to Rome!!! What bliss, we haven't been on holiday in a while, and I am hoping that it doesn't rain too much! I promise to take lots of pictures and share.

Here's what I have been upto. I've been playing with  some Prima Marketing goodies I bought a while ago :)

Embellishments from various Prima  lines - This case in its former life used to be a thimble display ... and a bargain from an antique shop!
 I've made a few more projects using all the lovelies that I bought from Craftie Charlie who have amazing customer service as they helped me out when I had a spot of trouble with my order. Check them out! They keep updating their  catalogue on an almost weekly basis! I'll try to share the other projects over the next few weeks after I come back.

Oh and I'm entering this into the Simon Says Stamp and Show challenge called Anything Goes!

Thanks for peeking in and have a great weekend! :)


  1. Its beautiful.Love it.The look of the display case is so different now.There is something about the buttons isn't it.I have dont know how many stashed too.Keep it up.Have a wonderful holiday.Bless you.

  2. Fantastic piece of art Tania, You'll have to take a photo of where you put it, it would be sad if it was kept ina cupboard

  3. I love how you've given new life to an old thimble case! It absolutely looks fantastic! What an awesome little piece of magic you've created! Enjoy your holiday to Rome! Thanks for joining us at Simon Says Stamp and Show. <3 Candy

  4. Lovely altered piece Tania - like Sue say's, please don't hide it in a cupboard x

  5. That's gorgeous! I saw a thimble case at a local auction on Thursday & I'm sorry now that I didn't bid for it. :) I hope this beauty is hanging on a wall in your home by now.

  6. Thanks for the comments everyone!

    Kirsten: my local antiques dealer gets them for me and I can get a good bargain too as I usually buy more than one at a time :)

  7. Hi, your display is beautiful, this is just the sort of thing I have been looking for. If you can get me one at a reasonable price, I would be over the moon.

    Maybe you could let me know -

    Hugs and happiness Jan x

    1. Hi Jan, I'll keep an eye out for another one and let you know! x
