Lucky charm (and lucky rabbits)!

Last day in Hull today but probably won’t land back home until late 🙁  Thankfully, I now have a little break before my next trip away but lots more travelling hither and thither until then.

Today I am sharing a little good luck charm that I have made using some images from the  Gecko Galz:

P1070175

You can probably tell that this is an altered domino and I’ve simply added this cute, cute image, from the Blarny (sic)  ephemera collection, to the front…

P1070178and another, plus some music manuscript and a stamped sentiment, to the back. I gave both sides a coating of Modpodge glitter.

P1070179

The sentiment stamp is from Darkroom Door. I’ve used a glue on bail.

P1070180

You can probably just make out that I added a strip of pale green gems all around the outside edge.

P1070182

The bail is threaded with ivory crochet lace and green ribbon. I’ve then attached some wired green beads and a little green flower gem.

P1070181

All that’s missing is a lobster catch so that I can attach it to my back so that I have good luck whilst I travel.

P1070176

One piece of luck I’ve had already was that I discovered a new naughty treat. Tesco in Hull were selling Reese’s peanut butter bunnies for Easter. How many did I buy? Well that would be telling, but let’s just say that if they sold chocolate hutches I could make good use of one!

Thanks for buzzing by.

  1. This is just so sweet and delicate. Fantastic job with this creation. Looking forward to celebrating the day, at age 64 I just discovered that my great grandparents were born in Ireland. After years of searching my 9 yr old grandson found it on Ancestry.com though I had looked there a zillion times. This would be so sweet on a jacket or coat.

    • Thank you Sandra and enjoy your celebrations. Oh wow, that is some discovery and how clever of your grandson. My maternal grandfather was from Ireland originally but it is only after he died that we got to know that branch of the family.

    • Thank you. Reese’s have not been so common over here but are getting easier to find. I’ve now found out there is a Ben and Jerry’s ice cream so that will be this weekend’s treat!

  2. this is so lovely. I have done pendants with mah jong (sp) tiles. I have dominoes but have never taken the time to work with them. I love this. It will be a great focal around your neck! Also love reeses! I have an addiction to them for sure lol

    • Thank you – I have hoarded dominoes for a rainy day!!! I really need to start using some. Reeses are not so common over here, but are becoming increasingly available, very addictive!!

  3. I find your altered dominos (and your altered lab slides) fascinating because they are so tiny and you manage to pack in so much detail, lots of things going on and your work is so neat. I love all of the sparkle and the row of tiny beads around the edge.

    I have never heard of peanut butter bunnies, but they sound wonderful.
