While on a school field trip in France, walking back to school, the art teacher asked us to gather a few things we thought were pretty pertaining to whatever we were studying ~ flowers, feathers whatnot...I cannot remember what the subject was...he was also the "French" teacher so it may not have even been an art project. However I remember specifically gathering a few dried up leaves and withered wild flowers. I remember him asking why. I don't remember what I said because it was probably in really bad French ;) but the rough translation was something about thinking they were pretty as they were....even if they were overlooked by others. I got a good grade :)
I thought of that yesterday when I made this business card wallet.
I had it completed when I noticed the tiny red thread on the back. Then, when I went to add the snap-I didn't have enough padding underneath apparently, and the 'pearl' cracked.
I think the thread may be "pickable"...and the snap still functions. It just has a 'crazed pottery' look.
Because I'm generally a bit persnickety with my projects it bothered me, but it's so pretty I thought I'd add it to the shop anyway. It does have a discounted price, so if you'd like a business card wallet with a bit of a story, still pretty but slightly imperfect-and at a great price, then this one may be for you ;)
Here's another bright, cheery treasury:
