Family Tree Project Part Six

Good afternoon everyone, hope you are well :-) I am here with part four of my Family tree project. If you havent seen my previous posts basically my grandparents left me a few albums of family going back to the Victorian era so I have decided to make a family heirloom of a scrapbook of our family tree. Its incredibly rewarding and fun to see the resemblances and change in fashions!
This page is of William who had sent this photo from France-I scanned and copied both the photo and the cute little message he wrote on the reverse because I felt this was a huge part of the story to this photo. Its dated 8th November 1916 so not far off a hundred years ago-bet he had no clue his photo would still be treasured now :-) I used a Basic Grey kit for this project because the vintage look to the papers really lends itself well to the whole idea of the project and fits with the battered old photos! :-)

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:

Home Decor Project-Beaded Curtain Tie Backs

Good afternoon everyone, hope you are well :-) I am here with my favourite home decor make in a while. My father made me a four poster bed as he had some spare wood and I have always wanted one! So my job was to sort out the curtains and the decor to go with it. The bed was painted white and I chose Turquoise organza for my curtains. I thought for a while what sort of look I wanted and had the idea to make beaded tie backs, I wanted an opulent look so I looked for a good mix of Turquoise and other assorted vintage metallic beads, gem beads and pearls which matched well.  I found a fabulous mix of odd beads on ebay, then bought some plastic rings for my hooks, and the rest I had in my stash.  I also used Tiger tail, crimp beads, crimp covers and my jewellery tools.  I wanted to keep them as random mixes so I made each differently. I started by doubling my tiger tail, and folding this over, then fixing the first ring with a crimp and covered this with the crimp cover. I then threaded m…
