Man-Fashion and More

 My husband, the pastor.  Our small church is not a formal one.
This morning, however, he donned a short-sleeve dress shirt and tie.
I asked him, "Why not wear one of your tie clasps?"
I'm not sure he remembered where they were, 
so I retrieved them---
this collection we've amassed over the years from thrift stores
and garage sales.
And here's a teaser!
I found two pieces made of this fabric at a garage sale this week.
Even the seller wasn't sure what they were, but she had a bedspread made of the material.
I brought them home and have ripped out the seams
(which were obviously sown by a diligent professional).
Now I have a VERY long piece of BEAUTIFUL, exotic fabric!
I have a plan.


  1. Are you going to make him a tie? lol .love Jan xx

  2. Love the fabric! Do not tell us of your plan. Just show us the results. It's more fun that way!

  3. Can't wait to see the Reveal on what your Plan for that Lovely Fabric is!?! I remember when my Dad had a vast Collection of Tie Clips and Cufflinks that he Collected from his many Worldwide Travels... I used to like to play with them as a Child... and my Mom's Bohemian Earring Collection. I Inherited the Earrings and my Brother Inherited the Man-Fashion.

    Thanks for your sweet comment about my Personal Space... slowly but surely I'm getting the house in Order and deep Cleaned... whew, what a Process! *LOL*
