Totally Smitten With Buttons and Birdcages

I’m completely enamoured with my fellow Thrift Style Thursday refashionista Miche of Buttons and Birdcages. She not only has amazing style but also an approachable & sincere personality that shines through in all of her beautifully photographed posts.

A Gothic Thrift Style Thursday

I’ve always loved goth style (+ the music that goes along with it) & although I’ve yet to have had the pleasure of going full Victorian Gothic I did dabble in a bit of Siouxsie and the Banshees style:

M o r b i d l y  M a r v e l o u s !

and 16 years later giving a bit of American Horror Story Supremeness

I absolutely love my thrifted & refashioned Coveted Coven Dress!

Sadly, after weeks of trying to locate the whereabouts of the Crafty Travelling Box I must admit defeat and gloomily announce the failure of what should have been a fun, international, multi-maker-sharing, stash-busting swap…

…but when have I ever let the silliness of others deter me?

N E V E R!

And so I announce the second edition of the Crafty Travelling Box!

*with a few extra rules to (hopefully) keep the box updated & on the move

Wanna join in?
