Eye glass case, Tea Bag Tag Clips, Fairy Skeletons

I bought a new pair of drugstore magnifying glasses, but I didn't like the case that came with them, so I made one out of canvas, then painted it.  I ended up lining it with some black felt, which feels nicer.

TBag clips teapots (2).JPG

I made these from place card holder teapots and beads.  You clip them onto your tea bag tag to keep it from getting pulled into the tea pot or cup when you pour the boiling water into it. 

I like the skull one, of course.


This was my first Tag Clip, with a teapot charm from Michael's.  Jo Forrest 2018.

Little fairy skeletons

hang naked in the trees,

you can't mistake their buzzing for the buzzing

of the bees.
