I made this lucky horseshoe for the Bride of the wedding I went to with my Mum a couple of Saturday's ago... (I blogged about it here)

I started by drawing freehand a horseshoe shape on some cardboard and cut it out...I then covered it with ribbon and sewed it into place...I then found my trusty old friend 'the glue gun'! I had forgotten how brilliant that thing is for sticking stuff...I whiled away the time sticking new and vintage buttons to the shoe, I occasionally glued my fingers to the shoe too...Phew that thing is hot! :)

 But as I carried on and detached my fingers! QUICKLY began to look beautiful...
As well as buttons I attached paper flower elements and resin cabochons with lace and diamonte's...I created it in the evening and Freddy had already gone to bed...but in the morning, he told me that it was beautiful and that he wanted to keep it for our bedroom...(bless)

...and here it is...all finished and ready to take to the Wedding for the Bride and Groom on their wedding day...I made it to match her Wedding colours and it did perfectly!

What a lovely gift and so easy to make....ALTHOUGH the Bride only had it on her wrist for about 5 minutes before it was chucked on a table and covered up by table flowers, so that no-one else could see it! lol! I don't think they get me!

Still its the thought that counts don't you think?

I think it is beautiful. If you made that for me I would treasure it. But as you say the thought counts. Handmade things are so lovely. You are one kind lady. X

It is gorgeous! Maybe you should have grabbed it from underneath the flowers to take home for your sweetheart! They probably would never have noticed. xxo

What a fabulous gift - I would have treasured it for ever. In this commercial world that we live in not everyone appreciates a handmade gift - I think that you are very talented, you did a great job.

Such a neat idea! Good for you! Some times others don't appreciate things in the same way as we do! Oh Well, we enjoy doing it anyway!
