Some New Projects

HI everyone!  I wanted to share two projects that I just finished.  I love creating these ephemera holders (I don't know what else to call them)!  I just Modge Podged some papers/vintage bird images and hot glued a nest, butterfly, laundry clips, flower, and buttons to a piece of painted wood.  I added some ephemera and a vintage flower to the laundry clips.  So easy and a lot of fun!  The second project is an old, decorated ladder.  The pieces of wood were done just like the ephemera holder.  I just added the 7 gypsies clips to the top of the wood plaques and hung them from cup hooks.  I had the ladder in the basement for a year and I finally got around to making something with it.  I saw this a version of this ladder somewhere, but I don't remember where??????  Thank you for looking and have a great weekend!

Altered Flea Market Finds

Hi everyone!  On a recent shipping trip to Morris, IL, I found a few things that I decided to alter.  When I found this super cute match holder, I immediately knew I wanted to do with it.  I love the pink color, so I decided not to paint it.  I then decided on Marie Antoinette theme.  I used a pretty paper image glued on top of some vintage French paper and a painted wood tag.  I added Prima flowers, Cavallini stickers, pom pom trim,  moss, tiny bird nest w/eggs, two bird magnets from Paper Source, and pretty vintage ribbon.   I then altered an old door knob.  I first glued some moss on top of the knob and glued the adorable, rusted bird house from Whimsy on top of the moss.  I added a Prima flower and a bird magnet from Paper Source.  I love how both my latest projects turned out!  As always, thanks for looking!

Bird Mini Canvases

Here are two more canvases I created.  I had these two neglected bird images sitting on my table forever waiting  to be used.  They fit perfectly on the canvases.  For the background I used some paper scraps and two Martha Stewart fern stickers.  Thank you for looking!
