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!

These are great alterations for sure!
Going Thrifting is one of my favorite pastimes and when you can take something and make it into something else, well that is just wonderful!
