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!

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!

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!
