*****Vintage Finds for Home and Garden*****

Tuesday, February 23, 2010


I jinxed myself when I said awhile ago that I haven't been sick in a long time~~Well, the Dr. told me this morning that I have a sinus and upper respiratory infection!! Needless to say I have been feeling pretty darn LOUSY!*%$& The only consolation is I have been getting some crafting done while I'm supposed to be "resting". Does anyone recognize this little cutie?!?
This little darlin' happens to be the mother of Anne from Fiona & Twig!! She was generous enough to share this sweet image with us and I knew I wanted to use it in one of my projects as soon as I saw it!!
So I made a collage in an old drawer~~
great old vintage crusty-kinda rusty handle!

Used the pages from an old school reader, added some coffee-dyed lace, an old baby spoon and pair of shoes.

These lovely gals adorn an old platter.

I found this vintage embroidery hoop and did a collage with a lovely old photo. I've been trying to keep busy without actually "working" since my ambition would fill a thimble!! Did you ever notice how dirty your house looks when you're sick?!? I guess the dust bunnies will have to wait!!


  1. Hope you are feeling better soon! I love your projects, I was working on a collage today, too!

  2. So sorry to hear you're feelin' crummy, but you've made some really beautiful art. That image of Anne's mom is so sweet, love what you did with it! OOhhh and that drawer, love the patina. Feel better soon!

  3. Hi Julie!!! I'm so very sorry you're sick, please rest and take very good care of yourself. Such beautiful creations you've finished!!! I love them all and how precious to have made Anne's mother's photo into such a beautiful piece!! I hope you're on the mend soon, hugs and love, Dawn


I truly appreciate each and every word!! Thanks for stopping by!!
