Isn't this blue ear ring beautiful?
Not sure what I'll do with them yet but I love the scroll work on the newer key and
doesn't the other one look like an alien?
I had to have these watch faces! I love fonts and these were my 2 favorites faces.
I could only get two.
It was hard to pick.
At one ladies booth, she had a box full of vintage linens. I spotted the cute teal tablecloth and then digging down deeper I found the teal and yellow doilies. Hum. I think I can do something with these!
Then I remembered this pillow I had in my booth when I ran across this cutie.
See how the patterns match?
I will make a companion pillow to go with the quilted one.
I just love coming up with all kinds of creative ways to reuse and repurpose.
So this last weekend I began to put some stuff together.
Here is the 1st finished pillow.
I used the items I found in the box and then I found a vintage napkin I had so the doily would have a white background to separate it from the tablecloth.
This is the back. I couldn't leave it blank.
Can you see the cup ring stain?
I love that it was on the tablecloth, so I positioned it on the back so I could use it as an embellishment.
All of the buttons were in my Mom's collection.
I could not believe how well this one matched!
I also love it when things come together unexpectedly.
It's like it was suppose to happen.
Here is what I have so far.
Need to finish some and I have a bit more tablecloth fabric to make 1 more pillow.
This beauty was in a booth that I looked across the isle at ALL weekend.
They wanted $50.00.
On the last day I decided if it was still there I'd offer $35.00. I needed a different color pallet to offer my potential clients. Not everyone is into pink, green, teal and yellow.
Well they said $40.00.
I just had to have it.
I'm not sure when I'll get the inspiration to make things out of it but I am thinking on it.
So, for the time being I am going to start a personal inspirational photo, poem, thoughts journal. I have been seeing them on other blogs and with all the difficult things we have been facing I thought it might help me get my thoughts down and a crafty fun way seemed best.
I am going to try to put the pillows in a local coffee shop and some of the others in my Etsy store. If you would love to own these cuties or know someone who would, leave me a message here before I list them. Prices range from $10.00 to $15.00 for the pillows. You can see the others are on my older blog here
I'm off to bed for now and looking forward to starting my journal after work tomorrow!
