Do you like Bling?
Do you like pretty fabrics?
Do you love vintage???
Well, it's all here!
I once saw a photo of an awesome display of lovely brooches all displayed on pretty fabric covered books. I can't find the source of the picture, but have drooled over it for many months.
If you happen to know of the picture I'm referreing to, please please let me know!
Here is my attempt at a similar vignette:
I found a source for some samples of vintage materials last summer and have finally used them for this display.
Using small paperback books (because my material pieces were smallish), I gently folded the fabric over the book covers. (Remember covering our textbooks in school??? THAT lesson came in handy!!)
I pulled out some blingy items from here and there, some lovely pink pearl beads, and some of my favorite buttons. Also, there are some dried cockscomb and roses added.
The abalone shell is one that I've had from childhood...and recently unearthed it from my garage!The little heart pillow I made years ago, and in the first picture, a purple pillow I made while I was in Junior High! It seems I just can't throw anything away!
It's time for Pearls and Lace Thursday!!! Do you have something pretty you'd like to share? Please add the url code to the link below, and let us see your lovelies!
