Hi guys! I have been laying low the past week or so..I have been busy! Besides the usual stuff, my husband was needling me to get things listed on Ebay..which I did. Also I have been working on a few projects. Here are a couple of my newest ones. These are small doorknob or wall signs that I made from all vintage materials (except the paint!) The base was some small metal tip or snack trays I got at an estate sale last week. They were pretty ugly..beige with wheat heads in the center. Sooooo... I broke out my drill and some spray paint. I forgot to take "Before" pictures of them...pooh...trust me..they were ugly!
I added swags I made from vintage chandelier crystal prisms from my stash..
I did the centers in chalkboard paint so you could write a name or short message or phrase.
I also added vintage brass chain to the top to hang them from.
I made them 2 different directions and in pink and aqua. These are in my Etsy shop, hopeandjoystudios!
These were project #2. These are vintage wicker floral baskets. This is the after..(hopefully you could tell that!)
I added some of my handmade paper flowers and one has a handmade singed organza flower with a vintage rhinestone center. I think they would be fab with a vase of flowers inside or piled with shabby pink, silver or aqua Christmas bulbs. (I have a weakness for shabby Shiny Brites!)
I also tied a vintage lace swag around them.
This one also has a vintage button center.
I really like this one..I like color!
This one had a vintage pink velvet ribbon wrapped around it also.These went to my antique/vintage booth (Main Street Antiques in Sweetwater, TN) The handles were so big I figured they would be hard to ship.
This was the before. I had these in my booth for months and no takers so I hope the face lift helps them find a new home! I have pics of my booth I hope to get posted in the next couple days. Thanks for stopping by! Julia
