Mixed media vintage tin hearts, vintage baby clothes and yet another snow day!
Hi guys! Yet another snowy day in East TN..or as the North calls it..Tuesday. I am sharing some of my latest creations and finds and some more snow day pix.
I made these with vintage roofing tin tiles and more vintage and new elements. This one has a German glass glitter star and an aqua heart..I think this is my fav of all the ones I made.
This one is very "white decor". I think "white decor" is beautiful, I'd just never be able to pull it off. Reasons..1. husband and son, 2. the pooches 3. the first thing I'd do would be add a magenta pillow!
The heart is vintage bingo card and the star is vintage French dictionary text.
I have dipped into some of the goodies we got in Jan. to list! I really like vintage baby shoes..so sweet!
They are cute for decor!
This pair is actually an orthopedic pair to straighten curved baby feet. They would have attached to a metal bar that also helped to straighten ankles. (My cousin had some in the 70's..these are older)
This cutie already sold..great for a 4th of July or beach cottage vignette.
This coral dotted Swiss one also has bloomers..approx WW2 era.
This one is on its way to a photographer in MN!
I like the small white christening dresses too.
3 hanging in a row..so sweet! I like alternative "art" for my walls.
You can't see it here but this one has a tiny embroidered bunny at the neckline. I made these small hangers from twigs and wire. They are a better "fit" than new hangers.
The tiny slips are cute too! I think they would also make a great mixed media textile "base"..hmmm.
This is outside today. There was no snow yesterday. Jack hasn't had school for over a week!
This is a long way from drinking a glass of wine and putting my feet up!
My long and winding road..
It really is pretty! Those are the Smoky Mountain foothills in the distance. I am a "Valley Girl" between the Smoky and the Cumberland ranges.
My deck buddies..if you feed them, they will come! A woodpecker..
and an Eastern Towhee. We also have cardinals, Blue Jays and a flock of little birds. Hope you are staying warm! Until next time! Julia
Hi! I am a former SD girl..now a TN woman. I have a great family..wonderful husband, 2 sons, 2 daughters and a grandson. I have 2 Etsy shops, https://hopeandjoyhome.etsy.com is the shop I sell vintage things in and https://hopeandjoystudios.etsy.com is the shop I sell handmade in. I also help my husband with his Etsy shop https://theindustrialfarmer.etsy.com . I love to create! I like to garden but my attention generally wanes about July and it is every man for himself. I am in the process of turning my daughter's former bedroom into my studio and will be posting pics. I love to laugh..drink coffee and eat chocolate..more to come!
