Vintage Look Sunglasses Display : Creative Mondays Blog Hop...


 I went to find my sunglasses a few weeks back, getting all ready for Spring (as you do) and my favourite ones were broken :( So I decided to think of a way to find them easier, not get any broken again and something with a vintage twist!!

Here came the idea for a sunglasses display that is now on my bedroom wall....


All you need is a plastic coat hanger, some glue or sellotape and some vintage lace....

Vintage Inspired Box : Creative Mondays Blog hop Week 12...


I started Creative Mondays to give me a reason to get more Creative.This week I made my first Jewelery box...





I had something delivered through the post but thought the box was just to good to throw away.So I cut up a old book into random triangles,rectangles and squares.I used wallpaper paste to glue them on so it wouldn't dry all gooey like flour and water....


Waited a few days until completely dry and printed a photo of me and my 2 youngest children off the computer in sepia.


Then I dyed some lace using a tea bag rinsed and left to dry...



Then I got creative with lace,beads buttons and my picture.I also decorated inside.I am very pleased with my first proper ( that's not just kids ideas ) craft project and cant wait for it to dry properly so I can put some things inside....

The gallery:Vintage

This week at The Gallery the theme is vintage-something old you own...

After trying to think of something I remembered Alf and Alfreton my two little puppets I got a long long time ago.I found them in a auction in a box full of rubbish hidden in the bottom.this was about 25 years ago now but when I got the out the kids didn't like them and told me to hurry up and put them away...






What made me laugh was I found them hidden in this bag ,which was from my first ever job over 20 years ago so I'm sure this is vintage too now!...
