"Down on the farm"....

Latest creation....three vintage style bottles in an aged carrier.  Each bottle has a vintage image of a child on the farm, mounted on antique-looking papers with paper lace around the bands.  The bottles are embellished with old trinkets, keys and a tea-stained label stamped "Down on the Farm".  This will be posted on my etsy site.

Just a quick note...

Went last month with my dearest friend for a well-deserved girls weekend getaway.  Stayed at a B & B in Sydney, Ohio that is a castle, called GreatStone Castle!!!  It was wonderful.  We spent three days antiquing and I got some real finds to repurpose....nothing is safe around me!  The tea pot I posted a few days ago was one of those treasures, bought it at a wonderful shop that all proceeds go towards Miami County arm loads of goodies there!!!   We came home with my vehicle filled to the rafters....woooohoooo..... You will just have to wait and see what I do with it my mind they are already completed.....

Vintage Silver Tea Pot

I just finished this silver collaged tea pot.  I purchased it at quaint little shop in Wapak,  and I knew that I wanted to embellish it with a vintage image of beautiful young lady and vintage tea labels.  I added the image of the antique letter to the background, dated from the turn of the century.  I also added vintage bling in the form of rhinestones, pearls, jewelry embellishments and antique lace.  It is posted on my etsy site.
