Old Window Charm

Pinterest introduced me to the many ways to use old windows.

To see the charm of old windows used in decorating take a peek here –
and here.

Finally! I have my very own. I found it next door at a yard sale. Squee!

Old Roady and Son gave me puzzled looks when I walked in with my treasure. The response to my explanation was a well executed eye roll (worthy of an Olympian) and a quiet “I wondered what you were going to do with that”.

I’ve brushed, washed and polished. Next week – the reveal!

Shabby Chic Flower Card

Shabby chic – soft and opulent with signs of age. That’s what I think of when I look at this card I made for Mommy.

Layer paper, fabric, cheese cloth, and tissue paper. Sew a button in the middle of the stacked layers then spray with heavy-duty spray starch till soaking wet.  Scrunch and shape then let the flower dry. The drying takes a few days because of all the layers. Then attach to a card front with Glubers.

Raid your fabric and ribbon stash and have fun creating one.
