Vintage for me..


I chose the name of my blog , NOT in reference to me, but because I just love things that have been aged. Anything I make I like to use "found" vintage objects on it or papers that look old and shabby. I like shabby chic, but I also like just plain old vintage. This card I made using an old elastic cardboard holder from a long ago dimestore.. Notice the price?? 29 cents..those days are long gone. Also used some old sewing paper and an image from the net. Made for a sewing friend.. Even the rick rack is old. not the new stuff..

This is amazing, I have my ums old sewing basket and inside are some real treasures, old tins of plasters, not plasters inside but packs of needles, and they are sooooo old. maybe I ought to send them to you to use. Shame they are just sitting there, you could probably use the wrappers.

Hey, sweetie! Thanks for visiting my blog and I read your comment re: the Row Houses. I'll be looking for them and will post to the group when I've received them.

I love this "Vintage for Me" post, it is so you! As soon as I saw it, I thought, perhaps this would make you a beautiful blog banner! {You know when and if you ever tire of the one you have... just thought I'd suggest it --- you know just in case you hadn't thought of that option.}
