Vintage treasures
A few of my prettiest vintage treasures. I love to display them in my beautiful vintage sewing drawer.The soft aqua blue is my favorite color and the art nouveau design is so lovely.I bought this great architectural piece at a wonderful antique store in Austin called Uncommon Objects. It was dark brown, but I loved the shape and knew it would look fabulous painted white. (Of course, I think nearly everything looks better painted white!) I roughed it up a bit with some sandpaper and added a gorgeous rhinestone button for a little sparkle. Love the soft shade of light blue on this pretty vintage hat my sweet mama gave me last Christmas. Part of me wants to remove all the pretty flowers for my art projects, but this one is just too pretty.
My favorite pillow. I adore the colors and the wonderful old barkcloth fabric.And last, I have to show you some of the gorgeous vintage wallpapers I received from Holly.
Aren't they gorgeous??? I can't wait to use them in my art!Michelle xoxo

pretty things Michelle!!! i don't cut up my hats when they look that good either...esp since i have such a hard time finding them...i have a couple with velvet leaves and berries, that i have just lightly "pruned", but i just can't bring myself to cut them up all the way...love the papers from Holly, she has a gorgeous collection of wallpaper...the pictures of your boys in the sidebar are SO cute:)
