Wall art

I have always had a love for old keys and wanted to incorporate them some how in my room redo. I bought this frame at Hobby Lobby and decided I would decorate it with some old keys and burlap. I added a little bird that my sweet friend Tracy gave me. Believe it or not the bird was white with hardly any tail feathers I sprayed it brown with glimmer mist and added a few feathers to her tail I love the way she turned out.  What do you think?

Remember these??

Well I have finally pulled one of them out of the garage and added a burlap wreath to it, and it will hang in my sons bedroom. I am redoing his room and making a guest bedroom. He went off to college 3 years ago and it has taken me this long to adjust to the fact he has grown up and will just use the room to visit. I am so proud of him and his journey. 

 I have painted his room and his dresser, hung some curtains that I made, sewed some pillows and I am now on the hunt for bedding. 

Hope you are enjoying your journey!!

A Little something

Here is a little wreath that I have made
 to go in my vintage room I am working on. 
I started out with a wire circle. Cut some scraps 
of burlap, muslin and cheese cloth and tied it 
onto the wire. I then added a flower made from 
burlap, made a lollie to go in the center of the flower
 added a bling and their 
you have it a fun little wreath.

I know Christmas is over but,

I was asked to post some close ups of the stockings that I made. Hope you Enjoy!!!

(click on pics to enlarge)

Tracy and I had a great time sewing these it took me a bit longer on mine I just couldn't figure out what I wanted. I made two others decided to scratch those and changed the plan and this is what we came up with. Not one of these is the same. I used burlap with a felt topper. The doilies where all hand crochet by my mother, I found the trim online and at different antique stores. The ornaments came from Hobby Lobby and Cracker Barrel. I love the way they turned out. My sister loved them so much I am now making a set for her. Fun stuff!!!
