Loving Whites, from the past


Here are a few of the little things I love.... from old posts.
little baby shoes, old buttons, and some of my tea bag roses.


 

And here is a finished baby shoe filled with tea bag roses.
You can also use baby shoes for nests...
(this link also has how to age a baby shoe.)



Here is some tea stained paper.
Tutorial HERE.


These are some bird nests my students made.
I wil be teaching more classes on these as it gets warmer outside.
So much easier outside....so messy. =)


This is a vignette of one of my hand created pin cushions using a candle holder,

(see the buttons in the bottom?)
and a bit of lace, with some baby shoes.


Be blessed,

Hi, Barbara Jean! What a lovely mix of vintage looks. And you generously added tutorial links! Just the best! I, too, collect baby shoes and will now see them in a different light!

Beautiful vignettes, Barb! The baby shoe with the roses look very sweet and those bird nests are adorable. The pincushion on a candle stick is very lovely as well.
Happy Valentine's Day!

Love the baby shoes--I now wish I would have done something like that with my kids shoes rather than having them bronzed!
