I finally had a chance to play in the studio with some of the items from my birthday shopping spree. This little fabric book was created with spring in mind using calico prints with robins egg blue hues.
You will see oodles of mother of pearl buttons sew throughout, an antique lace dust cover, vintage lace trims, beading, fabric flowers, seam binding ribbon and vintage hankies sewn into the book.
Of course, little collage faces have also been incorporated on to each page too!
I hope to use more of the items found at the antique mall in upcoming pieces. The little scale is going into my studio area along with the large wooden box to hold supplies. I probably will paint the box a shabby white as I am currently working on some drawers down in our basement.
Spring always makes me want to redecorate and spruce up the house. The snowflakes are falling today all big and fluffy, but I have already heard “Mr. Robin” and I know that it won’t be long until winter is over.
