Angel Wings and Lacy Scarves and Shawls made with Vintage Laces

Angel wings and lacy scarves and shawls made from vintage laces....I thought this would get your attention!  
I've been on an angel wing kick, if there is such a thing.  But you know how we take an interest in something and then start creating like mad!  

However, I must admit that I cannot take the credit for making these.  They are from Jeanne d'Arc Living and are currently for sale in my Etsy Shop.  

I discovered gold leafing and I want to gold leaf everything!  I might be a little late to the game but it's never too late to try something new.
These heavy metal wings are perfect for gold leafing.
When this scarf arrived I gotta tell ya my heart skipped a beat!
Talk about tons of gorgeous lace and nothing but loveliness to wrap around your neck and shoulders.....Oh my!
Here it is on a mannequin from Jeanne d'Arc's website:
This scarf is also available in my SHOP!

I can't think of anything more lovelier than this vintage shawl from Jeanne d'Arc.  I think it's perfect for the transition into fall wardrobe.  The only problem is deciding which color I like best, cream or powdered rose.  It's also in my Etsy Shop.

Okay, my Lovelies.  This is all I have for now.  I hope you have a fun and creative weekend.

Bucket Love...repeat of an old post.

What to  do with an old rusty bucket????  Why add some doilies, lace, burlap and bling of course!

I lined the inside with some old lace curtain fabric using decoupage.  These have been selling in my booth mostly to brides or wedding planners.  Although I think they are perfect for holding towels or other items.

Love the fabric label on this one.  It would be cute in a laundry room.

 Gizzie says hi to everybody.  She's been really busy bird watching through the screened in porch.
 That's it for today.  Remember to get out there and make, create, photograph, write, paint, craft, repurpose and find something wonderful and share it with us!!

New Jeanne d'Arc Style

I just had to share this lovely Jeanne d'Arc dress that arrived today!
JDL never ceases to amaze me with their lovely creations.  Each time I open a delivery from their company I am never, ever dissappointed.  

Their designers love detail and fine European cottons.  Ruffles are always tastefully done and the lace has a look and vintage feel.
Their styles are always feminine, romantic, a little Bohemain, French and Nordic...rolled into one.

The appliqued flowers on this one are individually made and sewn on the dress.  Each little flower looks like a work of art...

 Another thing about Jeanne d'Arc styles is their comfort and quality.  I just love their sweet cloth tags.  So, if you are looking for clothing that makes you feel pretty, Jeanne d'Arc is your choice.
This one is in my etsy shop.  So, if you like it I hope you'll stop by.
