Hello, friends! How are you doing today? Are ready for a fun new challenge at the Frilly and Funkie Blog? The lovely Jenny is our hostess for the next two weeks, with the theme of Something Old. Her guidelines are as follows: I'm sure, like me, there will be lots of you who love all things vintage and enjoy nothing more than discovering old and unwanted treasure at thrift shops and junk markets. The challenge this time is to use something old either as the basis of your project or as an addition to your vintage or shabby chic creation.
At the end of the challenge the team will choose their top four picks. Our first place winner will be invited to join us in a Guest DT spot at The Frilly and Funkie Blog. Three additional talented participants will receive badges to display on their blogs. Everyone who enters and adheres to the challenge guidelines will be entered into a drawing to win a $25 spending spree at The Funkie Junkie Boutique! For entry specifics and inspiration from my fabulous teammates just click on the blog link above.
This is a theme I truly love! I collect many vintage items, and never pass up an antique mall or estate sale.
I'm recovering from a hand injury, so I must keep my project quite simple this time. My 'something old' is a vintage pearl and crystal earring, and the button that forms the cap. It is altered using a combination of gesso and paints, lace, pearls, twine, a key, and Little Birdie Flowers.
Additional pearls are added to the button cap, just because I love them!
I send wishes for all things good and wonderful to come your way! I'm looking forward to seeing all of your vintage goodies and gorgeous creations!
