Don't be shocked!
I am not much of a crafter.
However, when I visited Kathy's blog, Kate's Place, and saw her sweet lacey heart she made, I remembered I had some old lace edging from some vintage pillowslips.
putting the lace on the wire
I didn't have proper guage wire so I used a wire coathanger.
My but that wire is stiff!! I had to use pliers, wire cutters and
leather gloves to shape it and in the end only used about 7 inches of the wire. My heart is much smaller than Kathy's!
the finished product
There it is. Pretty shabby. Shabby pretty.
The ribbon rose is from an old baby bonnet.
Definitely vintage. Even wire coat hangers are rare.
What do you think?
Aren't I crafty?
Valentine's Day is only 4 weeks from tomorrow.
What have you been crafting lately?
It's been so cold here the past few days and nights.
It was -20 Celsius the past 3 nights!
and there was a windchill factor of -35 Celsius.
It warmed up to -9 C. this afternoon so I took the dogs
out for a playtime for about 15 minutes and took some
photos. My fingers were so cold!
I hope your day is blessed and that you are warm and cozy.
I've edited this post so I could join Kathy's new link party
Home and Garden Thursday at A Delightsome Life.
Come on over. The theme this week is thrifting or crafting.
