Rescued Treasure!

Look at my latest find!!  Aren’t they beautiful!?  This vintage china set is from Contour China of Japan.  The pattern name is Picardy.  I love these gorgeous pink roses.  I wish I could have found more pieces.  I wish I new when this pattern was produced.  By the shape and style I am assuming in the 1960’s.  Does anyone know?  Or could you direct me where I could find out more information?

Easy Owl Valentine

 

I am in the Valentine mood already.  I know, I know… the Christmas holiday has just passed.   I need to relax.  I don’t know what it is.  Maybe it it the mild weather we are having here in the midwest… no snow and temperatures in the mid 50’s.  Whatever the reason, I dug out my valentine papers and made this cute card.  The patterned cardstock is from Brenda Walton’s Sweet Talk by K and Company.  I got the owl from the sheet of the the die cuts that are included in the stack.

Pink and White Button Ring

A few years ago my grandmother gave me a treasure chest full vintage buttons.  Well, it wasn’t a real treasure chest like the pirates use, but it felt like that to me.  It was really a 40-year-old blue tin with a flower design on it.  But, none the less, I was pleased to have it.  My grandmother was a seamstress in her younger days and she kept every left over from all her projects.  I always loved playing in those buttons when I was little.  She always let me create with them.  I’d sew them to scraps of fabric, use them in paper collages and of course, glue them to cards.  Just a couple of  years ago my grandmother and I sat down together and made button rings using her buttons.  It’s hard to believe that was one of the last few times we would create together.  Now she is in a total care nursing home six hours away from me so I don’t get to see her that often and she is not able to craft anymore.  I was feeling lonely for her so I thought I would take down her button tin and combine them with some of the newer ones I have acquired.  (I also save everything, I know where I get it from.) 🙂  This is one that I created.  I also have quite a few others listed in my Etsy shop.  So click on over and take a look.  You could own a piece of “grandmother love” too. 🙂

Love Valentine’s Day Card

I’m in the mood for love!

I’ve been making Valentine’s Day cards.  I “love” this simple layered design.  I mounted patterned scrapbook paper over textured cardstock and I used the retired stamp set Heart-itude from The Angel Company.
