Welcome!. I live in Oviedo, Florida with my handsome husband, two great kids and a pair of silly basset hounds. Oviedo is a little town where you can get a Barney’s coffee on one corner and have to wait for the chickens to cross on the next. I love to shop for vintage treasures to use in my home and artwork. Come along with me!
I just love vintage recipe cards. They are fun to create with and decorate with too. This one is just perfect for Fall. Print it out on card stock and stick this in a flower frog or other photo holder. Maybe even add a black and white photo in front and use the recipe as a matte for the photo. Won't that be cute on your buffet or hutch?
This one should be fun for those of you who love anything Francais. lol Recipe cards like this can be great for backgrounds in artwork, cards, decoupage, journal work....you name it. Have some fun.
Here's an idea - Take some coffee or tea stained lace and cheesecloth. Layer it in small pieces on the recipe card. Sew it on in a messy fashion. Leave the strings. Add a favorite vintage image transferred to fabric on top. You can sew that on too. Suddenly you have a little piece of art. Hang her by a rusty safety pin or stand her up in a flower frog. This is a great way to make ornaments for the tree. Use pics of your family.
I hope you enjoy these. I'll be sure to share the projects I create with these. Thank you so much for your comments and follows. I enjoy connecting with you guys so much. I'll be celebrating a year of blogging later this month. Stay tuned for my giveaway! xoxo
