Under this glass dome, is a vintage wedding photo, and silver vintage clothes brush, and some more lace. This lace was crocheted by my husband's grandmother.
Here is some more vintage lace pieces I have displayed in a jar, and a display of some vintage white buttons.
A wreath I made from vintage white buttons.
This was hard to photograph, as the camera kept reflecting off the glass. I had to take kind of a side view of it. It is a collage I put together in a shadow box frame, using some of my mom's, grandmother's, and mother in laws things. I love cottage, and Victorian decor. I wanted it to look more Victorian. I took a shadow box, and distressed the outside with gold rub on paint, then hot glued a lace edging around it. Two layers of lace around the outside. In the corners, I used single
flowers in different hues of burgundy. I just hot glued them as I went along. For the background, I used a shiny material in sage green. Inside, I tacked jewelry that my mom wore on the nights she would get dressed up and go out with my dad. I would sit on her bed, and watch her get ready. I put my grandmother's pearls, and watch, and some flowers made by my mother-in-law out of ribbon. Everything is just tacked down with a needle and thread. No glue. I want to make another one using pinks and whites, for a more cottage look. Well, I hope you enjoyed your visit. Please visit Suzanne, to see the other participants. Thanks for coming by.
