miniature wooden Armour that I picked up at a flea market. I decoupaged it and use it for memorabilia.

The bag is 8x8". I tea dyed muslin and lace scraps. The trims were all found at a thrift store and include,broken jewelry,buttonsflowers and rickrack. I made the wired ribbon rose.
Wet it and crushed it and left to dry to give an ol look. A silk ruffle at the top and a
long beige shoulder cord complete it.

Distressed Frame Marilyn Rock
Frame that I made from an architectural post base. It came with the square opening. I distressed the frame, crackled it, added antiquing gel and added a stamped image to the back.

Little Rose Fabric Collage Pillow Paula Scinto
The silk materials are all from the 1920's and belonged to mygrandmother, I think they were her dresses, that went into the recycling bag at one point in time -she never threw anything away The photo was inkjet printed onto silk too. I had intended this to be a pillow, but I think it photographs better flat, I will fill it later.
Gillian Allen Shabby Chic 20's Bag
I wanted to use some of my vintage buttons and buckle that I won off an ebay estate sale in the US. I pieced together harmonising fabrics and overlaid them on some soft batting.
