The evidence, when pulled out of storage, along with the realisation of how much
A lot went!! :)
However the lace on this old Shabby Chic sheet set from Rachel Ashwell was too nice to toss just because the sheet was worn out.
After un-stitching, washing, ironing and starching the lace, yesterday I used it as the basis for the Celebrate banner I had in mind.
Bias binding, some burlap and Pink Paislee scrapbooking alphabet letters all came together nicely to create a base for a banner that can be decorated up and added to for various upcoming celebrations we will have around here.
Right now it fills the space underneath this portrait nicely. Simple but elegant and with loads more potential. It is due to play a roll in a party I am planning - but is a surprise for one of the members in my house. This way I can get it made at least this far and they don't have a clue.
I love the vintage french feel the lace and burlap evoke.
Sorry about the shadows! No matter which way I took the photo's they could not be avoided.
Watch this space for more on the Celebrate Banner - and secret party planning.
Linking up here today.
