One of this year's spring issues had a gorgeous pair of angel wings adorning a vintage dress form. It definitely appeared handmade, so I thought "I'll try that some day". Here is the result:
They were simple to make, but a bit tedious. I reshaped two old wire hangers to make the wing forms and tied them together with twine. Next I cut some lace netting to fit each form, then sewed the lace around the wire. (That's the tedious part). I love how they turned out and am having fun finding places to hang them. Here they adorn our rustic old barn window in a corner of our living room:
And what are the odds I'd find some vintage towels with my blog initials 'E + R' on them? Not good. So Jeanne D'Arc Living also inspired me to cross-stitch some initials on vintage white towels.
I've been pondering the idea of opening an Etsy shop with these kind of handmade items. Plus I love to make pillows. Hmmm...much to consider. Any advice from you dear talented friends would be much appreciated.
And I have to tell you about these cutest miniature jars I found at JoAnn's craft store last week. They were only $1 each!
