Good Evening my friends. I thought I would stop in and share my yard sale find and the projects I worked on this weekend. I had a lot of fun in my craft room this weekend. I am trying to use up some of my craft supplies as my craft room is over flowing. Hope you enjoy! I stopped at one yard sale this weekend. The only thing I found was this Mercury glass looking candle votive. Its about 8 inches tall. It was brand new. The label said it came from Kirklands and the original price was 6.99. I paid three dollars for it. This was a really heavy nice shoe box before I started this project. I wanted to decorate it in creams and browns so I could store some of my laces inside. I first covered the lid with cream color cotton fabric. Then I attached the darker lace around the sides of the top. I added some ribbon to cover up the fabric around the lid and then glued some ruffly cream lace on top of the ribbon. The doily is a vintage doily I found at a yard sale. The flowers are really vintage. They are made of a heavy velvet. They use to have gold clips in the center of the rose. They were used as place card holders in another life. I used my cutter pliar and cut the metal out of the center of the rose. The rose also had brown velvet leaves. I purchased some beautiful feathers at AC Moore last week. They are the perfect color for this project. I glued a bronw and cream feather behind each flower. I hot glued pearls all the way around the edge of the doily. The beige rose trim I purchased from Wild Orchid Craft. I just love it! All the lace is glued to the lid of the box. So when I want to store something inside, all the lace lifts off with the lid. I used part of an old lace curtain to make this unmentionables bag. I used coffee to dye it to an aged look. The flower is off a hair band I found at the Family Dollar. I just love feminine little bags. I used fabric and lace scraps to make these little hanging pillows.
