I have been a lover of all things vintage for as long as I can remember, but one thing that that truly makes my heart skip a beat is .. vintage trims. I have lots of them, and I don’t just collect and save them, I really do use them. I have a large container of them in my supply closet, but I like to have a variety of trims out and easy to get to while I’m creating. I use wooden spools for keeping smaller pieces organized. I love the Dimestore Vogue Paper Sheets and Tags, and thought it would be fun to create an altered container with it to, store my vintage treasures 🙂
A round paper mache container worked perfectly as my base. Adding the papers and embellishments was really easy and fun to do. Now I can have bits of my favorite trims in here for safe keeping, until I’m ready to use them.
I love vintage trims and lace of any kind, but have some that are extra special to me. I adore handmade trims, especially anything tatted, crocheted or embroidered. I actually tried to learn to tat when I was part of any extension club at one time. It’s not easy.. it all I’m going to say about that 🙁 I have a huge apprieciation for for the time and talent it takes!
Thankyou for letting me share my obsession with you. (snicker)
