This vintage advertising card was so pretty, all she needed was some wings, she was already a fairy like lady.
This image was in the same box as the other, purchased at Bottom's Up last week. I got a huge pile of old die cuts and cards for $20. This one was torn, but was perfect for this page, I tore it a bit more, added glittered butterfly wings, a millinery bloom for a hat, and lace across the torn bottom edge.
This little hen hugger was in the same box.
I placed her over sheet music layered with a piece of curtain fabric left over from when the raccoons tore into my breezeway. The curtains were shredded at the bottom, but too pretty to throw away, so I saved what I could.
I glittered the chicken, gave the fairy some dragonfly wings and a millinery laurel for her hair. I almost added fairy wings to the chicken till I realized that, dur, chickens come with wings already.
She reminds me of Sugarwings carrying around one of her pet Rhode Island Reds.
I have a couple more to show you in the next posts. Hopefully I will stop making these and get to work on some other stuff. But this theme is soooo fun, I just keep coming up with more and more ideas and would rather make these than get other stuff done. Like the BORING task of making the back covers of the book. Ugh.
There have been some rough days around the cottage recently and sitting down to make something pretty was a big help to me. Filling my world with pretty things helps to forget about the ugliness sometimes, doesn't it?
I'll be in Indiana for my family reunion, but will pre-post on my blog. All orders from the Boutique will be sent out when I return.
You still have time to make some if you want to join too. Details on the side bar button to the right.
Pages are due on Sept.1st. But please keep in mind that it might take me more than a week to assemble, pack and label approximately 100 books. If you are running late, contact me before you spend money overnighting your package!!! I hate to see you overnight something and then have it sit here on my desk for 10 days.
But try not to be late, that does make it harder for me. Just please contact me if you are a couple days behind.
PS- if you want to win a giveaway of one of these doily votives, please leave a comment on the previous post.
