Magnet Boards

I finally finished my fabric covered magnet boards.  I think I like them too much to sell.  I hate when this happens!  The first baroque style magnet board began its life as a mirror.  Someone had painted it a shocking pink when I found it. A lot of elbow grease, my favourite pale blue paint, vintage fabric and voila!  A fancy, dancy way to display stuff.
The burlap board was inspired by an old grain sack that I saw in a French country magazine.

I love, love, love the window that I used to create the last board here. It came from and old (Victorian?) house in Quebec.

Urban Craft Show

The show was a great success!  Now I'll have to recreate for the next.

Spring Cloches

I decided to put some of my favourite antique dishes to good use as the bases for these cloches.  Vintage knobs made great handles.  I love using antique images whenever I can and thought these beautiful birds would make wonderful cards.
