contained vintage...

Happy Saturday....I am working the vintage theme today over at Vintage Street Market and had to pop in to share these little finds.  I recently visited an estate sale with my mother while she was visiting and came across a home of a crafter/collector.  Boxes of doilies, fabric, buttons, trim...so much loveliness.  The lady who had lived their had a passion for creating and had a vision of what my future may look like.  Vintage sewing machines and cabinets filled with every color of thread lined the dining room.  Picked up a few of these treasures, came home, and spread it all across the table as if I were a kid on Halloween after a big night out.  So my project today features a doily flower atop this canning jar and some vintage fabric to embellish a little more with some color.  If you are out looking for your own treasures today...wishing you happy finds!
