Vintage Chic Spring...

Are you in the mood for a little something sweet, vintage, chic and springy?  So boy...I am.  Was in the mood to create something completely different yesterday and found inspiration to create her.

So soft, perfect addition for spring and...although a little messy to make, worth every minute.  I am in love with creating pom-poms...not enough around here with three boys in the house.  Went to work finding inspiration and materials to create her using this photo from Pinterest as my inspiration.

There is also a video of pom-pom creations on Martha Stewart that was kind of fun to watch.  This project was complete though without a home to place her.

Painted a small wooden basket white, added ribbon and braided fabric trim to around the basket using Therm O Web adhesive and topped it off with a vintage inspired handmade bloom with leaves.

In need of a little Easter greeting as well.  Added layers of Riddersholm Design paper from the Bello Pastello collections and handmade fabric braided trim.  Just love the look of the braided fabric, adding the right amount of color and shabby chicness that I was looking for.  Also added ribbon from Prairie Bird Boutique and stamped images from Papertrey Ink.

Hope you enjoyed the vintage chic spring project today.  If you are looking for the winners of my last two giveaways, check back first thing tomorrow when I will have the posted here.  Thank you everyone who participated.  It was such an amazing hop!
