I am artist of texture and color. I enjoy working with textiles, mixed media and the graphic arts. I am an avid cottage gardener with a love for pass along plants and big fluffy pink peonies and pink roses. Many of my tangible creations reflect my love of the garden and all its wonderful colors. I have been selling my creations online since 2002 beginning as a hobby. After 10 years I quit the day job to pursue my art as a full time passion.

...some new things....repurposed

It is fun to repurpose!
I recently got into the "pretty hanger" mood....and it was so inspiring to repurpose some of these pieces of vintage crochet and embroidery. Today I thought I would share these with my blogging friends! Below are two of the several I created.

A vintage crochet collar repurposed with lots of pink roses!

A new use for hand embroidered southern belle dresser scarf with vintage crochet!

I hope I inspired you today to create something pretty from something that is no longer used because it is out of style or something is wrong or broken on it.
To see the rest of the hangers, check out my website

OMG! I have that same Southern Belle Scarf in the same colors! It was my Grandmother's. Your hangers are sooo pretty. Great way to use stained linens too.
Thank you for stopping by and leaving such a nice comment.
