Preview of New Things... Most are Re-purposed

I have been busy playing  working creating new re-purposed items.

Here is a preview of what I will have at A Paris Street Market this Saturday  and Spring Horseshoe Market the following Saturday (May 11).

Chalkboards = all from re-purposed materials.  A fresh coat of paint and black chalkboard paint is all you need.

Vintage Blue Ball Jars with paper flowers for Spring (inside a re-purposed suitcase)

 Vintage Linens + Wood Embroidery Hoops (all estate sale finds) =

What used to be a vintage brown Samsonite Cosmetic carrying case has now been given a face lift...

An old wooden box is now a chalkboard surface ...I altered the sides of the box with texture paste, vintage doilies (used as a stencil) to create a mix media look.  Doilies have been stamped with a Chalk Marker.

Vintage Inspired fabric + Vintage Buttons =

An old metal box re-purposed....

Chalkboard Fabric + Embroidery Hoops (painted) = Chalkboards with stamped images created with a Chalk Marker

Perhaps my favorite re-purposed item...a old green suitcase.  I painted it black, then added a texture design to the top of the suitcase.

Sew Retro Fabric + Scrabble Tiles + Embroidery Hoop (painted red) =

Love the Chalk Markers and the Stamp images.  Most of the stamps I used are from Stampin-Up.

Fun fabric + Embroidery Hoop (Painted Black) =

Vintage Linens, some in their original state and others have been hand-dyed TEAL AND PURPLE!

Crossword Puzzle Fabric + Embroidery Hoop (painted yellow) =

This is just a sampling.  I truly have many more painted embroidery hoops with vintage embroidery, vintage inspired fabric along with a wide assortment of Chalkboard surfaces.

Now I have to get busy adding sales tags to all of these items...that part is definitely not fun!
