Pink and Grey Christmas Creations

 I love pink and grey together.  This is a vintage piece of fabric that was a curtain!  I love, love this tapestry. So I wanted to continue my Grey and pink in restoring an old Christmas music box.  I painted the box in Annie Sloan pink and decoupaged a label on to the top.  I then sanded the box lightly and waxed it.

I had some beautiful red tin, rusty and crusty in all the right places.  On the back was some great green peeling paint.  I also had some wonderful 50's wall paper.  I had to think for awhile of what I could create.  Pink and grey and Victorian, score.

I took some of my favorite clippings, laces and created this Holiday Hanging
I Added some images of advertising labels and made a few magnets

One of my labels was this advertisement for Fine Cottons!!

I love the pink and gray with the cameo

This reminded me of the Tavern on the Green dining rooms in New York.  When we visited it was all dressed up with beautiful lanterns outside. 

On the back of the wallpaper was this great graphic "HOLIDAY", so it had to make it on.  I am calling this one "Home for the Holiday".
I still need to add some Christmas Bling, but I am happy how I combined my junk finds with some beautiful graphics for some Holiday Cheer

Happy Holidays to you, Happy Holiday~~~~Joining
