Barn Sale Creating

Creating Barn Sale Goodness

The holidays sparked my creativity.  I created boards with my vintage papers.  Creating with Jeanne Oliver, I learned some of her favorite techniques.  I love creating and playing with collected papers.  These have brought back memories of fun times.


I have been collecting vintage dresses for awhile.  I decided to alter the dress with vintage fabrics, beautiful yarns and emblishments.  As I sit and stich, images and words start to appear.  Sometimes, I will add quotes, words and Bible verses.
 On our summer visit to Pennsylvania, I found Civil War Buttons and Porcelain Buttons

I created the dress below for my sweet friend Sherry @ The Pink House


I will have serveral of the dresses along with my prayer flags 
 
I make my prayer flags so they can be hung by themselfs or in groups of 2 or more.

Here is the Fall flag in my Dining Room
I can't wait to share my vintage pieces that I will be taking to the sale...that will be the next post.  Until then have a safe weekend.  It is going to be freezing here and possible snow.
