Passionate about Dogwood Blooms

I started collecting items with dogwood blooms on them some years ago and have received many items from my girls on special occasions.  Here are some I found just surfing around the web.  I really like it when I can find something vintage with dogwood blooms, pink or white blooms doesn't matter which.

Throw a Ways Saved

Here is my hand at upcycling vintage satin ball ornaments that could have easily been thrown away.  I cut off all ragged satin parts and dug into my vintage stash of sequins,ribbons,acrylics and glass beads to redo the sad looking throw a ways. 

My daughter from inspired me to  think vintage Christmas.  Still scowering yard sales and thrift stores for more.   Don't you just love the sparkle of these saved beauties?

Old,Vintage,and Antique

I call this picture: Old,vintage and Antique.  A black and white photo of me and my sister at 5 and 4 years old.  The frame is made from 100 year old cypress unfinished wood.  Old nail holes still on back of frame.
They all seem to go together well I think.

Yarn Leftovers enters beautiful

Oh how the smallest of things we get rid of can be turned into home decor and inexpensive decorations or gifts for that matter.   Lovers of vintage seem to bring out the best talents during the Christmas Season as should be especially if giving from the heart and of your talents.

The top one is from a starbucks, second is,and the fourth from myhouseof giggles.

The others I chose from other sources and wanted to make for myself and as gifts.

Love the idea of someone using their talents instead of just purchasing something for me. I am also joyful to say that my two daughters have the same feelings.
