And the Winner is.....

Hello! I suppose you are all dying to know who won the drawing! Linds and I DID do the drawing last night, but I was a little too tired from the weekend to write up a post and thought I would wait until this morning when I was more fresh and alert!

And the winner is.....Dinah!! Yeah! I already have your address Dinah, so I will just pack up your goodies and send them off to you. Thanks to all of you who entered and left such sweet thoughtful comments--((HUGS)).

I just finished up this new collage and got it listed in my shop this morning. A nostalgic piece made with these cute-as-can-be vintage net butterflies (which I've had for a long time but they are almost too cute to use, know what I mean?!) I wanted to make sure they were used in a proper project that would show off their beauty! I found some old McCall's crafts magazines in my last trip to the antique shop--"Grand Avenue Treasures"--and found this image in an issue from 1952. I really like the effect the numbers have on the texture of it. I added a little bit of mini rick rack (surprise!) lol, and a really nice and sparkly vintage rhinestone button. The tinsel around the edges really adds to the nostalgic feel, don't you think? It's framed under glass in a cute little shadowbox frame that I painted a nice cream color .
