Vintage Vogue


Hello, my friends!

Well…haven’t we had some fun with Blogger the last couple of days?!  It was sad not to be able to visit properly and leave comments on all your beautiful posts…I’ll be catching up today!

Just a little vintage sewing fun to share with you today…


A card made yesterday using Vintage Street Market’s “Dimestore Vogue” Paper Sheets & Tags kit

Dimestore Vogue

I just LOVE using this kit—so many wonderfully vintage elements to use!


Everything I used comes from their “Dimestore Vogue” kit, as well as their “Vintage Easter” kit… in the “Dimestore Vogue” kit, you’ll find wonderful things—very unique to them—like a HUGE sheet of aqua foil and another HUGE sheet of yummy brown crepe paper—both of which I’ve used here…


Vintage Street Market also carries a wide variety of colors of Baker’s Twine—so fun to use!  Here I used “Cappuccino” …so pretty!


I finished it off with a retro acrylic star, topped off with a multi-layered felt flower, and a “button” from the kit’s tag sheet…everything is, of course, touched with a bit of my favorite “Platinum” Stickles, which is also available from Vintage Street Market…

A bit more vintage sewing fun from my recent finds…


…a fabulously Forties “Sewing Club” needle kit…don’t you just love these???

And one of my favorite new obsessions…


….these amazing plastic slide buckles…the ones you often see on the dresses of the '40’s and ‘50’s…fabulous!


Just look at all the detail on these little gems!  Amazing how much love they put into seemingly ordinary, everyday items back then…


Aaaaah….vintage love!

Got any vintage crafting on the agenda today?  Have fun!

See you soon with something new…
