This is my first time.....Usually I love the traditional look, mixed in with vintage, and items from my own childhood. But, hey, variety is the spice of life, isn't it?
Vintage sheet music is not very hard to find at flea markets. So I put it to good use making rolled sheets of music. Then I used cookie cutters to trace shapes of ornaments & cut them out with scissors.....I even used piano legs from an old piano in the vignette!!
I found the piano legs at the Canton Flea Market in Texas. The sellers told me that they couldn't even give the piano away for free. So they sliced it up into pieces and sold the pieces. I bought these two pieces/legs for $15. Aren't they so pretty? After Christmas, I think I'll hang them on a wall somewhere.
Behind this vignette, I hung a vintage evening gown. As much as I love the all-white theme of some beautiful houses, I really love color also. The wall behind this cabinet is yellow, so to get the neutral them of this vignette, I just used what I had on hand. Vintage evening gowns are what I use to create many projects, so I used one of those. Next fall, I'll use this gown to make ornate pumpkins.
The music pages are a great resource to make pinwheels and rosettes!! They're fast, easy, and fun! Glitter makes them even better! Glitter Done!!
See the oh-so-pretty reindeer?
