Creating with lace and rubber stamps

I actually needed something to use
to display with my bears at the show in London

so I gathered some of my tea dyed muslin
some vintage lace and some of my rubber stamps

and inspired by this beautiful post over at Lori´s place
I started creating fabric hearts

adding rubber stamps on the front

bits and pieces of vintage lace
a few pearls

and twine as hanger

I got a pretty little bunch of vintage inspired hearts
for my display
They looked very pretty displayed with my little ones.
Now the show is over and they will soon be available in my shop
Have a lovely creative weekend

They are very pretty! I bet people asked whether they were for sale as well. I know I would have.

Tina, Simply elegant in their simplicity! Less is so often more...or just enough. Love these!
This idea would be so sweet with little linen or muslin bags filled with lavender too and tied with string. Loved visiting here this morning!

I love your idea of the little hearts. I can see so many wonderful ideas as I check out my friends that I follow blogs and find other neat ones that somebody has told me about. Thanks for sharing.

Your stamped lace hearts turned out so pretty Tina!
Thank you for your kind comment on my blog today!
I told my cousin Stefanie that she is a lucky girl having got you as her next swap partner!
Yes the world is so small ;-)
