Creating with my Vintage Finds 2

Those of you who have been visiting
over here before, have seen these among the
summers flea market finds


old worn fabric coffee filters.
I love the colors on these and thought they would
be great to create with

and so I did

with some of my vintage lace 
added to the edges

some vintage jewelry pieces
with rhinestones

and some more lace

Cheesecloth with sweet images
of vintage children

still love to create with
those fabric images.
Aren´t they just cute....

This coffee filter is really special
I´ve decorated all 4 parts on this one.

Here they are all together

cute little baskets
or cones

all ready to decorate with.
Add a little greenery and they are all
ready for Christmas

I´ve added some vintage paper stribes inside this
with some old paper, some velvet leaves, a pod
 and a sweet little christmas tree.

This one may be for me ;o)
Not sure I can part with this one.

Thank you so much for
visiting today sweet friends.

Wishing you all a beautiful day

Tina ♥♥♥

Wonderful idea, Tina- they are so sweet-
Håber du har det bedre-og at du beholder den skønne aflange selv-vi skal også forkæles lidt sommetider :)
