Creating with my Vintage Finds

I´ve finally started creating with
my finds from the summers flea markets.

Remember these two?

A vintage grater and a strainer.
I´ve made them into sweet little christmas decorations

the strainer got a sweet little vintage girl inside
with a twig, moss and a little bit of cheesecloth

I´ve added some chandelier prismes
at the button - also found at the flea
and with a piece of vintage lace added as hanger
it turned out like this.

The grater is altered like a little cone.
Inside is a sweet little crochet doily,
a vintage wooden spool, some velvet leaves
and a vintage candle holder
used on the christmas tree in 'the old days'

decorated with vintage lace pieces
and a sweet vintage fabric image

this is how it looks like afterwards

Not too early for christmas, right ;o)

Wishing you all a beautiful
and creative day

Tina ♥♥♥
