Breathing new life into vintage treasures

This week I have been being CREATIVE. Call it breathing new life in to vintage treasures, recycling, updating...call it what you will its been great fun. Take these 1950's beauties, ok some are more beautiful than others, and some ''only a mother could love"  but where there's a vintage will, there's a vintage way:


Then take a vintage coffee sack.......



or a Vintage flag.......



Or some vintage fabric from the stash......... and Voila !!!!









Reinvented, recycled, restyled and at least another fifty years ahead of them....God I Love Vintage !!!!!

Some of these beauties will make an appearance on the stall, Vintage Influence, H5, Waverley Antiques, or I am happy to take commissions and I can post overseas too.
