A shabby heart

I just had to join in the Shabby Tea Room challenge this week .... "Lavender and Lace" ....



Need I say anymore? (sigh)
 Such a sweet combination ... makes me think of romance, old vintage finds, postcards and love ...



This adorable antique doily was sent to me from Chriss Blagrave ... my swap partner ... it is so precious and I am pleased that I have found a home for it .... on display where is ought to be


On this hanging heart ... drawn and cut by hand and put together with love ... different lilac papers randomly cut and all stitched together ...


       covered with various stamps from Eline Huis and a little printed masking tape by Tim Holtz ...


A silver crystal pendant drops and glistens in the light ...



More lace ... ribbons ... a cameo ... tulle and of course lilacs with a glittered rose ... drop crystals and a butterfly with sparkle ... and my shabby heart is complete ... 

Till soon
Ros

Definitely a very romantic creation. Is gorgeous. I might try to do something similar for my craft room. Oh the masking tape is from Tim Holtz I thought it was home made. Still a great idea to give it a go.
