And here is a photo of the same vignette from this year. Fresh hydrangeas! This is in my dining room. The dresser was practically free, as we had a gift certificate from our wedding to an antique store. The hat stand here is a broken lamp I found in the trash. My mom gave me the heart vase and beaded lamp. The pink depression glass was my mom's, who gave it to my sister but she has no place to store it~ goodie for me! (There's lots more where that came from!) The little Titanic era dress form was a gift from my MIL, and next to it in the cherub frame is a photo of Nova after his first bath. Oh! and the "Walk Over Shoe" print of the girl in the background was a gift from my girlfriend Linda. (We call her Zsa Zsa!)
I made the quilted ornaments. You can find instructions here.
I use 4 different fabrics on mine tho, so get extra fabric if you like that look. I would like to make a giant one some day! Here are some photos I took while crafting these for a Secret Santa Swap with friends. The recipient of my gift loves violets and the color lavender. Katie thought she'd help me cut out the squares. I found the cutting grid in the neighbor's trash!
