Sonia @ Creating Vintage Charm is hosting a blog party today to celebrate the launch of her new magazine Creating Vintage Charm. The first issue of the magazine was just released and is available to order online. It looks to be a wonderful magazine full of beautiful, vintage creations from a number of talented artists.
Sonia's blog party gives all of us an opportunity to show off something that has added a little vintage charm to our lives. To participate, or to just see what fellow bloggers have created, link back to Sonia's blog. It's sure to be a great party!
For the party today I want to share something I recently repurposed that added a little vintage charm to my studio and helped showcase something I love, vintage sewing notions.
My mother taught me how to sew when I was a young girl on this Singer Featherweight sewing machine.
And old census records document that my great, great grandfather (Mamie's father) worked as a tailor throughout his adult life.
So it is no wonder that vintage sewing notions are one of my favorite collections.
When I found this little cabinet at a thrift store a couple of weeks ago I envisioned it as a display for a few of my vintage sewing notions.
The cabinet just needed a little facelift to give it the vintage charm I was looking for.
I spray painted the piece Heirloom White and, after it was dry, lightly sanded it to reveal just a little bit of the original finish.
I chose some of my favorite pearl buttons,
Have a great weekend.
