This week I finally got to do what I've been wanting to do for weeks...dig into some old papers and embellishments and play. It's been so long that I found some neat little trinkets and things that I had completely forgot I even had! When I dug into my wallpaper stash, I found the first rolls of vintage wallpaper I ever bought. About 11 years ago a really neat antique shop opened up nearby. I mean really neat...great old chipped up pieces of painted furniture, tons and tons of ironstone pieces, great mercury glass. Most of it all priced way out of my range but I loved to go anyway. One day my aunt was in visiting and I brought her there. She ended up knowing the owner and as they were chatting and catching up, I was snooping around the store and came across some old rolls of wallpaper. They were really OLD! I immediately fell in love with them but wasn't sure what I would do with them all so I only bought a few. Boy do I regret it now! Unfortunately, the shop closed shortly after.
The only thing I did do with them at the time was cut a few small pieces and put them in some old wood frames that I still have in my bedroom. When collecting vintage wallpaper became so popular, I still never used them because I wanted to save them. Besides that, they are falling apart. They are so fragile that when I start unrolling them they always rip. Today I decided that I'm not going to keep "saving"...saving for what or when??? And you know, it's a lot more fun when you are using something that is just so pretty! I also made some more little calendars and some wallpaper pockets. I didn't get pictures of all them because I ran out of good light...hate that!I love how simple this Bingo card looks!
Wow....two posts in two days! Let's hope I can keep it up!
