Shopping Our Stash - Days of Yore!

Hello, Crafty Ones!
Shopping Our Stash  would like to see your
Vintage or Shabby Chic creations.
I look forward to seeing lots and lots of distressing!
Thes fabulous flowers were included in a bouquet of flowers given to us to lift our spirits. We lost The Hubster's mother and my sister within two weeks.  I just knew these would be wonderful in my Vintage Vase.
I love "engineered" projects!  This year I want to try as many new designs as I can find or think up in my own head.  I purchased these hinges to use on some cigar boxes I am up-cycling.  When I saw Alexandra's wonderful YouTube Video, I decided I would try her technique for using these closers on a standard box design.   I have a step tutorial for creating a post it note holder that creates the same box but the note holder tray can be made from less substantial paper (card stock instead of chipboard) and it does not require the closer.  You can find that tutorial here: RLD-Inky

Keepsake Box with Swing Hasp Closer
(using The Graphic 45® French Country Collection)
This elegant cut sheet from the G45 French Country Collection was perfect for the Crackled Bud Vase.  I love these bottles.  Good thing I like my probiotic drink.  Guaranteed bottle supply!
 Stamping on your crackled bottle will add to the vintage look!

Thanks for stopping by and be sure to enter your project into our challenge this week at:  SHOPPING OUR STASH!
