Keep Calm and Sew On!

Keep Calm 1 My 82 year old mom has been doing some decluttering of her home lately. She and my dad collected antiques and vintage nick knacks. My dad did lots of furniture refinishing–maybe that’s why I enjoy it. It’s been 6 years since my dad passed away. I think my mom is now ready to give away things she no longer needs.

These 4 frames were in the “take whatever you want” pile at her house. They were originally black. They have domed glass on the front–pretty cool. I painted them red–one of my studio accent colors.

I remembered I had these stamps  from Tim Holtz that I had never used. I tried stamping first on fabric–not much luck. Probably had the wrong ink and paint. I opted for paper.

I hung them along with a ribbon right outside my fabric closet.
