Its been some time since I had the chance to create anything (my happy place is pulling double duty as a storage room) so I decided to join this month's tag swap. I thought it might motivate me to start addressing the space. While clean-up and reorganizing remains a journey, I created this lovely tag for my partner and a very sweet lady, Randi (aka Get Scrappy). Randi's all about family, loves pinks and whites, and is crazy about shabby chic!
To make her tag special, I decided to use a beautiful turn of the century photo of my Great Aunt Nora as the centerpiece. Then I scoured my goody bags from previous swaps with several dear friends here at sb and selected a few shabby vintage items (white satin roses, pearls, lace, ribbon and crocheted doily) and added a few of my favorite things, including a handmade stickpin, to create this ‘Oh So Shabby' vintage tag. The design process took me a while, but when it started coming together, I just loved how it all turned out!
To wrap it up, I embellished the simple linen wrap with a handmade rhinestone, lace, and ribbon bow and tucked in a sweet little vintage dolly image that I knew Randi liked. I really enjoyed creating this special gift for her and hope that it finds a spot somewhere in her happy place! :) Thanks for dropping by! Your encouraging comments make my day! Hugs ~ Dawna
