Taking vintage treasures out of the trunks and attics and making heirlooms for today.

I am a lover of vintage linen, hankies, crochet, embroidery and lace. Basically if it is from our past, I love it. All of these items were once used in all the homes and all young ladies were taught the art of handwork. Of course, all of these treasures were not perfect but they were used and they were loved. I rescue these little bits and pieces and make beautiful pillows, wall quilts and pretty items that can be used and displayed in todays homes.
I think it is a crime to throw away or just store away these little treasures. They should be used and on display, but how do you display these pretties? If they are upcycled into a one of a kind pillow or quilt then you have a new family treasured heirloom to show in your home for years to come.
It is important to honor the stitches from the past, these are the things that give our homes and our gifts to others character and special meaning.
So, I like to think I am an artist that never met a vintage piece that I didn't love!
