Memories of Love

Have you caught a glimpse of this gorgeous fabric in your local quilt or craft store?  It's called Memories of Love by Maywood Studios.  I bet when you read the title of this post you thought were about to step into a sappy romance novel, didn't you?  Sorry to disappoint!  But I am in love with this fabric...  Oh sweet dusty pink roses, be still my heart!  I bought one yard nearly a month ago and have been hoarding saving it for a special project!  As I gathered some recent estate sale finds to take to the shop today, I decided I needed a pretty backdrop/display to pull everything together.  I quickly and easily assembled this "memo" board with a painted frame, foam board, vintage trim, wooden clothespins and my trusty hot glue gun! 

This lovely vintage lamp didn't quite make it to the shop this evening.  It parked it's pretty self on top of my craft cabinet today and there it remains!  It looked so sweet and cozy that I couldn't bring myself to pack it up!  Maybe next week.  Maybe.

Aren't these vintage earrings awesome?  I have been collecting some really interesting antique jewelry lately.  I have a few fun ideas for them that I will be sharing in the near future!

I had such fun adding new treasures to my booth space this evening and changing up the display.  And I think that creating this memo board today really got my crafty juices flowing!  I can't wait to get started on some more projects.  I still have a good sized piece of that lovely fabric left!  You just might be seeing those gorgeous dusty pink roses again this week!

Thank you so very much for your sweet visit!
Best Wishes and Blessings,
