New Vintage finds and Upcycled

French Country Cottage Half Wall Vase or Planter I accidently broke this vase so upclycled it into a French country style wall ornament.
I sanded the edges and whitewashed the surface sanding it back to give a weathered look. I then drilled holes and added sculptural wire at the back to hold a plant or flowers. I then painted the  flowers with acrylic paints and Voila!  A French style half wall vase or planter for your garden or indoor wall.

Fabric Dyeing. Textiles & Paper.

I’m so hooked on dyeing lately, so, here is my latest batch of cold water dyed fabrics and papers. I’ve had these dyes since the 70’s and they still worked really well. I was able to keep diluting the dye bath to get very subtle tints. I’ve also been doing a bit of experimenting with rust dyeing and absolutely love it

On my other blog Outlook8studio I have a tutorial to share with you on rust dyeing

Have fun!

5 metal icing or cream decorating nozzles
1 vegetable peeler with bean stringer on opposite end
1 large bone handled ,stainless steel carving fork

The drawstring bag is hand-made,decorated with vintage fabrics that have been home dyed. There is a pocket on the outside to tuck in the little vintage icing nozzles.Once everything is tucked inside it can be tied off with some 1950/s underwear ribbon (new from old stock)

The word Kitchenalia has been hand written across the top of the pocket
