Sometimes decorating ideas start from a small or unusual item. I this case mine started with a vintage hanger. When I was in Arizona last month I had a chance to visit a wonderful antique show called Sweet Salvage. I picked up this great wire hanger, once home the question was, what to do with the hanger besides hang it in the closet?????
I remembered I had a crocheted shirt that my grandmother made for my mom back in probably the late 60's. I never remember my mom wearing it and to be honest I can't imagine it fitting her it is tiny! That is the problem with trying to wear vintage clothes, they are soooo small. Anyway out of the box it came and on to the hanger.
I then hung them from a ribbon in front of the window in my office/studio/craft room.
Details of the crocheting…..
I feel this looks like a lacy collage, it blended well with the lace already hanging in the window.
The pictures came to come out very sepia looking even though I took them on a bright sunny day. I like the look it seems to go with the vintage lacy feel.
I'm trying to get things I like or love out of boxes, the basement or where ever I have them hidden and display them so I can enjoy them daily. This has made my "studio" jammed with beautiful things. In this room less is not more…..
