SPRING BLUES by Rust: Vintage Inspired Design

I can never get enough of these old blue mason jars.
(I know there are lots of reproduction jars out there nowadays, but their colors just don't compare to these vintage ones).
I took a trip to a local pottery supply store where I found all the supplies to turn some in to liquid candle holders.
The great thing about these is that you can use them outside and the wind doesn't blow them out.
Happy day!

PRINTED BURLAP by Rust: Vintage Inspired Design

Here's an easy project for left over pieces of burlap....

Simply cut your piece of  burlap to fit over a piece of printer paper,
then tape it to the piece of paper and feed it through your printer...
I was amazed at how well the graphic printed on to the burlap.  My
husband was amazed (actually distraught) that I put burlap through the printer!  Not
sure that I'll be doing that again anytime soon ;)...
Happy day!

How on earth did it get to be August already?  My but time flies....I've been busy with
the usual life stuff and having a great summer...
I have long been a fan of Rachel Ashwell & have
just returned from a trip to California where I got to FINALLY get to one of
her amazing SHABBY COUTURE stores (in Santa Monica).  It was
heaven on earth!
 I will post some pictures of
my new Rachel Ashwell shabby chic bedding one day soon!

In the meantime here are some shabby bottles that
 I embellished.
 I stuck old earring to the center of these new crosses in order
to vintage-fy them and simply glued them to these old bottles.
Happy summer days!
