Vintage Craft Creations

Over the years when I'm out
on a Saturday morning treasure hunting
I come across a Vintage Craft Creation!

And last weekend I found this
whimsical pair..
I almost passed on them

But it's always fun to get some 
creative ideas
from the past..

With this pair I think the funniest
part is the styrofoam cup
that has been melted in the microwave
just enough to alter the shape..

The large chenille pipe cleaners
full of fluff
and sweet millinery adding
sweet detail...

Well wait I've changed my mind
 the funniest part..
is the head is mounted backwards..

Very Funny!
Happy Tuesday~

I ran across a tulle snowman a few weeks ago. He was about a foot tall. Darling hand made but dingy. I passed on him, but I wished I would have taken a picture to recreate him. These bunnies are full of inspiration...tail and all...smiles...Renee

It is fun to see what people have created in the past (and not so distant past). Fun!
