Romantic Rags

I have been having so much fun ripping, tearing, gluing, tying  and playing with fabric the last few days! 

I've made roses.....
wreaths.....

Shabby oil lamps....
garlands.....
Not rags,  but I needed a little something else in the vignette...lol!

I've made hanging rag chandys......

To make my shabby oil lamp,  I sprayed a clear lamp with white paint....(it was not an antique one, just a yard sale find)  I then distressed it with sand paper and added one of my cotton roses,
My shabby white wreath was made with a dollar store styro wreath that I tied strips of  chenille, cotton, and sheer fabric to.

I am calling my creations "Romantic Rags".

  14. The fabric flowers and wreaths are wonderful, but what I really focused in on is the teacups and pearls wall hanging. Just fabulous!!! It adds just enough of the creamy whites and a different texture to offset the white softness surrounding it. Just great!!
