This is a window that I have been working on to display jewelery in the mall.  The top window has a fan in it and I decoupaged orchid rice paper behind it.  The fan shows different stages in a girls wedding.  The bottom window I took a piece of poster board and glued antique lace all over it.  Then added bits of jewelery and beads.  The hooks are for holding the jewelery.  I added a wire to the top to hang it and another wire in the middle to display vintage clip earrings.  I think it will make a very good display.  I have lots of vintage jewelery and it sure needs to be sold.

 And this is my attempt to make a little shoe.  I used all vintage material for it.  I had a little baby shoe so I cut me a pattern from it.  The pink lining was from an old gown that I got at an estate sale.  I kind of crazy quilted the lace on the lining for the top of the shoe. 
 I covered a piece of card board with the pink lining and put inside the shoe to give it some shape.
 And last of all I added the pearl buttons.  It looks just like a little vintage baby shoe.
I just loved the little shoes that Dawn and Lisa made so thought I would see what I could do.  They are really fun to make.
  Hope all of you have a wonderful day!!!!
