Vintage Goodness-White Wednesday


Hope you are having a joyful day!!

Things here have been a bit more quiet...
a welcome change for sure!!

But wedding plans are in full swing!!
April 7th will be here, uh...
in about 2 weeks!!!!!!!!

Soooo...whatcha been up to?? 

I have been trying new things, and attempting
to think out of the box...which doesn't seem
to come very naturally to me!

I have had a small collection of vintage door knobs
for about a year that I have just longed to create with,
 but hadn't thought of any original ideas that made my heart sing.

That is... until now!

This is my spring makeover on one of my knobs,
and it makes me smile!


The knob is white porcelain, and got painted white
at some point in time.



 I used different vintage components..bits of vintage
French linen back the leaves, a vintage rhinestone button is the center
vintage lace is the ruffle on the flower, vintage seam binding bow.

 This was just too much fun!


And just look at the chippy, rusty, timeworn goodness on this knob!
Pure joy!!

I have more knobs 
so I will be making a literal garden
of these little charmers!!  Each one will be different, 
and my original design. 

Linking up to Kathleen's fabulous
White Wednesday!!

Have a glorious day!!

I'm really an 80 degree kinda girl...too bad I've lived here my whole life....it's freezing this time of year. I crave the heat more and more as I get older. Enjoy it for me:-)
