Raspberry Shop - Glendale, KY - Wall Hanging

This is the second in a series of wall hangings that I am making that depict places in Kentucky. This is another old building in Glendale that is used today for a shop. I took the picture two years ago so I'm not sure that it still has the same name. The hanger is another piece of that wonderful old ceiling tin from the burned down building in Rineyville.

The background fabric is a rose chintz. I collaged other fabrics that include, rose bark cloth, green & brown cotton, grey and pink cotton and a deep pink ribbed thick cotton. I embellished the piece with antique lace on the header and a generous piece of delicate multi layered lace along the bottom. Sewn to the lace at the bottom is a piece of old costume jewelry of pink beads. The header is the old tin and is attached to the fabric with small mother of pearl buttons. The tin is hung with a piece of trim that is also attached with mother of pearl shank buttons.

Robin, your shop is so nice. Thanks for posting your shop's information. I hadn't been there between the time I took the picture of your shop two years ago and posted the picture of the wall hanging at the end of August.

This piece is on consignment at "True Kentucky" in Glendale.
