Treasure Box

While sharing my published wall hanging with a friend at Thanksgiving, she said that she had a large collection of photos and ephemera that she wanted to send to me if I wanted them.  If I wanted them - was there any question?  Thank you so much Gwen.

The package arrived a few days ago.  Want a peek inside?

There are photo albums and tapestries.

Handwritten diaries: 1923, 1925, 1926, 1927 & 1928 -  I believe these are all from the same person.

There are many Cabinet Cards.

Dozens of interesting snapshots.

Lots of ephemera - peering into past lives.

Don't you just love a treasure box?

Fabric Religious Icons

Recently, I sewed a few religious icons.  The images are of the Virgin Mary and the baby Jesus that are from a Lunagirl collage sheet.  I printed the image sheet onto a prepared fabric sheet.  I used vintage fabrics and other items to create each one.
