Picker Sisters I -10 Home Store - Gone

My sisters and I enjoyed the Picker Sisters series, and really like some of the creative furniture and accessories they made from the rusted junk.  My sister, who lives in LA, went to take a look at the I - 10 Home store on Melrose, but it is closed with a for lease sign on the windows.  Too bad!  We were looking forward to seeing the creations from the show.

"Emily" - Wall Hanging

I finished Emily's wall hanging.  I decided to use the original photograph in this piece rather than printing the photograph onto fabric as I usually do.  The background fabric is a pale turquoise and gold printed vintage fabric.  The largest lace section is from the remnants of an antique dress.  I used additional antique lace, mother of pearl buttons and antique brocade ribbon.  The piece is attached to a vintage advertisement hanger for display.  The overall piece is about 16" x 29" at the widest points.
