Handmade “Vintage” Bobbins and Spools

Sara of Major Hoff Takes a Wife has a special place in her heart for bobbins and spools. Not only has she long been a seamstress, but Sara’s great grandmother worked as a weaver in a cotton mill. You can find old bobbins at antique stores, flea markets, Etsy, and eBay, OR you can follow Sara’s tutorial to make your own! How cute are these that Sara displayed on her mantel? I love the lace wrapped around it!

DIY Gold Bird Art

This morning I shared a DIY pinboard created by Shauna at Satori Design for Living. If you loved that touch of gold she added to her frame, here’s another gilding project from Shauna that brings on the glitz. Shauna was inspired by a tray featuring a silver leafed bird motif to create framed art with a similar look. All she did was print an image from the computer, trace it onto specialty paper, and paint it in with the gilding. I love that you could use this technique with any design you like to create fab seasonal art – leaves, pinecones, antlers… The possibilities are endless!
