Natural Canvas Pillow With A Little Paris Thrown In

I have been in a natural canvas kind of mood for awhile now and love creating with these natural colors and textures.
This was made today and is a pillow with a vintage crochet doily on the front. Pretty fringe on the sides too.

I picked this vintage doily up yesterday while I was out antiqueing at my favorite mall. The beauty of natural canvas is the many colors that you can find running through the threads. Depending on the area you cut, there can be pink, green, blue, black fibers, just to name a few.

Three vintage buttons and a vintage lace bow were added to the front, along with some florals, pearls and a silvertone charm.

I love the textures of handmade paper roses, silk roses and silk florals. Each has it's own unique look and feel.

The soft presence of something French, never hurts.

Sometimes all a girl needs are pearls (faux of course) and a trip to Paris via a lovely charm! : )
I am off to list this on my website Someplace In Thyme. Have a great day and thanks so much for stopping by.

  3. Very pretty Char. You are so talented.

  4. Wow I do love this pillow. I have to run by your shop before I leave here.
    Thank you Char so much for leaving such a kind comment about my daughter. I have been so angry over that since it happened that I can't get anything done. Even blogging.
    She is such a sweet kind person so it was such a tragic thing to happen. I may go get her tomorrow if I can drive and keep her here a few days.
    Once again thank you for coming by and commenting. I appreciate you


I love to hear from you, so please let me know what you think.
