Sing Sweet Nightingale

It began



with a beautiful old door escutcheon,



found in an antique store



after a calligraphy class.



Along with three shades of amethyst seam binding



and a photograph of an English garden,



the Fairy Tale began.

Holy Schmackers, Alisa! That turned out brilliant. I never doubted, but it's even better than I imagined it would be! Great job.

It's so lovely Alisa! Isn't it exciting when a project is complete and it turns out so amazing? I'm glad you are taking time to craft. I have a few of those key hole hardware thingys and made some door hangers with them last summer. It's crazy how rusty hardware is so charming to us..LOL!

Have a great weekend!

Alisa, this is absolutely beautiful!! Can you just imagine what the people who once owned these pieces as usable items would think, then someone cast them away as junk!
Peeled paint, rust and tossed into a pile of seemingly useless items has become something so pretty once again!
Great job!!
Diane
