♥ Toile and Ticking...French and Shabby ♥

The current challenge at the Let's Get Shabby Challenge Blog is to use Toile and Ticking on your card. Well, I didn't have any real good ticking paper other than this Webster's Pages striped paper. But I think it's just as good. ;) You should see what the DT created! Just beautiful!


I also used lace and Prima trim, some seam binding, a charm, chipboard heart which I painted white, distressed it a bit and then added some glitter to it. I also used a Melissa Frances keyhole and rub-on transfer, punched butterfly, Liquid Pearls and some Pink Paislee Crystals on a chain. And that beautiful French Label is from The Graphics Fairy.


And lastly, I went back to that Consignment Shop today. I picked up a beautiful half moon shaped table for my foyer, an old birdcage just perfect for my "Grandma's Attic" space (see 2 posts down) and this gorgeous stool! Can you believe it was only $25?! It's perfect for inside my closet for when I put on stockings, shoes, etc.


Have a wonderful nighty night!!
