Vintage Vignette

A couple of weeks ago, I traveled to Dallas to go to Canton to the Flea Market.  I started early on Wednesday morning and stopped at every little town along the way and looked and shopped.

Somewhere along the way, I saw the cutest arrangement and had to come home and try my hand at it (that sounds better than copy it). 

It was a very simple arrangement but it caught my attention.  I started out with a small board out of the garage that I painted off white and sanded down a little.

I then took a vintage muffin tin I had and screwed it into the board for stability.  Then I added an old cake flour box and a small tin cup.  I glued the box and screwed the tin cup into the board.  I added to that an old spoon with a red handle which I glued a couple of places.

Ta-da!! It's done.

I put it on a lace doily and laid an old crocheted potholder across the front and I am very pleased with the look.


Till next time, Judy
