~ New Shop Items ~

HI Friends! I've been a busy beaver this week trying to get some new items added to my Etsy Shop! I love crafting and designing items I hope you will love. I've featured a few of them on today's post and hope you'll stop by my shop and see what's new! What gorgeous weather we are having in NY this week, it's about time the rain stopped and I can feel summer right around the corner! I hope you are all having a beautiful week too!

The shadowbox below and above is a featured item in my shop , I love using feed sack fabrics and vintage images, and I hope to design a lot more of these in the coming weeks too. It's hard to balance my indoor work with such great sunshine and weather, but I'm trying to do a little of both these days ;)

The images I've added are all from my collection of vintage canning labels ( above ) or from my collection of vintage cookbooks ( below ). This Pie Sign was so much fun to make, it features images from the 1950's and I also used some accents that I hope add a Summer Picnic feel too! It measures 15" x 6" and the edges are trimmed in vintage lace too. And the shadowboxes measure about 9" x 6".

Full view....

I used Vintage seed pack images here on this one below and the outside edges are covered in a sweet polka dot red grosgrain ribbon. Cherry and strawberry decals and fabric baskets add a touch of whimsy :)

Center up close... You can click on the pictures for a more up close view too...

Edge view...

In this shadowbox below I tried to create a vintage kitchen feel and it's backed with a soft blue gingham wallpaper. Home Sweet Home says it all... :) Some of the images are backed and raised to create the 3-D effect. In this one below the 2 Jam jars are raised off the background too!


I had so much fun creating the new additions and can't wait to work on more and get the shop stocked up for summer accessories and goodies! You can click on this link to get to my Etsy Shop or see my side bar preview on the right hand side of the page too....

I hope you are all enjoying a creative and beautiful week! Thanks so much for stopping in and being such wonderful friends! I hope you find something that will fit perfectly into your home or be a handmade unique gift to someone else!...

I'm off to create again and enjoy this beautiful Spring we are having too!

Love and appreciation!

You have been a busy girl.
Those are so cute. You are very creative and these show your style. Happy to hear you are having nice weather. This has been a strange Spring everywhere, I think. Always love seeing what you are working on.

Just a little something from Judy said...

I just visited your Etsy shop and found myself wanting one of everything. You have the prettiest way of creating things for the home. Each of them have the feel of an warm, welcoming, country kitchen, and when you give them to people, there is not a chance that they would already have one. This was a special blog visit...as it always is here:)

Hi Cynthia! What beautiful creations. I just came by for a quick visit and was blown away by your lovely handiwork. Just gorgeous my dear. I love the soft, vintage feel you gave to those shadow boxes. I'm sure they will fly out of your Etsy! Just wonderful.
blessings,

Hi Cynthia, I love the things you make and love the colors you use too. But I have a question for you about your kitchen...I love the wallpaper! What is the name of it and where can I order it? I am thinking about redoing my kitchen and would love to use a wallpaper like that! Thank you and have a great week...
