Next up…..no surprise!!!…………

Yup….another hanger! Just call me a lady obsessed! I had been gifted an interesting vintage piece not long ago and, after looking at it a bit to figure out just ‘what’ it was, the ideas began to swirl. IMG_0327. What is not easily seen in the photo is the small ‘casing’ stitching at the top of the piece which would allow it to be hung on (what I imagine) a wire. Yes, this is a curtain panel/valance in one piece. Years ago, I remember visiting a relative who lived on a farm in south central Minnesota (Albert Lea area) and there were window curtain panels that were suspended by wire, twisted around nails/screws at either end. It is what they had to work with. Anyhow, I separated the valance from the larger portion and proceeded with the hanger idea.IMG_0328 IMG_0329. I was wanting a bit of color in this one and red/white is one of my faves! Please, notice that this is not a pillowcase item. Hanger candidates could be the ends of table runners whose aging has not been “graceful” resulting in the middle areas being rendered unusable.

I will leave you to ponder what you have in your vintage “stash” that might qualify. Stay tuned………..

      It is one of the most exciting aspects of this process and the one that has drawn (sucked??? LOL!) me in totally!!!!! Adds a whole new dimension to the artistic designing. Hugs……..

  2. Better not let Beth Ann see this as red is her favorite color. 🙂

    Your ability to “see” something in a vintage piece and then recreate it continues to impress me. You are a true master artist.
