I Find So Much Old Double Knit Polyester Dresses And Bouses On My Thrift Hunts And I Always Love The Fabric But Hate The Garment. So I Found A Way To Recycle The Old Clothing And Transform These Unwanted Items Into Amazing Garments!
This Tassel I Found on a Handbag. I Think it Looks Better as a Necklace!
The Skirt I Hemed from Below the Knee into a Mini, It has These Great Cut Out Pockets! The Blouse Went With a Dress that had the Blouse Over a Slip Top aAttached to a Mstching Skirt but I took it Apart to Make a Crop Top
Vintage Hippo Bathroom Toothbrush and Soap Holder!
This hippo holder has no markings, I have found two of these holders and they are painted different and the holes are different so I feel that they may have been a do it yourself kit or an arts and crafts project
I use my bathroom holder a little different since we use pump soap and only have two toothbrushes
This Weeks Amazing Find Is This Antique Iron Bottle Opener!
I started collecting these vintage bottle openers after Christmas shopping for my Mom. She has a great collection that I wanted to add to. Some of the cast iron bottle openers that you find are replicas or are remade from recovered molds then crudely painted to look antique.
Its very hard to tell the difference!
I think that this is original due to the smoothed edges of the iron from age and good amount of rust that covered it when I recovered it from the local flea market
I graduated from FSU with a degree in Apparel Design and combined my love for vintage with my love for dress making in youthanizeing vintage garbs. I have always had a passion for the eras before me since I can remember. The daughter of my father who collects and restores old classic cars and my mother who filled her home with the most fascinating antiques, I guess it just seemed natural.
