My grandma had a large selection of rick rack and this is what is left of it. I wish we could still buy it for 19 cents a piece. This dress is made from an old bed sheet that I found at a thrift store for 2.00. I used this pattern and I love the whole "housewivey" feel of this dress.
Grandma would've been proud.

Vintage trims that I inherited from my great-grandmother. I love them all so much, even the ones covered in stains. I can just picture her spilling her morning coffee all over it.
Vintage inspired hair clip/broche that I made.
Here I used some of grandmas lace on a pair of bloomers.
The lace on these bloomers isn't really vintage, but I love the look.

I'm so proud of this curtain. I almost couldn't believe that I made it when I saw it hanging there.
I also made the pillows and a seat cushion for this little bench but haven't been back to take a finished picture with the cushion. Look for more photos in the future.

I cut the elastic waist out of it, machine smocked the top and added some straps from my scrap pile.
