Vintage Kitchen Bazaar...

Hope you're having a great weekend! I've been dreaming up vintage kitchen themed crafts for the last week and cannot wait any longer to show you the goodies I have planned for my etsy shop. I've been working hard and am thrilled with how everything turned out. I will be listing it all in my shop TONIGHT (Sunday) about 9 pm (Central Daylight Time)...basically as soon as the kids go to bed and I can list them!! A bit of a take-off on the dresses I sold last time, I made these vintage inspired aprons with Amy Butler patterned paper and vintage crepe paper. LOVE how they turned out!
I will also offer these retro containers filled with notions and other treasures. They include various vintage aprons and other kitchen goodies as well.

This vintage cake pan (is that what it is?!) is filled with rolled up vintage crepe paper in a rainbow of colors. I was beyond thrilled when I found this crepe paper. Vintage crepe paper is not like what we have now. It's more elastic and can be used to make great rosettes, trims or other embellishements on your projects.

I also have KITS!!! I have 4 different kits. Some come with an adorable mini pink collander with the supplies, others with these neat retro ice cream cups. So cute! They're filled with pom pom trim, vintage seam binding, crepe paper, flowers, velvet leaves, vintage wallpaper, 2 sheets of patterned paper, a template and instructions to make 2 aprons. You will love them!!


See you in a few hours in the shop!

Wow! Everything looks so wonderful! You've put me right in a crafty mood. The little "pan" you show in your picture is a brioche (sp) pan... it's a kind of yummy dense bread :)
