Days Gone By!
I absolutely love cream and black together, especially when paired with vintage images! This old sewing machine from OCL's Days Gone By is one of my favorites! My mom actually has an old treadle machine much like this one! She taught me to sew on a much newer Singer, and it is a skill I'm very grateful to have been given. I used to sew most of my own clothes, but now I mainly sew on my cards! :)
This Teresa Collins paper reminds me of beautiful fabrics: dainty calico, delicate dotted Swiss, and masculine pinstripes. I punched an eyelet through the sentiment banner and then used a few dressmaker pins to attach it to a May Arts gingham bow...LOVE how all these elements work so seamlessly together!
