Mother’s Day Throwback – Vintage Decoupaged Plates

plate3
Since Mother’s Day is quickly approaching, I wanted to share with you one of my favorite gift ideas for this special day. When I worked in the craft industry, I had the pleasure of working with so many talented artists and crafters. One of my favorites of all time is  Cathie Fillian. A few years ago, I was inspired to do a series of plates honoring my favorite women after I saw a set of plates that Cathie created using Mod Podge.  I presented my parents and in-laws with these decoupaged plates honoring my two grandmothers and my husband’s grandmothers. I was lucky to find romantic, vintage pictures of each of the four women, that were then photocopied and paired with pretty scrapbook papers and cut out phrases that fit their personalities.

The first photo is of Eunice: My dad’s mom. She was the quintessential modern woman. Avid fisher, homemaker and an all-around lovely person. Erin’s antique re-do features her dressers.

Mod podge sewing case

During my latest antique/vintage store digs I came across an old-school metal toolbox which I instantly got the idea to repurpose into a case to hold all of my new found sewing tools (I wasn’t playing when I said Mimi G inspired me!). It had lots of personality (read: bangs and nicks) and was a darling robin’s egg blue. I decided to keep the outside “as-is” but the inside was a little rusted so I felt the need to somehow cover the inner portion. Repaint? Nope. Contact paper? Unh-uh. Fabric mod podge? DING DING DING!! And of course I wanted to use some of the wax print fabric I had lying around.

I’ve always wondered who came up with the term “spring cleaning”. Spring is definitely a time to reset and refresh, almost like New Year’s, except minus the booze, midnight kissing, and empty promises to run half marathons and learn swahili…but I guess that comes with Spring Break (amiright??).

But I digress.

I took advantage of the advent of spring to fix up and reorganize my crafting space. Something long overdue since I could no longer keep track of all of my supplies. In doing so, I came up with several small projects which I’ll feature individually. [Read more…]
