1930's House Creation, Final Creation thus far

Here is my final~~at this moment in time~~Creation from the 1930's Scandia House.
 I found a box of China in the house. Most pieces were broken and it was not a complete set. The only tea cup and the gravy boat are in this picture.
 I also found, what I initially thought was a pencil sharpener....and upon looking it up on the Internet and finding out it is a Vintage European Butter Churn, and in working condition!

I soaked the China in water to get the cardboard box to actually remove itself from the dishes, then cleaned them with Bleach to make sure I could touch them! 
I glued the Plate, Saucer and Tea Cup together to Create this little stand. These Vintage renewed stands are all the rave right now.

Indoor shot.

The Butter Churn is so cool that I decided to just clean it up and display it on a ledge above my Kitchen.

A little closer view!

I hope you enjoyed seeing what I've Created from These minimum 81 year old pieces!
Thanks you so much for tuning in!
Until next time.

1930's House Creations Part 3, Drawers

Along with the 1930's Bathroom Cabinet Doors from the ~about to be demolished~ house in Scandia Alberta Canada, I scooped up the Drawers from the Cabinet. ~Double Jumping in the air~

Here are my Creations....

I painted all 3 drawers Aegean Blue. I picked 3 Vintage Paris Architectural Pictures from Thee Best Vintage Website on the planet, Graphics Fairy, and printed them in Black and White on tissue paper and glued them to the drawers. I added some steel wire on the back of the drawers so they can be hung on the wall. Plus some of my Shabby Style = Breathtaking! SERIOUSLY...the contrast between the Black and the Blue is remarkable! Then,  the added bonus of my Shabby Style...I  hugged each piece!
I also decorated them up with some of my personal accessories, the Sky Is The Limit!

Here are my Artsy Fartsy Pictures of them...

AHHH the journey these 81year old drawers have had, only to be Recreated and loved for the next 81 years!

I've got one creation left. Stay tuned!

Super Love

1930's Scandia AB House Creations Part 2

I also scooped up these windows from the 1930's ~about to be demolished~ home in Scandia Alberta Canada.
 And just when you think I might have run out of Vintage Window ideas....nope.....Here is another one!

I painted the window Heirloom White, I also sprayed some twigs, and yes, random out of the yard twigs the same Heirloom White! I then hot glued them into the Vintage Window Frame. I printed some Vintage Images from my Favorite Graphics Fairy Website and hung them on the branches from Black Ribbon.
What a great way to decorate seasonally!

Here it is on my fireplace Mantle. This Creation is SO Eye Catching and Magical, the pictures do not do it justice at all.

 Here it is hanging on the wall in a grouping! You can place it anywhere and it will get the conversations going!

The first Creation found a home so quickly that, I HAD to Create another one!
I painted this one Aqua Blue, and painted the Branch Glossy White, the contrast is so Enchanting! I hung small glass crystals from random branch pieces. Again this could be decorated seasonally.

Tune in again on Monday for  Part 3 of the Scandia House Creations!
Super Gratitude for Tuning In!

1930's Scandia AB House Creations Part 1

Hello Ava Blakers, I'm all settled into the new house and Summer is in full swing. Finally I'm getting out this series of posts revealing the Creations I've made from the 1930's house that I got to go through before it gets demolished out in Scandia Alberta Canada. See the all the details in the earlier post.
A great big gratitude hug to my cousin and his girlfriend for letting me go through the house!

I instantly saw the potential in these cupboard doors when I grabbed them from the 1930's House in Scandia Alberta, Canada...or, I mean pointed while jumping up and down at my husband to get the screwdriver and pull them off of the bathroom cabinet ASAP!

Here are my Creations...

This is the left side door. I printed, on tissue paper, a Vintage Music Sheet from my trusted Graphics Fairy, and glued it on the door with Mod Podge, then I  printed off the Vintage Bird with Lilacs and layered it over top of the music sheet, and I hand painted the postage stamp on it. I gave it some of my Shabby Style and WOW what a Wondrous Creation!

And the right side door...
I used the same technique as above, but with a different Vintage Bird and Vintage French Label on this one. Brilliant!

Here is my Artsy Fartsy Picture of the 1930's Bathroom Cabinet Doors, Recreated

A little closer

I found a dingy, beat up, 81 year old pair of bathroom cabinet doors, what I saw was a  Unique, Full of Character, Gorgeous, piece of Art!

Tune in on Thursday as I reveal Creation part 2 from the Scandia House!

Much Gratitude for tuning in,
