~White Wednesday # 125~

There is something about old paper that calls to me, especially if it has french handwriting on it.  I've come across some lately and would like to share some things I've done with some of it.

I love it just stacked on a table or desk, but you can also add it to the bottom of a glass paperweight or a clipboard, wrap some around candles and I've even made some Christmas ornaments out of some.  The possibilities are endless.  Enjoy! xoxo K.

I'm always drawn to those ladies' blogs who can make amazing things  and Lori over at Katie's Rose Cottage is no exception.  Not only does she have an eye for spotting fabulous "junk", but this lady can sew some pretty creative things.  She shares tutorials with you and has a shop you can browse through on her sidebar, so go over and see for yourself:-)

  9. I love, love, love the old handwriting. There were three ledgers at CR the other day I was looking at from the early 1920's. It always amazes me when paper items are around that long! Hope you are doing well!

    Take care, Sue

  10. Hi Kathleen, I love the ways you've used the French sheet music. The paperweight would make a great gift, I would keep the paper wrapped candles and of course the Christmas cone would take center stage on my tree. Great inspiration. Now if I can only find the paper! Thanks for introducing Lori, I'll pop in and say hello.
    Thanks for hosting.
