Art with Vintage Linens is just a love that has grown from collecting for over 45 years. I must have always been a Mixed Media Artist. I've had to alter and make do with whatever I had..I like the old laces, old feedsacks, the old tattered and worn quilts, the old buttons and vintage sewing items and patterns just to name a few. I do have a great love for all vintage dolls. I too love the Old Vintage Photos of the late 1800's and early 1900's
I also love The History of People, Places and The Old Time Revivals.
.....THANKS FOR Visiting.....
I have titled what I have written below, a little mixed media of TIME!
Time is always getting away from me! I think that a real of sign of growing older! But even the young are saying the same thing lately! And I wonder if it's not that we have so much going on in this day and time we live in! To me time is speeding up. with all this modern times we are in. Like the internet with emails that are just instant, cellphones that text so fast and now mine is now with face time! My great-grandson and I can talk and see each other at the same time. But I said all of this to say I am happy and blessed to live in a time that GOD has allow for such as this! I am thankful to know I that I have lived to see some changes that still do surprise me! I was born before TV and believe me it was sure slower pace in those days! I remember sitting around the radio and enjoying programs that would make you imagine you were right there as the sounds of how they made it with all the scripts and the acting voices was very good too!
I was born a late change of life child to my parents. My dad was born in 1897 and my mother was born in 1898 and I still remember them telling me when there was not any cars and planes. Horses and trains were the only way of traveling. But you could walk!!! Ha ha, this way of life is about forgotten, unless you have too! It's too scary now too walk and believe me if you see someone walking you wonder are they up to good or bad. That's where the news brings up all these bad things happening! Makes you feel like you got to stay in a locked home or keep your car doors always locked! Again, I remember and thankful that when I was young you did not have lock anything up. What has happen? Is it because we going way to fast to notice that someone is not taught right or wrong! I know there has always been the bad that evil has always been around. Now with all this kind of bad stuff happening is because we hear it so fast? I do asked these questions. Why is this? No one knows their neighbors anymore. LOOK at the or READ the news if don't believe me on that one!
I am so thankful to JESUS, for being born into a church going family. My family attended church 3 times a week. Sunday morning, Sunday evening, and then we went back on Wednesday night too. We never miss church during Revivals either. And attended the other churches Revivals too. That's when Tent Revivals were very much a summertime way along with family picnics. This was when there was NO Air Conditioning either! This did not keep us away from church either! They had those fans that were in the song book area or laying on the benches. My mother always carried a fan in her purse. It was the fold up kind. OH my, I remember when they sold these at the local stores and most everyone carried fans! OK, maybe we just got spoiled to AC! Ha ha, I am sure, I am! I cannot believe we drove cars without AC. But all we had back then was to cool off was to roll down the windows. Those side vents on the front windows were a lifesaver for our hairdos. I am so thankful I can remember all this too. Sometimes, I long for those days again of slower pace. Again and again I wonder is all getting better or getting worst for our young folks. I guess we have to wait and see on that one! Thankful for knowing I have a GOD who is good all the time!
I am so thankful I have lived to see now my grandchildren having children. I now have 5 great-grandchildren and have three granddaughters expecting this next spring. What a blessing to witness this! I hope and pray that I will be given good health to enjoy what is to come and Lord willing, I could witness great-great-grandchildren. OH my, the stories to tell of days of old. Like my Dad and Mother told me of changes of time!
I have been trying to make a art Journal here is a few pictures of a few pages I have done.
I love to use the shipping Tags in Artwork. My daughter and I made these two tags and they turned out so pretty
This is a old jar I fill with old sewing spools Old lace and ribbons and anything I could find I do like to fill Vintage Jars up with lots of small Items I have that need to find a home and I always call canning with fun things into ART
I did not have the lid to this so I use a tiny plate with flowers added some vintage lace to make a bow around the top
I use a paper towel roll in the middle to get the Items to show up on the outside it works for me and it saves items for another jar! I love to fill jars it's so much fun!
I added one of my Tag Art to give a cute look the Old tag of Love makes the world go around I have Had for years it has a cute pin on it too. There is a Tiny Teddy Bear in the top on the other side some vintage flowers I have been collecting and some vintage buttons to add as fillers
This another Tag I made for my daughter to use She and I love to craft our Art together sometimes
