Altered Burlap Canvas with Rusty Hinges

A unique way to showcase some old rusty hinges was to use them in making this altered burlap art piece.

Antique hinges form the bases of these two altered art canvases. The vintage images shown can be swapped out with your own personal photos if you like or you can enjoy them as they are.  The hinges were sourced from the amazing hardware store located on the waterfront in Astoria, Oregon.

Lit-up Christmas Vignette in Vintage Glass Jar

I have been busy creating these lovely one of a kind glass jar Christmas scenes!  I used an assortment of vintage glass jars and transformed them into unique Christmas decor complete with strings of fairy lights. The vintage figurines used bring back a sense of Christmas past and look adorable on a mantle during the holidays.
