Monday's Muse from Etsy

Another offering of Etsy-style goodness.

This is the first Treasury that I've ever attempted to put together.  An Etsy Treasury is just a member- curated gallery album loosely organized on a theme - color, style, season, similar medium, etc. 

Olde School Crossing Treasury

I think the bows on these shoes are simply darling!  This is a great way to spiff up a pair of ballet flats one day and then move the bows to a plain pair of pumps to rev them up a bit on another day.

Old School Grey, Brown & Red Stripe Ticking Ribbon Shoe Bow Clips. Heavy Twill Strapping. Uniform Preppy Student
$8.00 USD

Old typewriter keys can be so versatile.  These have gained a new life as push pins.  Upgrades the look of your bulletin board to something that is practical and cool.  Love it!

  • Altered books are just like blank canvases.  They can become whatever you can imagine.  This artist from the Dallas area had many, many pieces to choose from.  I loved her imagination and creativity.

    This book was altered from it's previous use as an elementary reader to an art journal.  The original interior pages removed and then art paper signatures set inside waiting your pen's pleasure.  FUN!

    The last piece for today's blog was something that made me smile.  Owls seems to be coming back into the decorating scene.  They certainly take me back to my junior high years.  Back then it was owls, mushrooms, snails, etc.  These mounted buttons are a tribute to that time. 

    Check back in to the blog next week for another Monday Muse from Etsy.
