Free Grape Themed Images

Today I am posting these great Grape Themed images. I love the arbor with the grapes hanging down and the Gentleman harvesting. This would be wonderful for a wine label.
Next is this cluster of grapes, perfect for a jelly or jam label. Or print and hand color.

I could not resist this last one, looks like an old woodcut and would be perfect for any harvest themed art project.

Vintage Paris Wreath

Having fun with all the leftover vintage lace and findings that I gathered together for a wedding this fall. I found these great B&W print flowers and they inspired a "travel" wreath of vintage images I found @ The Graphics Fairy.
Printed the images on some vanilla colored card stock. The Eiffel Tower and French script reminded me of my travels to Paris.

These look like French love letters to me. The images are pinned on so you could change them for your own postcards and travel photos.

Shabby Chic Memo Boards

I did some new versions of the popular Shabby Chic Memo/Magnet Boards. I was inspired by Old Victorian Frames and all the ornate craving. I ReCreated that carving using Vintage lace and jewelry.
Close up of the corner trim using vintage lace and pearls.

Of course I used Burlap to cover the metal. Takes away some of the formality.

Shabby Chic Wreaths UPDATE

I am adding another Wreath version since this new style is so popular. Once again used lots of leftover bits and pieces of Vintage lace and jewelry. This time I ReUsed some old millinery roses that I over dyed with coffee to give a distressed Glam feel.

Shabby Chic Wreath made from Natural Linen and Vintage Lace & Jewelry.

This is a Great option for Autumn Decorating.
