 The clasp from the necklace hangs off the handle of this vintage loving cup that would be perfect in a babys room to hold flowers or baby essentials.
Wee little one........a miniature teapot with crystals and beads hanging off the spout.  An earring from the set decorates the handle.
Hoppy, hoppy days.........this is a little creamer that can be hung or used to store items.  Beads from the necklace hang off the spout.
This way for bunny hugs.....another little hanging for babys room decorated with the necklace beads and another vintage earring.
One of my vintage baby shoes decorated with the crystal beads.
Another baby shoe.
More of the beads used to decorate this little hanging for babys room.

I found a beautiful baby blue vintage necklace and earring set on a trip to the thrift store and was inspired to create a line of junkstyle baby room decor items with them.  Now I'm on the look out for a vintage pink necklace!!

Can you tell me what kind of clear coat you use? Posted: 1:44 am on August 18th
patinamarie writes: Thanks for sharing about the clear top coat. I have the rub ons and found a really cute silverplate tea set 2nd hand. Can't wait to create something fun.

Posted my first post using rub ons too - an old mail caddy. Can't wait to see more and create more!!!

In answer to some of the questions you had: As I frequent my local thrift stores I, too, frequent Michaels and the scrapbooking stores in my area looking for interesting rub-ons. You can also make your own rub-ons using a special paper usually found at scrapbooking stores. Vinyls are fun and easy to apply to almost any surface as well. You can make your own vinyl rub-ons (the possibilities are endless) using machines such as the "wishblade". I do usually clear-cut over top of the rub-ons, but not the vinyls.
Hope this helps....happy junking (and crafting)!

Thanks and nice work!

saclark writes: Janis - These are fantastic!! But where in the world do you find all of the great rub ons? I can't seem to find any that have the charm to them that yours do.

These would be just perfect in a babys room. Love all of your ideas.

RustyDiva writes: You inspired me to shop for "rub on" words with your Just Plant It Post. I even bought a couple of silver pots at my friendly salvage place. You have inspired me to shop once more! You could be bad for me - but I've always been intrigued with my dark side so shop again I will.........thank you. Beautiful!!! Posted: 2:57 pm on June 17th

shabbychick writes: Janis - these are all tooooo sweet! Love your elegant baby style.

The lettering really adds to each piece (love the "bunny hugs") - and of course the little bit of "bling" is your signature!

The old baby shoes are cute - might have to get my daughter's out and do something fun with them!

Beautiful, my friend!!
