Heart of ToileFebruary 25th, 2010 in member junk
I made this for my mother out of recycle items. It started with a wooden heart found at the thrift store. I love toile and never pass up material or in this case wallpaper. I put different toile wallpaper on sections of the heart. The picture is of my mother and dad (deceased) as newly weds in the 1940's after he returned from World War II. Their picture is outlined with vintage tatting made by my grandmother. I added antique buttons from a collection I inherited from my other grandmother. Mom hasn't seen this yet but I plan to give it to her on an upcoming visit.
