1940s Playtex Ad...look at the amazing prices!
Is there an Angel in the house?

I've been determined to make use of a damaged 1940's Redbook Magazine and had a great time collaging an old wooden tissue box cover with smaller Ads from the magazine.  Once I added the Ads, I included a few scrapebook letters and sprayed on polyurethane..and a Shabby Chic Decor Items was born!

Pattern or design used: My own design - Urban Iron Art and Newtiques
