Friday Flea Market ~ My First!

I am so excited to be part of Friday Flea Market, joining dozens of talented ladies who enjoy creating beautiful things!

I love making little pillows using vintage postcards that date from the early 1900's. I think the artwork and the sentiments are charming! The Valentine's Day postcards are no exception, and they were the inspiration for this group of pillows. The one pictured above features a postcard that is postmarked 1900. It is framed with antique laces and trims, along with vintage shell buttons. This pillow measures 10" by 11" wide, not including the 2" ruffle.

To purchase any of these pillows, please click here to visit my online shop ~ Rose Meadow Cottage Designs. You'll find more details and additional photos there!

The postcard gracing this pillow says "Roses ~ Emblem of Fond Love." I used sweet shabby chic rose print fabrics, antique trim, and made a pretty little ribbon rose. It is 10" by 9" wide, not including the 2" ruffle.

This romantic pillow is soft and pink, with ruffles and a bow, and heart shaped shell buttons. It measures 9 and 1/2" by 11" wide, not including the 2" ruffle.

And here's one with a cute little girl and her ruffled parasol. This pillow measures 9 and 1/2" by 9" wide, not including the 2" ruffle.
