Vintage Pocketed Doily Wall Hanging

I love doilies, both old and new!

Chances are, if you're like me, you hate cutting into them even when there are visible signs of aging on vintage doilies, but when you can transform them into something pretty and practical, then it doesn't seem so difficult.

Though I didn't actually cut this rectangle doily, I did fold it over to make a pocket, backed it with a couple of different layers, the first a sparkly tulle, the second a piece of cotton that I cut to size.


 Adorning my wall hanging was easy with the beautiful vintage bits and pieces that came in my Zeus and Zoe Design Team package. Tiny snippets of trim, crocheted, tatted or fabric lace that are entirely too precious to discard!


 Beautiful buttons and a tiny strand of pearls were a natural choice to compliment the different appliques and trims that accentuate the pocket, while a climbing vine of light pink leaves on either side add a subtle note of interest this hand-sewn treasure.


A dowel hanger edged with an organza-and-pearl rosette trim was the perfect topper to the snippet of blue trim with triple rose appliques, and the hand-made ribbon roses with pearl centers add a pop of color at each of the top corners.

What a  perfect piece to showcase some vintage postcards!

I hope you enjoy....

Now is the time - fall

Happy Monday!
Fall is in full swing in our part of the world, that means you will see it at least in few of my upcoming projects
Here's my first fall-theme layout of this season.


From my stash I have picked a neutral light paper for my background (Dreamer from 7 Dots Studio) and I have complemented it with the items from my Zeus and Zoe kit.
You will see few scraps of papers, authentic old newspaper, washi tape and cotton lace. In my kit I also had this sweet flower vine (Prima) and a flower pack from Manor house - these I saved for another project, but the packaging came handy! The beautiful brown roses are cut out from this package :) Finally a golden button instead of a brad and some Prima chipboards to add dimension. Zeus and Zoe kits contain such a variation of items, you can do so much with it!

Thanks for stopping by today, wishing you a great week! Don't forget to have a look at Zeus and Zoe Etsy store.

Charllie is back in the buzz!!

TODAY , TOMORROW & SOMEDAY
Hey I'm cak and hope you guys miss me lol !! nah it's so busy at school and such but here I am sharing with you a wonderful work of mine :)
This one of my favorite covers of all surely the vintage I wanted . It seems so hard to achieved but it isn't , I used a lot of mica powders and sprays to get the effect . The background was covered up using Prima's Finnabair sunset and sunrise collection  and to match the whole picture well I used inks and a lot of Zeus and Zoe product . The flowers are from Prim which is also available from the store. I wanted the whole thing to be clarified as vintage that why I made it like that :). The title was used to remind me that there will be another day to achieved what I want to improve my sketches and another to do thing in life and also there will be next time :) (just try and practice to make you the best )

Get Lost Somewhere with Dana


Hi! Dana here today sharing a fall-themed layout. The gorgeous hues of orange and red foliage is one of my favorite things about the Autumn season. I've been following the restoration of the Chateau de Gudanes, a castle in the south of France, and this is just one of the stunning photos of this gorgeous historic monument.


I've used 7 Dots Studio patterned paper and stickers from my Zeus and Zoe Kit to build up the layers under the photo. I'd love to get lost exploring the grounds and rooms of this castle!


I've tucked several vintage postcards under the photo. I loved the gorgeous bouquet of flowers on this card and the script on the other. Both of these cards are embossed, which really adds some great dimension to my page.


I created a small embellishment cluster on the right-hand side of the page to help balance the design.

Thanks for stopping by today! Please check out the Zeus and Zoe social media sites for more inspiration. If you'd like to pick up a one-of-a-kind Zeus and Zoe Kit for yourself, stop by the Zeus and Zoe Etsy Shop or email Marivic Clifton for a personal order.
