The above plaque I found at a thrift store in my town. It's 11x19" and made of ceramic. I got it for 50 cents!! I couldn't believe it. I just love the image! These are some doilies and lace that I picked up at a local antique shop. Antique shopping is one of my favorite things to do and I often find it hard to walk out empty handed. Often when I'm feeling the need for inspiration, I wander into my local antique shops to find my muse. Works every time!
This is the result of the inspirations from my purchases. "The Little Brown Balloon" is a 4" wooden plaque with a hand stamped doily. Hand stamped and hand drawn decorations have been applied around the outside edge.
