A Thank You... for a Thank You... for a Thank You...

A while back I received a surprise in the mail. It was a thank you for a thank you that I sent her :)  Was not my hope or intent when I sent off my little package....but I gladly accepted this package from Kimmie at Art in Red Wagons!

See that flag banner hanging there in all it's glory?  It's vintage hymnal music that has been dipped in beeswax and sewn on to twine.  Kim has one for sale in her Etsy shop.

If you wish, you may ignore the green pom pom garland...but as it turned out (quite accidentally) I think it compliments my wonderful banner above it.  (More on the pom poms later)

My intent is to move this to my sewing room, but for now I love it hanging in the natural light in the dining room.

It's romantic and rustic all at the same time, and it's truly beautiful.  I've read about bees wax in a few publications, but haven't tried using it myself.  Now, I know why people love it.  It's adds such depth to the pages.

There was also this little magnet that she created with a vintage bottle top and hand embossed metal.

These can also be found here.  Kim calls them "Fridge Jewelry"

I'm calling mine "tin can art".

Cool, isn't it?!

So, thank you Kim so very much for the thank you for the thank you!!

I'm linking up with Debra for Vintage Inspiration Friday!

  3. Oh just love your banner and your charming little poof balls !!! How sweet!! Popping over from Vintage Inspiration Friday~ I host a decorating party at my blog on the weekends if you would like to join in sometime! :)

  4. Loving beeswax myself, I can totally imagine {and see in your pics} how natural sunlight would be lovely coming through something coated in beeswax! I think the green garland and banner are really fun together, Jill! The little Fridge magnet is neat too!

  5. Such a lovely gift Jill. It looks lovely hanging there at the door. I also adored your amazing herb wreath. What a great idea. I imagine it smells heavenly too.

  6. And another thank you! Thank you for the links back .... And the brilliant idea of putting the magnet on a tin can .... That will be a good way to stage the magnets for my listing :)

    I'm glad these oddments have found a happy home :)
