Vintage-Inspired Baskets

 I'm a bit late finishing these in time for listing these in my etsy shoppe as Easter baskets, but please contact me if you're interested, as I can create a listing for you in next couple days, and ship Priority Mail in time for Easter! Or if you're local, I can deliver them to you! They are on sale for $20 each each, plus shipping, if I send to you through the mail.

These baskets would also make lovely gift baskets for Mother's Day, showers for babies and brides, or a pretty place to store washcloths, art supplies, etc.

Here they are... Please email me at cherylensomdack@gmail if you are interested in purchasing. :)

This first one is called "Rose," fittingly, and was made by me using a vintage basket, and adorned with vintage lace and an incredible vintage millinery rose in the sweetest pink.

 On the handle is a flower made from vintage lace, a vintage earring, antique millinery flowers and velvet leaves. 

This next basket is named, "Polly," and is also a sweet and shabby sage green.
"Polly" features vintage millinery flowers, pale pink tuling, an antique earring, velvet leaves and sweet pink ribbon.

Next is "Rebecca," a pink vintage basket featuring vintage lace and millinery flowers, as well as an antique pearl necklace.

"Romance" is the next basket, also a sweet shabby pink. I used some incredible antique lace, a soft velvet antique millinery flower and vintage earring.

This basket, "Annetta," is a charming pink, and a bit bigger than the others. I used yards of incredible vintage satin floral ribbon.

Mabel and Abel

I'm taking some orders again! I hand-embroider these little baby layette sets using one of my favorite vintage embroidery patterns that Emily, my daughter, about 3 years of age at the time time, dubbed "Mabel and Abel," after our cats at the time. 

If you are interested in ordering one of these custom sized sets (0-24 months/you can specify colors of knits, cats, etc.), please visit one of my etsy shoppes HERE.

Vintage-Inspired Easter Baskets

I haven't blogged in ages, but I've been working on some new creations I'd love to share with you.

The photos above and below are of some Easter baskets I'm altering/selling, but others are still in process so I'll be sharing my progress and have them available to purchase in next few days.

I'm really enjoying finding vintage Easter baskets, painting them my favorite "vintage" hues, rediscovering and playing with my collection of antique lace and ribbon, vintage millinery flowers, antique jewelry, and much more.

These would make lovely heirloom Easter baskets for a litttle (or big!) girl. But they'd also be lovely in a bathroom with washcloths in it, or on a vanity table in a vintage-inspired boudoir for keeping lotions, perfumes, and other beauty products in.

Stay tuned for more! :)
