Decoupaged boxes...and birdhouses from Sewing Geek

Decoupaging the tissue on the mannequin is a lovely idea!

I loved the comment you left....the more I think of it....that was a Lucy moment with my camper!!! FUNNY!! Blessings~~~Roxie p.s wish I lived closer...would take some of your classes said...

Ha! We're kinda twinzies! Right before we moved from the farm I had to donate a HUGE box of vintage patterns like yours because I wouldn't have room for them in our new place. Seeing all of your clever ideas makes me misty-eyed! Sure wish I'd held onto mine.
