Something Quite Special

vintage deliciousness

for the love of all things vintage...what a fabulous day i had yesterday! lots of great junking, delicious food, and wonderful company...and, i even had hours of creative time...yay!

009 - Copy (4)
just a sampling of what treasures i found...i adore my new office chair!

014 - Copy (4)
my favorite find of the day has to be this incredible ledger...here's a peak at what's inside:

017 - Copy (3)
a household accounts boook from 1963 to 1966 for Merle & Virgil Knotts...and Mrs Knotts here kept every receipt...every stub...and i love it all!

019 - Copy (2)
it has been fun to look though the invoices and cancelled checks...i see a great mini book inspired by this ledger in the future!

and, here is the tag that i made last night...

051

i loved the way the Grungeboard watch faces came out...

002
I started by stamping them in Archival Ink - Jet Black, then using Weathered Wood Distress Stain to color them...

025
after trimming them, i added some splotches of paint with my Snow Cap Paint Dabber...

026
a final touch of Vintage Photo Distress Stain on the edges wiped with my finger tips to remove it from the paint and the final product is so cool...

027

this is a perfect paint technique to use for the Inspiration Emprorium's Monthly Challenge...run on over to the blog, play along, and you could win $50 in Emporium Dollars!

thanks for stopping by my little world today!

I really like that you went the extra mile to add the touch of distress to the edges of the final product. Well done!

Whoa. O.o I never knew vintage office chairs can be availed of now. That looks good for any type of office, and it would also match my office space. All of the things you purchased look creative. I like 'em!
