My friend Vicki of Rusty Rooster Vintage has a brand-new art studio. I wanted to make her a special decorator tag. (I know you must be swooning by now while looking at her space!)
Then, my husband (who rocks!) rusted this washer for me to put on her tag....You see, I had to have something “rusty” to be in-keeping with her theme. Finally, coffee-stained cheese cloth completed the tag for an added touch of “vintage.” Enjoy your studio, Vicki! I know it will be tons of fun!
I am linking this to the Graphics Fairy because the rooster came from there!
And I hope you'll all visit Vicki--she has an amazing blog and is a super neat person!!!

In December, a friend of mine up north went in search of some vintage finds for me to use in my work I was making for the art galleries. But, now that those art pieces were completed, I was able to use some to make decorator tags for friends of mine and I wanted to share them with you. When I saw this picture of Roselle and her husband on her blog, I knew I wanted to make her something memorable.
So, I made this tag with the word "cherish." This engraved vintage cross was included in those special finds I was telling you about and it had to have a wonderful place to be. So, it is landing in Roselle’s special home. And yes, I know this tag isn’t pink, but when I saw her taupe walls in her living room, I wanted it to match. If you ever need to go in search of “pure pink heaven,” just go to Roselle’s blog at Seaside Rose Creations!

I love all things romantic and to me, nothing seems to say “romance” like the color combination of light blue and taupe...I think it’s dreamy. I have wanted to make a tag for Louise’s challenge, Tag Tuesday and just got around to it this weekend. Well, since I didn’t get it posted in time for Tuesday, I tried to make up for it by making 4 tags!
The “Cherish” and “Beautiful” adornments are made from fabric ribbon.
I also tied glittery tulle fabric at the top of each tag and crinkled seam binding.
