Lace heart with fabric flower

Another thing from my swap: a lace heart.

The fabric heart itself I purchased some time ago,
and I intended to add more lace and embellishments to it for a while now.

So when Odetta asked me to do a swap, I thought it to be a perfect opportunity to do just so.

In my stash I have some gorgeous laces and doilies,
which I had received from my sweet blog friends over time.
Some of it I used on this heart, combined with a newly bought lace trim
and an old lace applique I purchased online.

Also I have some old blouses and buttons I bought in the thrift store,
one of which I made this fabric flower.

The word Paris I stamped on a piece of an old bed sheet.

Hugs to you!
