antique patchwork, old journals and wild rosehips in my hair

Ok, now for a proper post!

I was sorting through my vintage fabrics stash, and oh what fun! I have old lace and embroidery pieces, patchwork pillows and flower girl veils from the 20’s, satin ribbons and such. Amongst it all I found a piece of patchwork that is particulary inspiring, a tidbit of it posted below.
Last weekend when I went for a walk I stumbled upon a field of dainty wild rose hips. Some were quite withered but a plethora of the tiny hips were still cherry red! I cut a few sprigs for my hair and to take back to my home. Was fun!

This patchwork swatch is so perfectly faded and delicate.

Finds` How wonderful is this skirt? I was thrilled to get the enclosed butterfly and owl bank too! Wooden necklace pendant from awhile ago. I wish that the metal in old costume jewelry didn’t give off such a horrible stench and discolor my skin, although I still wear.

Captured.

This giant pear is a pendant and on the other side is a mirror! Background is vintage bed sheets.

Rosehips from this weekend.

This little brass dearie came with a friend as well, not pictured. And another wooden necklace.

Two years ago I wrote down my art inspirations in my journal. I am seriously thinking about keeping a journal book again! I was reinspired with these words~

Does anyone have a yummy recipe for wild rosehip tea?

I have to post pics of my inspiration table/ alter very soon!
