Today's Mini-"Vintage"-Theatre Construction


This little theatre was such fun ... all blue and gold and lavished with lots of Dresden scrap, silk ribbon, reproduction fringe trim, dyed feathers, and vintage images.

Popped by to see how things went yesterday. Any trouble? You've amassed some very interesting stories here. I got a laugh out of the list of 'whites'. Who names all those shades? That would be fun, actually. Can never have too many pairs of scissors!
Best,
Catherine
