Welcome to my new blog! Mitzi Made It is a craft blog where I'll be presenting projects during each of the four seasons of the year using vintage materials. Most of the time newer materials can be substituted, but we're aiming for up-cycling here if at all possible, because I'm an antique dealer and that's what I'm all about!
If you are looking for my newest post, scroll down past this Welcome post and Materials List.
At the beginning of each season I'll post a materials list including pictures of what to look for at the top of this blog. Right now we've started our Summer Projects, so go forth and look for the Summer Materials listed below!
Summer Materials List:
A lampshade that you can use for its "skeleton":
Plastic bangle bracelets:
Clear glass plates, without any pattern:
Paper ephemera, including sheet music, handwriting, and something unusual, like these newspaper tickets:
Burlap potato or grain sacks:
Old compacts, pill boxes, or cigarette cases:
A vintage jewelry box:
A vintage chandelier:
Shades to go with your chandelier. I like a variety of different shapes and colors:
Assorted bottles and jars, including a few canning jars (not pictured):
Bits of lace and crochet:
Have fun on your treasure hunt!
