"Shabby Hearts"

I have been busy stitching up a storm. With my recent feature in Romantic Homes Magazine - August 2011 issue - "At Home with Trisha Evans",  I am humbled at the many requests I have received for my Shabby Star pillows. Because of the detail work involved in creating these sweet art pillows, it is taking a bit longer than I would like to get more of them posted. I have been tweaking the designs and have started making "shabby heart" shapes.

Please let me know what you think. I have added the items pictured below in my Etsy shop today. (my website is undergoing some much needed updating.) I have quite a few pillows in various stages of completion and will post those as soon as I can complete them. Please keep visiting my site/etsy shop to view new pillows posted each week.

 This "Shabby Heart" Pillow (above) features vintage laces and buttons, seed beads and various embroidery stitches. It measures 10 inches and I suspect will not last long. This is really one of the prettiest pillows I have ever done.

Smaller "Shabby Hearts" with exquisite detail featuring Swarovski pearls and crystals. Intricate embroidery stitches - ruching - vintage buttons.

I have been fascinated with the fabric flowers out there and decided to try making them. I am so pleased with the result and think that the shabby flower only adds to the charm of this vintage-inspired art pillow.

I have quite a few new items that will be added to the website including gorgeous pearl jewelry designed exclusively for A Vintage White. I will be doing a post and more information featuring the designer soon!

P.S. When you have a few minutes, visit my friends at Faded Charm for some wonderful "White Wednesday" inspiration.

Trisha, everything you show is just gorgeous. I can see where it would take a lot of time. There is so much detail to each pillow, but that is what makes them wonderful.
