Vintage Treasures by Jane Cassini

 

3 Things I Like About This Book:

  • Lots of creative ideas for using vintage finds like old jewelry, lace and collectibles. Definitely will make you look at vintage costume jewelry in a different light.
  • Ideas feel a little “shabby chic” but with a touch of glamour. The general color scheme of all the crafts and ideas in this book is neutral: white, cream, tan/soft brown, wood tones, etc… often mixed with dried flowers and plants like lavender.
  • This book is filled with ideas/crafts/inspiration that I think would work great for anyone planning a bridal shower, rehearsal dinner or a wedding with an elegant, feminine, vintage look and feel. Also, great for anyone who enjoys decorating their home in that style.

    You sure can’t beat the Amazon price if a used book will do! I have a lot of my Mother in Law’s hankies, and they are beautiful, Maybe this book will give me some ideas for displaying. Thanks!

    • Yeah, I buy almost all used on Amazon…just look for the Very Good or Excellent books. You’re so right, Mary…you can’t beat the price!

  2. Susan, this looks interesting though I’m not in need of creating things at the moment. In the process of going through things to purge, organize, pack, etc. I found a bag of wonderful old Czech buttons that I purchased several years ago. I bought them with the intent of making them into napkin rings or using them on pillows. Perhaps I should look at this book for inspiration. 😉

    You have a St. Patrick’s day table with the Irish man in the centerpiece. It also shows stemware that has a green stem. Can you identify the stemware for me? It looks, from what I can tell, like the Mikasa Sea Mist pink stems, but I can’t find that Mikasa ever did them in green. Help? Thanks.

I'd love to hear from you! Please leave a comment!
