I wanted a completed antique look, so I got onto my computer and cropped a couple of my Great-Grandmother's old post cards. Aren't they AWESOME!? Look, it says 1913 on the post office's stamp. I got the idea to blow up old post cards from Ifferslittlenest.blogspot.com on pinterest.
The balls are as simple as they look. I heated up the hot glue gun and cut the fabrics into strips. I just glued the end and wrapped the balls with fabric until they were covered.
My great-grandmother received a letter from Alta. I'm not sure who this lady is. But this is what it she writes:
Sept. 24, 1913
We have a lovely spring morning had autumn yesterday. I am going to sew to-day as fast as ever as I can; have 5 aprons to make won't I be well supplied when I get them finished. I think the folks will be home by the first of next week if not before. If I had you here I would tell you a secret but mustn't write it. As ever, Alta
Whoa! Right! I mean, what could the secret be? She "mustn't" write it? Sounds like I'd be interested in hearing that secret! The front of the post card is a sassy woman and a man fanning her with a fancy feather background. And it reads "The kind of Fanning I Like" Ha. I like to think of them having sassy secrets and telling each other.
