Today I am going to showcase some beautiful items made by my close friend Annette who lives in Madeley, Cheshire.
Annette, like me has a passion for all things vintage. She is an avid collector of fabrics and haberdashery and uses these to create lovely 'upholstered' photograph albums and keepsake boxes. Annette has an amazing eye for colour and flair for putting different textues and colours together.
The albums Annette decorates are lovely in themselves - many by Past Times - with beautiful vintage style illustrations of birds, flowers or angels.
This winter album has stunning frosted artificial fruits and flowers with Ivy leaves.
The finished album is a work of art that would grace any surface. What is more you can fill it chock full of photos.
This is one of my favourite albums by Annette. It is like the taste of the English countryside which a hessian background decorating with muted country flowers and stunning ivory lace.
Annette has selected top quality silk flowers including a rose kissed with pink, light blue delphiniums and entwined with ivy.
All Annette's albums come gift wrapped in an ivory organza bag with bow and a diamante heart buckle.
These are other items are available through Annette's Folksy shop - Nostalgic Keepsakes
