Tutorial

*MY STACK BOX MAKEOVER AND SOMETHING WITH A VINTAGE LOOK*

Whilst skipping around blogland the other evening reading my fav blogs I came across a great fun tutorial from PAM at OUR PIONEER HOMESTEAD...http://ourpioneerhomestead.blogspot.co.uk/search/label/tutorials..I have had the papermache boxes kicking around for a while and also a brown advertising bag which I just photocopied and then tore off a few selected labels.. I think they look fantasticaly prim also pictured are some grubby fabric covered eggs I have been doing for a simple Easter display..

Now for something with a vintage twist..My youngest son has been studying about WW2 at school this last half-term and the effects it had on the children who were evacuated to the country from the cities often seperated from their families and loved ones... To end their project all the children in school dressed up as evacuees today and I must say looked fantastic..
This is Finley my youngest son.
And these are my grandbabies. Christoper and Evie
I hope you will agree they look like they just stepped out of the 1940s..
Hope everyone is having a great week..*~*Blessings to all*~*

Wow Angi! The boxes turned out fab! Lovely colour and distressing!
I almost choked in surprise when I saw Finley - my son David was dressed almost identically for their class WW2 day a few months ago!

Wow, the kids look great!!! How fun to be able to recreate outfits from the 1940's. Good job. I love the fabric eggs. I have a few Linda Parker sent me. Good job on the boxes. I love that they are white. -Steph-

Hi Angi

I found your blog through a comment on Steph's blog (Front Porch Primitives). I would love to follow you!

I love primitives but cannot find that style in Belgium. I take some items home when visiting the USA and make some things myself.

If you now some good webshops in the UK, please tell me!

By the way: the kids look so cute!

I love primitives, but it's a decorating style that can't be found in Belgium. So if you know some good webshops in the UK, please tell me.

Everything you do just has an extra special touch of something, Angi....I LOVE your boxes and eggs.... But your son and grands take the prize this post - spot-on costuming!! Especially Finley - Oh my heck - he's so precious, I'd be tempted to dress him like that everyday!! When my son was younger, they had a day where they had to dress like pioneers - he was so stinking cute! And I had to wrestle him out of the overalls - he loved them! Thanks for sharing such adorable moments! Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin

Awesome Angi! Don't you just love Pam's tutorials? She has so many and always puts it out there so easy to understand. She's so sweet to offer us SO many! I love the way your boxes came out, prim perfect! The eggs are adorable also!

Such cute kids and yes, it's amazing how close to the 1940's they look! Wow, you all did a great job with their outfits!!
