Loving this leaf I used as background to some of our handmade goodies today. It was green, it was shiny and it was beautiful.
It made our card wallets look tiny.πŸƒ

This pair of cushions have been made with love from a pure linen, unused souvenir tea towel of Australian Fish.
Perfect tonesπŸ‘ŒπŸΌ
Can be sold separately but are a much better deal as a pair. Check them out in our Etsy store @retromementos 🦊

I call this photo β€œFish from behind the tea towel”... I’ll work on shortening the title but in the meantime I wanted to share this part of my process with you... I wash and iron all the vintage fabric I use. It is not my favourite step in creating however it does give me time to appreciate the quality and hard wearing properties of a beautiful vintage linen. Amazing quality compared to many fabrics we see these days. Fabric that can last centuries and does. Imagine how long our clothes would last if all fabric was made with this quality. πŸ€·πŸ»β€β™€οΈ
