**The French Cupboard's Altered Art Party**

 Hey all, I just came across The French Cupboard's Altered Art Party and since I've been creating for my Etsy shop, I thought I'd join in the fun!

I hope you'll enjoy!

This is my vintage jar of treasures called "La Danse Francaise".
It's filled with vintage sheet music, with a fabulous vintage image of a french dancer and topped off with a vintage hand dyed millinery rose pin.

This garland is made with vintage ephemera rosettes and strung on vintage silvery gray seam binding.

Next is one of my favorite necklace designs called 
"Key to my vintage heart".

I designed this with vintage pearls and a fabulous old scrolled skeleton key.

I hope you all enjoyed my version of altered art and please check out the other creative ladies a the French Cupboard!
Happy Friday!
