Choo Choo! ScrapMatters iNSD 2011 Blog Train

Welcome to the ScrapMatters' 2011 iNSD Blog Train! You may have arrived here from Haynay's blog. If you get lost along the way or if the train gets derailed, please visit the ScrapMatters' blog for the full list of stops.

Our theme for this iNSD is "vintage, feminine, romantic, trendy." Uhhh...I struggled with what to share!! But I did come up with something. Each year we go on a flea market, craft show weekend in October. We travel along the Spoon River Drive here in IL and find all sorts of treasures.

One of my very favorite purchases from these trips (ok, my parents bought it...I was in high school!) is my antique brass bed. They found it at The Barn, the BandB that they stayed at. My mom was so excited to bring it home for me. It was a little tarnished, but we both knew that it would be spectacular with a little TLC!

So I set to work restoring my bed. I spent several evenings in the garage. Sometimes with help, sometimes alone. But I got that brass to shine like the top of the Chrysler building! There are so many things I loved about my bed. I loved the brass, of course. I loved the antique springs and the way it would bounce! I loved all the work that I put into it. I've always thought that I would love to pass it on to my daughter if I ever have one. If not, I guess I'll just have to wait and see if I have a granddaughter! For now it will remain in our extra bedroom for guests.


This LO was created using the new ScrapMatters' Collab, Timeless. It's free with purchase for iNSD, so be sure to hop on over and check out all the new goodies at incredible sale prices!


And now onto my freebie! Look familiar, hehe!

I was going to comment on your background papers and that floral cluster having no idea that it would be our gift on this blog train. Love the horizontal stripes juxtaposition with the vertical papers on the right. That beautiful floral takes it all over the top. This paper stack will definitely grace my layouts. Just so unique in its design. Love it! Blessings!
