Remnants of the Past~ A Beautiful Mess...



Hello!
I wanted to share a few pictures that I took of Kymberley Fraser's booth at The Remnants of the Past Antique Show a couple of weeks ago.


Kymberley's designs the most beautiful unique home decor items using antique German Grain Sacks.





I love these baskets.....


Aprons and totes made from Antique German Grain Sacks......

Hello Maria

How interesting. I have seen cushions made from old French flour sacks but never German ones.
I see that she also has mirrors made from old window frames too.
Isn't recycling wonderful.

Hello Maria! I love the way you captured Kymberley's booth. Great job! My favorites are the totes and aprons. I couldn't stop looking at them when I had the privilege to stop in at her shop a few months back. Have a good day! Terry

Lucky you that you were able to get in early (I am assuming!) to take some photos. I gave up....it was absolute madness. I couldnt even think - haha. I did get to snag one of her grain sack journals. Love it. Thanks for sharing your lovely photos my dear!

I could say that your photography makes the most mundane look gorgeous, but in this case it just enhances the beauty of Kimberly's booth. It's a compliment to both. I spent some time chatting with her at the event and she is so welcoming and fun! Her husband was also cool with a good sense of humor. Her designs are amazing!

I wish so bad I could have gone to Remnants of the Past!! Looks excellent. I would need to save up lots of money first though. :)

About Vintage French Hen said...

I've been hearing more and more about her work, and now I can see why! WOW, what a talent. My daughter was down in Augora Hills a few weeks ago, but unfortunately the store had already closed. She literally had her nose pressed up against the glass! Great photos Maria!
