Tag Tuesday-vintage

For this weeks tag, I used mulberry paper for the tag covered in a piece of vintage dress making pattern, this I then over stamped with a Paper Artsy rubber stamp.  The rosette is made from a piece of scrap book paper  with old sewing adverts from my stash .
The photo is of my grandmother who was a tailoress, so I have used some of her bits that I have had for nearly 40 years. The ivory button  is monogrammed with the initial of her maiden name.  The black bead is made of Jet, the silver thimble had been  so well used by her that there were a few holes in the top allowing me to be able to sew it onto my tag.  The vintage darning wool, was given to me by a very old friend, remaining odds and ends came from my stash.

A true vintage tag, mine is just in the theme of. I met someone on Monday who knew we blogged and were doing Tag Tuesday. I have encouraged her to set up her own blog and to show the tags she has been making.

I love the tag - what do you do with them once you have created them ?

How lovely to be able to bring all these memory pieces together in this tag.
