That Old Blue House

Considering my love for quilting and my appreciation for vintage it's no wonder I love That Old Blue House's shop! 

Lisa from That Old Blue House 2 creates stunning pieces of jewelry by using solder and glass to preserve once loved pieces of textiles. Her shop has just celebrated it's 2nd year. Her pieces are well received and her customers very happy. 

" all three pieces are really beautiful and remind me of my great grandmother. she did quilting, tatting etc. and these lovely charms seem like things i would have found in her jewelry box. thank you so much!" ~ a happy customer

Lisa's shop has long been a favorite of mine as I really admire the way she uses pieces of old quilts, lace, and paper to create beautiful new jewelry.  A rescuer of forgotten textiles and papers, her pieces really speak to me.

Lisa started creating with stained glass. She made suncatchers which she sold at a friend's flower shop. Her work, inspired by her love of antiques has evolved over the years and now includes jewelry made from well loved materials. 

Her Etsy shop is filled with these beautiful creations! 
Recently she has begun to create using buttons and marbles in her art. She is always on the hunt for new treasures and new objects to incorporate into her art.

Be sure to stop by her shop to see the rest of her beautiful pieces!
