Altered Serving Platter

I was on vacation last week visiting my family in Connecticut and upstate New York, and while in NY we hit up a few antique shops. I didn't get a lot, only picked up two things, because I didn't want to ship anything was going in my luggage or carry-on. I picked up a vintage milk bottle that I plan to use for small flowers or as a bud vase (after all this time, I don't actually have anything small for single flowers or was perfect). I also picked up an old silver serving platter that I altered with some pretty patterned paper, ribbon, letter stickers, tags, and a photo of my sweet hubby and I at a concert a few weeks ago (I will share that adventure soon...still trying to get used to being back from vacation...and get back into my crafty groove). I used lots of Authentique on this (from the Journey collection) and added some Papertrey Ink ribbon because it matched perfectly!!

I had originally planned to use the Uncommon collection, but I couldn't find a pattern that I loved for the base of this project. So I pulled some Journey and the paper with the flourish was just perfect!! Then I just started layering. I pulled some doilys from my stash, but the rest is Authentique.

Thanks for stopping by!!
