Picnik: Taking on Vintage Linens & Dishes

To everyone who has already placed a bid (or two — or seven!) at my Vintage Linen & Dish Auction …a BIG thank you!


For this week’s Metamorphosis Monday, I thought I’d give you a quick look at the evolution of my Auction blog button.


 When I was looking for an Auction button picture, I wanted one that showed vintage linens and dishes — and little else. This is the one I chose.


It was one I took for a tablescape I did last Fall, in honor of my Mother’s birthday.
You can see the entire tablescape post HERE.


I then used Picnik photo editing software to “posterize” the original photograph and add text. Playing with fonts is such a fun way to waste spend time!


So what do you think?
Would you have even recognized these as the same plates?

  4. I thought I had missed it completely, but I see that I can still try to bid. I have been trying to decide what draws me the most.

    And I do like your button. I am determined to make one. I’m just as determined to procrastinate it.

  5. I love those blue Noritake china… it look absolutely gorgeous in your tablescape with all your crystal and vintage linens…. what a lovely way to celebrate your mom’s birthday! I like how you stacked the bowls and plates topped with a cloche..such an inspiring idea! Thanks for sharing and for stopping by. Have a nice day!~Poppy
