Melissa from Andromeda Vintage challenged me to show my collection of bow ties. I have a stash of them in my studio that have been collected primarily for crafting. I let some of my fancier ones go this year in a craft project, but still have some fun ones left.
Here is my favorite holiday bow tie. If I was a fellow, I would be sporting this all during December.
The crafting project that I used these bow ties for most recently? The little stands I made with old collars and vintage bow ties.
Thanks for the challenge Melissa. If you have an idea for a future collection challenge leave me a comment and finish the sentence "Show me your collection of ____."
P.S. The newspaper ads in the background are all from my stash of vintage newspaper from Lawrence, Kansas dated 1936. I bought a library archive of newspaper when in Kansas a few years ago. A great resource for old advertising and such.
