Hi everyone! I hope you had a marvelous week. I am happy to be inside today during this DEEP freeze - currently, the thermometer sits at 1 degree Fahrenheit! Maybe I should put on my ORLON sweater! :D
Okay, a little back story - some of you may remember this post I did back in September, where I talked about all of these amazing labels I received from my friend Dawn in Maryland. Well, Dawn strikes again! I just received two more beautiful labels from sweaters that belonged to her sweet and eccentric aunt Marge. Here's what Dawn has to say about them:
"I stumbled upon a couple more labels. The Fairfield one cracks me up. What the hell is ORLON? Hope you can use them."
HA! See? How could I not use that great quote for the blog post title? :D For those of you wondering what exactly Orlon is, here is the Wikipedia entry. It was one of the "miracle" fibers of the mid-century, and was synonymous with "acrylic" in the early days.
I love both of these labels! Dalton must've been a popular clothing line back in the day, because I already used one in this fabric collage I made for my sister and her family this Christmas:
Dawn's labels have inspired so many collage ideas - my head is swimming with them! Add to that the fact that I got a new sewing machine a few weeks ago, and SHAZAM! I can't wait to get started working on some new fabric collages! :D
I will leave you with the card design that Dawn created - isn't it beautiful? I'm thinking of framing the card, I love it so much! :D
