Handmade Luxury

Luxury Garment Hangers

I LOVE vintage clothing!
I have a huge collection of antique and vintage dresses.  
Many are delicate, fragile and can no longer be laundered or even dry cleaned.
With such collections.....  also comes the task of protecting them from the elements.  Dust and sun damage are major culprits.  
I wanted to find a "pretty" way to display them and protect them at the same time.
So......  I made a bunch of covered garment hangers.  Several coordinating sets.  Now my prized dresses not only look beautiful but are beautifully protected.  My closets and armoire look so pretty and organized.
How luxurious!
I made several more and they are now available in my Etsy shop.

Have a lovely week!

Those are the loveliest hangers I have ever seen. I would not want to use them, but just have them on display to show the detail.

What beautiful hanger, I love the addition of the vintage lace.

The hangers are very beautiful. Your lovely vintage dresses will look even prettier on those hangers than on the plain plastic ones.

Dear Elizabeth, Now these are so amazing. This vintage beauty will put all other hangers to shame. I have never thought of using or doing anything like this. I think of you often when I see things in a shop that I know you would cherish and appreciate.
I was in a shop a few days ago in a mountain town here in Colorado that was filled with all the old hats that the women use to wear. They were amazing! I love your post and your creations so much.
You're a precious blogging friend!
Have a wonderful week-end!
I almost forgot to tell you I found the sweetest tiny cradle of only 10 inches long, and I am going to make the sheet and blanket and of course a pillow for it this weekend. Using all my rose and lace all that JAZZ, :)
Maybe this should of been an E-MAIL
Blessings, Roxy


These are truly lovely. Now how will I ever manage to look at my plain old hangers again?
