Hello dear friends! We are busy getting ready to go up to Birdsong, so since yesterday I have been taking some photos of some of our garden areas as I have a feeling that a lot of the stuff will bloom out while we are gone. Please note, I have not edited any of these photos, so what you see is what you get!!
Recently I told you about an Etsy shop that sells some gorgeous images, and you can see that post here. I finally used one of the images that I had purchased in a piece of artwork and was hoping that you would like to see some photos of it.
The beautiful image of the children playing on
the beach was my inspiration...
The photo had been tinted with just the smallest
hint of pale blue,
so I used some blue silk dupioni to frame
part of it...
...along with some lovely vintage lace and
a shell fossil purchased in Florida...
...some buttons and rick rack
on the old doily at the bottom,
since the rick rack reminded me of waves...
...and of course, a beautiful quote,
accented with a vintage lace applique
to which an old rhinestone button has been added...
Go ahead and pin anything that you like! I am also flattered to think that you might like something well enough to use it for something other than Pinterest. If you do, I would appreciate a comment. Most of the vintage items that I offer as "freebies" are very old and I am sure beyond any copyright restrictions. If I use anything that is not old, and it is not mine, I credit it accordingly, and you should do the same. Thank you.
