Just a little L-O-V-E


Not long ago after perusing some old Victoria Magazines, I found a wonderful image again in the February 1999 edition. Victoria never gets old or outdated, they are always lovely and classic. I knew once I saw it that I wanted to put my own "take" on it, so I used what I had on hand; tags and romantic elements to say "LOVE" in a very special Valentine-y way. 





Old stamps


vintage buttons


Millinery flowers


faux pearls


L-O-V-E


I had so much fun putting this together...

Here is the original image
by Sarah Lugg, 1998





Photo image found  at Art Slice.


I'm joining in for these great parties:


A new linky party, Simply Klassic Sundays





Hope you're off to a wonderful week,
xoxo,

  4. Love these tags! They're just beautiful. Victoria was such a special magazine. I was so sad when it folded. I don't think I saved my old issues when I moved :(

  7. Debra,
    These are stunning! I subscribe to Victoria...but my issues don't date back as far as yours, dear. I keep (too many) magazines for resources and inspiration! I call it...recycling! Thank you for this cleaver idea!
    Fondly,
    Pat
