White Wednesday, Pretty Little Girls

Weekend before last, I had a little free time to indulge my need to be a teeny bit creative. I couldn't find my red bingo cards that I was hoping to use to make some vintage Valentine hang-ups. I believe that is known as "dis-organization". So I used some of my vintage photo albums instead, to show off a couple of my favorite images.

This young lady in her shepherdess dress is so precious. I don't know the occasion, but I find her to be totally captivating. A millinery flower and some lace that Jill sent me, and old white buttons add just a little bit of embellishment.

This sweet little child's Valentine couple
 became my banner photo for this week.

Angel vine is such a favorite of mine (and my kitties). This heart topiary that I found at Inspirational Home is setting in the Dining Room on the buffet. Charlotte climbed aboard to celebrate Valentine's Day.

And my little alabaster girl on the Living Room
 hearth is adorned with a red rose wreath.

With all this cold weather, my face and skin,
 kinda feel like she looks!

And these little cards are unlike any I've seen.
They have flaps that fold in,
 to make their own envelope.

The centers are silk that have been printed.
Anyone know anything about these?
They are so unique and detailed.

White Wednesday.

Hope you are planning on a sweet
Valentine's Day,

Feel the Love!

    I haven't done a single thing for Love Day although I did go to Graycie's Valentine program tonite and I AM in love with that child...does that count?

  12. Looks like you used some of the things I have been trying to put into containers so now I'll know where they are. No more excuses to get motivated. These turned out great!

  17. Hi Debra,
    Nice to meet you. Love your beautiful vignettes. I love white myself. Also the way you used the vintage photos is stunning. The simplicity of the decoration adds texture and at the same time does not take away from the photo. Nicely done.

  18. Lots of wonderful items. I wondered where you got your banner from. Glad to see that you've been creating. I've sort of at a stand still right now, so I just keep crocheting hearts. Have a blessed day! :) Tammy

  19. Your house is just ful of Valentine goodness Debra. Full to the brim of beauty for the day of love. The red just pops with the white. You gotta know I love that bust!!!

  20. Love it all, including the sweet couple used in your banner! Great card created with the vintage photo. Beautiful! Have a blessed day dear Debra!

  25. Oh Debra...I LOVE your alabaster girl! And I love how you've plopped her in an urn. I just "aged" up a little bust yesterday & will copy your bust in an urn look, if you don't mind.

  26. Debra, The alabaster girl in the urn is beautiful! I love what you did with the photo of the girl with the staff, so pretty. You always have such great photos. Theresa
