I just finished this collage.  I loved the vintage photo of this lady.  When I looked at her I wondered what she was thinking.  She seems to have a far away dreamy look in her eyes.    I sewed the fabric transfer onto an old album page, then added lots of laces.  I layered translucent fabrics over some old brightly colored fabric to give it that filmy look.  Added some old millinery flowers and vintage costume jewelry. 

Saturday night was my Grandaughter's dance recital.  I want to share a couple of photos of her.
She hated this yellow dress it was scratchy and itchy.


I have been working on a match box swap for Bloggerett Sorority.  I am putting it in the mail to my partner tomorrow.  I will post a picture of it after she has received it.  We altered the box then stuffed it full of goodies.

I was so excited today I won two give aways.  The first one was from  Beautiful tag and some lovely lace.  The other one is from   A variety of goodies.  I will post photos when I receive them.  If you have not been to their blogs please visit  them.  They are both talented ladies.

My Sis is coming down to spend the 4th of July weekend with me.  We are going to spend the time in the studio.  Going to try making needle books.  The lake has a nice fireworks display so we will see that as well.   Hope you all have a safe and happy holiday.

Hugs, Jackie

We have a great flea market here every third weekend of the month.  My Sis and I went today and found pretty good bargins.  Lots of lace and old fabric for $1.00 each, vintage photos for .75 each and some old tart tins for  .25 each.  I also got some old spoons and forks and a pretty rhinestone key pin.

I made these pins from old doilies, and vintage photos.  I think these would look nice pinned on a jacket or a bag.    I have decided to try an Etsy shop and I am going to put these in it.  I am almost have it set up.  I am not sure about the shipping costs so have to decide on that first.

Have a great Sunday.

Hugs, Jackie

Can't believe how hot it has been.  I water my flowers on the deck in the early morning before the hot sun hits them, then stay in until evening.  I have been very busy in my studio, getting lots done and trying some new things.  Been thinking of starting an Etsy shop. 

  I am sharing a couple of the pages in the book I am making.  I just love fabric, it's so much fun to work with and vintage photos just seem to fit perfectly.

The pages have not been embellished yet.  I am working on the face pages, they will have some paper on them and pockets to stuff things in.  Have a great Friday.
