Vintage Garland












Hello, dear friends. I got a new computer last weekend. My youngest son and grandchildren came for a visit last Saturday. I had been wanting a new computer for a very long time. When I told my son, he said, "Let's go take a look at some new computers." Well, that was all it took. I bought a new one with Windows 7, and Aaron hooked it all up for me. I even have a new copier/printer. Let me tell you, I am loving it! My old computer was ten years old and very slow. Not this new one. It is very fast!! I printed off some vintage girls and strung them on some pink ribbon and made a garland for my fireplace. I had so much fun! I will be addicted now. I will probably have garlands strung on every nook and cranny in Bunny Cottage. Thank you so much for stopping by and taking a look at my new creation. I hope you are having a wonderful week!! Sending my love to each of you!

Vicki I love your sweet garlands! A new computer is like a breath of fresh air. My dear hubby bought one for me in December, and my sweet son keeps it up for me (I sure don't know anything about computers ;-) Enjoy your high speed.

Hugs, Jocelyn

Oh Vicki, you are on a roll now. I love what you did. I need to learn how to do something like that too. I have no idea about graphics at all. Very nice, Char

Oh Vicki, how lucky that your son came to visit and escorted you to the computer store. And he even set you up. You will have a blast with so much speed! Looking forward to all your future garlands.

I'm so happy for you! You ARE going to have a lot of creative fun! I think your garland is enchanting!

Willow said...

Congratulations on the new computer and printer.

I know what you mean. Mine was about 6 or 8 years old last year when I got my new one. The only thing I hated was that all my old stuff would not work in it. I wished I had waited to get the windows 7, but the home vista premium is not that bad.

Congrats on your new computer and printer. I got a new printer for Christmas that also scans, but haven't even looked to all the functions it has. I bet I could have some fun, too. Your sweet vintage garland is so pretty! Is that a new header I see too? So lovely! Have fun playing and creating. Blessings, Tammy

It is amazing when we get a new computer and printer. We can actually be on it and do the things that we want to do when we want to do it. I love your vintage cards. Have a great weekend.

Hi sweet Vicki,
Oh I absolutely love your garland so very much!! It is just so beautiful and what precious images you have used, they all make me smile! :) I have so many vintage photographs of my family that I can make copies of, and I think this would be such a lovely way to display them! Visiting you always brightens my day so much dear Vicki!!

These are LOVELY ;-)
How wonderful to get a new computer ... I've been sorely tempted to update as well because I've had so much trouble with this Dell running Vista, but I'm hoping to get things squared away to USE it until it's OLD and slow before investing in a new one.
Hugs and blessings,
