Hello, dear friends. . .Love is just a word until someone comes along and gives it meaning~

The first two pictures are a couple of little projects I did the past few days. I made a copy of this vintage image of the young lady in her bonnet and then embellished it with some purple flowers on her hat and a heart shaped rhinestone on the ribbon of the hat. Don't you love the sweet expression on her face and that sweet, sweet bonnet? I sometimes think I was born in the wrong era. I put the image in a white frame that I already had. I used the same image to decorate and embellish a vintage like bottle that I had. I had fun doing both of these, and they are both in my bedroom for me to look at and enjoy.
The next pictures are of a wonderful wedding themed giveaway that I won from my friend, Stephanie, of Angelic Accents. As you can see, each present was beautifully wrapped in netting, and tissue and ribbons. I oohed and aahed as I opened each one. Notice the gorgeous Martha Stewart wedding cake topper, the sweet crossed stitched bride pillow, bride and groom mints, gold embossed stickers, tiny wedding gown, beautiful vintage bridal images, one in particular which I especially adore has the bride's dress made from a vintage bridal hanky, champagne glasses, and last but certainly not least, a bridal themed group of charms. Thank you so much, Stephanie, for your generosity. I felt like I was having Christmas in July!! If you have the opportunity, please stop by and see Stephanie and her beautiful home. She sells the most gorgeous mirrors, too. You will find her here:
Enjoy your weekend!! Sending love and hugs to you!!

Maria said...

Hi Vicki!
I know what you mean about the beautiful Victorian Era! How lovely things were ...
Have you ever watched "Kate and Leopold?"
Meg Ryan and Hugh Jackman?
So good... about a modern woman who falls in love with a man from the past who "travels" to the present accident!
It's one of my favorite romantic comedies.

The bridal theme is wonderful... love those mints!
Your hand made projects are lovely too Vicki... those kinds of things bring so much joy, ~made with our own hands and God's gift of creativity!
I know that you gratefully enjoy all the beauty around you... may this weekend be filled with cherished moments!

And WOWzers on Stephy's sweet wedding goodies you got! She's such a doll and I am so glad you got them!

Hugs and Happy Pink!
