Happy Valentines Day!!!
I hope you are all having a sweet Valentines Day with someone you love. I'm spending the day at home with all four of my sweet men! Yesterday I found something I have been searching for- this lovely cream pillow with great texture and crochet trim. I found it at Big Lots! I wanted one like this because I can't sew, but have been really wanting to make a pretty pillow like the ones you can see in the blog banner of the beautiful blog, Dream in Cream!I started by adding some gorgeous vintage lace. I used a vintage collar at the top and a pretty large doily piece for a pocket at the bottom.Then I tucked in a photo of my grandmother and her little sister and some sweet sheet music.To finish it off I added this fabulous vintage rhinestone pin!And I'm so happy with the results!!! I might have to go back to Big Lots and buy one more so I can make another one!I promised last post to show you what I found while antiquing with my sweet mama when she was here visiting. Sadly, I forgot to take photos of the pretty birthday presents I gave her, but here are the things I found and kept for myself!Love this vintage book I found, copyright 1888! I love the title too- "The Midnight Queen"!It's pages are perfectly aged, all brown around the edges. I also found this fun "dishes" flash card.
A photo of two sisters, Maggie May and Ethel Gertrude, ages 16 and 18. The date July 1899 in Atlanta Georgia. I love it when the names and other information are written on the back!A pretty necklace (not so vintage!) that i found at American Eagle outfitters. They have lots of pretty jewelry in there- who knew? Now get off the computer and go kiss your sweetheart! That's what I'm going to do!Michelle xoxo
