Dreaming in Vintage



Hi Everyone~

I have a love of all things romantic and I thought I'd
share some pics of vintage pieces that are in my studio.

To this photo, I added a background digitally
and created a new tag logo for my Etsy shop.

The fabulous French writing background is from
Shabby Cottage Studio for whom I design.

Here is one of my antique bottles...


And a collection of them...


Most of these are over 100 years old...
and are available in my Etsy shop.



And here is a tag I just completed for Jenny Matlock. ("H" is for Happy Surprise for a Friend.) If you notice, there is a vintage typewriter on it (part of a beautiful graphic sheet from Dezinaworld.) As I design for this company also, I couldn't wait to use that new graphic sheet in one of my pieces. A typewriter is part of Jenny's blog header--so, I thought it would be a sweet surprise!

I hope you're all having a dreamy day!

XO
Cindy

Jenny is going to love that tag. My daughter (the one with BabyE) collected torsos for many years. She has several large ones and always used them to display some of her beautiful jewelry pieces. She also has several small ones that she collected over the years. Your bottles are gorgeous..bet they will fly out of your shop!

Happy Monday night- xo Diana
