Decorate With Vintage Flower Prints

I love vintage flower prints.  They work really well with Cottage Style or Shabby Chic.

The scalloped edging and green border in this print is actually painted on the class.

I like the detailed frame on this one and the overall pastel look.

This pair had dark brown frames so I painted them.

Here's another pair with dark frames.

You can hang several in a group, in pairs or just one individual print.  I love the style of the prints and just the flowers in general.  A lovely addition to your living room, bedroom or hallway.  Don't ever hang vintage prints in a bathroom as the humidity will ruin them.

Back to the Blog!

I've been neglecting my blog lately.  I apologize to anyone who is following me.  I found out my hubby is being laid off soon and I've been focusing on listing things on etsy and ebay.  I'm trying to bring in more income!  I'm sure there are lots of other people out there facing the same problems.  So . . . I will  do my best to post at least once a week and "thanks" to all of you who are following me!

Sweet Little Girl's Vintage Dress


I found this darling little vintage dress at a sale.
I love the pink organdy with cream colored design! 
There's even a little fabric flower pinned to the collar.



It was missing the sash, so . . .
I added a creamy satin ribbon at the waist.


  Isn't the skirt sweet?
It has three little tiers edged in lace.

It makes such a cute little accent piece.
Should I keep it, or sell it in my Etsy shop?
Hmmm . . .
I've decided to list this little dress in my Etsy shop.  If you're interested in purchasing it click on the link below.
