He loves me, he loves me not.......

With Valentines Day approaching I wanted to get into that romantic spirit and create some pieces that celebrate love. I love romantic poetry and it always inspires me to create a visual to go along with it.


I hope that all my ladies are happy with the gentlemen that I have paired them up with, I tried to pick the most handsome of the lot!
This is my favorite piece, I love the muted color of the old photo album cover.


This piece was made in an old vintage toffee candy tin, maybe some lucky lady received it from their sweetie on Valentine's Day.

























Is he not the most dapper of gentlemen?? I love his eyewear and his attire.


I found these 2 wonderful fabrics with birds on them and just had to create something with them even though the fabric was not vintage. Fabric was always my first love and it is fun to work with again and to get to use needle and thread.






To see close-ups of all these pieces just take a peek here.

Hi Cheryl... Boy, do I like the "new" colorized paper and fabrics that you are incorporating in some of these Valentine's Day pieces. What a fresh look, without compromising that warm, wonderful "vintage" feel that you capture in each assemblage. Oh... my favorite? The dapper guy with his "eyewear" and the love of his life close to his heart; of course! Daryle
