A Little Bit Vintage










































A Little  Bit Vintage


I'm in the mood for 'A Little Bit Of Vintage'


Napoleon and his friend here [a painting by Palma Vecchio] live on some vintage postcards I found on my travels last year. They have become a constant source of inspiration for me. So much so, I decided to make a few of my own.. Just bits and pieces from around my home, roses from the garden and the dusty faded hues that lend themselves to that vintage feel. The roses are actually pink and lavender.. but my mood today is soft pinks and browns with a good dash of white .. so lavender will have to wait till another post..




Happy St Patrick's Day Everyone



This post was meant to go up yesterday.... but I seem to be having 'The Luck of The Irish'.  Internet issues, keyboard not working and now mouse not working..  So if this post makes it up I'll be a happy camper.




Hope you are having better luck!!!

Hola Julie! Muy hermosas tus imágenes, y nostalgiosas tus rosas sin color... y la pintura de Napoleón, me encantaron estos aires antiguos. Gracias por tu visita, y sí las rosas de mi portada son fragmentos de una pintura mía...Te invito a conocer mis obras en mi site web! Yo también adoro las rosas! Un beso enorme, Gloria.

Well Julie, I am thrilled that it posted, because these images are gorgeous, and just that hues that sooth the spirit. Thank you for all your beautiful posts that feed my need for beauty in my life. The more carnage there is in the world, the more I seek out the lovely things in life. I think we see so much ugly, that we need to be reminded that the world is still an amazing place to be. And you do that here!
Sending hugs to you from here...

The whole blog looks stunning!

I have actually worked with a rose that looks like the largest rose in your first photo. Darn if I can think of the name, though!

Just lovely!

Hey Julie, Hope you are having a lovely start to the weekend. I have been having issues with my router thingy so you type a comment etc and then when you hit the pubish button it goes off the iternet and you have to start again........aargh. Technology I love/hate it most days. I love the tranquil colours of your roses...are you going to do a silver sunday post, it reminds me of them somehow. cheers Katherine
