Fly Girl....


Vintage photo reprints, ledger paper, vintage text, butterfly wings and handmade embellishments.

This little beauty is one of my favorites in my vintage photo collection. I use her often. I bought a grouping of photos and there were ones from her infancy all the way up to about age 14. It always makes me so sad to find old photos that have been abandoned. I have to buy them because I know that I will appreciate them and give them a good home. It bothers me that they will just sit in a box and be forgotten. Sounds strange I know, but I can't help myself! I really enjoy giving them new purpose and letting their stories speak again. Speaking of photos and stories, you have to visit Tricia Scott's blog, "A Little Birdie Told Me" and read the story she wrote for Merlie Ann. It's amazing and touching and all that wonderful stuff we love!

What a great idea!
I used your gift today to make my first ever ATC's...they are a little crude but I'm sure I'll get better in time!
I'll be posting them tomorrow...now I'm off to read your friends post!
Have a great day!
