Victorian Children

Victorian cards are so charming. I had these in my little stash. You might have guessed by now that my stash is not so small. Oh well, it is fun to collect silly things.

I wanted to use them in my home so that I could enjoy them everyday. I covered small canvases with satin then added the cards and embellished each picture with some of my collected dodads. I think they turned out especially cute. I used tiny bits of laces and frills.

I love how they look in my bathroom with all my other Victorian decorations. .
I love it when I get to use some of my odd charms. When you get going with the embellishments it is hard to stop so I just kept going. I used some of the buttons in my collection. My friends call me the froufrou queen because I love all of this stuff.
Have a beautiful day.

  2. Should enter these in the bling challenge at Gingersnaps, if you need to know how give me a call. Need some pictures of you receiving blankets for girls, have someone interested in purchasing one.
