Daily Graces Return #43

DG Return #43 copy

Feeling nostalgic today as I paged through the latest Victoria magazine and it hit me afresh of all of the vintage books, lace, photos, etc that I had collected for years and are no more. and since it was the May issue with an article about Mother’s Day, it reminded me how all of the photos I had of my Mom throughout her life are gone too.

Rare Vintage Inspired

I love getting the September issues of fashion magazines. It takes me back to my teenage years when becoming a fashion designer was one of my young dreams. This piece was inspired by a Marie Claire feature called “Rare Vintage” in the September issue. The photo was found on Pinterest; a Mary Nolan. Graphics from Gracie Tracy.

Book Inscription Series #3

Minnie D Irons.jpg

Book Inscription Series #3; “Minnie D. Irons from Aunt Susan 1865.” Inside Tennyson’s poem “Enoch Arden.” I love that the book cover has this saying on it- “Cast All Your Cares on God; That Anchor Holds.” Creating these as I go through my books and pull out the inscriptions that speak to me. Looking forward to some of the more lengthy ones; part of the fun is perusing the shelves. I am loving the $1.00 digital mega kits on sale at E-scapeandscrap.net; GT Designs. This image was part of a kit called “Emily’s Locket.” Not a “Minnie” but she fits the theme. I thought she looked like a romantic girl who would appreciate a gift of poetry.
