Vintage News...


Good morning, my friends!

Oh, my!  What a horrible blogger I've been this last week!  So sorry that I haven't been visiting in the last few days...I'll try to catch up!  I've had a big project I've been working on for Splitcoast, and when you're a procrastinator like me, well...things get a little scary as the deadline looms ahead (today!)

With that being said, today's post will be short and sweet.  I've got some errands to run and then some kind people are coming over to try and save my poor, lovely computer.  We got some kind of terrible virus last night, so I'm working now on our old, slow, tired computer...yuck.  Oh, well! 

I made a fun little card last night with a new set of Creative Scraps from Crafty Secrets:



...pulled out the sewing machine for this one...a little crocheted lace, my favorite mother-of-pearl buttons, some yummy "putty" seam binding courtesy of Miss Martha Stewart, a touch of platinum Stickles, and that's about it!

This image reminded me of one of my favorite photos of my mother, Karen, when she was a little girl...



Isn't she adorable???  Mom said this was staged...someone's glasses (can't remember who's), and they had her holding this "True Story" magazine, which, to my memory, was like the old-school version of The Enquirer (only probably much more tame!)  Love those cute, dimply little girl knees, Mom!

Well, there you have it.  That's all I have for you today...keep your fingers crossed for my beloved computer...I want it to be all better quick!

Have a lovely day, and I'll see you soon with something new...
