This is my little girl

This page all started with a dainty gold vintage baby buggy charm found at a sale .
PhotobucketThat hangs from the page by a tiny vintage lace that I found at an estate sale, it is vintage lace used for doll dresses, nancy ann doll sized, very old and petite.I started with a piece of vintage ledger paper, it has some of the prettiest writing on it I have ever seen. Along with tea stained crochet trim and one of my favorite vintage wallpapers with a floppy millinery flower with velvet and a little tulle from an old ladies hat..This old photo was sewn on to the ledger paper before I attached it to the page. I just love this little book I found which is actually an old black style photo album .Then I looked through an old Anne of Green Gables Book, I found the words that said, this is my little girl .
PhotobucketAnother page with a pocket that holds a sewn vintage postcard and a pretty huge cluster of vintage roses cut from old wallpaper. I am hoping to get a few more pages finished this weekend! Just picked up the Cottage Style magazine and I can't put it down! I love living the vintage lifestyle and this magazine is so inspirational.

Your journal is becoming so pretty. I am getting a stronger feeling every day, that I want one too, maybe soon I´ll have the courage to start my own, and when I do I am sure I will be coming back to your posts about your journal for inspiration.
Have a nice week!

You and my sister love the same colors .She has a bowl on her site (lilylovekin tails blog spot) that is filled with the same yummy colors I never get tired of looking at pretty images of pretty things . I could not see the vintage doll buggy charm in the picture very well, but I can tell it is a perfect fit for the whole darling piece.
