Marie Antoinette

Maria hosted a really fun collage swap, here is the one I recieved from Nina ,who was my partner, I just love how pretty she made it , she also included some pretty flocked paper with a few goodies, like the pretty pincushion, that I just adore that is now my new blog banner ~ So me ! I love it ! Thank you !

All the little details are really so pretty!
My new pretty treasure . Ahh !!! Photobucket keeps cutting off my photos!
A sneak peak at the one I made for Nina ~ I hope she likes it !
Pretty feminine details..vintage wallpaper, buttons, lace ,glitter,tulle,millinery,velvet,rhinestones..plenty to dream about...........
There were chocolate english bisquits in my box too, but of course I ate them already, they were so yummy~
So excited to go yard saling this saturday, found a few little things today ...will take some pictures, I even found some good old christmas goodies, two boxes full for 2.00 !!! You can't beat that, in one of the boxes is an old tabletop christmas tree with a long strand of glass mercury garland, so pretty and hey why not the price was right even if it is May! Well my heart appointment is on the 12th, I am a little nervous. I have been put on heart meds for the last 3 weeks and have been waiting to see the cardilogist with the 12th being the soonest I can get in, after having to get all the referals straightened out.I just want to know whats wrong so my mind can rest ..I have cut a little back on the starbucks but just a little, coffee really does have some good benefits ! I love flickr and would love to know how do you make those cute little collages out of photo's?? I would love to know!! Will post my new finds soon! Hope you have a lovely weekend! xo Andrea

Sounds like you had a fabulous time at the yard sales.
The Marie Antoinette collages look fabulous. Can't wait to see the full reveal of the one you made.

That's lovely, honey, and the one you're making for her looks gorgeous also. Send me a full photo of it so I can see it. I just might want to do one too!

Oh my lord... What a gorgeous piece of artwork. I love it. What a lucky girl you are to have received such a beautiful collage. It just amazes me how talented my fellow bloggers are. I am so jealous.

Your collage swap is lovely!

Lovely blog Andrea. I was going to say I was sending you a gal over to your shop for business cards but I think I have the wrong Vintage Bella? Anyway, Glad to stop by here and enjoy all the lovelies. Good luck at the doctor's , hubby just went in for his stress test and he wasn't looking forward to it but in the end did well....he has been watching his diet and yes the coffee is my culprit as well. Nice to meet you and have fun hunting for tresures....there are sure alot out now!
Hugs Annabelle

hi there Andrea:) to make a mosaic: when you are at flickr...on the top right under "explore" on "flickr services"...then "fd's flickr toys"...and look for "mosaic maker"...the rest is pretty self explanatory...hope that helps...the Marie collages are SO gorgeous!!!

Good luck on the 12th, thinking of you :)
