Today I wanted to share some pretty little things that have been inspiring me of late:
Look at this beautiful print I won in a giveaway drawing by the super talented lady behind Audrey Eclectic!!! Miss Sedona Sally here is currently presiding over my little cowgirl shrine (what can I say, when it comes to decorating I'm all about vignettes!) until I get some glass in that frame and find a suitable place to hang it. Isn't she gorgeous? She reminds me so much of the sort of lass Patsy Montana would sing about. The funny thing is, I've had this Victorian-era antique frame and its twin kicking around for about a year, and I just couldn't find anything worthy enough/the right size for them. Looks like I'll be ordering another of Heather's prints soon to fill out that other frame!
I hope she doesn't mind my showing a couple of her other works from her etsy store. I just adore the dreamy old-timey aesthetic, and I'm sure you all will appreciate it too:
Also, shifting gears here, whilst browsing the Victoriana Magazine website for some inspiration, I came across this darling 1880s child's scrapbook! I wish so much I could find an actual one of these someday; the Victorians get such a bad rap in modern pop culture for being all stuffy and dressing in drab colors, but they were such a wildly creative bunch! This scrapbook is the most magical thing; here are some of my favorite pages, and you can see the rest here.
I hope your week has been full of good cheer!! Enjoy the weekend, and a Very Merry Independence Day to all you American types!
