I think that one of the key factors in enjoying work that has a vintage touch is the sense of nostalgia that we all enjoy~reminders of days past. The special women that I would like to introduce you to today capture this in their work.
Debra of Capers of the Vintage Vixens owns an online shop with her daughter Nicole that is full of vintage charm. I hope that you will pay them a visit and see all that is in store!
But, that’s not all. Debra lives in a huge converted farmhouse that is beyond comprehension. This is just a taste of what it is like. You can read more about her and see photos of her amazing home at Melinda’s brand-new online magazine called A Vintage Inspired Home.
When I saw Terry’s collage, I knew that it had to be part of this nostalgic journey that I prepared for you today. Terry’s work encompasses a variety of styles and methods and much of what she does provides a delightful learning process for me as I watch her experiment with so many different mediums. You can reach her blog at Terry 2 Dogs
and see all that she has created.
Ginger of Glitter and Roses is an Etsy shop owner and her work is filled with pink and shabby goodness! I love garlands and hearts and cupcakes and teapots. Those are some of my favorite things and Ginger’s shop has all of those goodies just waiting for you to see!
When I visit Julie's blog, A Vintage Chic, I am always “taken back in time” with her beautiful pieces so carefully crafted. But, that’s not all. Julie shares amazing vintage photos and stories to accompany each piece of artwork that she creates. A visit to Julie’s is like going back to the wonder and joy of childhood!
With just one visit to Jill’s blog Feathers and Flight, you will see that it is a nostalgic journey all its own. She works in several different mediums including digital art and this is just one example of what you will see on her blog. Jill just received word from Somerset Studios that her work is going to be featured there soon--Congratulations, Jill!
