This year I thought it would be nice to put all of my vintage Valentines in the guest room. After all they are old-fashion and this room is a rather old-fashion looking room; they seem to fit right in. The little lady's desk that I put them on was my first antique. I remember how my husband labored over restoring it. It is one of my favorite pieces of furniture.
Most of these Valentines were given to me over the years by my daughter, they have become increasing hard to find but last year she surprised me with a new one...maybe this year I will get another surprise...I hope so.
This room is on the list for a re-do but I hesitate, I still love the color and the drapery fabric, it is vintage Laura Ashley, still one of my favorite designers. It would be fun though to make a change and update to a fresher look...I am thinking a pale yellow and blue color palette.
I have been spending a lot of time getting used to my new computer. Between that and finding a substitute for Picnik I have been a bit overwhelmed technologically. I appreciate Kim at Kim's Musings for recommending Foto-Flexer, it looks interesting and offers most of Picnik's features. I would be interested in knowing any other editing sites you would recommend.
Thank you for visiting. Have a wonderful day!
