The Vintage Moth

Oh My Stars!
I am beside myself with a creative twitter (I joined Twitter....have no idea what I'm doing)
This stuff however is a creative crafty beings dream. Oh the projects to be done.
If you're not a vintage kind of person, then you may not be as giddy as the rest of us.
Abigail Mooney has a wonderful site that gives you a FREE...........yes FREE vintage clipart image daily. Did I mention that it's FREE? And daily?!

Love this apple..........but why is it upside down?Bee's.........gotta have em. There are some Bee glasses I want from Pier One, and then there's the bee pillow from Ballard. Waiting for the sale.........but I bet I could copy this image onto an iron on, iron it onto a creamy fabric......have a pillow made, because we all know I don't sew. And I'd have my own bee pillow..............yea.......I'll get right on that.Every cottagy house needs a blackbird.More birdie stuff..........you do know this is all free right?Think how cute this would be as a wrapping paper or a journal cover............GASP!Oh.............eggs...............wouldn't this be a wonderful framed piece?I couldn't leave you without a botanical.............Chinese Poppy, I believe. Stunning.This looks like an image of old wallpaper. Beautiful. This printed and framed with a simple monogram, or use as digi scrapbook paper.This was the kind of inspiration I needed. A walk back in time. This site is full of beautiful images. Enjoy

Don't trip over yourself getting to this site.

Thank you for all your puppy ideas! The trick will be manipulating my son into whatever name we want............I am not above in telling him she was already named by the breeder (debi).......Why not make him believe she's already named..............Oh I'm so horrible. I think I'm brilliant! :)

We have two dogs named by the breeder and we kept the names, but they were a little older when we got them. So, they knew their names already! I love puppy photos and I can't wait to see yours!

Hello there, Yes, Abbie's home is so wonderful and cheerful..the kitchen is "to die for" even if you don't cook. :0)

I really enjoy her image blog..she has such a wonderful collection. And I'm a Button Floozie too and of course, you know she's the founder and host of it... Abbie is such a creative being.

I've only recently begun A Vintage Collection blog where I am archiving my extensive collection of sewing and embroidery related stuff and more. Please drop by for a visit when you have a free moment. My collection is free to use also. :0)

Have a grand week,

These would be so cool printed on canvas or fabric, or some textured Bazzill in a cramy off-white or light light beige or pale pink color. Good find.
