This little girl is three today.
Isn't she darling?
Look at her big blue eyes.
She looks like a little doll.

I used some vintage lovelies on this page-music paper, an old sewing pattern, the floral frame is fabric from an old pillow case and the sweet embroidered doily. I had no hesitation cutting into that one as the doily was a bargain price of 20cents and it was full of holes and stains. Lucky me got to salvage that beautiful stitching. The crochet trim is from the doily as well. A bit of mod podge, gesso, paint, glitter, pearls, some paper scraps and a paper doily, lots of crazy stitching to finish off.
One of those 'fun, doesn't matter if it's all a bit wonky kind of pages'.

I loved spending time with you recently Rosa. You are just so sweet and so feisty all in the same breath.
I will always remember the way you looked at me so fondly and said...'I love you...what's your name again?' Hehe.

Happy Birthday Little Girl!

Oh this is just beautiful Lea! I love all your vintage lovelies. How wonderful that somebody thought to keep the beautiful doily that was full of holes and stains. I bet they thought SOMEONE would be able to do SOMETHING with it but had no idea WHAT! lol

How funny is Rosa's comment, rofl.
